The QPR Team that Played on the Day that Langley was Born
And this was the QPR team that played on the day that Langley was born (losing 2-0 at Leicester). QPR vs Leicester: December 27, 1979: . Woods - Gillard Hazell Wicks Shanks Currie Mcreery Roeder Allen Goddard Hill Sub: Waddock
Managed by the "mercurial" Tommy Docherty...Stan Bowles had just a couple of weeks previously played his last-ever game for QPR - That's more than a quarter of a century ago -- before being sold to Nottingham Forest. This QPR team didn't go up. But it scored a lot of goals. And there are several First Division players on the 1979 team. (Not sure how many of the 2005 team one could say that about)
