Wanderers Ways. Neil Thompson 1961-2021

RIP Frank Worthington


Recommended Posts

Hit me hard this morning.

I lost my Dad on 19th December and Frank was one of my Dad’s hero’s- he was a couple of years younger than FW.

What a player, a maverick and a legend. They don’t make em like Frank any more.


And that goal still blows my mind.

Such sad news.

He gave us at least three iconic moments in our history.

OT away.

THAT goal.

Best of all, the winner at Ewood.

RIP Frank - true Wanderers legend.

Sad sad day, those of us lucky enough to have watched the magician week in week out will never see a player of his ilk ever again.

We all remember the Ipswich wonder goal, but he was doing that kind of thing many times during the season and in all weathers and quality of pitches whilst having lumps kicked out of him.

My favourite memory was against Utd at Old Trafford when he ran the game for long periods and they couldn’t get near him, and of course Blackburn away.

R.I.P. Sir a true BWFC legend.

As my son has grown up, there are 3 players I tell him about when we talk about the history of our famous old club

Sir Nat, Worthy, Supa John.

Top player, top shagger and that goal. Referees don't applaud goals, unless it's that one.

A bona Fide legend.

RIP Frankie.
