- 70th Birthday for Ian Watson
Ian Watson Joined QPR from Chelsea for 5,000 pounds in Summer of 1965 (Possibly the first Jim Gregory era signing, Watson was one of a number of Chelsea "rejects" who did a great job for QPR). Played some 200 games primarily wearing #2 shirt but also #3 shirt and also a few games as center back. He briefly captained QPR.
Watson Did NOT play in the 1967 League Cup Final. Tony Hazell had his spot.)
Watson was our only "ever-present" in the calamatous 1968/1969 Relegation season (which shows how good he must have been). Some seasons he played few games. Others he played the majority. He played 35 games in our 1972/73 promotion season. He played the first six games of our 1973/74 season back in the return. And then he retired.
Remember him having a perfect temperament.
Near the end of his career, there was "another" player named Ian Watson (Sunderland and England), but for QPR fans, QPR's Ian was the "real" Ian Watson! - Further Photos

SUCCESSOR Harry Redknapp SUCCESSOR? Harry Redknapp [GETTY]
Upton Park legend Redknapp, below, who played for the club and managed them for seven years up to 2001, was last night installed as the bookies’ favourite to return, with Allardyce effectively given a few weeks to save his job.
Allardyce has been publicly backed by Hammers owners David Sullivan and David Gold and given the go-ahead to strengthen his squad. Wolves defender Roger Johnson has signed on loan – and will go straight into the line-up for
tomorrow’s Capital One Cup semi-final first leg at Manchester City – with Ivory Coast striker Lacina Traore due to complete a similar deal from Monaco.
The Daily Express understands that Redknapp will be the chief contender if Allardyce fails to survive.
The 66-year-old is becoming disillusioned with QPR and would welcome a return to east London.

Redknapp laughs off West Ham rumours
By David McIntyre
Harry Redknapp says there is little chance of him returning to West Ham and claims he would rather stay at QPR.
Redknapp, a former player and manager at the east London club, has been installed as the favourite to replace under-pressure Hammers boss Sam Allardyce, with some bookmakers offering odds of 1/3.
“I wouldn’t take 33/1,” Redknapp insisted.
“I don’t see that happening. They’ve got a good manager in Sam. I’m very happy to be managing QPR, very happy to be managing such a good club.”
Redknapp, who left West Ham in 2001, was barracked by the home fans at Upton Park when he took QPR there last season.
