A Football Gentleman

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Northern stars are dimmed today,
for a great man has passed away.
He died with pride and dignity,
though in pain for all to see.
He gave more to football than he took,
and was an ever open book.
He wore his heart on his sleeve,
football his life to live and breath.
With pride he led the England team,
get near their World Cup dream.
Managed in Spain and Portugal,
as a gentleman he stood tall.
His last post fulfilled the man’s dream,
to take charge of his boyhood team.
Alas the enemy deep inside,
became too hard for him to hide.
Now grown men bow heads, shed a tear,
alas he is no longer here.
But his legend will still live on.
when lesser men have come and gone.



BOBBY ROBSON. 1933-2009. DIED.31.07.2009.
Rest in peace Sir Bobbie. you enriched football and the world.
