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."

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

Well said, mk...says it all for a lot of Wednesday fans of that time. I really wish we had someone like him in charge now. 

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

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

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

Already, there are some wonderful stories being recounted about his time with us. 

Fuck 'em. This city will always be ours.

'Jackie Charlton's magic, he wears a magic hat' was the first footy song I knew.

RIP Jack!
