The late, great Clive James said "She never lets the words or melody get in her way. She is us, without the fear of failure." :rip:

Margarita Pracatan. RIP. 

 

 Aww :(

 

For some inexplicable reason, she was booked to play the music tent at the Lewisham People's Day summer fair a couple of years ago. Of course I went. She was magnificent.

 

Here's the setlist. :lol:

Seemed a decent bloke, I wonder if his cunt brother will bother to show up at his funeral?

There is a perception in the North East that Bobby C is indeed a cunt. I'd like the see the Geordie charge sheet against him?  🤔

I'm actually quite saddened by Charlton's death though I understand he's had dementia for a while so sometimes it's a bit of good thing if they go. 

 

I hated him when he was our manager, I'm honest enough to say and was glad he left. 

 

Then a few years later I say him speak at my mate's cricket club dinner and he mentioned that despite playing his entire club career for Leeds, there was only one club team he would get out of his seat for when they scored and that was us. 

 

I think the contrast with his "Mister Man United" brother was what made the comment for me.

Neither Charlton played for NUFC, despite their mothers cousin, the club's greatest ever player, being sent to personally recruit them. A few years before, and a bit further south, Bobby Robson chose to join Fulham rather than the club he idolised, far more than either Charlton brother did. They were as likely to go to Roker as SJP. 

 

I think there's a pattern there in the 50s tbh :cuppa:

I met Jack Charlton once after an away game I think at Luton. Due to knowing "fingers" I used to tickets for the players lounge. Anyway Jack strolled in and started chatting to me and my mate. He was genuinely decent. 

The really bizarre thing was though he wasn't tall at all. Afterwards we looked at each other and both said  How come he was such a shortarse?. Its baffled me ever since

I've seen him a canny bit in Kingston Park Tesco the last few years. Stood with his hands behind his back staring down at fruit and veg most of the time. Radge to think he was a world cup winner. 

 

He didn't look short mind.

He let the miners in SJP for nothing when the strike was on which I'd forgotten about. Seen him out and about like Gemmill and thought it was radge as well seeing him strolling about Eldon Square not that long after the WC in Italy. He brought a NUFC team to the dome in Walker as well and everyone was just wandering amongst them and he was no bother whatsoever, it was as if it was a working men's club were playing and he was their manager. Loved his voice and him saying he'd have chinned Rijkaard if he'd spat at Jackie. :lol:

 

RIP big man.

I know, makes no sense. Its possible I had a couple on board

Maybe he was sitting down. ;) He looked massive when you saw him playing for England although he wasn’t that tall by modern standards

Greatest manager in Irish history and a sound fella by the sounds of it. RIP.

I like the story (possibly apocryphal) about when he went for the Ireland job. Supposedly he saw it as part time / semi-retirement meaning he could go fishing etc. When the FAI approached him and asked about wages he’s meant to have said something along the lines of “I’m not bothered, just give me what Eoin Hand was on”. When they told him what his predecessor earned he’s meant to have said “I want a canny bit more than that”.
