How QPR missed the chance to sign Tottenham’s Harry Kane (BBC Video)

QPR & Tottenham’s Harry Kane

A brilliant story was told by Nedum Onuoha on BBC radio on Sunday.

Now 31-years-old, the former Man City defender is plying his trade for QPR in the Championship.

And according to Onuoha, the story around Loftus Road is that QPR once had the chance to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Onuoha claimed that when Harry Redknapp was the QPR manager, Rangers had the option to close a deal for Kane.

QPR felt that the striker wasn’t clinical enough in front of goal so they passed.

What a terrible decision!

Tottenham 1 – Arsenal 0

Tottenham boosted their own top four hopes with a north London derby win at Wembley on Saturday. And, simultaneously left Arsenal in a world of worry about their league position.

Spurs moved up to third with the victory and can now look forward to the rest of the season, Champions League and FA Cup, with renewed optimism.

For Arsenal it now looks like being a case of putting their eggs in the basket of the Europa League, in order to seal a spot in the Champions League next season.

Harry Kane does it again!

Some Arsenal fans ridiculed Harry Kane when he first emerged on the scene.

It seems unlikely that any Gooners doubt the Spurs striker these days, thanks to his record breaking exploits and consistent goals against Arsenal.

Kane simply loves playing against the Arsenal, a club he was released from as an 8-year-old.

On Saturday, Kane’s latest winner for Spurs versus Arsenal came in the 49th minute. From a Ben Davies cross.

Wolves fancied to deliver 8/1 bookie-basher against QPR; 2/1 double with Derby looks tempting

Championship pundit David Prutton has backed Wolverhampton Wanderers to continue the relentless march into the Premier League with a victory over QPR on Saturday.

Wolves head into the game 11 points clear of Derby County at the top of the table, while QPR are currently down in 15th place.

Prutton believes the league leaders will prove too strong for Rangers and has tipped them to record a 3-0 success (8/1 with Sky Bet).

“Wolves looked a cut above the rest against Sheffield United last week, it’s as simple as that,” he told Sky Sports.

“Any fears of a dip have been put to bed with back-to-back wins and they regained some of their swagger against the Blades.

“QPR got a very important win against Barnsley last week and will be brave enough under Ian Holloway to go for it at Molineux, but that could well be their downfall.”

Wolves have won just one of their last five matches against QPR, but they look a banker bet to pick up three points this weekend.

The home side are priced at 4/9 to defeat QPR – put them in a double with Derby County (21/20) to beat Norwich City for a near 2/1 return.
