Hi i,m a Swansea city fc supporter, John Charles home town club. Even though he never played for the Swans he is still loved here as much as he is at Leeds and Juventus, and we find it hard to believe that the great man has not received a KNIGHTHOOD.
So please go to the link below and sign our petition to get John knighted.

Hi,
As many people know im a big John Charles fan, To me he is one of the all time greats, all the awards and plaudits placed upon him will never truly recognise this great mans achievements.
However the idea of a knighthood i find laughable, he recently was recognised with the CBE which i see very fitting.What has he ever done to deserve a knighthood? As far as im concerned no sportsman or celebrity should ever be knighted.
This continual bandying about of knighthoods just dishonours those that truly deserve the honour and goes towards making our fine land an international laughing stock.

inheriting a title is a completely seperate issue, which at least has some justification
