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

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.

Some great stories over the weekend from the Ireland players re Jack's man management, including before playing England telling Mick McCarthy and Kevin Moran the English players had told the media the Irish defence was rubbish. Made up of course but McCarthy and Moran were like men possessed. Also at times telling John Aldridge, Niall Quinn and a few others when things weren't going too well that if they won they can have a good booze up afterwards. Aldridge was saying he used to tell all the English lads at Liverpool what they got up to and they couldn't believe it as they complained they were treated like kids. However he stressed that through all this they trained hard and weren't allowed a drink up to 48 hours before a game. The David Connolly story is gas but probably best not to put up here Laugh
