How Sir Bobby Touched My Heart

How Sir Bobby Touched My Heart

Well after reflecting from the very, very bad news today of Sir Bobby passing away and from hearing not only football people talk about what a special man Sir Bobby was but also normal people talk of how this special man touched the hearts of people like you and me.

I've been very lucky in meeting Sir Bobby twice during my time watching City and as im typing this now I have a tear in my eye because both times I met this great man he made me feel like I was the one who was special.

I remember the first time I met this great man. All I wanted to do was ask him about him and how he was and he turned the question back and all he wanted to do and talk about was little old me. You could tell from the moment even before I spoke to him the type of man he was because he was such a shy man who was more concerned about other people than people talk about him.

The second time I saw him I was lucky enough to see him whilst I was outside the main entrance outside Maine Road where the players come in when he walked in when he was a guest and the place stood still with the pure stature of this shy man who still had time to stop and speak to everyone who wanted to speak to him.

I've never heard anyone speak badly about Sir Bobby and the tributes today have and still have me leaving a lump in my throat and a tear in my eyes because dont mistake it this was and still is a football legend.

At this time in football with all the rivalry I have to take my hat off to all the tributes from every person who has paid tribute to this special man including Sir Alex (and that will be the last time I call him by that name) because you can tell this has shocked everyone even though with the illness has been expected but now its happened is still a huge shock.

I would love to see now a nice way to remember this great man and a statue of the great man at wembley where everyone can see how important not only was he to football but to everyone who not only met him and was lucky enough to have met him like me but for everyone to look up to and see what an inspiration he was and aloways will be.

Im sorry for this long article, if it's published, but this is a time for every football fan to stand arm in arm and whatever team you support and remember such a great human being.

Thank you for reading this.
