I met him a few times in the Bar at S6.  A funny man. A rare phenomenon in being a good player and a good Manager.

He did many good things for his clubs and for Ireland too.

R.I.P. Big Jack.

Condolences to his family and friends.

I think I'm right in saying he worked without a contract at all of his clubs. For most of today's managers, the contract seems to be the thing dearest to their hearts.

He was a breath of fresh air at Hillsborough. How we could do with him right now.

RIP Jack.

Sad news,very popular guy,a name recognised world wide that stems from a reputation built on hard work and a professional attitude.

Met him a few times while he was Wednesday manager in both a professional and social setting,he could certainly talk,his observations and opinions were always constructive and forthright.

RIP Jack

Watching the tributes paid to Charlton on today's 'Football Focus' & hearing the story of how, when he was the Rep. of Ireland manager he would take himself off fishing in the Republic.  He'd call into a bar, not have any money on him but ask the landlord of the bar to cash him a cheque, which they did & gave him the money to buy drinks.  Only thing is, the landlord wouldn't cash the cheque but later frame it & stick it up on the wall. 

 

They reckon there's loads of bars all over Ireland with his cheques on the walls.  In affect, he never paid for a pint.   

 

It was also touching to see him award Bobby Charlton an award back in 2008 & say he was the best player he's ever seen & "He's my brother".

I remember watching the penalty shootout v Romania at Italia 90

 

I was in my second year at Uni and probably should have been at a lecture but was round a mates house off Ecclesall Road with a gang of lads drinking cans of stones.

 

Great memories.

I remember Jack and Maurice Setters coming in to the Park Hotel after a night match - loads of people offered to buy them a pint but Jack said they'd bought his ale already - they paid his wages.

 

One of the very best.

Not true, apparently.
