Yes R. I. P Jack.   I also saw him in that testimonial, was really surprised how skilled he was in his passing ability and not just the "clogger" some thought him to be.

I saw him play in the Revie side in Div 2 at BP in the 60s and I think he won just about every aerial battle. If he won a tackle he just gave the ball to Bobby Collins.

I seem to think he did come to BP when he was Newcastle manager to see their juniors play.

Great man manager and no mug as a tactician. He might well have been as good for England as he was for Eire given the chance but the FA never considered him.

I remember when he was manager of Sheffield Wednesday. The Town fans were singing "Jackie Charlton S**ts his underpants" and he gave us all a wave.  Top man. RIP

Yes, he has an outstanding life and football successes.

I liked the anecdote today that a fan went to get his autobiography book-signing.  Jack was more interested in eating his pasty.  He had star quality and the common touch.

He had an endless supply of funny football stories, which he was happy to share with anyone.  Sharing the fact that he had a little black book with names in it got him bother with the FA.

Like Brian Clough, he was considered too outspoken and a risk to manage England.  Our loss.

As a player he was before my time so a lot of my generation just  saw him as a bit of an unlikely character who managed Ireland,brought in a load of English players with Irish distant relatives and got them to world cups and European championships. You can't deny his achievements, domestic medals, world cup and his 'black book.' He did things his own way and was consistently successful in doing so, I especially enjoyed this reading about him this morning:

Jack was an attendee of the Durham Miners Gala. His official biographer, Colin Young, said “He is anti-establishment, Jack. He is very left wing, during the strike he was very supportive of the miners and Arthur Scargill and people like that”.

A great pundit too, so many players who "I Would've chinnned in my day."

I disagree about the England thing. I loved jack,  although admittedly I was one of those who resented him a little for managing ireland. But no matter what he achieved with Ireland,  the way he did it would not have cut the mustard with England fans. His mantra was “do not lose”, which they very rarely did, but it was anti-football in many ways, sometimes even worse than what we saw under graham Taylor.

Anyway, a great man who is loved equally both sides of the Irish Sea - that’s some feat.
