I recall the song which started with the words "Aye,aye,aye,aye, Jackson is better than Yashin....."

Deeply saddened by his passing. A true legend if ever there was one.
Was virtually ever present during my earlier days as a Palace supporter.
Am also disgusted that there’s not even a mention of this on this site or the CPFC site. Absolutely shameful.
Had to go to the Orient site to get a decent write up. Very tasteful and unbiased. Well done Orient.

Oh this is so sad, another of my boyhood heroes gone. The word "legend" is bandied about too often these days but this guy truly was. R.I.P. Jacko.

Just so that the younger fans can understand how good he was, it would be a toss-up of who was the best 'keeper during my time following Palace. Jules, Big Nige or Jacko. All great at their time.
RIP John.

Does anyone know the way? Did we hear someone say?

Never had the good fortune of seeing him in a Palace shirt. He was an Orient player by the time I was hit by the affliction.

Plenty of people I respect have described him as the best.

RIP Jacko

Jackie was a great, great keeper. Should have gone to Mexico in ‘70 ahead of Bonetti, Stepney and West.IMO. And, if he had played against W Germany when Banks was sick who knows what might have happened!?

Remember standing behind the goal when he magnificently saved a penalty from Martin Peters soon after Peters had joined Spurs in a then record transfer deal (£200k!)

Wrote a letter of disgust when we sold him to Leyton Orient. Received a reply from the club which I still have to this day. I was hugely impressed as an 11-year-old to get a reply even tho’ it didn’t alter the fact that we’d sold by favourite player.

As well as being a great shot stopper, I remember him being fearless in coming for crosses and very quick off his line to intercept strikers . He also had a magnificently accurate over arm throw which would often pick out our players in the opposition’s half.

Should have been with us for another five seasons. Definitely should be a statue of him at The temple of football.

RIP Jacko - a Palace great!

 


55 years on the Palace rollercoaster!

Very sad news. Bill Glazier was my first Palace keeper and I was gutted when he left. But soon got over it. Does anyone remember a short period when he and (Ray?) Millington shared the position? Jacko soon made it his own. I WAS John Jackson many times in Thornton Heath Rec with, literally, jumpers for goal posts and my friend Vincent taking shots. A real hero of mine and a sad day. Condolences to his family. RIP Jacko.

i remember him saving a penalty against Man City not sure if it was Franny Lee or Colin Bell towards the end of one season which more or less meant we stayed up another season.Truly was a Selhurst great

The current owners/ management do not seem very interested in
the players who played for the club before 1990. Parish perhaps
"recognizes" Mark Bright but appears possibly disinterested in
anybody who played for the club before then. John Jackson
apparently gets a mention on the Orient site but nothing from
Palace. The death of Terry Long ignored. The Johnny Byrne
lounge apparently becomes a broom cupboard.
