A magnificent player and a very big favourite of mine. Thanks Freddie, R.I.P.

One of the finest players ever to wear a Posh shirt. Worth the admission fee alone. RIP

RIP Freddie.
Joining at 33 years old he would now be considered too old for our club. However he proved to be a top class player; a great passer of the ball and a free kick specialist. A Bolton Wanderers legend who had also played for Manchester City, England U23s and had two full caps too before coming to Posh. He figured in 75 games in the following two years and we were very fortunate to have had him at our club.

A magnificent player. Even with no pace, he could hardly get above walking pace, he still managed to produce a wonderful array of passes to create chances.

A true conductor of our midfield at a time when we played some wonderful football. It was a privilege to have been able to watch him.

R.I.P. Freddie, and thank you for the memories.

A wonderful player and the reason we won the div 4 title in 1974. Interesting to know the Norburn link, thanks for that snippet.

RIP Freddie
