McCarthy’s chance to impress

Very interested to hear that Benni McCarthy featured for QPR in a reserve game at Tottenham this afternoon.

McCarthy played up front alongside Heidar Helguson. Personally, I doubt anything will come of this and would be surprised if he ended up at Rangers.

But then a couple of days ago I doubted that Wayne Routledge could be persuaded to leave Newcastle on loan.

Lee Cook also played in the match – in central midfield – and there was another appearance by Emmanuel Ledesma, who came on as a second-half substitute.

Spurs fielded a very strong side, which didn’t include David Beckham, and won the game 9-2.

Two of Tottenham’s youngsters played at centre-back for QPR, which says something about how seriously these games are treated. And maybe about Rangers’ lack of cover in that position at the moment.
