Helguson departs......

Today was the day we finally got confirmation that Heidar Helguson has departed the club. His destination.... former club Watford.


Helguson leaves the club on a loan deal which expires on the 28th Decemeber.
Helguson's previous spell at Watford lasted five years, between January 2000 and June 2005, making 174 appearances and scoring 55 goals.
He then made a move to West London at Fulham. He was largely used from the bench during his time there before he moved for an undisclosed fee to Bolton.
After 18 frustrating months at the Reebok Helguson moved to Rangers on loan in November 2008 before signing permanently in January 2009 after a good run of form that saw him bag 5 goals in 10 games. Since then Helguson has only got himself on the score sheet once, in the recent 1-1 draw at Plymouth.

Good Luck Heidar!

Finally just a quick mention on tonights Kids go for free offer.
It's a fantastic offer that the club have put in place but I'm of the opinion that if the club gave fans more than 2 days notice then more loyal fans would've taken advantage of the offer and taken their kids and the future R's fans down to Loftus Road to watch the game.
In future some better promotional work is required, in my opinion, good try though.

    Indeed, good luck Heidar! By most accounts that I've read he is a very nice guy, down to earth. I hope new surroundings get him going again.

    Good luck to heider, but i wish we wouldn't muck about with the players we put out each match, namely, all successful teams have a core players that start every game, with qpr it would be based around gorks in defence, rowley, buzzy & roughtledge in midfield n, and taarabt & vine up front.
    That way we would become more consistant, win more & score more than 1 goal per game.

    I may be in a minority, but I liked Helguson and like Dexter, am disappointed he has left the club. Our loss will be Watford's gain, especially as we are still paying a considerable chunk of his wages.

    It is as plain as the nose on our faces that we are in need of a striker, yet we are letting the ones we have walk out of the door. It leaves us with an out of form Agyemang, an untried at this level, Pellicori,youngsters in Angelo Balanta and Antonio German and a young loanee, Jay Simpson. You would think that the club MUST have something up their sleeves??? Don't they????

    All the best, Heidar, prove them all wrong!!
