Best player (You have seen) in QPR history...

Postby QpRsmith » Mon Feb 27, 2017 12:33 pm

Just a thought that struck me as i was reading the opposite thread started by NW. :tu

So similar to that, who is the best you have seen? I say "you have seen" to generate a bit more discussion otherwise it would be the same few players i suspect.

As the definition of Best Player can spread across many categories - let's put this under a few different questions....


Best Money Signing?

Best Free Transfer?

Best Loan?

Best Actual Footballer?

Nice new Avatar by the way QpRsmith

Here I go - based on who I have seen play...

Best Money Signing?

Sir Les. Given what he cost and what he did for the club, fantastic!

Best Free Transfer?

Clint Hill. Legend. Considering what the club went through whilst he was here he was a fantastic captain and player of the year twice. Hope he comes back as a manager one day.

Best Loan?

Akos Buzsaky - he counts as he was a loan to begin with - and was particularly good whilst on loan. He was pure class on his day at a time when we'd had a few years of some diabolical players.

Best Actual Footballer?

Adel Taarabt. Genius player, sadly with the wrong head.

So tricky. I saw the team of Stan Bowles etc but its really too far ago. I saw obviously the Venables team of Clive Allen etc but really as I get older my memory fades so I will concentrate on recent players

Best Money Signing? Charlie

Best Free Transfer? Adel (though maybe we bought him)

Best Loan? Wayne Routledge was pretty good.Did we loan Lee Cook aat some point ?

Best Actual Footballer? Adel

Overall The Best Player you have seen at QPR Is...? Adel, simply brilliant and a total joy to watch in that one season.

Then again, Stan, Gerry Francis, Clive Allen, Lee Cook, Curry, too many really.

I am finding this hard, I was so young when I first started watching QPR just remember thinking all of the players back then (late 70's / early 80s) seemed like world beaters, as we go though the years we have had some great players in their own right with superb defenders like McDonald and Maddix who were sold and so consistent, Paul Parker was one of my favourites..have you even seen someone so small jump so high?, we had Les, and yes Adel who is one of the most technically gifted players we have ever had (that I have seen)

Will try to give this some thought but may have put a selection of payers down for each section :pray

This just too difficult. My first match was in 1968 so that's a lot of players and some memorable seasons.
My all time no.1 is Stan Bowles but there have been so many over the years.
By choosing Stan I am obviously putting him ahead of Rodney Marsh, Adel Taraabt, Tony Currie and other players of a similar type. But I'm not sure how you compare him with completely different players like Dave Clement or Charlie Austin or Phil Parkes or Paul Parker or Dave Thomas or dozens of others!!!
