Possible defender signing

Post by Rbee » Tue Dec 22, 2009 8:29 am

According to The Mirror

Paul Hart is set to make Swedish defender Markus Jonsson his first signing as QPR boss.

The 28-year-old is available on a free transfer from Swedish League and Cup winners AIK, and is desperate to move to England.

Jonsson can play at both right-back and in the centre of defence and has won four caps for his country.

But Hart faces competition from Championship rivals West Brom and Preston as the promotion race hots up.

Stoke were apparently after him a few weeks back. Takes a mean penalty. Must be an improvement over what we have...shirely?

I love the forthright approach of penalty-taking defenders - Irwin, Pearce (sometimes), Julian Dicks, Roberto Carlos(?), etc. Shows a certain calmness and determination. Or - in the case of John Terry- endless amusement.

Another free transfer eh? He better be good if we do get him otherwise he will be a waste like Pellicori and some of the others we have had in the past.

Hopefully he prefers London, as although Preston won't seem that attractive a proposition, West Brom must look a better choice at the moment.

Swedish fans, any views?

(I saw AIK a couple of times last summer but can't say I took any particular notice of the their defenders).

Clive Wilson - probably the best penalty taker we've ever had.

Coolness personified with that penalty in injury time against Millwall in the Cup in '95. Think I can only remember him missing one, against Southampton at The Dell in 91/92 season.

More than just a skilled defender, Jonsson is known for his well-chosen offensive runs and precise crosses
i like him already 8)

He's good but far from superior in Allsvenskan, the Swedish first division. Would be an improvement but don't except miracles if he sign.

A lot cooler than many of the fans who were wondering if anything would be left of LR if he scored? :P

Mind you, he had his back to the Millwall fans :D

In swedish papers he has been saying that he would be interested in QPR, but that he has not heard of any such interest in him.

AIK took the swedish championship (that is they won the swedish premier) this year and his nickname at the club is Mr 100%. A good solid defender in a team that conceded only 20 goals in 30 matches this season.

I would be interested to see how good he would be at QPR, I think he would be an improvement, though not sure by how much.

I dunno, due to percentage inflation in football in recent years 100% doesn't really seem like a lot to me. I mean, 110% is barely average. I think we should be looking at 200%ers minimum if we want to progress.

Would be nice with a Scandinavian player in the squad - even if he is only from Sweden
