For those who haven't seen other mentions elsewhere there will be various fundraising events being organised which I hope will be well supported.

Clubs talk about legends in and around their football club but nobody deserves the title 'legend' more than Tommy Robson. Nearly 130 goals in just over 500 appearances and he has served the club so religiously ever since he hung up his boots. He is the sort of character that if you have spoken to him just once, he will remember you and is always ready to chat with everybody concerned with the club.
Managers, owners, players all come and go but Tommy has always been there as a fan of Peterborough United. We all wish that he manages to keep that smile going. I'll be going to listen to him on September 30th at the senior citizens event at the club from 12.00 till 2.00pm. looking forward to all his special memories from his time in football and particularly at Posh.

An absolute legend and in addition to all of his goals, his assist rate was incredible. Such stats weren't acknowledged back in those days, but I think Jim Hall would be the first to agree on this one. All the best Tom, we are all behind you and you are "on the wing, on the wing".

This has had a much bigger impact on me after Tommy Robson's recent tragic announcement but it was obviously already a desperately sad story.
Thoughts are also with Stephen Darby who is going through some **** too.

Totally agree. There are so many **** diseases and conditions that young and middle aged people are becoming susceptible to nowadays. All very sad! :(

I think the majority are a result of improvements in medicine, seems an odd thing to say, but sadly old age brings lots of ills, whereas back in Victorian times and earlier people were dying before the reached the ages we accept as normal today.
