When Wacko came to St James’s Park
Arguably the first (and probably the last) honorary director of a football club to take up his post with a speech on AIDS has passed away at the age of 50. The jump in his speech from children with HIV/AIDS to the players and supporters of this football club and onto war is a little difficult to follow.
Jacko was also the first football director to get his club’s supporters to hold hands and tell each other they love one another. So, for that we applaud him (and snigger a little bit).
