Newcastle United fan here (take the mick if you like)

So sad to hear this news today :( RIP a true legend of football.

I think SJP will be covered with flowers, as well as Ipswich and West Brom.

    I always remember him for describing Ronaldo (the brazilian one), on live TV, as looking like he could eat an apple through a tennis racket. Brilliant comment.

    RIP Bobby

    Sir Bobby Robson - A true gent, and a reminder to us all of how one should live their life.

    Sorely missed and an inspiration to us all.

    Very sad day.

    What a shame. Spoke his mind and remained true to the sport.

    Top man.

    Nice idea Gman, I shall indeed do that.

    Sad to see him looking frail and ill last weekend, brought a tear to my eye, who'd have thought it would be his last goodbye.
    Pictures are better than words because some words are big and hard to understand.

    Think I'll stop at my favourite place on the trail again (RIP Gatz) and raise my TDF bottle to him.

    The word legend gets used far too much these days but that man exemplifies everything you need to be a legend.
    A proper gentleman, successful, courageous and inspiational, truely exceptional.
    He really will be sadly missed by many, many people.
    Sink the eight ball. Buy the lady a drink. And nobody knows my name.
