Has passed away at the age of 85,he had been fighting LYMPHOMA this
past year and also dementia.
He was of course a WORLD CUP WINNER and played two decades at
LEEDS UNITED,a outstanding centre half for club and country.
He also had success as the REPUBLIC OF IRELAND manager taking
them to EURO 88,ITALIA 90 AND USA 94.
He made 773 appearances for LEEDS and won 35 ENGLAND caps.
Sadly for LEEDS he joins TREVOR CHERRY and NORMAN HUNTER
who both recently passed away, all members of the greatest LEEDS
team managed by DON REVIE.

As you say a great Leeds team and a great atmosphere in the ground, I used to go to Elland Road when I lived in Leeds, never a dull moment when Jack was around, always a party.

A real working class hero. Hated Thatcher. Backed the miners. Wore "Coal Not Dole" badges during matches and post-match interviews.

Jack Charlton was also one of the football celebrities who were founder members of the Anti Nazi League. Found this tribute to his contribution

YES, jack did support the miner's,he was a friend of SCARGILL during the 1984-85 strike.
Yet ten years later he wrote this:
"If you were to talk to some of them now,they would tell you that the closing
of the mines was the best thing that ever happened to them.
They have found a new lifestyle,and, more importantly,new hope."
He was always one to look forward-that was JACK.

A rare misjudgement from the big man. Skilled, secure, well paid jobs in those towns have now translated into insecure work and poor pay through deindustrialisation and globalisation.

Most ex mining towns are grim these days. They never recovered. The idea that they found hope is farcical.

Totally farcical and the name of Thatcher let alone thoughts makes grown men cry.
Her name and those days will never be forgotten

Great steady and fearless for Leeds and as a manager for Ireland he surpassed all expectations of that proud nation but he did like to pull live animals from their natural habitat dangled on a hook.
