Following the sad news that Sir Bobby Charlton died on October 21st we will hold a minutes applause to remember one of the greatest players of all time. Sir Bobby was a member of the England team that won the 1966 FIFA World Cup, the year he also won the Ballon d’Or. He finished second in the Ballon d’Or voting in 1967 and 1968. He played almost all of his club football at Manchester United, where he became renowned for his attacking instincts, passing abilities from midfield, ferocious long-range shooting from both left and right foot, fitness, and stamina. He was cautioned only twice in his career; once against Argentina in the 1966 World Cup, and once in a league match against Chelsea. With success at club and international level, he was one of nine players to have won the FIFA World Cup, the European Cup and the Ballon d’Or. He played 106 times for England and scored 49 goals. Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this sad time.
