The boy's obviously tried to force it through and its backfired big time on him.

Kinda feel sorry for him but at the same time his agent should be taking care of all that sorta stuff and should be telling him what's happening.

I found a good summary of the schmozzle here. I'd agree he probably needs better advising, but his recent twitter diatribes show that you can only advise someone so much. Some people are more prone to diarrhea of the mouth than others...

A good pic of Odemwingie finally getting in to QPR:

Bizarre to say the least. And it's not like it is a top 4 club, it's the worst team in the league destined for relegation and possibly administration. Why would you beat on their doors begging for a contract?

I've got a feeling Harry is more responsible for this situation than he is letting on about.

I don't think he will, they dont' seem to often sub out defenders very often. You only get 3, you figure one will likely be a striker, one will probably be Edu or Kljestan for more defense or offense for Jones or Bradley.

You think Cameron or Bocanegra will screw up enough to lose their spot?

Not Cameron... but I think Bocanegra is falling from grace a bit. I think the center backs are going to be Cameron and Gonzilla.
