Posted on by Site Admin

The date, Saturday 7th September 1957, Harold Macmillan the British Prime Minister informed me that I had, ‚ÄúNever had it so good‚Äù and dressed in my smart short grey flannel trousers and school blazer flushed with two shillings a week pocket money, perhaps he was right. Furthermore, as a bonus, I was being taken to my first ever football match at Loftus Road, QPR v Brighton & Hove Albion in Football League Division 3 (South) My Father was a shift … Continue reading

Puma Youth Alliance Cup Group 3 Team: Crowther, Coyne, Ford, Brown, Arthur, O’Brien. Maguire, Vanterpool, Balanta, Rose, Folkes. Subs Used: German for Rose, Wright for Folkes, Davenport for Vanterpool Subs Not Used: Goodchild and Gardener Rangers lined up in their now familiar 4-3-3 formation but once again were slow out of their blocks and found themselves a goal down inside the first 5 minutes. A neat pass released the Luton scorer in the inside left channel who tuned and shot … Continue reading

QPR, John Gregory And The Future

Posted on by Site Admin

Kaveh Solhekol wrote the following article which appeared in ‘The Times’ Gregory’s hard times over with QPR in the fast lane again. The Manager can put away his credit card with an affluent new ownership team in place to pick up the bills instead. Where do you start ? John Gregory has been the Manager of Queens Park Rangers for 12 months but he already feels ten years older than he did last September. As a football reporter you get … Continue reading

Message From Kevin Gallen

Posted on by Site Admin

I have asked Paul Finney to put the following message up on the Indy R’s Website:- I was shocked and upset in hearing that the Chairman gave an interview recently stating that I was laughing after we had lost a game. Can I just say that I am a life long fan of Queen’s Park Rangers and always will be. I will never forget how lucky I was to wear that shirt. I just want the fans to know the … Continue reading

Steve Zico Has Been Drinking

Posted on by Site Admin

Being (like) Roman Abramovich ? Imagine if you were, I don’t mean having the political connections, running huge companies or employing armies of bodyguards and security people. No, I mean waking up one fine morning and realising that you have billions tucked away, plus this fortune is growing (just like Roman’s) at the rate of ¬£8.5m per day. No demands whatsoever on either your bank balance or your time. What would you do with it all ? Oh, I nearly … Continue reading

Team: Goodchild, Coyne, Brown, O’Brien, Ford, Harris, Folkes, Maguire, German, Rose, Arthur Subs Used: Vanterpool for O’Brien, Wright for Harris and Balanta for Rose Subs Not Used: Crowther and Gardner Not having visited Bisham Abbey before, I found the trip most interesting with its tremendous facilities of course and everything beautifully kept.

In Memoriam: Alan Barnes Pays Tribute To Ray Jones

Posted on by Site Admin

I was talking to Ray Jones just a few weeks ago at Harlington. The 1st Team had played Barnet on the Wednesday and the U18’s had played Palace the following day, so I forget which day it was but Ray Jones was injured and he was walking around the pitch with Aaron Goode, who was also injured. The looked like two easy going young men, almost out for a stroll. As they got nearer to me, I took the chance … Continue reading

QPR U18 (1) – Luton Town U18 (1)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Goodchild, Coyne, Harris, Ford, Brown, O’Brien, Maguire, Vanterpool, German, Rose, Folkes. Subs Used: Arthur for Vanterpool and Gardner for Folkes Subs Not Used: Crowther, Jordan and Balanta¬† Rangers dominated most of this game and created enough chances to win by two or three goals but had to settle for a point as some wayward finishing ultimately proved costly. Indeed, the visitors may well have stolen all three points late on but for the intervention of a last-ditch tackle and … Continue reading
