No doubt but we are well able to give England stick for harping back to 66, how is this any different?

God forbid the rugby team did something similar.

I think Buckley got a ticket to the game and we were on scholarship at the time around 94 .
I shit you not I watched the game against Italy in 94 because I could not afford the prices in the Blarney Stone pub with my sister that was visiting.
Not a few bob to get through the next week and I seaward to almighty God a couple sat down next to us at the bar. I swear to god Roundy this is true. It was Pail Hill and the Kennedy wife.
Honest to god that’s true and it was the same day the OJ Simipson chase.
If changed not only that day in New Jersey maybe a few things but Jack Charlton made a small nation dream big back then.
By accounts Jack has Dementia but no man brought belief and a sense of pride that no politician could ever try.
These were great players at the time told by a manager to
Play a certain way.
Jack was lefty as he said he always got fed on the left side by his mother.
Bobby was the spoilt one but Jack was the real deal.
He brought a nation to its breath but much more he brought a happiness to every household in Ireland at the time.
I never forget them days
How was Bobby spoilt ?
They were reared the same and worked hard

If the English were doing something similar we would be slating them.


Lazy programming from RTE, just a cheap trawl through the archives with whoever they could rope in..
Happy Days in the terraces in the Nekarstadian. Alas the programmes were all in German
Hilarious to see one guy, 3 sheets to the wind with the booze, come in and chant "Michael Fagan, Michael Fagan.." nearly an hour before kick-off

Soundy you will know more than me on this and I was actually at the game Ireland B v English B around 89 maybe 90 I think.
I can remember Quinn and I think David Kelly. Mike Milligan and I was young. There was a guy Kelly from Portsmouth and again I think it’s Mark Kelly.
Would Alan McLoughlin played that game? Dennis Irwin was surely with Oldham at the time?
Gary Waddock maybe QPR at the time?
I still remember trying not to slip down the grass ridge at the time.
Donkey Adams was playing Palmer and Webb I think.
I just remember the awe of watching players close up that usually we would see on MO TD.
Whatever anyone’s thinking was at the time or now we had better players all around at these times and Jack also was not afraid to give LOI players a look in .
I honestly didn’t think we would end up like we are now.
I detest the way Mick plays with playing Whelan from the great Fleetwood Town at 35 years of age but he will make 1.23 million as a pay off whether we qualified or not.
Jack had balls to drop people or give them a chance.
Mick is here for a paycheck only.
It’s going to be the same with 5 in midfield his favorite Didsy upfront.
Charlton changed a mentality and that poured over to the next generation as 2002 .
McCarthy is a bluffing idiot and became very wealthy for his so called love of Ireland.
If he loves Ireland and the football in this country soo much then make an action of leadership and don’t take the 1.3 million payoff and use that money for grassroots coaches whose jobs are in doubt.
This was not only Delaney fault crisis. You had Liam Brady both Keanos willingly to shut up and get paid up.
Charlton was on a fraction of what these so called Irish legends are and were getting.
Charlton bought a house for his parents after 66 with his winning money.
Bobby Charlton never went to see his dad on his deathbed whilst Jack working in the mines before he signed with Leeds .
Ball hopping trying to get a rise from me best read a bit about Jack and Bobby..
Jack looked after his parents and still lives in the Area of what he came from but loved and Bobby was definitely a bad son and actually aloof and embarrassed about his mother working in the tea rooms because she idolized Bobby and Jack always called his mother lefty for a reason.
Jack was just real and there’s not a hope in hell Bobby would have such an impact on a nation that Jack did .
Bobby has a knighthood fair play to him but Jack has a song about his words that will live for generations.
I honestly think we as a country should embrace our love for Jackie .
He brought a chance that I can’t explain but he definitely brought it.
English fans calling him Judas yet they didn’t want him at all.
Bobby Robson Graham Taylor were English management at the Charlton years.
None of them could make the impact Jack Charlton had on this Country.
