Cardiff City vs QPR: One To Watch

Cardiff City vs QPR: One To Watch

QPR are the new 'moneybags' team of the Championship after being taken over by Forumla 1 tycoons Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore. That has seen the manager depart and former Cardiff City player Gareth Ainsworth installed into the tough job of transforming them from a mid-table side to aspiring promotion contenders.


The incoming wealth and changes saw an influx of players to Loftus Road but one name stands out above all others as a danger to Cardiff City. Scouring down the list of QPR players - you would not expect to fins Damiano Tommasi.


Tommasi is a big name in football having spent much of his career with Italian giants Roma while he has also accrued 25 National caps in his long and distinguished career.


At 34, Tommasi is seeing out his playing days but QPR recruited a vastly experienced midfielder with plenty of talent. He's not likely to score many this season but in terms of controlling play and breaking up opponents attacks - there can be few better in the Championship.


Cardiff City's midfield has not been functioned all that well of late and McPhail and Rae will need to improve if they are to get through Tommasi to threaten the QPR goal - his old legs will tire and we will need to keep the tempo high and hopefully play the brisk passing and movement tactics we do when on form.


Left-winger Lee Cook and striker Dexter Blackstock will also be threats for the Hoops.

Tough game for us. Let's hope Chopra can bag a goal or two and our defence can hold strong. You're right about McPhail and Rae - both need to lift big-time.
