Sir Bobby Robson

Sir Bobby Robson has died.

Former England manager Sir Bobby Robson has died at the age of 76, following a long battle with cancer.

Robson will be best remembered on the international stage for leading England to the 1990 World Cup semi-final.

At club level, he cut his managerial teeth at Fulham before establishing his credentials at Ipswich where he won the FA Cup and Uefa Cup in a 13-year stay.
Football has lost a legend today.

Sad news. I also remembered him best for his England managerial spell in Italia 90.

RIP

Re: Sir Bobby Robson

A sad loss to the game. A legend, and a true gent.

After getting England so close to winning the World Cup in 86 & 90, losing very close games to the eventual champions, you wonder how well he could have done with the exceptional England squad in the mid-late 90's.

Rest in peace Sir Bobby.
