For a generation growing up, Nobby was the hard man in the England team.I'm not adverse to a bit of black humour, but a lot of 'look at me' disrespect in this thread.
RIP to a proper football legend.
Think it was Alzheimer’s, he had been suffering for a while by all accounts, a proper footballer who in later years sold his collection of medals, which is tragic. Gone but never forgotten, one of England’s immortals.He did. His family are convinced it was due to heading the ball.
Crap spelling, Graeme obviously.He was actually very polite and studious off the park. Met him after Middlesbrough’s friendly with Hamilton in 1973, the season they romped Div 2 with a midfield of Graham Souness, David Armstrong and Bobby Murdoch. Nobby joked that was the only game Borough would win all season.
He actually played Bekenbauer very fairly in the 66 WCF, and I don’t think Eusebio had any complaints when Nobby man marked him in the semi.
