I remember the day we signed him from Leicester and all the times at Burnden.

He and others opened a schools all weather pitches up Jonny Fold when he was manager at Tranmere. About that time there were rumours of them moving Rovers to Wales. When I asked him he just replied 'Bollocks, I'm not going to Wales.'

I used to go to Tranmere sometimes when they played Friday night and always got a wave.

RIP Big FRank.

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.

You are forgetting - the double double against that lot - especially the injury time winner!!!!

He was a fantastic team player too. Remember watching us play Oldham at Boundary Park. It's one of the most exposed grounds and it was blowing a gale. The flight of the ball must have been very difficult to judge. Up front he never gave it away once. Head, chest, thigh, feet (or left foot to be exact) he brought it down and never gave it away once. 

Fantastic goal at QPR is still in my memory.
