Nostalgia: On This Day, QPR Reach Wembley...Also Make FA Cup Quarter Final....Ex-QPR Birthdays

Forty-One Years Ago Today: QPR Reach Wembley
Forty Years ago Today: February 7, 1967: QPR played Birmingham at Loftus Road in the Second Leg of the League Cup Semi-Final.
Three weeks previously, in the Semi-final first leg. QPR had traveled to Birmingham and won 4-1 (Marsh, R. Morgan, Lazarus & Allen). At Loftus Road, almost 25,000 saw QPR win the second leg 3-1 (Marsh 2 and Keen) to get to play WBA at Wembley the following month. QPR's team 40 years ago, today was the same as the first leg with one exception: Hazell coming in for Ian Watson.
