Peter Odemwingie: Back in the fold at Albion

The striker took to Twitter to launch a scathing attack on the club after having a transfer request refused then travelled to Loftus Road without Albion's permission on transfer deadline day in the hope of forcing through a move to QPR.

The club issued a joint statement with Odemwingie last week saying the matter had been resolved and McAuley and Foster are also happy to move on from the incident.

"It's fine," said McAuley. "The lads realise that if Pete is on the pitch, playing well and scoring goals, everyone benefits from it.

"That's how we're looking at it. Everything is fine now. The line has been drawn and now we're back talking about football.

"When we're out there together and everyone is pulling together we're a good side. We need Pete back on the pitch, playing and scoring goals for us."

Foster said: "It was an unfortunate incident but we've just got to carry on. Peter is an important part of our team.

"When he's on form he's an absolute world-beater, so we will welcome him back into the squad with no qualms whatsoever."

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
