Michael Petrasso

Recommended Posts

Petrasso started today against FC Gronigen but then left early with an injury right before halftime

On the QPR message board his play was well-received, including one individual saying Petrasso was arguably QPR's best player!

Hopefully, it's a minor injury.

He was a regular on the bench toward the end of the season before Hoilett left, so presumably yes.

Didn't make the squad for today's opener. QPR also just added Yeni Ngbakoto - another one who will be ahead of Petrasso.

Ngbakoto doesn't have that great pedigree, coming from the French 2nd tier. I'd say him and Petrasso will probably be in direct competition.

He looks much more proven to Petrasso, although I have not seen him play. 

He has over 40 youth caps for France and played for Metz who just got promoted this year. He is the same age as Osorio and has over double the number of professional appearances and has scored over 50 league goals.

I think Petrasso will have a battle...

Ngbakoto starts today and scored a goal in QPR's 4-2 victory in EFL cup. Petrasso didn't make the squad

Just putting this tidbit in the Petrasso thread, since we were all worried about why Petrasso had been out of the 18 at QPR lately.

"Samuel Adekugbe (21), Jay Chapman (22), Will Johnson (29), Ben McKendry (23), Michael Petrasso (21), and Russell Teibert (23) were invited to camp, but unavailable through injuries."

If petrasso continues to make the bench, should he be starting for us during the gold cup?

Nah needs at least have played the runtime of Moonlight to start for us in the Gold Cup.

Why don't we just start a squad in the Gold Cup that contains every professional player who's made the bench in any league? We can nickname the team the Oprah 11 because YOU GET A START! YOU GET A START! YOU GET A START!

Petrasso is not on my Gold Cup roster now in my books. He is, at best, a fringe player on the roster through injury, and is not starting unless all of Hoilett, Hutch, Johnson, Akindele, Ricketts, Osorio,  Aird, Petrasso, Bustos, Aleman, Tabla, Davies and whatever flavor of the week are unavailable. The fact is, he has played 289 minutes in the last 2 years. For me, that's not enough time to start, or even see the bench, in a Gold Cup match. 

Yes, he has been injured, but QPR only seem to want him to see the pitch when they are experimenting for next year. Cheeky chip in Qatar or not, he's regressed over the last 2 years, and needs to move somewhere where he can get minutes to progress and get back in the conversation.

Played right wingback which suits his offensive strengths IMO. If he consistently finds playing time and has the defensive attributes, he could be an automatic starter for us at RB.
