In Memory of John “gramps” Clifford

Posted on by Steve Russell

The very sad news came through last month that John had passed away. The obituary in the Southampton match programme was as follows: ‘John Clifford was a wonderful, caring and thoughtful husband, father and grandfather. The most-selfless person you could ever meet. Even until his last days his thoughts were for others. He loved his family so much and would do anything for them. He ran the talking newspaper for the blind, and the hospital radio, because he didn’t want … Continue reading

The Missing Paddington Babes

Posted on by Finney

In May 1965 three young children went missing in the Paddington District of London. The actual area where this happened was called ‘Maida Hill’, although few, if any locals called it that. The area was populated mostly by white working class people, with added immigration throughout the 50’s and 60’s of Irish and West Indian manual workers. Many of the Irish workers found work in the Construction Industry, while many of the West Indians found work with London Transport. Housing … Continue reading

Harry Redknapp’s QPR Reign has been a Predictable Shambles

Posted on by Site Admin

Fans View – Michael Hann’s recent article for the Guardian: Back when Harry Redknapp was appointed Queen’s Park Rangers manager in November 2012, I said on the Guardian’s Football Weekly podcast that I wasn’t overjoyed about him coming in to the club I support. Rangers would still be relegated, I predicted, we’d just do it more expensively. It was one of the rare predictions I’ve made that was right. You won’t be surprised, then, to hear I’m not sorry he’s … Continue reading
