    I don't think you can totally blame Harry. He was a problem under Warnock in the Premiership.

    Here is a comment from Wikipedia regarding one of the games he played under Redknapp.

    "On 15 December, he scored both goals in QPR's first victory of the 2012–13 season, a 2–1 win over West London rivals, Fulham, the second with a mazy dribble ending with a finish on the outside of his foot. Manager Harry Redknapp praised Taarabt by stating, 'It was one of the all-time great performances, I felt.' Then on 2 January 2013 in QPR's second win of the season, a 1–0 away victory over rivals Chelsea, Taarabt was played in an unfamiliar striker position gaining the Man of the Match award and assisting the only goal – described as a Pelé-esque"

    No, he'd have a tantrum and go home because it's too tough for him.

    The fact is for all the talent he had and big ambitions in his career the biggest club he will have played for consistently is little old QPR which tells you what you need to know. Perhaps instead of disrespecting club and wishing himself away every transfer window he should have showed some class and appreciation to the club that made and gave him a platform and accepted he was probably at only club that would accept him.

    We were too good for him but he could not see it
    Thats a top post West!

    He played Champions League a couple of times, and was up to that standard ability wise.

    Cant believe people still think he's any good, he's all washed up hasn't played regular anywhere since he left, a truly talented individual who wasted himself , and deluded about what standard of player he was, never quite good enough for the top level clubs? and couldn't apply himself with some self discipline i.e. his weight issues and behaviour and others putting blame down to HR Warnock Hughes , the only person to blame for his fall from grace is Adel,

    I think it was more of a case of adel having that brilliant season, struggled in the prem under Warnock, but under Hughes was actually doing ok, no noise about tantrums or missed training or anything. He was actually playing left wing and making tackles and heading the ball! Then Hughes went, Harry came in and his career has spiralled since then.

    Not saying it's all Harry's fault, of course not. Adel is his own worst enemy. Just that he seemed to be settled and ok before droopy turfed him out again.

    Like banging an old flame, seems like a good idea at the time but you know its gonna be shite and won't ever be the same.

    Love Adel for that season. Done #### that I could barely believe, literally every week at LR I was saying 'Adel will save us'.

    Bloke is cooked now, a shame. But no-one should rubbish the season he had and what he gave the fans.

    Which says more about you than him. That season was the last time we actually played football going forward and it was beautiful to watch. So it all fvcked up, that's life, but for a while something truly special was on offer. I can think of plenty of other who have pulled on the hooped shirt and given less, and most of those have been in recent times. He was just a messed up young man and imo Harry's arrival did nothing to help.
    Totally agree.
