Sir Bobby, your passion for club and country was simply unparalleled. I will always remember you as a gentleman and true footballing legend. Despite you're being a Geordie through and through, you have earned my respect for your dedication to the beautiful game. It's time for you to put aside the pain and get some rest, fine sir. Until we meet somewhere over the rainbow...
Goodnight, Sir Bobby.
