On This Day In History: November 4
- Managing QPR was no cakewalk for Alex Stock
- Alec Stock leaves Queens Park Rangers after taking them from the Third to the First Division in just eight years. The ostensible reason given was his poor health - Alec had suffered all his life from asthma attacks - but he says he has never had a day off in all his time at the club.
- Of his dismissal, he later says: “I was treated as though I had pinched the petty cash.” Alec had many fallings out with QPR directors during his time at Loftus Road. His wife Marjorie once recalled: “At one game, 2-0 down at half time, Alec was abused by a club official as he walked back down the tunnel for the half time team talk. He thought ‘I don't sodding need this’, and walked out of the ground and went to the cinema.
- “When he got back after the end of the game he discovered the team had turned it around to win 3-2 - and the same official was now singing his praises.”
- Alec had the last laugh as his replacement, Tommy Docherty, lasted just 28 days. Alec died on 16th April 2001. Give Me Football
