Jack Bobby A Story of Brothers in ConflictRemained deeply involved in the game ever since This book traces the parallel lives of the Charltons following them from their schooldays through to the present dayThe br Having joined the bores who go on about how much better football was when they were younger some years ago it was never in doubt that I would enjoy this book There is still something for readers who don’t like football though There are two brothers out of four with a talent for football The elder one isn’t as good at it as the second one but they both are successful in what they do The younger of the two joins a first division club that nurtures his talent and he uickly makes a name for himself as an exciting goalscorer – one of a team of young players with the world at their feet Until returning from an away game in Europe when a number of his team mates and friends perish when their plane crashes on takeoff Meanwhile the elder brother has joined a team that seems to be going nowhere but he doesn’t seem to care all that much He much prefers shooting and fishing but clearly with an eye on the future takes and passes a coaching course at the age of 22 Football fans will by now have recognised that Bobby is the younger brother and will remember that Jack his brother seemed to be in the shadows while in their playing days They may also recall that the tables were turned when it came to management with Bobby having a brief career which is probably best forgotten while Jack took to it much better – and at the same time re inventing himself as a man of the people self assured confident and almost fearless – almost the opposite of Bobby This book fills in some of the gaps of these events which span well over 40 years and I would say that it is an absorbing read for non football fans as well as us lucky people The author introduces and includes a number of players and managers who are inspirational cynical kind cruel greedy and generous – in fact having all the characteristics that keep any good book going As for the main two subjects and their being ‘brothers in conflict’ – there isn’t a great deal to tell us why but we do see that they are poles apart in just about everything Bobby is reliable polite and utterly professional at all times very much a man that it is hard to find fault with He was always my favourite as a footballer but Jack seems to be a much three dimensional character his own man much braver and full of self belief Added to this his forgetfulness with names lack of personal organisation and bloody mindedness and he provided a number of laugh out loud moments for me anyway Yes a book about football but much a book about relationships adversity and dealing with being a public figure for a long time
