Remembering Bobby Moore
For me, Bobby Moore is the greatest defender in the history of the game, better than Frans Beckenbaur or any of the modern pretenders. This documentary cronicles his life and is really worth a watch. You can download it as a torrent file at this location.
Lack of pace and modest ability in the air are not normally qualities associated with a world-class defender. For Bobby Moore, shortcomings in those areas were an irrelevance.
A phenomenal ability to read the game, a cool, reassuring presence under pressure and superb timing in the tackle made England's 1966 World Cup-winning captain one of the finest defenders ever.
