QPR latest: Club reveal stadium plans, Mutch backs Rs to survive

Loftus Road QPR

The latest Queens Park Rangers news, views and rumours.

Tony Fernandes

QPR have revealed plans to build a 40,000 seater stadium in Old Oak, west London.

The Rs will send out 50,000 newsletters to residents and businesses as part of proposals to move away from Loftus Road.

“We are looking to deliver much more than just a stadium," owner Tony Fernandes told the club's official website.

"We want to create a new destination that we propose to call ‘New Queens Park’. It will serve as a catalyst for regeneration, creating thousands of new jobs and homes for local people."

Jordon Mutch

Meanwhile, Rs midfielder Jordon Mutch, brought to west London for £6 million this summer, has backed QPR to stay up this season.

Asked whether his current situation compares to that of his time at relegated Cardiff last year, Mutch told reporters: “It’s totally different.

"There are a lot of experienced top quality players at QPR and a good mix. There were a lot of new players who had never played in the Premier League at Cardiff.”

Harry Redknapp

Elsewhere, Rs boss Harry Redknapp has slammed the England team after their dull 1-0 win over Norway.

“Here we go again, a few months after a disastrous World Cup: yet another massive letdown for everyone," he wrote in the Sun.

"It is disappointment after disappointment. Half the players don’t give a toss. The fans can’t be bothered to watch them.

“Managers of the Premier League clubs take an interest just to see if their players are going to come back injured from international duty. I don’t blame the supporters for not being interested in England at the moment. Why should they be?"
