    I hope Elland Road spontaneously combusts every day!
     
  2. There'd be nothing left to combust after 4 or 5 consecutive days, surely......

    Is this the same "Irishman Jack Charlton" who won a World Cup winners medal with England in 1966?
     
  4. Can't be, surely...

    The same Jack Charlton, who, when asked if he had mixed feelings following Ireland's victory over England at the Euros in 1988, said he had no mixed feelings at all.

    I mentioned our Franny, all 5 foot 7 of him sending Hunter (6 foot something) backwards and down in an earlier post. If it was a boxing match the ref would have stopped it. More hard players and deliberate foulers in those days. Even commentators didn't criticise 'em. 'Professional foul' they used to say as though it was perfectly acceptable.

    Highly unpleasant group of players with a very small number of exceptions. You're right, Giles was the worst, but he could play a bit. I remember Jack Charlton going on a football tv prog where he and other random players took questions from fans in the studio and fans phoning in - the forerunner of the 'phone ins'. He said he had a black book of players he would take revenge on and 'do' at some point. Would get banned these days.
