Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.

At half-time, he would go to the betting shop.

A character and great player.

RIP Stan.

One of my favourite non-palace players when I was a kid, QPR had a really good side for a couple of years in the mid 70ís

RIP

RIP Stan

A brilliant player in his heyday.

I always saw him as football's answer to James Hunt......

I was born near loftus road and went to watch QPR a couple of games in the 75/76 season. They were superb. Stan Bowles, don given and Dave Thomas up front, don Masson , Gerry Francis and John hollins in midfield and Phil parkes, McClintock and David Webb and clement at the back . Bowles was dynamic that season.

They ran Liverpool close for the title if I remember right, great side, Iíve seen a couple of their games from that era recently on the big match revisited

In the early 70s a mate and I got their autographs at Euston on their way up north somewhere - they were all very friendly, Terry Mancini was full of jokes, but the best of all was Dave Clement who was very kind and made sure everyone signed for us. It was sad how his story ended.

I went to the 1990 fixture at their place (https://www.worldfootball.net/report/premier-league-1990-1991-queens-park-rangers-crystal-palace/) and Stan Bowles was in the players' lounge after the match. Full of energy and reminiscing with the QPR faithful. Weirdly, so was Russ Abbott!

A fantastic talent - you only have to watch some reruns of the The Big Match to see how good he was. He always seemed to get mentioned when different England managers overlooked the likes of Hoddle, Le Tissier, and Gascoigne in his later years.

He was a very good footballer with a lot of character, sadly not too many like that these days. QPR were a fine team to watch in the 70s and, as monkey wrote, they came very close to toppling Liverpool off the top.

I like the story Martin Samuel quoted in the Times today: "enrolled at Gamblers Anonymous, met a bloke on the way into his first meeting and struck a bet on how long he would last".

RIP

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

I wholeheartedly agree.
He was a real entertainer on the field of play with a colourful life off the pitch.
The last time I set eyes on him was way back in the 80s when I was leaving Charlotte's wine bar in Hammersmith after a few tipples and he was outside.

Sad news.My thoughts are with all his family and friends.
RIP.
