Apparently the move will become permanent in January and the fee is £200,000. Looks like Boothroyd decided he didn't fancy him any more. Bit strange really.

I'm surprised they're releasing him now: surely with parachute payments they shouldn't be desperate for the fee and 5 months' wages, and he might have played a part later this season. I could however understand them not wanting him beyond this season as he's probably slightly past this best and wouldn't be up to a Prem season if they got promoted

Brentford reserves indeed... didn't do Reading any harm... ;)

The Mahon deal has been talked about for a couple of months now. The loan agreement for one game is probably due to injury and suspensions in the midfield, so it wouldn't surprise me if he went straight into the side against Leicester.

Vine's loan period ends after the game against Leicester, and there is talk of signing him permanently too for £2m - he's looked a class act and his goal tally should look better than it does - I'd love for him to sign.

As for Rowlands (boo hiss I hear you say) - well, I'm sorry to inform you that he has been one of the shining stars in a team which has been severely lacking... his display against Watford was unbelievable.

Is that it for the Brentford rejects...?

Fairly straighforward business decision I think. He is out of contract at the end of the season so £200K now or nothing in six months.....

Rowlands will never be forgiven for the way he treated us fans with such contempt that night.One Steve Hunt :sorted:

£2m for Vine again tells me that QPR are about to cause hyper inflation in the transfer market outside the Premiership.

Contempt? Hmm. Why might that have been, I wonder?

Just a wacky theory, but might it be related to the relentless, high-decibel abuse he got from the Brentford fans before and during that game?

You were desperate to get a response from him, and sure enough, you eventually got one. Since then, you've never stopped whining about it.

lol

Like football fans everywhere, you can sure dish it out, but you can't take it.

So his interview in the Standard the day before was in response to our behaviour the day after?

High decibel abuse - Hardly

He got booed, yes, given that he spent the last 6 months as a bee, either suspended through his own stupidity, followed by refusing to play due to a mystery injury.

He then compounded that by then joining the parasites down the road, what did he expect.

Any way he and you got what you deserved, another disloyal, snidey little scumbag, but then that sort of fits the profile you go for, Bircham, Gallen, Docherty.

Now f**k off back to the cesspit that is Loftus road

A player who got given his chanec of le and carrying a debatable injury.

n alleged injuryyy=tupidity or allegedly injured and keen a round of boos, yes and you know why?

You know nothing about his history with the bees. he was well respected by the fans at gp. I ****ing hate all you ****ers at the arse(with the exception of Carl Hooper) Now **** off and annoy your rivals at stamford bridge.

He's been impressing so much down at the sh*te up the Uxbridge Road he is now been given the nickname the crab by some QPR fans.

Apparently he doesn't go forward or back...only side to side.

I'm so happy our ex player is putting in the type performances to keep the a*se no where near the premiershite.

Ray Wilkins had the same nickname at Chelsea. He got 86 England caps. :shrug:

Not sure what my point is, so here is a picture of a crab. :wave:

He was a damn good player for us doing a deliberately unexciting role extremely well. He held our incredibly inexperienced midfield together in 01-02 when Evans got injured and we lost our momentum when Evans came back and took over that role. He pretty single-handedly turned round our game at home v Cardiff and his subsequent sale before the end of the season significantly weakened what was the best Bees team of the past 15 years.

I'm not saying he wasn't but he's apparently not doing the business now!!!
Which suits me fine :sorted:

He was not very young when we signed him in 1998 - I'd bet, without looking, he's 34+ now.

Pace was never his main attribute but he wasn't slow. Playing at that level in centrall midfield with the body letting you down would not be ideal for a player with his skills IMHO.

Liam Rosenior is without a club. Can anyone think of a club close to his old team Fulham that might benefit from a specialist right back .....

I was amazed to see he didnt have a club.

He had a few offers from the Championship, but was holding out for a Premiership club.
Being a free agent, I supose he can bide his time....I don't believe he would consider for a moment dropping a division or taking a pay cut.

The most over rated RB in a very long time. I just didnt get it, he is absolute pants. Always giving away silly pens and free kicks, always out of position, cant cross or tackle ect ect :fishing:

He's not earning anything, so how can he possibly take a pay cut? :confused:

Hayles has been training with former Leicester and Bradford winger Jamie Lawrence, who now runs a football academy and is the manager of non-league side Ashford Town (Middlesex).

Wilkins only got that nickname during his time unde Ron Atkinson at Man Utd, Who in someway started the holding role that enabled Robson a free role in front. So Wilkins often appeared to pass sideways, as he's been given the ball from his defence. Makele was considered a genius for the same role.
Wilkins actually had a great array of passing, but his first thought was laways retaining possession, rather than knocking it longer with a greater chance of losing it. Which of course is what someone like Hoddle often did, but his glory balls were certainly glorious, without focus on how many times he actually lost posssession.

....from his previous pay levels.....

So if you were made unemployed, you would only look at pay levels you used to earn as possibility of getting back into work?

He's what 33, now, had injury problems. I would be very surprised if he ever got near what he used to earn.

Depends how long out of work I was and whether I was ready to accept a long-term lower earning future rather than risk a short period workless with the chance of maintaining my previous level. Once you've dropped down it is very hard to get back up because your next job will offer on the basis of your current salary (I know, having taken a £10k pay cut going into my current job after being misled into rejecting a higher offer - it is a struggle persuading anyone new to pay me on the basis of what I earned up to 2007!). For a footballer, if you drop down at 33 there aren't likely to be enough playing years left in you to go any higher.

That the point though, a player who at 33 is already in a downward spiral, as he once was a premier player and is unlikely to get anywhere near the level he has just left or salary he was on imho. Also the longer you don't play the harder it gets to find work at any level, as lower league clubs don't want to pay you a salary to then take 2 months to get match fit.
