CONFIRMED: Tottenham defender joins Queen Park Rangers

But he can play as well from the back, and that’s what we’ll be looking to do when the opportunities present themselves this season.“He’s still a young boy and centre-half is a very responsible position, but he’s got experience in the Championship and that’s vitally important for us.”last_img read more

Now, he’s coming back with a bang and while he’s not getting clean sheets he has already delivered four assists and doesn’t look likely to stop there. Get him while he’s still lower than his starting price of £5.5m.Out: Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – £11.4m Get ahead of the curve on this one. The Frenchman is enjoying a hot streak and could do well with Everton and Bournemouth his next two matches.

He’s been on the winning side six times but has contributed to 5-0, 4-0, and 4-1 wins, which suggests he could be in line for more goals and assists if he starts.Out: Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) – £6.9m He may not have scored or assisted in two games but he’s playing well and looking devilish against tough defences, even if he does seem to be carrying a knock. The Hammers have a really nice run of fixtures now facing just Manchester City out of the top six in their next 12 matches. 9 We’ve been tipping this for a while but now he’s a must-sell player with the Eagles facing games against Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Manchester United.In: Anthony Martial (Manchester United) – £7.4m 9 Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha in action against Liverpool. If you have a fully fit squad and aren’t saving up a free transfer you might be wise ditching the Belgian for one week only. It’s unlikely the Blues would risk their star man for 90 minutes against Burnley as they should be able to get the job done like title rivals Manchester City last week.In: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – £11.2m whoops Sterling has been in very good form for club and country this season TOP WORK 9 Martial is out of contract in the summer 9 revealed Trent Alexander-Arnold takes a throw for Liverpool appointed After an excellent start to the FPL campaign, and becoming a mainstay for many, Alexander-Arnold is now being benched by Jurgen Klopp in favour of Joe Gomez playing at right-back.

first_imgThis Saturday, Drumkeen United will take a nostalgic trip down memory lane as they get ready to honour the all-conquering heroes of the 1993-1994 season who swept all before them.Under the guidance of Noel Bonner ably assisted by James Green, Drumkeen won the Premier league, the Ulster Cup, the Sportsman’s cup and the FAI Cup.(Area final)The team had a good blend of youth and experience and during the season they scored 102 goals with the three front men Hugo Bonner, Noel McNulty and Chris Breen getting 68 of them. To mark the 20th Anniversary, Drumkeen officials are hoping to get as many of them as possible together this Saturday evening 23rd August.Drumkeen board member John Cannon told Donegal Daily, “We believe this is worth celebrating as no team had managed to do it before or indeed no one has done it since.“That was our last year in the Donegal league as we went up to the Ulster Senior League at the start of the 94/95 season.“Looking back at it now, maybe we did not realise how big an achievement it was and maybe we did not celebrate it enough at the time. “The plan is to play a match against another Drumkeen selection and probably get a few guest players to participate, we’re hoping to get as many former players as possible to come along on the night.“If you haven’t kicked a ball for years, why not come along and meet some old friends.The game will kick off at 7 pm and afterwards the players and management will head up to Jamesons Bar Drumkeen for light refreshments.This was the venue of many post match gatherings in the past and manys a goal was scored up there over the years.ALL Former players and committee members are welcome to come along on the night, even if you just play for 10 mins or you just want to watch. All proceeds from the evening will go to the Oisin Merrit FundOisin played for the club at U18 level, Many players have represented the club over the years so hopefully we can coax a few of them out of retirement for one night only.DRUMKEEN TO HONOUR THE ALL-CONQUERING CLASS OF 1993-1994 THIS SATURDAY was last modified: August 20th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:1993-199420th anniversaryDonegal League Championsdrumkeen unitednewsSportlast_img read more
