My favourite Jackie Charlton story is his first match as Ireland manager. The first national anthem was played and seemed to go on forever. When it eventually stopped, he commented to one of his (Irish) assistants: “Bloody hell, I hope ours doesn’t go on that long!” To which the assistant replied: “That was ours.”

A genuinely funny and modest man who, when compared to his brother Bobby, said: “The difference is I can’t play, but I can stop other people playing.” He often said Bobby was the greatest player he had ever seen.

Many, including Bobby, said Jackie was the greatest defender they’d ever seen.

Jackie Charlton was a great player and a true gentleman, although not on the pitch. Imagine you're a forward heading towards the Leeds goal; in front of you are Billy Bremner, Jack Charlton and Norman Hunter - what do you do?
A. Run in the opposite direction
B. Hoof the ball out of touch
C. Fall over
D. All of the above!

From the Independant:
" with local news reporting the death as an apparent suicide. "
Another member of the 27 Club? Oh, hold it, the others were musicians.
 
Here we go then... Somebody you didn’t even know you’d never heard of has died but thanks to the BBC, we now know that somebody we never knew that we’d never heard of has died.

One of MSM (?the red tops) made an overloaded portrayal that she died because of her skin colour, ludicating that black women are 5 times more likely to die during pregnancy than white women. The direct line was that the NHS was racist, biased against black people. I can't find the article now for some reason.

‘Social Media star’. There, in a nutshell, is why the world seems to have gone completely mad.
