There was a tv programme in the recent past I recall which had a camera crew follow this gent around. It gave some insight and character of a man whom most of us only regard in his football manager's role. What a lovely, gentle, guy. I hope the Beeb (?) repeat this programme in the circumstances. RIP
Sad, but expected news. As a Season Ticket Holder at Newcastle, he's given me and thousands of others some fantastic memories, that others can only dream of - Newcastle in the San Siro, and the whole day in Milan being one in particular.
I never met him, but friends who have said he was a gentleman, and very candid after dinner speaker in the North East.
It's just a shame we the fans (and me included) didn't realise what we had at the time, if we had been more patient as fans and backed him in those last weeks of his tenure at Newcastle we may not be where we are now...
As I said above, thanks for the memories Sir Bobby - go and rest alongside Wor Jackie in peace.
RIP Sir Bobby, a legend of the game, some of my earliest football memories were of Italia 90, by doing well with England at the World Cup you contributed to the re-invention of the game in Britain in the 90s.
