A tribute to the legendary Bobby Charlton
Let me start today’s column with the sad news that Bobby Charlton has passed away, as announced in a statement from his family yesterday.
The former Manchester United and England man was an absolute legend of the game, and will continue to be remembered fondly, without a doubt.
I think the word “legend” can be thrown about a bit too easily at times, but he was an certainly example of a true footballing legend all over the world, even here in Italy. My thoughts go out to his family, he will be legend of our beloved sport forever.
Kaoru Mitoma and those Barcelona links
It’s been a really important week for Brighton as they extended the contract of a really important player - Kaoru Mitoma. The Japanese winger has been a top performer for Brighton and is surely now one of the best wingers in the Premier League. Many clubs were attentive to his situation, but Brighton have been able to extend his contract until 2027.
