Stainrod & Byrne Share the Same Birthday....Today!

Never previously knew: Simon Stainrod & John Byrne share the same Birthday. Stainrod turns 47...Byrne turn 45 today. Both were very popular ball playing forwards following (a little way behind) the footsteps of the two giants: Marsh and Bowles

Simon Stainrod - February 1, 1959
Signed by Terry Venables from Oldham for 275,000 pounds shortly after he took over. Stainrod travelled with the England Party to South America (along with Clive Allen) and didn't get a minute of playing time.

John Byrne: Born February 1, 1961.
Perhaps Alan Mullery's best signing for QPR: Signed him from York for 100,000 pounds after we played them in the League Cup.
