What's That Coming Over the Hill, is it Timoska?

Okay I know, I know, it's terrible ;)

Just welcoming our new signing, Sampsa Timoska.

The following is blatantly cut and pasted from QPR Rivals/Loft for Words... but seeing as I wrote it, I think it's allowed;

John Gregory has made his first signing of the January transfer window and has moved to strengthen the defence. Finnish Defender, Sampsa Timoska has signed from Mypa 47 on an 18 month deal as is all set for a debut against Luton in the FA Cup.

Timoska, who can play at either full back or centre back, has starred in the Champions League this season for Mypa, who were knocked out of the competition in the qualifying stages by FC Copenhagen.

Back in November, Sampsa had an unsuccesful one week trial at high flying Colchester United of which U's boss, Geraint Willaims told their official website;

"Having had a close look at Sampsa, we have decided that at this time there isn't anything we can offer him"

The versatile 27 year old is set for his debut for the R's in the FA Cup Tie at home against Luton on the 6th January 2007.

Gaffer John Gregory has said of his new defender;

"Sami will be a valuable member of the squad and for him to play in London is a dream move. He's versatile and he will go straight into the side."

Welcome and Good Luck Sami!

    The headline wasnt that bad, I have heard a lot worse jokes from you Lofty :-). Personally i think that could go down well as a song for him. Shall we give it a try on saturday. Welcom to the club Timoska and good luck.

    Welcome Sami!

    He has experience and it is a short contract, so hopefully this will be the start of a beautiful relationship. I don't know though...

    Still, undefeated in 2007 so I guess we need to keep the good vibe going.

    Thanks corp, check the address above from my employers haha about our new man :)

    Well as for anyothers, no more than I said on Saturday - i.e Avery John and a lad from Villa.

    And... is that code or something? Who is DJFP? If that is Cook, it is pre speculation, and may be false seeing as they are signing Boa Morte from Foolham

    I still haven't been able to decipher Corps code - DJFP? Can anyone else help?

    My advice about rumours during the transfer window, is worry about it when it happens!
