Sir Bobby Robson dies

Very sad news that former England Manager, Sir Bobby Robson has died. The Times reports that it is believed that Sir Bobby passed away in his sleep. He has been battling cancer for some time. This was his fifth diagnosis.

As well as taking England to the World Cup semi-final in 1990 Robson also managed Barcelona, PSV Eindhoven, PC Porto and Newcastle United. He was voted European manager of the year in 1997.

He was a giant in the world of football and will be greatly missed.
Robson will be recognised by history as on the whole a successful England manager, but one of the unluckiest ones. He was robbed of key players by injury in at least one international tournament. He was also driven out of the job by a shameful red-top campaign. None of his successors has been half the man, though the FA does seem to have at last made a sensible choice with the current incumbent.
I met Bobby Robson a couple of times during his years at Ipswich Town. It was his success there that got him the England job. A statue of him is just outside the ground at Ipswich and I am sure many tributes will be placed there. He was as you say a great fotballing man and will be missed.
Very sad news, he is a legend, we will never forget you Bobby.

A true legend,he will be missed, a Geordie and a Gentleman
No words can describe the integrity of the man, not to mention all the talent within the football world he helped to uncover and nurture!

A legend amongst legends, there'll never be another...Sir Bobby Robson, you shall be missed!
How sad he was the successful manager of former.
