Jose Bosingwa: Defender back in action for QPR

The former Chelsea man reportedly stormed out of Loftus Road when told he had not been picked to start against Fulham in December and was subsequently fined two weeks' wages.

The 30-year-old was regularly left out of the matchday squad after that but returned to the starting line-up for Saturday's 2-0 home loss to Manchester United.

And Redknapp said: "Jose made a mistake but it can't go on forever.

"The issue is resolved, he was fined and we've all moved on from it. He's trained hard and is showing the right attitude again.

"There's no question he can play. He's good on the ball.

"I took him with us to Swansea a couple of weeks ago and didn't even put him on the bench. I did that to test his attitude and he was fine."

QPR remain seven points adrift of safety but defender Christopher Samba hopes the fact they are being described as relegation certainties could work in their favour.

"There is a big challenge ahead of us," he said. "Other results were good to us (at the weekend), we are still the same number of points behind as we were before the game.

"I do think there was an improvement in our game on Saturday but we need to get going.

"Everybody has written us off and this will take the pressure off us, because nobody expects us to do this.

"We are going to go into the next matches, do our thing and, if we can avoid relegation, it will be the greatest achievement."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
