  3. You see I have a problem with this. I live in Timperley and my wife is from Timperley. The guy that eulogised Timperley now where did he live? That's right, the footballers paradise of Hale.

    Maybe I should start banging on about how fucking brilliant Wythenshawe is.

  4. Well H, I knew you lived in Timperley, so I thought you might have something to say about this one.
    It must be hell, all those coachloads of Japanese tourists, all the Frank themed tours etc.

  5. I think I was just being unnecessarily unkind Walker, prob my frame of mind. I daresay Frank spent most of his life in Timperley and he did at least put it on the map.

  6. Niall, they didn't throw away the mould. It just shrank so they made Little Frank as well.

  8. Dadist/manga crossover genius. multimedia pioneer. Lancashire luminary and (literal)figurehead. Ukele revivalist. Set designer for Bob the Builder. When sending demos to record companies his covering letter was "Dear Sir, I am thinking of getting into showbusiness. Do you have any pamphlets?"
