4 years ago today we lost him, such a shame he didn't get to see us now
I’m sure he’s watching down over us @Dragonwolf and giving a big thumbs up
WHAT ????? And the place overrun with Johnny Foreigner !!!
I’m sure he’d be as pleased as any of us with how the club is now. We’re doing him proud.
To be fair, given what we know about his politics, I really don't think he would have liked us being sold to a foreign company. I also think there are quite a few things he wouldn't have liked such as the pre-match extravaganzas, Morgan's alterations to his stadium, the increased commercialisation of the Prem and our connection with Mendes for some.
SJH was very much into Britain and buy British.
However, I do think he'd have liked Nuno and I do think he'd have liked a number of our new players.
I would like you to appreciate that my thoughts about what I think SJH would like don't tally with my own feelings about the current administration.
Beat me to it.
I'm inclined to agree. While l loved Sir Jack l did note that his admiration of things British didn't extend to the tax system...
Let’s just remember him respectfully without the need to critic his business morals.
Agreed. No critique, just a throwaway observation.
Nicely put Boss. I second that emotion.
Sir Jack’s love for Wolves was such that I think he would have come round to appreciating owners who treated the club right. He would have loved to see us mixing it with the big boys.
A revival of the Wolves domination in the 50s, I'm sure that is what he really wanted. We aren't quite there yet but...
Thanks for the reminder Dragonwolf. Always good to remember those who have helped us to be the club that we are, be their contribution great or small.
Fondly remembered. Continue to RIP Sir Jack. X
I liked Sir Jack around, I liked Rachael Heyhoe Flint around, and I certainly like Planty around, but more than happy to find ourselves where we are right now, it's certainly a great time to be a Wolves fan.
Later, I will raise a glass to Sir Jack in memory of a good man who did good things for our football club.
Those 4 years have flown and it will shortly be 3 years since Rachael left us too.
RIP to them both .
Two thumbs up at that
Rachael was a lovely lady. I was lucky enough to spend a couple of hours in her company chatting Wolves and Cricket. She lived not far from me in Tettenhall. Still remember watching her play for England against Trinidad and Tobago in the World Cup at Wolverhampton C.C. in Tettenhall around 73/74 I think? R.I.P. to Rachael and Jack.
I don't think anyone was, Shifnal.
Hopefully we really kick on over the next 2 seasons & keep this momentum going building the club bit by bit.
End of the day it’s what us fans think that counts & they were both massive fans.
100% one of our own! Sad he cannot be here to experience what's happening with Wolves now. Will always remember the trademark thumbs up he gave us, from his chauffeur driven car, RHF was in the car too, on the outskirts of Leeds when we played them in the QF of the FA Cup. Safe to say that we miss them both.
Crikey four years? That went quickly
Think Sir Jack would put Wolves in front of any personal political or nationalistic stance. I know I would. Wolves means the world to us fans.
I don't think he would, mate, given the things which he's been quoted as saying. In fact, I'm absolutely positive about it. However, those quotes are for the other forum...I've already had one post deleted today for wandering into politics.
I had a lot of time for Sir Jack but l think many of his attitudes and opinions were from a bygone era.
I've had a lot of conversations with Wolves pals about this and we're all of the same opinion.
Maybe. Reckon, though, he would have been well chuffed at seeing us beat Chelsea and Spurs!
Yeah, indeed, and glad that we don't go to Grimsby (to quote him).
Living abroad in a society and social group likely little changed from colonial times wouldn't have helped.
Did we not play Blackpool after his death - 4 years on we're playing Man City! I think he'd be pretty chuffed!
Not really the time or place to debate the feelings of someone who’s sadly passed that lived and came from different times.
Loved Wolves and invested a hell of a lot (not just money) someone we should all be eternally grateful too.
4 years on, gone but never ever forgotten.
Hopefully get a good Jack Hayward’s barmy army going tomorrow night.
He did - 7 years ago.
