Tribute to Big Bob RIP

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!
