If we were ever to name a Stand after someone, this is the man. 

Agreed. Would've been nice to do it while he was alive. He'd have loved that.

They aren't worth the argument buddy.

Snowflake thinking matters now.

 

This thread is about one of our heroes so will just stick to that.

 

Will probably have a very thoughtful drink or two later and toast probably our best leader in my time supporting the club.

Totally agree mate, if anyone deserves a statue at this club then big Jack is at the top of that list. I'm surprised how shocked and saddened i am by this news about someone i never met, but this has hit me harder than i expected and prooves to me the measure of the man: RIP LEGEND

Me too.

I found some watery things in the corners of my eyes. Definitely not a soft shyte though. Must be hay fever.

The Blackburn away game in 1980 our promotion season is etched into my mind, it was the turning point of the free fall, all the bad poo for that period ended that night we knew we were going up.

Thank you Big Jack, you were the f#*king man 😘

If he was here with us now, he’d definitely be a member of the fishing thread, sharing the banter.

RiP..absolute class that man. No airs and graces, told off now he was.

Changed us as a club and laid the foundations for others to build on....had the pleasure of meeting him in Dublin once just a thoroughly decent man.

Its weird because there's loads of stories about him being tight but loads about him being generous as well, especially with his time.

Totally gutted to hear of Jack's passing, it's like losing a family member, worse in some cases.

 

He dragged us by the scruff of the neck up the league and made us believe again, in the context of the situation he was the best manager we ever had imo.

 

RIP Jack. 😞
