‘You have to say it was decent business’ – Assessing QPR’s capture of 31-year-old: Opinion

Queens Park Rangers announced the loan signing of Brighton striker Tomer Hemed late in the summer transfer window, but he has failed to make a huge impact. 

The Israeli international joined from the Premier League outfit after being deemed surplus to requirements at the AMEX. 


He scored on his debut against Wigan, but has only scored another two league goals since then. 

At the time, it seemed a wise signing, with QPR struggling hugely at the bottom of the Championship. In hindsight, though, was it a good deal? 

We debate… 

Gary Hutchinson 

“Yes.

“He’s added a stability and consistency to their forward play.

“They needed that experience and knowledge to stop them becoming such a push over.”

Jacob Potter

“It was a good deal.

“Hemed is proven in the Championship and if he had stayed fit, then he would have played a starring role in firing QPR into play-off contention.

“If he returns to action soon, then I’m confident in saying he’ll fire them up the table.”

Louie Chandler 

“I think it probably still was.

“He has fallen off the pace significantly in recent weeks but the striker was still proven Championship quality on his arrival.

“Plenty of fans were excited so I don’ think you can criticise the deal much.”

Alfie Burns 

“It was a signing that QPR needed to make.

“They were toothless in attack earlier in the season and between Nahki Wells and Hemed, they turned things around.

“On the whole, you have to say it was decent business.”
