Morgan Amalfitano: Joey Barton recommended him to QPR

Amalfitano has been a revelation for West Brom since his arrival on loan from Marseille on transfer deadline day, scoring one of the goals of the season in last weekend's shock win over Manchester United.

Barton played with Amalfitano while on loan at Marseille last season and he recommended the Frenchman to QPR boss Harry Redknappp.

"I am still in contact with some of my former team-mates," Barton told L'Equipe. "I speak to Morgan. I really tried to get him here. I spoke about him to the manager, to scouts, but here we don't know the French championship.

"I said to them: 'He is a good player - get him over here'. They told me: 'We don't even know who he is.'

"When he scored this weekend against Manchester United, I took the mickey out of them. I knew that in England he would do well."

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.
