Although we may now be operating under the austerity of a transfer embargo, there was a time when Craven Cottage was the place to be.

There was a period in our history where we had no problem attracting some of the biggest names in the game.

I`m talking of the era when our first eleven was graced by the likes of Rodney Marsh, George Best and Bobby Moore.

Sadly the latter two on that list of who`s-who of the game, are no longer with us.

However, we`d like to point out that the latter, Bobby Moore, would have been celebrating his 75th birthday.

Now whilst Bobby may have played most of his career for West Ham United, making over 500 appearances, Bobby did don our own famous shirt in excess of 100 times.

Also, during his career, Bobby made 108 appearances for England and remains the only England captain to ever lift the World Cup when he led England to success, over West Germany, back in 1966.

Bobby died back in 1993, a victim of cancer.

Tonight, I`ll hope you`ll join me in raisin a glass to one of the most complete defenders the game has ever known.
