A truly huge figure in our club's history. Thanks for everything, the great memories and the BDM in 1979.

A really sad day. RIP Big Jack CrySalute

I was thinking the same. Not being funny, you were there at the time so why don't you write one and email it to Hoyland at the admin email address and he"ll link to it.

Yes very sad news if not unexpected given his previous poor health

The impact he made on Sheffield Wednesday can never be forgotten.

For a young kid like me at the time, bitten by the Wednesday bug our starting point was the worse season 74/75, a save our skins game in 76, the Save Our Owls local campaign. We heard our fathers talk about the past, but it wasn't in front of our eyes.

We were also told about England winning the World Cup legends the lot of them. We saw this chap Jack Charlton on TV, he had won the World Cup.

Suddenly he was going to be our manager.

As a 9/10 year old kid it was like why would he come here.

What he did was galvanise a team, a club, a support to believe in Sheffield Wednesday once more. For kids like me it was that the stories from our history we were told were achievable.

Boxing Day
Promotion
Cup runs
Cup semi finals
Year on year getting better

He laid those foundations that built the teams of the 80s and 90s.

So I will mourn his passing but much more I will remember this legacy  

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre
