    Jackie Charlton dead at 85

    BBC reports.

    As a young schoolboy in the 60's he was always part of my life. Saw him in 65 at my first international and of course as part of the 66 squad as the school got tickets. Even though a Revie boy at Leeds ( our nemesis at Chelsea ) you could not help but be enthralled by him and his time as the Irish manager was magical for his entertaining style on and off the field.

    Even today he would be worthy of a state funeral there.

    RIP big lad.

    RIP

    He got a standing ovation from both the Irish and English fans at a 2015 friendly between the two nations
