Nagy’s good memories of QPR clashes

Ádám Nagy has fond memories of playing against QPR with the midfielder’s two goals in City colours coming against the Hoops.

Nagy scored on his Ashton Gate debut, a 2-0 win in 2019/20 before tucking home the winner at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium back in December.

The Hungarian international could now line up to face QPR again when the two teams meet on Saturday (March 6th, 3pm KO), live on Robins TV.

Nagy said: “I have really good memories against QPR. That was my first goal last season and this season I scored once again so I can’t wait for tomorrow’s game because of the wins and the goals. I just want to prove myself again.

“It’s going to be a tough one, a good game I think because they are a side who want to play with the ball. It’ll be an advantage at home, unfortunately in the empty stadium, but it is still an advantage because we are in our home stadium and it’s a perfect opportunity to bounce back from defeat (v AFC Bournemouth) on Wednesday night.”

Feeling settled

Now into his second season with the Robins, Nagy says he feels more settled since his move from Bologna in summer 2019, and that has helped him communicate on the pitch and improve himself as a player.

He told Robins TV: “One of the best things is being able to play as many games as you can. Obviously, I know certain areas of the game I can improve but I’m happy to express myself on the pitch every game and I’m trying to give my best.

“This is my second year now so I’m more comfortable speaking English so I’m more comfortable to express myself in the team. That’s because I needed some time to settle and I feel more comfortable this year now.”

He’s also enjoying his midfield partnerships this season and has played alongside Kasey Palmer and Tyreeq Bakinson from the start in the last couple of matches under Manager Nigel Pearson.

“I’m enjoying playing with those two and we also have Zak in that role, H (Henri Lansbury) Han-Noah and it’s important each day in training that we can do the exercises together and that helps us to be a better partnership,” he said.

One year on…

This weekend also marks a year since fans were last allowed at Ashton Gate due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 2019/20 restart in June would be the first time without supporters at matches and even though there has been an adjustment period for those on the pitch with no atmosphere, Nagy is sympathetic to all those who have been affected.

“When this whole thing happened, we thought it would be two or three months and then life would be back to normal. Ever since, we are suffering with the same issues.

“Football players are in a really lucky position because we kept our jobs but so many people are affected by his pandemic situation around the world. It’s a pity we still can’t have some fans back in the stadium,” he said.

Lots to look forward to...

Supporters could return for the Euros as the summer looks to bring some added hope to the global situation. And it’s set to be a busy period for Nagy, who will have to manage Hungary’s tournament needs alongside fatherhood.

“We are really excited. A small Nagy is coming! The baby, a little boy, is due in the first week of June so no doubt it will be a busy summer and we can’t wait. I can’t decide if I’m waiting the most for the baby or the Euros but I think the baby has to be number one!”

City v QPR will be streamed live on Robins TV, with matchday coverage starting at 2.30pm. Sriker Chris Martin joins the commentary team with punditry and analysis.
