LUFC QPR fans view on Paddy Kenny

LUFC QPR fans view on Paddy Kenny

The fans on Vital Queens Park Rangers have given Vital Leeds United their lowdown on latest signing Paddy Kenny who spent two seasons with the hoops.

Some have answered questions whilst others have just given a general view of the player who helped them win promotion to the Premier League in his first season and played his part in helping them to maintain that place last season.


Was a great keeper for us in the Championship and he had 24 clean sheets, winning player of the year, but had a relative poor season in the Premiership last season. However, we have to say the back four were poor as well in front of him.

In general, I am sad to see him go but I think we now have a better all-round keeper in Rob Green.

He makes some outstanding saves, good reflexes, but prone to let in one he should save.

Kicking - 8
Aerially - coming for crosses - 6
Does he shout at his back four - 10
Does he command his area - 7
Shot stopping - 9


Are you said to see him leave?
Yes, great character, did a good job for us, got some good memories.

Kicking - 8

Aerially - coming for crosses - 7 He has the occasional flap...

Does he shout at his back four - Yes and everyone else. I get the impression he is a great, positive influence in the dressing room and on the pitch.

Does he command his area - 7 I think he reads the game well, usually quick off his line as the situation demands- and brave.

Shot stopping - Usually 8/9, though has the occasional blip.

He did us proud, especially in our promotion year. Without him, we may have missed an automatic promotion place.

Last season got found wanting a little bit at times (he was probably missing Warnock!), but there were still some key saves which, if he'd have let in, we'd have been playing you lot next season in the Championship.

Overall, sad to see him go, but not disappointed. Just feel the likes of Rob Green will give us just a little bit extra in goal - especially height wise, Kenny is not the biggest of keepers.


Good shot stopper, with occasional blip. He will be good for Leeds.

He will be missed by many at QPR.

On a personal level, I wish him, Neil Warnock and Leeds well next season. After years of giving me grief, my brother has now suffered enough in the last few years as a lifelong LUFC fan.


Kicking - 8 Generally very good, but will make the odd howler like all keepers.

Aerially - coming for crosses - 6 For me, his weakest point. Never fills me with confidence.

Does he shout at his back four - 6 Might be just me, but I do not hear him shout at all. Maybe it is because I am practically on the halfway line, or just plain deaf!

Does he command his area - 7 More a case of sometimes. Could be improved.

Shot stopping - 9 Excellent, and his greatest asset.

I would recommend Paddy to anybody and reckon he will do well at Leeds. He wasn't at his best last season, but bailed us out on many occasions.

I wish him every success.


I do not think he necessarily communicates - I think he speaks with his actions. Very quick off his line indeed. We had a slow back four in the Championship and without his swift interventions coming from his line we would have been in bother.

I don't think he was too confident on crosses in truth but shot stopping was excellent and overall you cannot lie with the clean sheet statistics. Golden glove awards twice.
