    What a great shame, he always seemed a great bloke and as someones already said he was the granddad that everyone wanted.

    Thanks for some great memories Sir Bobby.

    A sad day but glad he dosen't have to suffer anymore.

    RIP

    rip bobby you help make football waht it was today

    Very sad to hear of this, you could tell he was starting to become a bit dillusional at Newcastle but he was still doing a great job, even throughout his final days...he was probably the last good manager there and was always a nice guy about everything.

    RIP and good luck to his friends and family.

    An absolute legend and a true gentleman. Will be sadly missed, R.I.P Bobby.

    The image of him dancing on the touchline when we scored against Germany in the '90 World Cup is one of my favourite memories.

    RIP Sir Bobby, they just don't make them like him anymore. A true legend.....

    :thumbsup: great bloke a real gent..much respected thoughout sport in general r.i.p

    RIP bobby

    Very sad. :-(

    At least he's no longer suffering.

    Good bye to a grand bloke who was good at his job and said it like it is, but was well spoken and well mannered.
    The same newspapers who attacked him nastily when he was England manager will, I hope, pause and reflect when they are full of eulogies today.
    But for the 'Hand of God' - who knows, he may have been one of the best England managers ever.

    RIP. But seriously couldn't help giggle at that comment.

    RIP, very sad news. Glad he got to see his testimonial match the other day, and all the England/Toon fans had a chance to say 'thankyou and goodbye'.

    very sad, rip bobby

    Always received a standing ovation at our place... he'll be missed.
