Ravel without a cause?

Seems like Ravel Morrison will soon be loaned to QPR, with Harry Redknapp saying that Morrison can be his new Di Canio (mind you he said that about Adel Taarabt). Something has clearly has gone wrong in Morrison's relationship with Big Sam, with the pair clashing over his fitness and Ravel reportedly tempted by Fulham's interest in the transfer window. 

Earlier in the week Allardyce said: "Ravel is still complaining about the problem that's he had from before Christmas - that he's got a rumbling groin problem. He says he feels it occasionally. Instead of gritting your teeth and getting on with it... he's not the type. Lots of players throughout the country will be playing with a similar type of injury that the medical team say 'you can carry on, it's not a problem'." 

So it's strange that he appears ready to turn out for QPR. He'd be a very good person to bring off the bench in our remaining games, providing the imagination West Ham sometimes lack in breaking down defences, so presumably there must be something in his attitude that means Allardyce wants to loan him out. Morrison still has the ability to be a West Ham great and has scored five goals in the first half of the season, but unfortunately appears to have more baggage than the arrivals section at Heathrow. If Harry Redknapp does coax some form out of him, it will leave West Ham with a big decision to make.
