Just read that Bobby has died aged 76. He was a true gent of the game and will be missed by all football fans.

R.I.P Bobby.

Just seen it. Fairly sad but at least at 76 he's lived a full life.

That's a real shame, proper old fashioned gentleman. I liked the fact that he travelled all over Europe to experience management in different countries.

Always had a lot of time for Bobby Robson, one of the few people in football pretty much everyone seemed to like. A sad day.

Thats a shame he always seemed like a top bloke and absolutely loved his football. He will be missed!

Best England Manager we ever had in my lifetime, and nothing short of a fantasic bloke and a proper footballing bloke all round and this news has made me so sad i may just shed a tear..Gutted.:(:(.

First thing I read before I put the cricket on. Genuinely saddened.
Childhood hero. Managed Barca. Got a lot out of England when he was manager, good and bad. Can't be faulted too much, when haven't we had a manager that was 100% successful.

Yep echo the above, was very sad to hear the news earlier today. Was genuinely shocked at how ill he looked when last saw a picture of him firstly a few months then weeks back.

It's a cliche, I know... but he was the last of his kind and we will never see his like again. He was a reminder of a time when footballers were more honourable and winning (not money) meant everything.

very sad :(
i have huge respect for him,

a true football legend,

Yes it's a big loss, true gent.

Did a fantastic job at Ipswich.

Will certainly be missed.

Sad news. A really nice guy and great ambassador for the game. A true fighter, fighting cancer fives times ! It's real shame, he didn't win that World Cup he deserved and had to see Newcastle at a low...

Couldn't believe it when I read it. Proper gutted. Just made me think of that 1990 summer.

England, World in Motion, THAT David Platt volley, Gazza's tears, Lineker's penalties against Cameroon...

Best England manager IMO.

Indeed, FamiDude.

Sir Bobby Robson's passion and enthusiasm for the game was truly incredible. He was well liked by everyone and no one had a bad word to say about him. His passing is a massive loss.

Very sad. An absolute legend.

01-08-2009, 08:08 PM
I'm still upset, I feel like I have lost something, I was emotionally attached to Robson for many years and always listened avidly to anything he ever had to say.

01-08-2009, 08:23 PM
He was well liked by everyone and no one had a bad word to say about him.

So rare you can say that about anyone in football nowadays which goes to prove what a Gent he was and who knows, without Robson being the man he was, the "Special One" (JM) might have not been so special after all.

01-08-2009, 08:34 PM
Agreed, David.

BBC1 are showing a tribute to the legend that is Sir Bobby Robson tonight at 10:40. Essential viewing for every football fan.

On now, very moving. Showed a clip from February, didn't look too good. Bless his soul.
