RIP Sir Bobby Charlton, legendary England and Man United player

106 caps and 49 goals for England
7th player with the most appearances (equaled with Frank Lampard)
3rd best scorer, only beaten recently by Wayne Rooney (53 goals) and by Harry Kane (61 so far). Gary Lineker was close but stopped at 48.

758 matches and 249 goals for Manchester United between 1958 and 1973
Second most apperances, first one is Ryan Giggs with 963
Second best scorer, first one is Wayne Rooney with 253

Of course one of the key player in the win in 1966. From the 22 players in the squad only 4 remain.

Don't forget Bobby Charlton was one of the survivor of the Munich crash in 1958. Before the took off he and Dennis Viollet switched seats with two other players : Taylor and Pegg, the latters didn't survived...

Bobby Charlton and Geoff Hurst were the only ones who got honored with the Knight Bachelor, hence their title "Sir".

Should Man Utd keep Ten Hag?

Personally I am a fan of the guy but some of his tactics and selection this season have left me scratching my head. Took him so long to take out Rashford, constantly playing Dalot, not giving Pellistric enough chances, I dunno...

I do not like constant change of managers, but nowadays I dunno.
