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 ask you will Galway bate Mayo? Not if they have Willie Joe...they haven't a hope of beating Mayo!

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

RIP Jack. Unhappy

The first Wednesday manager I knew of, lived local to me when I was a nipper, used to see him knocking about every now and again.

John Pearson has said this...

"I always remember after we lost to Brighton in the FA Cup semi-final, I walked in and Jack was crying. It just showed to me how much he cared about Sheffield Wednesday.

He was a World Cup winner, but this still mattered so much to him. And the thing is, he wasn't upset for himself, he was upset for Sheffield Wednesday, the players and the supporters."

He was the talisman - I really was too young to comprehend the mess the club was in during the mid 70's. It just happened to be the starting point.

But there is a lot to be said to have someone today that could do the same
