QPR’s Warren Farm plan ‘back on’ and Barton clarifies Arsenal comments

Tony Fernandes has tweeted that QPR’s plan for a new training ground at Warren Farm is “back on” following a meeting with the leader of Ealing Council.

Delays to the project and the expected cost mean Rangers have been looking into extending their current training base at Harlington instead.

But club chairman Fernandes declared: “Super meeting with council leader Julian bell of Ealing. Super leader .so passionate. Warren Farm back on. Super exciting . great leader.”

Earlier this week Fernandes also tweeted about Rangers’ proposals for Old Oak.

The club’s owners want to win the right to regenerate the area between Scrubs Lane and Willesden Junction, which would become known as New Queens Park and include a stadium for Rangers.

“Just passing old oak common on the Heathrow express having returned form dubai. what an amazing project we could do for the community,” chairman Fernandes wrote.

“Everyone can win. Its takes courage ,determination, putting people first and sharing the spoils for a better west london. Full stop.”

Meanwhile, Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has been in the news for criticising Arsenal on Twitter.

Barton has since tweeted: “What I said about Arsenal taken out of context. I believe the current side lack spine and character when compared to the Invincibles team.

“The current side are a very good side but their record against other top clubs in league games recently is very poor.

“Now whether thats tactics, mental strength, discipline, I’m not sure. All I do know is results say their coming up short.”
