Crazy Frank Gets New Job

Crazy Frank Gets New Job

I loved Frank Sinclair when he wore the blue of Chelsea.
Frank was the kind of guy you could associate with, he was a no nonsense chap who gave it all.

He experienced the good and bad times and probably his best time was when he headed the winner in the League Cup Final against Middlesbrough, from a cross by Dennis Wise.

But Frank had that ability to do the unexpected like when he scored at Highfield Road, Coventry, dropped his shorts and proceeded to waddle like a duck back towards the halfway line, it was an action that didn`t go down well with the authorities.

Just lately, Frank has been a regular on Chelsea TV, giving a thoughtful view on a variety of subjects. After the Champions League win over Bayern Munich, Frank promised to streak down the Fulham Road, something he has yet to do.

Well it appears that Frank might keep us waiting for that little treat as he appears to have landed a new job. Our Frank has become the player manager of the non-league side Colwyn Bay.

Colwyn Bay are struggling to avoid relegation from the Blue Square Bet North and the challenge is something that has, obviously, struck a chord with a player who made in excess of 300 appearances for Chelsea.

Talking about the move Frank has remarked to the media,

'I see it as a great opportunity as obviously I am coming to the end of my playing career now and have been looking to get into coaching/management."

'I have been with Colwyn Bay for a year and a half now and get on well with the directors and players.'

'Obviously the last month has been very difficult since Jon Newby left. It has been a very unsettling time for the dressing room and that has shown with our results on the field.'

'But I know the players here and I would not have taken the job if I didn't think we could turn things round and get ourselves out of trouble.'

'The first job is to get the lads confidence back up and start winning football matches again.'

'I have played under some very astute managers in the past like Ruud Gullit and Gianluca Vialli at Chelsea, Martin O'Neill at Leicester and Dean Saunders at Wrexham. I have learnt a few things from them which will hopefully help me.'

Here at Vital Chelsea we wish Frank well in his new challenge and we`ll be keeping an eye on his progress.

How old is he, 40 something? Frankly speaking, the "Franks" of Chelsea definitely have what it takes to play as long as you can imagine

There was a reason behind that celebration! Frank's partner was about to have a baby and Frank wanted to get on the back pages of the paper in case the baby was born the following day. As it happens, the baby was born the next day adn Frank was on the front and back pages to mark the occasion!
