Jack Collison

http://bit.ly/1Qca6o0Has retired from the game aged 27. After he dislocated his kneecap playing for us in 2009 he's in constant pain and has quit. Such a shame.

Such a shame.

Thought he showed more talent than Noble at one point. Hope the coaching/journalism works out.

I thought much the same. He looked ok on MotD the other day so I hope his TV work goes well as well as the coaching.

Such a shame. Very similar to Dean Ashton. 2 great players who both had the potential to do many great things for club & country until injury got in the way. Best of luck Jack in your future coaching/media roles.

Real genuine young guy, and always remained a True Hammer, feel for him like Dean Ashton, but I believe he can make it work the line he is taking, wish Jack the very best.

Gutted.

After reading the very sad article on him the other month about his troubles and trying put them behind him and re-build his career from scratch, this is devastating news.

Wish him all the best with his Soccer School's and TV work.

Great player & true gentleman. :crest:

I have no idea how much money he has made in the game but I would guess nôt a lot compared to most.
In the old days a testimonial would have been granted (see John Lyall).
I can't think of anyone more deserving.
Good luck Jack.

Good luck Jack. I agree with a testimonial in this instance. He played through the pain of losing his dad to help our club. :crest:

Sad to hear, such a great prospect butikk the injuries ruined his chances of fullfilling his potential.. Onboard with the testimonial idea. Would be well deserved, a genuine great guy.

Genuinely gutted about this. Was really hoping he was going to turn his fortunes around at Peterborough. Luckily he seems a very decent and intelligent bloke so I'm certain he will go on to do well in his future, be it coaching or tv work.

Gutted for him, really does seem a great lad.

The Peterborough website has his full statement but I haven't worked out how to post the link from my phone...doh!

Maybe someone else can, it is another classy moment, from a classy guy.

A statement from Jack Collison.

It’s hard knowing how to start this…

But as of tomorrow when I wake up, I am no longer Jack Collison - the footballer, as of tomorrow I am officially retired.

I have nothing but respect for the way Jack has conducted himself. We all know the difficult situations he faced as a West Ham player, and every single person who has met him talks about his great character.

It was good to see him on the BBC coverage of the Peterborough game this week, and I really hope that his media work (and his sports centres) go from strength to strength.

Will always remember him getting stuck into a Brighton player who was winding him up. Chopped him down like Harris! Sad to hear your bad news, Jack, but I am sure other doors will open for you. Good luck for the future andd thanks for being a Hammer. :crest:

Wouldnt have surprised me if this news had broken sooner and his decision made before Mark announced his charity for his testimonial then I could have seen Noble giving the money to jack tbh

I've met Jack.

On a corporate thing on match day as he was ushered around,

He was more in awe and nervous on meeting me as I was him.

He was better than Noble by a long distance in footballing terms.

I wish him so much luck and I am humble to meet him
