    Not many ladies either maybe two?
    There is one bloke without a hat, 2nd row in the middle. All got shirts and ties as well.
    I wonder what future fans will think of our photos in 100 years time. Mind you that's if the club has lasted that long.

    Some big names in that QPR side - Stan Bowles, Frank McLintock, Gerry Francis, Don Masson, John Beck, Don Givens and some bloke called Dave Webb amongst others.

    When we pulled it back to 2-2, there was nearly a mini Ibrox disaster on the North Bank, as so many surged forward. Fortunately we were able to 'dig in' half way down & stem the flow.
    Just glad the North Bank was'nt much bigger with many additional numbers behind us.
    Was a great day though.

    We had some fantastic forwards this season, and so entertaining to watch. Garner and Best of course, who were different class. Gary Moore and my favourite winger of all time Terry Johnson. He had pace and would mix it up by going inside and out, normally tying the left back in knots. He also scored plenty of goals. He had a fantastic record for us of roughly a goal in every 4.5 games. Fantastic for a winger. He scored one of the best bicycle kicks ever under the floodlights, but I can't remember who against. He was Player of the season the one after this.

    Any of that 1971/72 squad would be a great addition to the team we have now .

    Could not remember the great Phil Chisnall playing for us in the 71-72 season!!But his face is there in the squad!!
    As good as Terry Johnson was,i thought Morris our best ever winger,followed maybe by Spud

    Phil must of signed for Stockport as soon as that picture was taken , I am sure that him and Sammy McMillan played at Roots Hall that season against Southend , as for Terry Johnson all to your own .

    How things moved on 1974-75: Only Dave Elliot and Terry Johnson left from 71-72.

    There's some great photos in the 74/75 match programmes - Can anyone remember this penalty? I think they are still trying to get the ball out of the net to this day!

    Nearly 9 years on two 1966 heroes played together at Roots Hall.
