Bobby Robson is on the TV. In a wheelchair with glassy eyes and one of those vacant smiles people in nursing homes have. I am sad.
Watching pro-celebrity matches also makes me sad. Occasional flashes of brilliance from portly, balding ex-players frankly is not worth the ticket. Get on youtube and watch the old magic.
These boys simply havent got it anymore. It’s desparate to witness the loss of touch, heaving chests and plodding pace from guys I used all my pocket money on getting their stickers as a kid!
Things ain’t like they used to be!
