Marking A Quarter Century Since Alan Mullery Appointed:
Twenty-Five Years ago (yesterday!) Chairman Jim Gregory announced the appointment of Alan Mullery as QPR's new manager. Mullery's task wasn't aided by the fact that he was replacing the very popular and brilliant Terry Venables. Mullery wasn't even the first successor. In the summer Gordon Jago had been hired - and then axed a week later! And QPR had tried to hire David Pleat from Luton. Mullery was at QPR for six months and 17 games before being axed (after a 2-0 home win against Stoke). In his six months, saw the departure of Clive Allen and the arrival of Gary Bannister and John Byrne. It saw the great 1-1 draw at Liverpool; an amazing 5-5 comeback against Newcastle at Loftus Road; and the appalling 0-4 collapse to Partisan Belgrade after a 6-2 "home" win by QPR.
Mullery was axed. The initial replacement was hoped to have been ex-Leeds and England Manager, Don Revie. When that fell through, Frank Sibley took over for the rest of the season - and QPR stayed up by one point - Final Table
