The Seventh Taddy & Co. QPR Cigarette Card – Alfred Gittins

Posted on by Steve Russell

Taddy & Co. produced three sets of cards in their Prominent Footballer series. This is now the seventh QPR card that I have featured from the first series in 1907. They issued another set the following year and a number of these cards would have included the same players. I have two cards for Alf Gittins, one of which is an original and the other one is from the re-printed set that was issued in 1992. The pictures are both … Continue reading

Millie at the Goldhawk Club in 1964

Posted on by Site Admin

The following report was published on the front cover of the Shepherd’s Bush Gazette on the 7th May 1964, and describes a concert given at the Goldhawk Social Club by young Ska singer, Millie (Small), who had a number one hit at the time with ‘My Boy Lollipop’. The language is somewhat archaic but is, of course, very much of its time, 50 years ago. In the attitudes of this period, young Millie is perceived as an almost exotic creature … Continue reading

Blackburn Rovers v QPR

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Simpson, Dunne, Young, Assou-Ekotto (Suk-Young), Hoilett, Benayoun, Henry, Carroll (Maiga), Morrison, Keane (Austin) Subs Not Used: Murphy, Donaldson, O’Neil, Zamora. Attendance: 12,915 (including 410 R’s fans) Well I don’t get the chance to see the R’s a lot, but if Tuesday’s performance was anything to go by then I feel sorry for the 400 die-hard fans that travelled. The team seemed clueless and looked like it was a training session for some. I can’t believe that this is … Continue reading

AFC Bournemouth v QPR: “We’re too Predictable” – Harry Redknapp

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Simpson, Dunne, Hill, Assou-Ekotto, Hoilett, Carroll, Jenas (Benayoun), Morrison, Traore (Zamora), Maiga (Austin). Subs Not Used: Murphy, Young, Suk-Young, Henry. Attendance: 11,307 (including 1,409 R’s fans) Well Harry excelled with his team selection yet again. We all know that Clint Hill and Richard Dunne have no pace and need the protection of a holding midfielder, i.e. Karl Henry who was excellent against Blackpool. But no, Harry plays Jenas and Carroll who both push on, can’t tackle and give … Continue reading

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Hughes (Simpson), Dunne, Hill, Onuoha (Hoilett), Assou-Ekotto, Carroll, Henry, Morrison, Keane, Zamora (Maiga). Subs Not Used: Murphy, Suk-Young, O’Neil, Petrasso. Attendance: 16,638 (including 711 Blackpool fans) Harry Redknapp’s line-up/formation in the first-half on Saturday was like Charlton re-visited – and anyone who suffered that performance would have hoped Harry would of learnt his lesson but NO he plays wing backs who are conventional full backs and with Batman and Robin upfront we played most of the game with … Continue reading
