Jack was a regular thorn in our side during the years when Leeds were in their pomp.

His presence on the goal-line prevented Jim Furnell reaching the ball and enabled Terry Cooper to score the winning goal in the 1968 League Cup Final.

Two days before his 37th birthday, he was so dominant in the 1972 FA Cup final that John Radford ended up being hauled off with us 1-0 down.

And he scored the winning goal in the last minute of the game which could easily have deprived us of the championship in 1971. Thankfully we got the result we needed at Spurs a week later.
Which was an even better way to do it. 8)

Hard as nails and pretty dirty when he needed to be. In 1970 cup final, he forgot about Osgood and let him score as he had another vendetta to settle elsewhere. Used to chase players around the pitch to do them! Hunter and Charlton must have been the nastiest sons of bitches to play against. McLintock and Simpson were choir boys in comparison.

RIP Jack Charlton.........revered in England as part of the 66 World Cup winning team

To be honest not a great player but hugely affective with it, dominant in the air back in the day when the game was more physical

Sure, but Leeds had 9 like Storey in their team every week. Eddie Gray and the keeper were the exceptions. Giles and Bremner were also pretty nasty as were Jones & Clarke upfront. Likewise Reaney & Cooper. And Lorimer. And Madeley.
