Good to see he will be inducted to Forever R's on Tuesday. Really exciting player to watch and part of the team that got us promoted to Div 1 and then into Europe. Played under Venables in what was probably the favourite team that I saw...............but can't believe that was 35 years ago!!

Agreed, Giorgio. It was a good time. But, I remember SS making me a bit grumpy when I went to Old Trafford in 1984 (I think). A bad day. We lost 3-0 and he was strolling around a bit casually when some 'pressing' might have served the team better. Despite that, he is worthy of the honour!
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

Definitely one of my favourites over the years, always a battler. I remember reading an interview with him after he joined Dundee I think where he said that the QPR result was the first one he looked for after games. I think Venables assembled a squad that had a real affinity for one another and with the crowd. Not so easy these days.

No question he could be lazy (and arrogant) but then entertaining players like him often were..........We usually forgave them!

Great news! Really enjoyed watching him play, felt he was sold far too early.

Could do with someone like him up front nowadays.

If memory serves me, he left along with half the team in the wake of El Tel heading to Barcelona. Not sure we ever properly recovered despite a few high spots.

Loved watching him. Played with a real swagger. Remember his headed goal which bounced up off the Omniturf and over the keeper when we played Barnsley when the rest of the country was covered in snow !

n.b. I'm sure we will look back fondly on some of the current crop though if they should tally enough games to be inducted in the future.

I remember watching him playing at Loftus Road for Oldham and making a great impression. We signed him the following week.

Happy days.

However I remember him becoming a bit of liability in the end, too many red cards, which is why he was sold.

Can't have too many red cards as he played in most games from 81-85 until he was sold and most of the games from when he was bought in late 1980. :?:

I don't remember him getting red cards. Did he play in the Mark Dennis though ? Or were Ian Dawes or Kenny Sanson our left back at the time ?

I remember a real ding dong with Mark Hughes in front of R block resulting in SS getting a red but not any more than that one.

Don't you remember the 22 player punch up he instigated against Everton, lol. First game back from that suspension he was sent off again, that might have been the Mark Hughes one.

I remember him needlessly elbowing some goalkeeper when stopping him from taking his goal kick, there was a nasty side to his game. Wasn't too bothered when he left I seem to recall but before then he was a great player to watch, worthy of the number 10 shirt. Almost won us the FA Cup Final with the last kick of the game after a strangely quiet game for him.

I'll bow to your superior memory on that. I remember him being unafraid to get stuck in but I don't remember him being any worse than Fenwick, Roeder, Martin Allen or Waddock.

Roeder wasn't too bad, like Waddock he could look after himself. Martin Allen took it up another notch or two as did Simon but Terry 'Two Foot' Fenwick was probably the worst of them all. Broke his own leg jumping in with both feet playing for Spurs. Karma. Good player and captain for us though and I was disappointed when he left, same with Roeder. I can't remember why Glen left us.
