It’s been ten years since Sir Bobby Robson passed away and the remembrances for the great man are pouring in today. Sir Bobby had an amazing and lasting effect on the world of football as we all know.
However, his legacy reaches beyond the sport as he has come to represent so much more. In a time when decency and class have become all too rare, we remember Sir Bobby for having both in abundance.
