I just heard about this. Real shame, he was a great manager, a good player, and seemed like a nice bloke.

How he lead such a small club of Ipswich to UEFA cup victory, priceless in my opinion.

Being a fan of that small club, priceless does not go far enough to describe it.

Jose Mourinho called him imortal and hes right, he will never be forgotten by football fans around the globe.

I met him once and that really is not enough for a man of his stature.

Also, if anyone wants to donate to his cancer charity: www.sirbobbyrobsonfoundation.org.uk/
