Truly one of the Greats, Sir Bobby Charlton died today, aged 86.

RIP to a childhood hero.

Sad day,  I was at Stamford Bridge August 1971, Utd  won 3-2 (even with Best sent off in the first half),  Kidd , Morgan, and a Sir Bobby Special , for utd,   Bladwin, Osgood for the blues. Not a Utd fan, but proud to say I have seen Sir Bobby play. One of the best 10 bobs I have ever spent.

True legend for sure.   Only one of the 66’ers left now. 
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it’s all about ?

One of England’s greatest.  Like all of the country’s attackers of his era, today would have been more difficult for him, because some managers and pundits would nowadays expect someone to end his forward movement by “taking one for the team”, sadly….

That's never really been any different.

I had the privilege of seeing Bobby at White Hart Lane in the late sixties. Truly a class act. I'm sure my team (Spurs) lost the match but I didn't mind as it was such a free flowing game end-to-end stuff ! My gripe with modern footballers and commentators is when they explain a bad miss or pass is that "it's on his wrong foot". NO such problems with Sir Bobby --  some cracking goals with a REAL football and with either foot ! R.I.P.
