Very sad to hear the news RIP Big Jack. For me the best manager we have had and gave me my greatest memories of watching Wednesday.

Sadly too young to remember his managerial reign, but my Dad always told me what a fantastic manager and character he was. 

 

RIP

Never forget the snowballs against Arsenal. Pat Jennings was having ‘em lobbed at him from the kop and Big Jack came out with his arms out asking it to stop...so everyone started chucking ‘em at him! RIP big man.

Absolutely heartbreaking news this morning.

 

Big Jack was without a shadow of a doubt the greatest manager we ever had. He gave us pride in our football club again, his achievement was immeasurable. A World Cup winner and a true, humble gentleman.

 

We mourn a genuinely great Wednesday legend.

 

Thank you for everything you did for our club Jack.

 

RIP

RIP Jack.

 

Gave me so many memories - a truly larger than life character in a different era. I wonder what he would have made of the game today. 

 

He did wonders for the club and will always be a legend and hero to me.

R.I.P the man in 1966 known by Spanish speakers as El Giraffo.

Thanks for the great memories.

Very sad news. Like many on here he was manager when I went to my first match, so it’s all your fault Big Jack!

 

A truly great manager and a true club legend. We were so blessed to have a gentleman of his calibre at our club. Will be sorely missed.

Much of what he did was before my time. First memories of him were managing the Rep of Ireland team, obviously aware of his past achievements.

 

R.I.P. Big Jack

Awful news to wake up to. 
 

His era was just before my time but he built the foundations for the teams that I grew up watching. A huge character with a massive heart... what we would do for someone like him at the club right now.  
 

Thoughts to his family and friends.
