    Glad to see his stint at the Owls not forgotten in the montage
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    It took an owl to spot that one.
    I just had a look at that away game on that mud patch v Bulgaria 1987 and we really should have won it, at least a draw.
    Scotland winning there was just desserts for us. We were a better team all round than that lot.

    The Sky Sports News report of Jack's funeral referred to the mural at Baleena, Co Mayo.

    I was thinking about the Italia 90 squad earlier and totted up the players before googling.
    Such a strange squad really.
    Only 6 midfielders (only two of whom could be classed as wingers) and 7 strikers!!!
    7 strikers!!!

    What the hell was that all about?
    Surely Gary Waddock could’ve taken the place of one of the strikers

    Waddock was the Kevin Foley of that squad. Charlton says he regretted not bringing Waddock as Frank Stapleton was a miserable so and so over in Italy.

    It's mental to have 7 strikers in a squad though.
    Watched a YouTube documentary on Charlton years with Colm Meaney and Stapleton was saying how the periphery players were not treated with much respect.
    He didn't come out good in Cascarino's autobiography either. Seems like a bit of a strange fish.

    I've also heard he's the only one who didn't take too kindly to the Apres match caricature of him
    Folding my way into the big money!!!

    Comes across a bit strange for sure, a dry wit, or maybe just dry! He was on that RTÉ programme 'Keys to My Life' recently and host Brendan Courtney mentioned about Après Match. He just replied with something along the lines of "I've never watched it", so yeah, I don't think he was too impressed. The programme itself was quite good though.

    Jack Charlton is far from being the only one who doesn't like being caricatured and wouldn't watch the program. It makes no difference if the rest of the world are on the floor doing belly laughs.
    Afair, Giles thought his caricature was total rubbish, lacked moral courage, wouldn't watch it, but enjoyed watching the others being lampooned. When asked, Souness' face looked like he was having teeth pulled out with a pliars. And I can't imagine Stapleton being too pleased being caricatured as a monotone Frank the Plank. And didn't Dunphy have a major hissy fit after watching himself being lampooned by Dermot Morgan, he refused to turn up in the the RTE studio the next day for the World Cup final.
    Just guessing, but i'd say it's normal enough not being able to watch yourself being caricatured as a moron on national tv.

    The Frank is not alone in taking unkindly to his AM caricature.

    True, but not taking oneself so seriously is generally a better look. If anything, his miserable reaction only serves to feed the caricature, though I can see why he wouldn't be happy with the portrayal.

    Taking oneself so seriously has nothing to do with it, anybody who says they enjoy /warmly tolerate being caricatured as a moron, a plank or a hysterical clown is in all probability spoofing you.

    Charlton made an error by selecting Stapleton for Italy 90, it appears he managed the Waddock situation very poorly and then portioned blame on Stapleton for his mistake.

    It seems strange that Charlton was happy to axe Brady but not Stapleton.
    Maybe because he was our record goal scorer he felt he couldn’t drop him

    It was a lack of depth that led to Stapleton being selected more than anything else, wasn't it?

    A bit like Wales now, we had some star players big clubs and a larger number of players playing for lesser sides.

    We have, probably more to pick from at a higher level now, just without the star names.

    Charlton had 6 strikers in the 88 squad.

    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
