Remembering Mick Leach

Mick Leach would have been 61 Today:

Born January 16, 1947. Died in 1992

Great, very much unappreciated, QPR Hero of the mid-to late 1960s and much of the 1970s. Leach made his debut in 1964/1965 season (Feb 1965 vs Colchester) and left in September 1979 (for the US). Although he did not feature in QPR's 1967 Cup run/triumph, did play a big part in QPR's promotion to Division One; was joint top-scorer in QPR's Relegation team (with 8); and played a big part in Gordon Jago's Promotion team; and QPR's 1975/76 Championship (almost) team.
Leach Played over 300 league games and scored over 60 goals, first as a forward; then as a midfielder (including in the 1975/76 "Championship" Team).
For quite a time, Leach was the "boo-boy" victim of some in the QPR crowd; the scapegoat; the person whose name was booed when he was announced in the lineup. But he showed true character.
