Comments

Thank you, Jack. You put the big in COYBIG. We bring you 10 of his best quotes…

ANY CHANCE OF A BEER?

After a 3-0 loss to Portugal, Charlton asked journalists during his post-match press conference: “Can we go now please? I’d like a beer.”

BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER

After Eamon Dunphy called on Jack Charlton to resign… “My refusal to answer questions from Dunphy was the biggest mistake I ever made. I made Eamon very, very famous.”

TALKING TACTICS

“I wasn’t very good at playing football. But I was very good at stopping other people playing football”

SUSPICIOUS MINDS

“I’m always suspicious of games where you’re the only ones that play it.”

TOP DRAW

“If in winning we only draw we would be fine.”

A QUICK GEOGRAPHY LESSON

“We probably got on better with the likes of Holland, Belgium, Norway and Sweden, some of whom are not even European.”

SPORT PSYCHOLOGY LESSON

“It was a game we should have won. We lost it because we thought we were going to win it. But then again, I thought that there was no way we were going to get a result there.”

HARD WORK

“Nothing is given to you. You’ve got to work for it.”

GETTING SHIRTY

“Man United have shops all round the world. It’s a big money spinner, plus the fact that they change their strip every five minutes.”

DEAR DIARY

“I’ve seen them on television on a Sunday morning most days of the week.”
