A class act through and through. Though I am United for life I have always had a deep respect for you, Sir Bobby. You will always be loved and never forgotten. Rest in perfect peace, Sir Bobby, rest in perfect peace.

Our hearts and prayers go out to your family and loved ones at this most terrible of times.

I loved hearing/reading Sir Bobby's analysis and punditry. He knew football inside out and pulled no punches when asked his opinion. Legend.

I met him after Newcastle played at Columbus in preseason 2000. He was very kind to take the time out to speak for a few minutes about youth development, when he must have been very tired and had a lot of people looking for his time. He was a real gentleman.

Sir Bobby was a quality human being. Spoke with him at length @ Fado's after the DCU/Newcastle friendly. Such passion and knowledge for the beautiful game. Rest in Peace my good friend Sir Bobby.
