Frank McLintock Approaching 70!

Frank McLintock Turns 66! Born December 28, 1939

Signed for QPR from Arsenal in 1973 after Gordon Jago led QPR to promotion. Already a "veteran" 33, Mclintock was a lynchpin in the QPR Defense for the following four seasons including our "Championship" season when he played alongside David Webb. "Probably" QPR's best signing from Arsenal!

Recently published his autobiography "Frank McLintock"
"SynopsisFrank McLintock was a leading players of his generation and is acclaimed as one of the Arsenal's greatest captains. After transferring from Leicester, in 1970 he led Arsenal to a famous victory in the Fairs Cup and followed this up with even greater glory a year later, winning an historic league and FA Cup double. He left Arsenal in 1973 after being controversially dropped, and enjoyed four successful years at QPR. He retired from playing in 1977, to make an ill-conceived and hasty move into management. Following this difficult period he entered the often shady world of agents, and faced perhaps his worst moment in the game, becoming involved in the infamous bungs scandal over Teddy Sherringham's transfer from Forest to Spurs. Frank continues to retain a high profile in the game, appearing weekly as a Sky pundit. His is a captivating football story spanning 45 years during which he achieved fabulous success and faced shattering lows, all told with enthusiasm, humour, honesty and intense passion.
