Sad a proper mans man not like the shampoo advertising, take a knee because I,m told to, over manicured, over payed bunch of Fanny’s that have replaced him, 

My enduring memory of Jacky Charlton is of a debate he took part in, on TV. It was about Field Sports. There was Jack, and another guy, on the one side. Sat in their chairs facing - across a low table

They did a mural of him on the side of a building in Ballina last week overlooking the The Ridge Pool which is a well know prime salmon spot and one he would have fished many times, they unveiled it t

I remember seeing him in Asda at the Metro Centre some years back; he couldn't get his shopping done because of people wanting to talk to him and shake his hand !

Ive got the full set of "Jacks Game" DVD's, he was a keen field sportsman and fisherman

His younger brother, Tommy, used to have racing whippets back in the 60's .

Cheers.

RIP. I don't think that the people in control of what the public see and think these days  would allow TV programmes to be made showing a popular and working class celebrity enjoying field sports.

I loved when being interviewed on Parkinson and asked his greatest sporting achievement and replied "1st left and right on pheasant".

It must have been hard being the brother of one of this country’s greatest sporting icons , but what a man . 
 

there’s a little fishery near me That he used to come to.  I’m not into fishing at all but a few of my pals are . Including a lad who was born with a few disabilities. Jack charlton paid for them all to have a week on the bank there When he seen them signing in . this was about 94ish 
Always liked the man Before and after that !

He was my hero on the field and off it. As a youngster I wore the white number 5 shirt having been introduced to football when we moved to Leeds.That was my position and he was the role model.  I saw him score on his 600th appearance and went to one of his seminars after he retired and took up coaching. What you saw was what you got. A nice bloke and a much under appreciated footballer. He once said that he wasn't the best footballer, but he stopped a lot of good footballers playing well.

RIP Wor Jackie

He sponsored a fishing competition for disabled kids at Keilder. We used to fish there the day after, as you knew it would have been well stocked for the competition !

Cheers.
