Rodney’s Return

Posted on by Site Admin

In this modern day and age it would have probably been called a damaged metatarsal but way back then in the 67/68 Season, medical jargon was more primitive and it was merely known as a broken foot. The midweek Reserve team fixture against Southend United at Roots Hall on the 8th November 1967 was to be one of the tests to see if QPR goal scoring genius Rodney Marsh had fully recovered from this injury which had kept him out … Continue reading

Growing Up In The Bush – Part Two

Posted on by Site Admin

Irish Jack made mention of Shepherd’s Bush Market as a failed record seller. I became a frequent Saturday morning visitor. It was home of the famous WG Stores who also provided records for QPR. I was a frequent visitor to the Store and to the stall in the Market which sold ex-juke box records. I also visited the stamp dealer who had a small table in the same area of the Market. I think I also purchased my first Mod … Continue reading

Is London’s Grungiest Club About To Get Glamorous ?

Posted on by Site Admin

The following article was written by Benjie Goodhart and appeared in ‘The Guardian’ on 30th October. Much of it will be familiar to R’s fans but I wanted to leave it complete:- QPR used to be skint and unattractive but with money, supermodels and a new Manager swishing around, the future looks bright. The regular reader of my outpourings (love you, Mum) will know that I’m a QPR fan. This is because I tend to shoehorn gratuitous references to the … Continue reading
