With the suspension of the EFL, there will be a few from QPR who are worried that they won’t be able to watch Eberechi Eze play in blue and white hoops again – and that’s got to sting.
The coronavirus outbreak has put a huge amount of insecurity around football, and while, of course, health overrules the importance of football, many fans will be frustrated that their season has been shut down just as the club was hitting some real form.
However, while the playoffs is a bit of a pipedream, it is probably more likely than them being able to hang on to the brilliant Eberechi Eze in the summer, meaning they could have seen their star man for the last time.
If Eze had to go, where would you like to see him?
If this is true, it’s a huge blow for the R’s that will take some getting over.
It’s not just his 12 goals and eight assists that the club would miss, it’s his personality and flair. When Eze gets the ball, it’s as if you can tell something is about to happen. The way fans rise to their feet every time he gets the ball, the way they hold their breath as he eases past players with his dribbling ability – that is what will be missed more than the goals he scores.
When you have a player such as Eze, you want him to go on and achieve – and that’s why it’s exciting Spurs are in the driver’s seat to get him, rather than Palace or Sheffield United.
His talent is there for all to see, not just in his performances but in his stats, too. Not only does he have the goals and assists, but he also averages 3 dribbles per match, 1.9 key passes per game and an average passing percentage of 86.4 per cent – proving his all-round ability as an attacking midfielder. The boy has it all.
Sure, watching a player as classy as Eze leave the club will sting, but the perfect antidote would be to watch him flourish at the very highest level.
