Jabba's Comments

"Fat" Frank Strandli was a Norwegian who had been a Leeds fan since his youth and was overjoyed to be signed up by Leeds from IK Start for £350,000. Sadly, his enthusiasm wasn't matched by his pace and goalscoring ability, and he returned to Norway where he has continued to enjoy some success.

AaB Forever says: Frank Strandli is the best "targetman" ever in the Danish superleague.

Barry Clemitson says: Saw him play a few times and didn't he score on his debut against Boro. Was a member of the Norwegian whites before signing and played as if starstruck to be on the same pitch as his heroes. As a single lad had too many take aways (seriously he since got married and got a bit fitter on leaving leeds) and extra weight meant less pace and he was sold at a 250,000 loss. After todays events might be seen as a bargain deal.

Anon says: I delivered newspapers to him in Norway, and his girlfriend was beautiful!

Ja9nge says: Fat Frank is not the nicest of people, but he did a job at my beloved club Start. He lives now in Kristiansand, Norway, Start's hometown. And last time I saw him he was munching on a hot dog :-)

Conor from Cork says: I was at Leeds v Wimbledon in October 93 and this couple sat in front of me didn't say a word all game, not even to each other, despite Leeds banging in four. Then with a few minutes left, Franky came off the bench and the two of them went loo-la for the last few minutes, wildly cheering on every touch in Norwegian as most other people were leaving. Like sometime out of Monty Python!
