RIP Jack a legend in both England and Ireland, and a worldwide footballing legend. When the great teams and games are talked about Jack invariably gets a mention.

He had a mental toughness that few possess today. A man's man, he pulled no punches, he didn't send Paul McGrath home from the world cup, he did his job, he managed him.

A bit of a character was Jack.

Looked after his own and as mentioned above was a forthright speaker.

He spoke a lot of sense too.

A life well lived

Sad news.

I did not know that the feud with his brother went so far back. How very sad that they could not forgive each other.

Many people throughout Britain and Ireland will mourn the passing of a character....

i remember as a teenager when leeds used to travel to st james park back in the late 60s - early 70s when they were the team to beat & relished the hope of beating them ... hunter; charlton; bremner; madeley always in the team ... all gone now ... feel old just thinking about the great games of that era & how time has flashed by Sad

I rarely feel upset over someone dying that I'd never met.

But I do today,
I can picture his big grin.

Without doubt the most liked English man in Ireland.

RIP big fellow.

Thanks for that. Only 5 of that starting eleven left now but that's to be expected as they all reach 80 +. RIP Big Jack. Thought I'd check the subs as well for that day but no subs were permitted then. I was fortunate to see Leeds a lot, late 60s and 70s. Sad day both in England and Ireland. Not many proud Englishmen so loved with so much affection across Ireland. Great example of sport transcending other things.
