It has been a couple of years since Queens Park Rangers last broke the bank and set a new transfer record at the club. To be more precise, Christopher Samba, who joined the Superhoops back in 2012/13 for £13.5m from Anzhi Makhachkala, is still the top acquisition in the history of the club.
But with that being said, they did come fairly close to once again topping the charts in 2014/15 with the arrival of Steven Caulker from Cardiff City. QPR paid a reported fee of £9.6m to bring the centre-back to Loftus Road.
Interestingly enough, eight out of the top ten transfers to date have arrived in 2012/13 and 2014/15, with four in each season respectively. This does say a lot about their transfer policy back then but also a lot about it ever since as no newer arrivals could even come close to those figures.
On the other side of the coin, Loic Remy’s departure to Chelsea in 2014/15 for a reported fee of £11.8m is still the biggest piece of business they have ever done and is closely followed by Samba’s return to Anzhi Makhachkala for £10.4m, just a year after his arrival, with QPR losing a bit of money in that deal overall.
We should also mention that their first and third biggest arrivals are their second and first biggest departures as well. Quite a fact,that one, huh?
When it comes to famous Queens Park Rangers players, needless to say the list is quite big and impressive. Of course, if we start right from the beginning and with some of the most iconic players to play for the Hoops, we can’t miss the legendary Stan Bowles who joined the club back in 1972.
And what a transfer that ended up being as he tallied more than 300 appearances and netted almost 100 goals in the process as well. And then there are the likes of Les Ferdinand or Clive Allen with his two stints at the club, one in the late 70s when he first started his career and then one from ‘81-’84 when he returned from Crystal Palace.
And there are, of course, some of the modern-time players and all of Paddy Kenny, Richard Dunne, Adel Taarabt and Charlie Austin deserve a shout as well. Oh and let’s not forget that both Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker were a part of the Hoops before their rise to glory, albeit the former never really featured for the seniors.
