Bobby Robson died today but he left with all sports fans that knew is work a huge example: it is possible to be both decent and competent in soccer.
I’m a bit sad by knowing that probably my club (Sporting Club of Portugal) was one of the few that didn’t treat Bobby Robson as he deserved. We now know what a huge mistake we made and are committed not to repeat again.
He was just a guy that loved to play and to coach. But he is also one that will be missed by many, and that is not for all. He was indeed a special one.

My last and humble compliment.
See alos in portuguese: “A morte de um cavalheiro. Robert William Robson, 1933-2009.”
