Last season he was sent out on loan by, the moron that is, Steve McLaren – the Moroccan said that he wanted to prove McLaren that he was wrong about him and left Stevenage in the summer hailed as their best ever player – as he rattled in six goals and set up a further six.
Chair proved that in a physical league, his talent could shine through, and Mark Warburton has thrown him straight into the first team with spectacular results.
His performances have drawn comparisons to former Loftus Road-favourite Adel Taarabt, but the 22-year-old insists that he is his own player and wants to forge a reputation in the game as Ilias Chair and not “The new Adel Taarabt.”
Is Chair the new Taarabt?
Yes, he has all the same qualities
No, there is only one Taarabt
The Moroccan has made an excellent start to the season for us, so let’s hope he can keep that up tonight.
