  • Tommy Docherty - RIP

    Passed away today aged 92.

    A great QPR manager but I was quite young to remember the details. I'm sure others on here will remember the times when he managed us in the early 80s

    What a shame, I will remember him with fond memories of his second spell at Loftus Rd.
    I have supported Rangers for 50 seasons.

        Met him a few times at away games but could never understand what he said to me but his football philosophy was great and exciting to watch. Had to start a rebuild and brought in Tony Currie, as he knew Stan was probably on his way. RIP Tommy

          Wasn't he manager for our 7-0 home win over Burnley?
          Brought in Chris Woods, Currie, David McCreery ?
          Got beaten up on a train platform remember that.
          His time with us was overshadowed I thought with Venables taking over after him and taking us to the cup final and eventually promotion.
          TV stole the early 80s headlines.
          RIP Doc

            Iirc Clive debuted in the 1st Division a few games before we were relegated.
            Scored a hatrick on debut.....I think.

                    R.I.P.to Doc.
                    A reasonably successful 2nd spell.

                    ​​​​​​No debuts to Goddard or Allen, he sold those two.
                    He did for Wayne Fereday, Dean Neal and Gary Waddock possibly along with a few others.

                      Yes on his full debut , a 4-1 win over Coventry. I remember noting his goal ratio for the youths & reserves and thinking he should be on the 1st team. Who knows, he might have kept us up. This is why I now think that if young players are good enough then put them in the team (even if only as sub).

                        Ah, the 7-0 against Burnley, the Glenn Roeder shuffle, Billy O’Rourke, their goalie was making his debut, without him it would have been 10-0, many of our players went to him at the end of the game and shook his hand.

                          I honestly thought we were going to escape that year, I'm sure we had a high scoring game after that one too.
                          Cor that brown strip eh
                          Wtf were they thinking?!

                            Good memory Dave.
                            It was pointed out in later times in a video, something like Danny Baker's Right hammerings or something similar.
                            That Clive Allen hits the post with a shot from very close range and another player puts it in.
                            So Allen instead of celebrating his team mate scoring is holding his head in his hands and is very annoyed

                              That kit is worth a few quid now , I remember our pitch was an absolute mud bath back then , led to us getting the Astro a couple of seasons later .I can vaguely remember being at a game and beating Villa 1 0 towards the end of that season but the damage had already been done and we were doomed , nothing changes much at Rangers .
