QPR LEGEND Phil Parkes admits he will find it 'difficult to watch' Monday's Sky Sports live showdown against another of his former clubs, West Ham United.
Parkes, of course, made 344 appearances in the famous blue and white hoops, before going on to feature exactly the same number of times for the Hammers.
Speaking exclusively to London Call-In
- the R's midweek phone-in show - Parkes said: "It's a game that's obviously very close to my heart.
"It won't be the easiest 90 minutes of football I'll have ever watched because both clubs mean so much to me.
"I've played in quite a few of these games but I haven't watched many because I find it so difficult. It's not too good for my health!"
Arguably the best goalkeeper of his generation, Parkes is as good a judge as anyone when it comes to the art of goalkeeping and he is tipping new R's number one Julio Cesar to excel on English soil.
"Cesar has been voted as the best keeper in the world on a number of occasions so his track record speaks for itself," he said.
"He's come to Loftus Road with a big pedigree and he's got a lot to live up to.
"The English game is very different to the Italian game, but I'm sure he'll fit in well."
Whilst Rangers are still searching for their first Barclays Premier League victory of the season, newly-promoted West Ham have made a fine start to life back in the top-tier.
However, despite registering eight points from their opening five fixtures, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has faced criticism from some quarters owing to the style of football his side are sent out to play.
Parkes added: "West Ham were quite direct last season, but Big Sam has mixed it up a bit this season.
"The direct style got results last year, but it's a different game in the Premier League.
"It sometimes isn't the most attractive style of football and I know a lot of the fans agree with that as well, but it's all about results."
