A tribute to Manchester United’s greatest ever player

by Sam Peoples

Sir Robert Charlton, Knight of the Realm, Ambassador of football.

Bobby Charlton, of Manchester United and England. Our Bob. 


Today is Sir Bobby Charlton’s 75th birthday. No words of comment can sum up what he means to Manchester United but this documentary does a mighty fine job in trying to encapsulate just what a man he is.

I wrote an extended piece of research into the Munich Air Disaster. Please have a read of this part which looks into how the disaster changed Sir Bobby Charlton.

He went into the Munich Air Disaster as a boy, and came out a man – a man that would lead his club and country through FA Cups, European Cups and World Cups. A true leader.

Long live Sir Bobby Charlton.
