'And Up Yours As Well' - Jack Charlton On The Famous Row With Billy Bingham

'And Up Yours As Well' - Jack Charlton On The Famous Row With Billy Bingham

Windsor Park 1993 remains the most famous encounter of all between the Republic and the North.

Billy Bingham was still wounded by the triumphalist chants of 'One Team In Ireland' that greeted his side's humiliation in Dublin seven months earlier.

He sought to gee up a crowd that didn't need geeing up before the game, a fact that many in the south are unwilling to forgive.

During the game, a message along the lines of 'Up Yours' was delivered to Maurice Setters by one of the Norn Iron players (Roy Keane would probably regard that as tame).

Jack was on the warpath about this attack on the fair Maurice and sought to confront Bingham on the matter after the game. What he meant to say, according to his own account, was that 'one of your players shouted 'up yours' at Maurice during the game.'

But he didn't quite get all the words out and transmitted a rather different message.
