24 Years Ago: Infamy! QPR Knocked out of Europe by Partizan Belgrade!
- November 7, 1984: UEFA CUP: Partizan Belgrade 4 QPR 0
Perhaps the nadir of Alan Mullery six-month managership of a QPR team which (with the exception of Garry Bannister replacing Clive Allen)Mllery inherited from Terry Venables.
- A couple of weeks previously, QPR had beaten Partizan Belgrade 6-2 in the UEFA Cup (played at Highbury becuase of a ban on Loftus Road because of its "plastic pitch."). In the return game, QPR were through as long as they avoided a 0-4 or 1-5 defeat. Unfortunately, QPR didn't manage this, and QPR were amazing knocked out of Europe. And that was the last time QPR played in the EUFA Cup!)A few short weeks later, Alan Mullery was gone from QPR!
- QPR's team on that dreadful night:
Chivers Wicks Fenwick Dawes
Gregory Waddock Fillery Fereday
Stainrod Bannister
Sub: Mickelwhite

Ex-QPR Mark Hateley Turns 47
Born November 7, 1961. Hateley had a great football career (and near the beginning, Terry Venables tried to sign him from Coventry). Unfortunately his time at QPR was not a happy one. Signed by Ray Wilkins in October 1995 - as a late replacement for Les Ferdinand, for a then club record, 1.5 million pounds. Unfortunately Hateley was injured when he signed and it was a few weeks before he made his debut. He scored only a few goals for QPR that season and after QPR' relegation, scored once before being loaned and then sold to Leeds.
