Ahead of Leeds’ clash away at QPR, we spoke to Sam Hardman about all things Landan and the Hoops.
How long have you supported Queens Park Rangers and why did you choose them as your team?
I have supported qpr since i knew what football was, im currently 23 so started probably about 4, my dad supported them and although we live in the north east i wasnt persuaded out of supporting qpr .
What’s your favourite moment as a fan. Season, game or anything other occasion?
Undoubtably bobby zamora vs derby in the play off final, joint with our promotion season.
Tell us about a player that you were proud to have on the back of a shirt, if you didn’t is there one you wished you would have.
Two. Zamora and Taarabt: A lot of qpr fans dont like him too much because of how it ended but definitely adel taarabt he was so naturally talented.
What’s your most memorable match playing Leeds?
Most memerable vs leeds was when we lost 6-1 me and my dad bought tickets in the leeds end and we got hammered was hard pretending to be happy seeing us lose 6-1 to leeds 😂
Are you happy with your dealings in this summer’s transfer market?
Transfer embargo has ruined us but weve got rid of a few high wages and bough in premier league strikers nahki wells and hemed on loan which was very pleasing although both of their impact has not been as amazing as i hoped but still a great improvement.
What’s your realistic aim for the season?
Stay up now we are out the fa cup all in want is to be away from the dreaded bottom 3 although the current teams look pretty doomed the championship is very unpredictable.
Your thoughts on #spygate / EFL Championship this season?
Its just drama cant see anything will happen with it i dont see how it could effect leeds performances against the teams they played as you saw leeds didnt win all of them.
Who are your three to be promoted this season? Two automatic places and playoff winners
Have to say norwich leeds and a surprise if they can keep their form bristol city, all three have dominated and are well run.
Can you name three for relegation this year?
IPSWICH 100% bolton and rotherham all have struggled and i cant see them making a great escape saying that reading will be nervous too .
Who’s your danger man ?
Our danger man is luke freeman he is very well balanced and can beat a man easily, plus matt smiths inclusion in the team has made freeman’s deadly delivery’s even more deadly.
Can you tell us about a rising star in the youth ranks?
Currently not on loan i would say our rising star would be eberechi eze although recently he has been classed as lazy and his touch has let him down at times when its his day he is very deadly and thats the reason he was given our famous no.10
Prediction and scorers for the game?
Although we beat leeds in the fa cup with both having weakened teams i believed it will be a tight 1-0 win for leeds with probably roofe scoring if he is fit (Unfortunately he’s out!)
We’d like to thanks Sam and wish him the best of luck for the season ahead.
