One Piece Of Good News



The 73-year-old will not need any more treatment, but his stay in hospital is because there is a slight swelling on his brain and it has caused temporary movement loss on his left side.

The statement from Sir Bobby's agent: 'Sir Bobby Robson continues to make good progress after major surgery which involved complete re-section of a tumour from the motor cortex part of his brain.

'Thankfully he does not require any follow-up chemotherapy or radiation treatment.

'Sir Bobby is in good spirits and talking about his recovery. He is out of bed, enjoying reading the papers, watching television and listening to the radio to keep up to date with the latest football news.

'However, he has a slight swelling on his brain which is causing a temporary loss of movement in part of his left leg and left arm. This is being treated with physiotherapy. He will therefore remain in hospital for the time being.'

Robson is currently a consultant for the Republic of Ireland side.

Wish him a speedy recovery. A man of integrity and honesty. Two qualities that are sadly lacking in most modern day managers.
