When you think about some of the mercenaries who have signed in the past

Post by ZENITH R » Mon Oct 05, 2020 6:36 pm

Watching Albert's interview made me feel all warm inside.

That's how a player should be in their post signing interview - whoever they have signed for, absolutely buzzing. I can't wait to see you in the hoops Albert, and I expect it will be some celebration when you score your first goal for the club.
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

If Albert's enthusiasm rubs off onto his teammates on the training ground then there are good times ahead.

If that doesn't bring tears to your eyes or warm your heart, then I suspect you may already be dead.

He sounds like our man on the inside, makes me think have there been many Rangers
fans who have played for the club?

Birch is of course the first one that comes to mind! :D

In that one team we had:

Gallen
Rowlands
Cook
Bircham.

We also had the other two Gallen's on the coaching staff too (and their parents putting up youth teamers, i think?)

I thought Langley might have been, Bruce possibly too. Was Impey? There have been a decent number of local lads over the years so i'm sure there will have been a few.

When he was playing for Yeading, Andy Impey was an Arsenal fan.

Great enthusiastic player and as the video shows also a great character.

I'm delighted that he has signed for the Rs.
QPR are my second team - not many Bristol City fans can say that!

It was a good interview. I do find it weird that as a QPR fan his knowledge of us seemed to only go back to Charlie Austin, Clint Hill and basically that playoff promotion season. Not knocking him, he certainly wants to be here (took a wage cut to do so) and and looks very enthusiastic. Rated him highly at Boro and Villa so looks to be a great signing. Just strange as a fan his knowledge of past players is so limited.

I thought so too, but I think his mind must have been racing because Fitz Hall is an odd pick for a winger, all told.

Tbf, he's 32, been a fan since sixteen - so that just misses the promotion season, somewhat forgettable period! (but yeah, i think he was just too on the spot to think about it properly, pretty confident he's not blowing smoke up are hoops on this one)

Good player and a nice guy. He'll make a contribution for sure.
