Wealthy QPR Turn To Sturridge For Help

Wealthy QPR Turn To Sturridge For Help

Google language translator

Championship side Queens Park Rangers are interested in taking Manchester City striker Daniel Sturridge on loan until the end of the season, according to the Daily Mirror.

Sturbridge (19) has only started once for the Blues in the Premier League this season, but he has made a further six substitute appearances scoring one goal and played a key role in Sunday's 3-0 home win against Stoke City.

Sturridge, who has played for England's U17 and U19 is a promising forward with a bright future.


Do you think Daniel would return from Loftus Road as a better player?

Should he stay at Eastlands and fight for his place?

If a top striker is gonna come in Jan ( Huntelaar??) might be a good idea to send him for a loan to a club where he will get regular games, no? He is an exciting prospect, looks very good against stokes.

Personally I think the QPR loan would do him the world of good.
28/10/2008 12:09:00
Agreed Tudor, but not just yet. We are too thin on the ground with all our injured strikers, and we've a lot of fixtures coming up. He may well start tomorrow if Evans and Jo are unfit.

I think a lot will depend on how well Daniel shapes up in the games before January. He was great against Stoke and right now he is one of our first choice strikers, what with the injuries to Benjani, Bojinov, Vassell, Evans (hopefully only a short time out) and Jo (tonsilitis). Also Hughes seems to have given up on Castillo. Arguably, you could say this is his best chance to get a good run in the side so I doubt he will want to focus on anything else but making the starting XI. If he gets the chance and scores the goals he is capable of then he won't be going anywhere. If we are buying top strikers in January, that is a different matter. He will benefit from first team games anywhere. Come on Daniel!

Not a hope in hell with all our injured strikers. Give him a start on Teeside.

If he starts against Boro and plays well, QPR won't stand a chance in hell in taking him on loan. Tomorrow's team sheet will be an interesting one. If Sturridge is missing then we can conclude he's off to Loftus Road.
28/10/2008 12:48:00
With the talent he has he would be far better staying with us as he will get plenty of chances between now and the New Year with virtually two matches a week for the next six weeks we cannot afford to let him go anywhere..
28/10/2008 12:51:00
yes I agree with that....we have too many fixtures up to Jan to loan him out.......then again...if he plays tomorrow night and does well...MH wont want him on loan...he'll want him playing !!!.......
28/10/2008 13:57:00
This really is a serious run of fixtures we're facing. Plenty of tough challenges. PSG suddenly finding form, too.
