Sir Bobby Robson died today aged 76.

As Bobby Robson he turned out for Fulham at the age of 17 and earned 20 caps representing the England team.

Football was his life and a firm supporter of Newcastle United for whom he was the manager for a brief period.

As a manager he took Ipswich Town to the top with F.A. Cup and UEFA Cup victories.

The most successful English manager since Sir Alf Ramsay, he took England to the semi-final of the 1990 World Cup.

European football had the benefit of his managerial skills and, through, him a young Brazillian player, Ronaldo, showed his value with Barcelona.

Just five days ago he was in Newcastle for a charity match for his Cancer charity.

Sir Bobby Robson is a footballing legend who will be sadly missed.
