Crock a Hoop

The only bit of news less surprising than ASBO being the epicentre of a storm was the fact that the Little Waster's debut for QPR lasted all of seven minutes before he succumbed to injury. Don't say we didn't warn you, Hoops fans - we did.

Meanwhile, Jose Enrique made his debut for Liverpool a day after leaving us, but was unable to help inspire his new side to victory over 5under1and. Sebastian Larsson, a player on our radar until Ol' Cauliflower Face swooped, scored a superb volleyed equaliser for the Mackems, while Rocky had a goal disallowed for a sly shove on Anton Ferdinand. Elsewhere, there were debut clean sheets for Villa's Shay Given at Fulham and Stoke's Jonathan Woodgate at home to Chelsea, and all-important first wins for Chris Hughton's Birmingham and Fat Sam's West Ham, the latter victory courtesy of an early Kevin Nolan goal.

Of our four loanees, only James Tavernier started, helping Carlisle to repel Bury's attack and provide the platform for an away victory. Michael Richardson and Phil Airey made substitute appearances for Leyton Orient and Hibs respectively, though Kazenga LuaLua missed out altogether due to a hamstring problem as Brighton continued their impressive start to life back in the second tier.

Why does everyone get great satisfaction on Kieron Dyer getting injured.The guy has not come to Q.P.R to rip anyone off.He is playing on a pay as you play contract because he is desperate to play football and i for one feel sorry for him and hope that this latest injury is not a bad one and that he can play many games this coming season.

Dyer had the potential to be a great player for us but spent far too much time crocked, acting up and being a disruptive influence. A player who squandered numerous second chances. You'll likely get the same story from Hammers fans - though at least he occasionally performed for us.

If QPR have indeed got him on a pay-as-you-play deal, then the board can at least be credited with having some nous...
