Both badges are limited to 100 and are priced at £3.00 each. Postage within the UK is £1.30 for any number and International rates are available on request.

Michael Thomas Keen: 19th March 1940 – 12th April 2009

Posted on by Site Admin

It came as a great shock when I heard that Mike Keen had died after a short illness. His¬† family attended the Sheffield Wednesday match at Loftus Road and at their request there was a minute’s applause in his memory. As far as the match was concerned, it must be noted that the R’s came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 as they did at Wembley in 1967 ! On Monday, the first person I met in the car … Continue reading

The 1968-69 Season – Third Account

Posted on by Site Admin

Two quotes have stuck in my mind over the years about QPR in Season 1968-69. One was at the beginning of the Season and came from the Manager, Alec Stock, and the other one was at the end from the Chairman, Jim Gregory. The previous two Seasons had seen the R’s bag a net full of goals playing good football and the atmosphere at matches was unbelievable. Our first match of the 68-69 Season was at home to Leicester City … Continue reading

In fact, Max Ehmer was playing virtually as a striker and this proved to be very effective.¬† Although the R’s can sometimes be very slow starters, a nice pass from Parker found Ehmer and his gentle lob from just inside the box went agonisingly just … Continue reading

Baby Charlie Marie’s First R’s Shirt.

Posted on by Site Admin

Charlie Marie is now three months old and known in the family circle as ‘Akos Babe Zsaky’. She will of course be a Rangers supporter and will come to games when Mum is at work. This causes a few problems because Annette is a Geordie and a Newcastle fan but myself and her Dad, my Son Daniel, don’t see any problems at all. We are trying our hardest to get her to say ‘UR’sss’¬† but she’s still a bit young … Continue reading
