IT’S derby day in W12 – and tonight’s (Monday) matchday programme, for our Sky Bet Championship meeting with Brentford, is centred around QPR and Bees icon Stan Bowles.
Of course, the fans’ favourite is currently battling bravely against Alzheimer’s disease.
And with Stan unfortunately deteriorating by the day, #JustForStan committee members Don Shanks and Colin Hale provide an update on the former number 10’s current condition.

Elsewhere in this evening’s Hoops, we continue with our #LoftusRoad100 celebrations – commemorating 100 years since QPR’s first match at our famous home in 1917 – and also hear from R’s boss Ian Holloway, CEO Lee Hoos following our recent fans’ forum, and ex-striker Steve Slade, who played for both Rangers and Brentford.
Moreover, Jack Robinson stars in our new ‘Home & Away’ feature, Paul Jenkins – aka @QPR_Stats – poses his latest ‘Half-Time Teaser’, and there’s columns, too, from Aidan Magee (Sky Sports), Clive Whittingham (Loft for Words) and Sharon Smith (Irish R’s).
Fun and games for younger R’s comes in the shape of a four-page ‘Junior Hoops’, and we also get the lowdown on Dean Smith’s Brentford side in a detailed visitors’ section.
For all that and much more, pick up a copy of Hoops tonight – available to purchase in and around Loftus Road for £3 on matchdays.
