Due to injury at an early age, his once promising career was cut short. Credit to him he took up coaching and ran his own soccer schools for kids. Well done to the club for giving him this chance

Chuffed to bits for him. The open letter he wrote upon leaving West Ham in 2014 was a true mark of his character.

Good luck Jack. :thup:

Not sure if it's the Club doing what's best or whether Jack has a genuine talent for coaching kids - he was at Peterborough United then there were rumours that Arsenal were going to offer him a job but he preferred coming back here , so I read anyway .
Whatever the reason it's brilliant we've given him a chance at West Ham .

If that's true it sounds promising. I was a bit dubious given that his only experience is, I think, a little bit of time coaching the Peterborough kids. But equally, I'd rather we saw our ex players come in as coaches. Get Rio working with the U18s as well or something.

Good luck to the guy. I'll always remember fondly that red card against Brighton when one of their players showboated in front of him by pulling up his socks! Get in, Jack!

Think the red card was at Reading.

Jimmy Kaba or something like that.

The sort of person I'd want my kid around if they were in an academy.

That's a big factor.

Why do a lot of your posts look like they have been cut and pasted from some football magazine?
