Nothing special...

Gary Borrowdale?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Very sorry if I am posting this in the wrong section...
If so, please could one of the mods move this to the appropriate section?

We (QPR) have recently signed him on loan until the New Year, and I was wondering what you guy's really thought of him?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Ben

Poor passer of the ball. Made some shocking decisions when he was with us.

3rd choice at Coventry doesn't speak volumes mate.

He's not as bad as people on here say, but he isnt very good either. If on his game, he is OK at this level. If anything below top form, he can be poor, very poor.

Was very promising when younger , but then as said his decision making became poor and you could then see teams targeting as the weak link . Leeds I think it was got 2 goals both almost identical to each other by targeting him.
He isn't very good , but are you sure this isn't a rehashed made up media story from when Dozie was your boss ,as he played under him at Palace ?

Left footed left back, and was the only one we had at the time and they were in short supply across the country.

A player who was noticable by his absence when not available but we have 3 players at present who i would put in our team ahead of him.

Average CCC left back.

Definately not mate.

It's all official.

I'll reserve judgement until I see him play, but It's not looking great really

Slow, and not quite good enough for Palace so should be ok for Raynes Park Queenies.

I thought he was OK - he decided to walk from Palace and that affects people's views in that he suddenly became a lot crapper than he was (as is always the case) - we did however get a very reasonable sum in compensation for him which suggests that he wasn't as bad as all that. He was also the young player of the year the season before he left.

However it would seem that since being at Coventry he has not pushed on as you would have hoped. He did have an injury that kept him out for a while but he has had time to recover from that and he does not seem to have made an impression though.

Jury out but do not write him off yet.

Started off very promising. He was hot and cold for a while, his confidence got dented a bit and was in and out the team. He did start to blossom a bit under Peter Taylor when he was our manager, PT played him regularly and he looked like he was going to fulfil his potential.
He then only got offered a 1yr contract instead of the 3 or 4yr contracts that his counterparts Watson and Soares were getting offered so he left. He was signed by Dowie at Coventry eventhough Dowie never really played him at CPFC which seemed a bizarre decision on both parties at the time.
He started the season for Coventry and their messae boards were quick to judge him as the one of the worst players ever to have played for them.
Being ex-palace, he is sure to play a blinder on saturday along with Leigertwood.

Lets just say, Palace fans hope he's fit to face Sean Scannell. 'Roasting' springs to mind
