RIP Sir Bobby

Posted on August 1, 2009


Football has lost one of its true gentleman. The death of Sir Bobby Robson, former manager of Ipswich, Newcastle and England amongst others, has lost his long battle with cancer at the age of 76.

Bobby Robson was a massively successful manager and, let us not forget, player. But he combined this success with such a tremendous amount of good humour, kindness and gravitas that, for once, the overwhelming amount of trubutes are all richly deserved. The world of football, and the world in general, will be a poorer place for the loss of this great man.
