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.

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

I presume I went to both games v Southend

Burnley that season was my first ever away game. Then got proper man flu and missed the ruddy replay.

My over riding memory of the Jack Charlton era is therefore circumstances contriving for me not to see the pivotal games  

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

Those 5 games against Arsenal in the 3rd round were preceded by 2 games against Scunny and 2 games against Tranmere

Only Wednesday could play 9 FA Cup proper games and not make the 4th round

So Mirocevic, do we think Jack signed him, or was it the club somehow? I just can't see Jack letting £200k be spent on a player without his involvement. Ok he was technically decent but he was hardly Glenn Hoddle and I suspect even Le Tiz put more of a shift in than our Ante. So it always puzzled me how he came to join the club whilst Jack was in charge.

I recall Ante scoring in the semi v Brighton but let's be honest most of us on here could have scored that, he shouldn't have even been on the pitch that day if it wasn't for Bailey breaking his leg. The football may have been direct but I loved Jack and his team were 100%ers, something were not always sure of these days.

If only we could find a coach with the character of Jack/ BFR and the coaching nouse of Sgt Wilko we'd be laughing. I wonder if the penny has dropped with DC that the coach can make such a big difference and even make up for a squad not being that fantastic provided they are competitive.

Here's my Big Jack story.

Was about 7 and spending the day ay my Auntie and Uncles house one Sunday.

My Uncle who was into his game shooting said he needed to go and collect something and said my cousin and I could go with him.

We went across to property which sure was in Derbyshire and my Uncle Bill knocked on the door and a lady answered and led us into the kitchen. Sat there was Jack reading the paper. He reminded me of my Grandad as was really friendly to us lads.

His Wife got me and Steve drinks and Big Jack went and fetched 2 Pheasants for my Uncle.

wasn't it thought that Mirocevic was the captain of the Yugoslav national team but it turned out he played for their Olympic team

Here's my memory of big Jack. He coached the team I played for in Leeds (Leeds Ashley Rd-A feeder club for Owls). In one session he wasn't too happy with our goalie's performance at a corner. He organised another corner and he came running in from edge of penalty area and thudded into our goalie who finished up in back of net. Jack knocked him unconscious and the goalie was taken to hospital. Jack walked off the pitch and asked someone for a fag.

Now we know where DC got the idea with ST refunds. I bet JC didn't get the same amount of grief DC got though

He did and to be fair to him he had decent shot in him, when balls needed your foot putting through it, unlike the bloody beach balls they play with now.

Jack's funeral today. Just seen a report on SSN showing an estimated 10,000 people in Ashington lining the funeral procession route, and an interview with local lad Steve Harmison paying a fulsome tribute to him as well.

They've been paying tribute to him in Ireland as well. In Ballina, County Mayo where he had a holiday home for many years, they've unveiled a mural of him about to sink a pint of Guinness.

Lots of love and respect being shown to a great bloke. RIP Big Jack.Salute

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