Prepare for a volley of Bobby Moore-related stories and social media posts on the anniversary of the great man’s passing on February 24.
Graybo and Gav share their Bobby Moore reflections …
For me it can be summed up in one word – Pride.
Imperious defender who gained accolades from the very finest in the game including Pelé, Beckenbauer and so many more.
Gentleman, Leader, Grafter, Highly Skilled, Generous, Polite, Caring… the list of his attributes goes on and on.
As for the boys – they get it. They really do. They’ve keenly watched footage of Bobby Moore wherever they could – especially the younger one.
Their sense of pride may be borne of a desire for success that they’ve never tasted, an affliction for which I can only blame my Grandfather, the old man and myself.
Then again what better famous role model could you wish your kids looked up to?
‘West Ham won the World Cup’ is also great for them to come back at all the Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool fans with, but it’s Bobby Moore who’s front and centre when they talk about the club at that time.
