Rangers SInce 1966-67 Without Rodney.
at 10:45 6 Jun 2024

It's said that one man doesn't make a team.
OK on that basis how do you think the history of Rangers since 1966-67 would have panned out if we hadn't signed Rodney and been deprived of his 44 goals that season?
Would we have achieved the same level of success that followed that amazing season?
Or would we have ended up being say the West London version of Orient?
I'm not pitching one against the other because both were fantastic player, but would we have had Stan play for us if Rod hadn't played for us first?
I'd like to think that the club would have gone on to be successful and gained promotion to Division 1/Premier league.
Yet success is relative and to me only being out of the top two tiers of English football for three seasons out of the last 57 for a club of our size is success.
The club we have become stems from that 1966/67 campaign.

9th May 1999-Simply the Best!
at 09:13 9 May 2024

Who can forget that beautiful sunny day 25 years ago?
Final match of the season and the R's on a 5 game losing run.
Palace with nothing to play for so they could relax and enjoy themselves.
A must win game in front of a full house of 18500.
George Kulscar relieving the tension after 8 minutes and Chris Kiwomya adding a second on 43.
Palace's Fan sent off after 48 and Rangers start looking like a cross between Real Madrid and Barcelona-sort of!
The R's are 4-0 up by the time Palace are reduced to 9 men on 81 as Woozley sees red.
Tim Breaker adds number 5 on 82 and Kiwomya completes his hat-trick on 85.
At full time it's party time and the pitch is swamped with stunned yet jubilant R's fans.
As it turns out this was a MUST WIN game as other results would gave meant a draw or defeat would have seen Rangers going through the trap-door.
For me this result tops the thrashing of We All Love Leeds because of the poor run of form we were in and also because this was the last game.No follow up game to put things right.
Yep Palace were there for the taking but everything that day was just perfect.
Even the pints my old man and me supped later in the day seemed to be extra cold!

QPR Ladies' Team
at 09:17 4 May 2024

Can anyone give me some idea of where in the ladies football pyramid Rangers are?
They got thumped by Maidenhead on Thursday.
Are they-the ladies team-playing in say the equivalent to League 2? National League? National League South ? Or lower?
Anyone help?
Thanks.

"Rangers fans will be able to bid on the shirts worn by the QPR players for the game against Roter-ham through our partner MatchWornShirt."
Let's hope that come 5pm that doesn't come back to haunt us!

Go to the official QPR website and read about Little Jacob.
It puts everything into perspective don't you think?

I watched Tuesday's game on Sky's red button.The other half was out so no Eastenders and makeover programmes malarkey.
Great goal by Dykes but the 3 points were there for the taking.
I turned the TV off and sat quietly reflecting on my time following the R's.
Being 64 I am lucky enough to have seen the glory years-say 1966-1994-.and had a great 3 days in Reykjavik back in '84.
The question I am putting out there for all those who are a long way away from drawing their OAP and never saw the likes of Rodney,Stanley,"Henry" Mancini,Phil Parkes,Clive Allen etc.. is
"What -realistically-would you like to see Rangers achieve over say the next 20 years?"

KING RODNEEE....AT THE SUNDERLAND GAME
at 10:50 13 Sep 2023

Those of us of a certain age delighted that Rodney will be at HQ on Saturday.
I get that Stanley seems to be the main man for many supporters but without Rod would there have been a Stanley?
We all were in awe of Rod's televised hat-trick back in 1970 against Birmingham but he scored other fantastic goals that were never captured on film.They only live in the memories of those of us old enough to remember them.
242 appearances 134 goals.
What do you think his worth would be now?
