Tribute to Big Bob RIP



One of our chums known to many in the online Clarets world as 'Big Bob' sadly passed away last night after a battle with cancer. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this tragic time.

I met him on our away travels many times and in many pubs but I will always remember in particular standing next to him in the aisle at the Madejski Stadium waiting to celebrate our play-offs semi-final victory & march to Wembley. When the final whistle went we celebrated together jumping about and hugging in ecstacy! We were even captured on the TV chatting before the final whistle. A true gent and a true Claret who will be sadly missed..RIP lad!
