RIP Bobby Robson

Picture from REUTERS/Pool/Files (BRITAIN SPORT SOCCER OBITUARY)
RIP Bobby Robson, I have fab memories of watching England in 1986 and 1990 on the edge of my seat. Still have all the matches on video! A thoroughly decent human who I would love to be even 10% as respected as. My favourite saying of his is 'Don't mistake my friendliness as a weakness', showing he did have the strong edge needed to be a successful manager, he didn't suffer fools. He'll be missed.
