    In the 1994 squad I reckon he had only 4 in Aldridge, Kelly, Coyne and Cascarino.

    Of course, we were playing 4-5-1 at that stage
    And had only 4 decent strikers ! !

    Just watched the “Finding Jack Charlton” documentary. It’s quiet beautifully made, some incredible nostalgia and the sheer joy and happiness of 88, 90 and 94, mixed with a really sensitive portrayal of a man and his family dealing with the fairly advanced stages of dementia.

    There’s a heartbreaking moment where they’re showing Jack old videos on a laptop and he doesn’t really remember or recognise much but Paul McGrath appears and Jack turns to the camera and says “Paul McGrath” with a cheeky smile.

    It’s the type of documentary that if you don’t shed a tear of either sentimental happiness or sadness at some point then you might want to check if your heart is still there.

    It’s available to rent on Sky and Apple TV. I’d highly recommend it.

  17. Thanks From:

    I had read a review in the Guardian about it. Will be getting a watch over Christmas.

    I watched the 'Finding Jack Charlton' doc last night. It's a lovely piece of film, capturing the real euphoria and joy of the 80s/90s and the awful, awful effects that dementia had on Jack himself and those who loved him most. He was absolutely my hero as a kid, such a titanic figure and it was tough to see how his huge personality was eroded by that terrible, terrible disease.
    The ball is round and has many surprises.
