Thanks for sharing Exos

He was a exceptional talent - the goal at home vs Preston is a joy to watch

An audacious talent the like of which we won't see again at QPR for a long time.

He appears to have given up on football. Such a loss to the football world.

Such a shame his discipline was so poor. It was amazing what he could do with the ball.

That's the real crime in all this, what he could have done with that talent. Having watched all three of him, Stan & Rodney, I would have to say that Adel easily was the most technically gifted... and despite his other glaring faults, was a real team player.

What an amazing talent he was. He was worth the entrance money alone. When that goal against Preston went in, initially I didn’t even cheer/clap? I just stood up with an open mouth and looked at my mate. Then we went crazy. Adele, If you ever get to read this....... thank you 😂😜🙌🏻

Thanks for posting this Esox.

Say whatever you want about Adel’s faults, but the man was simply a genius. Hands down the most entertaining player I’ve ever witness play for QPR.

I really thought that at some stage he would sort his head out and go and really make a name for himself. It’s a shame the way his career has panned out.

For all his faults at least there is one club that will forever remember his talent and I’m glad it was us.

Each to their own, but those who were critical of him while he was here... I honestly don’t know why they bother watching football. It’s not gonna get much better than that!

I couldn't agree more. All that one season wonder that the haters spout is bollocks, him and Townsend were the only ones worth regularly watching in those Premier Leagues matches. Flashes of Cissé Austin, and Remy are not forgotten but it was those matches where Adel shone that will linger long in the memory.
