Sad news indeed as Bobby was such a legend.

Many peoples' lives have been touched by him over all those years supporting LFC home and away.

He was an ambassador for the club, and a damned good one at that.

He will be sorely missed but never forgotten by all who met him.

Sympathies to Bobby's family and friends at this moment in time.

Never had the pleasure of meeting Bobby although his face is familiar to me.

Does anyone know where he normally sat at the home games?

Back Row, Lower Kemlyn.

Bobby will be making his way through both the Kemlyn and Main Stand car parks on Friday for the last time, all tributes should be made by way of flags and scarves hung on the surrounding gates, fences and monuments.

Anybody planning on attending Bobby's send-off should wear a red tie.

Didn't know him personally - but I'm sure I've seen him around. Sounds like a Great Red and a Great man.

Thoughts go to his family and friends at this hard time.

Didnt really know the guy, but often saw him at airports or in hotel lobbys abroad - and yes he always seemed to be sorting people out with tickets with a smile on his face and laughter in his belly.

Bearing in mind the amount of people that know Bobby

just a thought

would it be a nice touch for a chant at the Derby

One Bobby Wilcox
there's only one

That would be boss i think,  no one deserves it more than Bobby.  That would put a smile on the big mans face.
