Queens Park Rangers finally managed to ditch their proverbial monkey on Tuesday at the twelfth attempt winning their first away game of the season at the Stadium of Light but the victory came at a cost with the loss of Leroy Fer to a nasty looking knee injury.
Fer has been a solid performer throughout the season and it was his opener on 17 minutes which set Rangers on their way in only Chris Ramsey’s second game in charge. The Dutchman has scored 4 times this season and on each occasion the Hoops have picked up points [W3 and D1] and his overall contribution cannot be underestimated so the sight of the midfielder being stretchered off after twisting his knee will be the cause of some concern – in addition Matty Phillips is to be assessed after limping off early in the second half. The game against Sunderland will also be remembered for Joey Barton’s seventh consecutive yellow card – a Premier League record! Feb 11 - 7:18 AM

Queens Park Rangers climbed out of the relegation zone as goals from Leroy Fer and Bobby Zamora gave them a first away win of the season against Sunderland.

Not many predicted QPR could produce a performance like this with no away wins, no manager and no Charlie Austin for the trip to Sunderland, but produce one they did. It was fully deserved victory as the visitors outfought the Black Cats all over the pitch, taking the lead when Leroy Fer met Matty Phillips's right-wing cross with a firm downward header. It was 2-0 right on half time thanks to a hooked volley from Bobby Zamora and it was a lead held on to the end of the match. The result moves QPR out of the relegation places, with Sunderland still deep in the relegation fight just two points above the drop zone.

Leroy Fer struck a cannon blast for goal to give QPR the initial advantage over Swansea City, but the Swans would level thing late as the two pick up a point apiece in the 1-1 final.

The last two fixtures for Rangers were at home, where Charlie Austin had been in superb form, but they could only muster one goal from 180 combined minutes against Swansea and Crystal Palace and Austin played no role in it. Instead, the only goal came from Fer, and it was a cracker. Fer found some space to dribble into an area he felt comfortable shooting from and he struck the ball dead solid perfect into the top corner of Lukasz Fabianski's goal. With three goals and four assists, Fer is the only Ranger not named Austin that is offering any respectable fantasy production this season.

Combined with a win by Burnley this afternoon, Queens Park Rangers 1-0 loss to Newcastle United sees them dead last in the Premier League.

Rangers have just 9 points through the first dozen gameweeks and it appears clear that whatever ideas Harry Redknapp has in mind clearly are not working. He has several players good enough to play in this league but there seems to be no direction in their attacking or defending. It will be an interesting transfer window for QPR. Unless they show signs of righting the ship by the end of the festival season, it may be time to hold a fire sale. Hosting Leicester next week, it could be do or die for Harry at Loftus Road.

Queens Park Rangers continue to add Premier League experienced players to their promoted side, now having signed Leroy Fer from Norwich City for three years at a reported £8m.

The move is a good one for QPR and Fer alike. Fer is too talented to spend a year in the Championship and Rangers were in need of an upgrade in central midfield. The addition spells the end for Alejandro Faurlin as a regular with Fer slotting straight in to partner the enigmatic Joey Barton in the middle. Fer has goals in him, he scored one for the Dutch as a substitute in his very limited pitch time at World Cup 2014.

Queens Park Rangers are hoping to complete a deal to sign Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer for a fee of around £8m

Despite Norwich's relegation, Fer had a very decent debut season in the Premier League and he would be a good signing for any of the promoted clubs. QPR seem to be heading the list of suitors, with Redknapp desperate to add to his central midfield options before the transfer window closes.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed Norwich midfielder Leroy Fer is one of a number of players he is hoping to add to his squad before the start of the Premier League season.

Despite Norwich's relegation, Fer had a very decent debut season in the Premier League and he would be a good signing for any of the promoted clubs. QPR seem to be heading the list of suitors, with Redknapp desperate to add to his central midfield options ahead of the new season. A striker is also a top priority, with only Charlie Austin, Bobby Zamora and Loic Remy on the books at this point in time.

A goalless match heading into its final quarter hour turned in favor of the Netherlands who were able to score twice and win their group in a 2-0 win over Chile.

The breakthrough goal came from yet another substitute in World Cup 2014, Norwich City's Leroy Fer, who was given a free header as he leaped high into the air and directed it home with authority in the 75th minute. Arjen Robben, one of the top players thus far in the tournament, would assist the second goal in stoppage time to seal the deal. The Dutch attack, which is full of talent but sometimes scrutinized for their cohesion, look like they have the chemistry to cause any defense problems going forward, especially with Robin van Persie coming back after serving his suspension here.

Norwich midfielder Leroy Fer injured his hamstring in training and will miss six to ten weeks.

Norwich's Premier League survival won't be helped by Fer's absence. Jonny Howson, back from his own injury, or Wes Hoolahan, will have to provide the drive from the middle of the park for the Canaries.

Leroy Fer was the man for Norwich City today, providing a goal and an assist, and the Canaries were able to keep West Brom out in a 0-2 final.

Norwich have been miserable on the road this season, not having earned a point on their travels since September, but they found a recipe for success today against West Brom. An early goal helped set the pace as Gary Hooper scored thanks to a nice through ball from Fer. Fer then put the game away late with a goal of his own as he dribbled into the box in the 89th minute and shot past Boaz Myhill. While Norwich haven't had any attacking players consistent enough to consider for fantasy selection, they do have a nice run of fixtures ahead and Fer may be a potential cheap option for your midfield. he is currently under 9m.

Leroy Fer notched his second goal of the season, and helped make a game of it for Norwich City late on against Newcastle United, but the Canaries came up short 2-1.

On the bright side, it was a much better output from Norwich compared to their last road match, a 7-0 thrashing by Manchester City. Fer has shown to be the most dangerous Canary in the middle of the pitch, and now shares the modest distinction of being tied for top goal scorer on the club at this time. He can provide fantasy returns with his tackling skills, but is too inconsistent a player on too inconsistent a club to deserve consideration in fantasy.
