Bowles, Stan Met Stan when I worked at Brentford. We became good friends. Stan came with me to do a training session with Bookham Colts. My father in-law made Stan tea. I used to meet up with Stan for a pint and a bet. I want to wish him all the best. I no longer see Stan, I think he moved back to Manchester

Bowles, Stan Stan Bowles was the best player in my view to have ever pulled on a QPR shirt. Supremely talented and a maverick. His autobiography is a must read for any Rangers fan who remembers the heady days of the mid to late seventies. So sad that he has recently been diagnosed with Alzhimers disease.

Bowles, Stan When I was a small child growing up I always remember his name when the results were given out on a Saturday evening and then if I did stop up to watch match of the day he was great.....

Bowles, Stan Stan was my son's hero, in the 70's. What a player ! Although he must now be in his 60's, he will still be remembered as a long haired showman. Oh to be young again !!
