R you sure?!

R you sure?!

You would have thought scoring four goals in three successive games would be enought to convince Q.P.R manager Jim Magilton that he didn't need another striker.

However, the 'form' of Nathan Ellington has done otherwise and according the Daily Star, which doesn't even cover world news, let alone obscure Football League transfers, the Hornet's forward is a target for the R's.

Ellington recently bagged his first of the season and his first in eighteen months for the Hornet's to take him up to a whopping five in a Watford shirt since arriving in 2007. Where he will fit in alongside Jay Simpson, whose bagged that many goals in 9 Q.P.R starts, Adel Taarabt and Akos Buszaky, neither of whom can stop scoring, who, frankly cares, as long as we get him off the wage bill.

And don't get me wrong, this isn't another Ellington-bashing article, the guy quite clearly has given his all this season and looks twice the player he was during his first spell, but as the man himself said, it's best for all parties if he leaves, a.s.a.p.

That said, anyone wishing to 'drive him there' themselves should sign their name below!

...only joking.

The bloke has clearly lost his way at Watford after a great spell at Wigan. However I'm not sure we're the club that should give him a chance to get his form back because I think we can do better.

Hmmm... what price a Helguson - Ellington swap deal in the January windown then? The Iceman is back for WBA!

Would be suprised if QPR would agree to a Helguson - Ellington swap as they are probably well aware we want him off the payroll and he is also available for nothing at the end of the season anyway. We may get a season loan swap.

Lets hope H can stay off the treatment table.. We need a fully fit Ice Man.. I just hope we (the fans) aren't hoping for too much.. Yes he has had more prem time but he is getting on too... He can't be any worse than what we've already got up front..

Bit Harsh 1881, It seems we have more of a problem in defence than up front at the moment, True, with H playing, he may be able to hold the ball up a bit more, but Graham has worked his nuts off...

It's probably not so much a case of them being able to get Ellington for nothing (because thankfully his contract expires in the summer) it's more a case of getting H off their books. QPR want to offload him and probably see H as a bigger liability because he only signed a permanent deal in Jan 2009 and that would still have some time to run. That's why they are paying half his wages during the initial loan spell.
