The German Bobby Moore. Possibly even more cultured than Bobby on the pitch.

Presumably, as big a loss to Bayern Munich as Bobby Charlton was to Manchester United.

Sad news indeed. One of the greats who would be in my all time eleven.
Loved watching him play.

And JPR Williams on the same day. Two legends.
