    Yes a shame .must be hard for family and friends QPR are looking at doing a testimonial .but in my opinion instead of asking working class fans to stick their hands in there pockets. if all the QPR players donated a weeks wages he would be able to be cared for to the highest of standards and get the best treatment without the family worrying about the cost

    Sad, very sad. I grew up with his son Carl and we used to mess about with his England caps in his mams house on Ashley lane. I know he's getting looked after very well off Andrea and Tracey. Such a Shame he can't get a testimonial from QPR.. HE'S ONLY THEIR GREATEST FUCKING PLAYER FOR GOD'S SAKE !! I just hope he doesn't suffer. #legend.

    QPR did a special day for him a while ago, Stan was there, not sure if he actually got any money from it though

    Very sad. Also from the comments in the Guardian they seem a decent bunch on there.

    I believe so. But it seems they aren't doin a lot to assist in a testimonial.

    It's barm so STFU.
    So sad to read about Stan's illness but at least he has got a very supportive family and hopefully some funds can be raised to help with his future care.

    His league debut for City as an 18 year old was stunning, a 5-2 win at Maine Rd against Sheff Utd in 67/68 where Stan scored twice and from memory had a hand in at least one other goal. His talent and potential stood out even in that title-winning team, it was such a pity that he was so headstrong and didn't listen more to Joe Mercer's advice, we could have won more trophies in the 70s with Stan in a City shirt.
