"We join in mourning the passing of former QPR wing-half George Petchey, aged 88. Born in Whitechapel on June 24th 1931, George moved from West Ham to Rangers in July 1953. He played 278 league and cup games for us and scored 24 goals over seven years, which included Alec Stock’s first season at QPR.
George transferred to Crystal Palace in June 1960. After retirement from playing he managed Leyton Orient and Millwall. RIP"
Utter dross this year. Shambolic, turgid, joyless stodge.
I'm currently watching Barca winning 2-1 at Leganes in a dog of a game and wondering how none of the top three teams can get it together long enough to pull away from the mediocrity that surrounds them.
Posted this on the fred, but it's probably a topic of it's own.
"I think our defensive problems stem from our lack of control in midfield. We're not dominating possession, teams often run right through our midfield like drugged-up streakers, and if we bought Moore, Maldini, McGrath and Cafú they'd be under pressure too."
What I wouldn't give for a controlling midfield player. Anyone seen Faurlin recently?
