I will share my own personal experiences with you relational to Frank in the next day or two. He was a Claret through and through and did everything in his power to keep Burnley Football Club viable in the most critical of times. I know he had his detractors but he kept this great club of ours going on a shoestring. Rest in Peace Frank.

I always thought his was 'Teasdaleout'. Seriously though, he did what he had to when he had to.
RIP to a true Claret :(

Frank was one of my best English friends . we had good times both in England and Mauritius . He was a gem of a man and every fibre of his nerve was Burnley . he faced difficult time when he was the president . Still he managed it with aplomb for its survival . A great for Burnley .He
should be honoured by the club .

I was one of those who shouted Teasdale Out and sometimes even less polite versions in the late 80s/early 90s.

As the Chairman, he was taking the brunt of what the fans saw as aimless drift on and off the field.

With time, it was perhaps more appropriate to be grateful for the fact that we had someone prepared to even be at the helm of the ship.

Yes, mistakes were made but I think few could doubt that Frank Teasdale had the club's best interests at heart. I'll always remember the video of him immediately after the Orient win - a fan first and foremost.

My condolences to his family at this sad time.

They really were Kak days watching the Clarets and Teasdale-out, Bas Dearing and all didn't,t half take some stick at a time we could even have ground shared with Colne Dynamo's.............but they were all Clarets at heart and slowly dragged us back from the brink.

Sad day in the history of our fine club.
