Thanks bri...thats a really good read. There's been loads of really good media features and articles paying tribute to Big Jack since he passed away. Almost uniformly though, his 6 years at Wednesday (and also his spell at Boro) have been regarded as minor, unimportant or even completely disregarded by the national press.

We know different though. He was brilliant for our club; he dragged it up off its arse and left us standing proudly. A great man and a great manager. 

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

As a youngster I sent a letter to Big Jack asking him if he'd get me Terry Curran's autograph - I was too young to make my own way to matches from where I lived.

He wrote back, a nice note, and with it was a programme, with the centre pages signed by all the players. Somewhere along the way I lost it.

But that says so much about the man...RIP Big Jack  

Of course there are cracks, that's how the light gets in.

My Dad, took me for my dinner at the ground on the day that TC signed, I can picture him now tucking into Spag Bol in the bar.

Good read that, cheers Bricat.

Big Jack’s funeral is next Tuesday and the funeral procession is passing through his home town, Ashington, work permitting, I’ll go along and give him a salute from The Wednesday.

One story also never neither confirmed nor denied surrounded Curran's departure to THEM.

He strode into Charlton's office with the offer he'd received from the pigs in his pocket.

Throwing some paperwork down on the table Curran said to JC 'what do you think of that then?'
JC replied that he wouldn't pay it if he'd received it. Curran had chucked down a copy of his electric bill.




Then there was the time a fan sued Wednesday under the trades description act as the football that game was awful. JC sent him a cheque of his own to cover the ticket price.


We've had some fun at Hillsborough 😃

Great stuff Bri

On a real personal level the Charlton era coincided with a lot of shit going on family wise, parents divorce, step parents, step brothers and sisters, lots of change.

The ups of Sheffield Wednesday in that period gave me that escape  

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

Good man. 👍 

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

I remember the last one being in the paper at the time. We do seem to get some arsehole fans. One clever sod and the club's name got laughed through the national papers.
Jack did right with that.

Due to being able to retain minutiae details of 70s/80s Wednesday (whilst not having a clue about stuff that happened last season), I can tell you that the game in question was the F.A. Cup 3rd round replay in 1983 - a 2-2 draw with Southend.

Big Jack sent him a personal cheque (as already mentioned), but also told him he was no longer welcome at Hillsborough. 

Tell mi mam, mi mam, I don't want no tea, no tea, I'm watching the Wednesday, tell mi mam, mi mam

I'll bet he didn't phrase it quite like that.
