Sorry if this already has a thread, but I could find it, so...

From the Daily Mirror

6 May 2006
BOBBY IN CANCER BATTLE NUMBER 3
By Allison Martin

FORMER England manager Sir Bobby Robson is battling cancer for the third time, it emerged last night.

The 73-year-old had surgery this week to remove a lung tumour.

Doctors spotted the growth when he went for an X-ray after injuring ribs during a skiing accident in France.

His spokesman said: "He is convalescing and looking forward to getting back to his commitments."

The ex-Newcastle United boss was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 1992.

Three years later specialists found he had a rare form of mouth cancer and gave him just 18 months to live. He was told to give up his job but battled on and was back at work within three months.


Sir Bobby has been treated at the Freeman hospital in Newcastle - which specialises in lung transplants - for his latest tumour. He is recovering at home in County Durham.

He has been working as consultant to the Republic of Ireland team since January.

Manager Steve Staunton said: "Knowing him as I do he'll be back fighting fit in no time."

Old news & what's more misleading. <_<

Here's a more accurate report from a more reliable source:

BBC link

No word of cancer. Back in January they said there was nothing to worry about, the tumour was malignant.

Two things...the BBC report was before all of the facts had been released.

And I presume you mean benign...

Yep, good thing I'm not a Doctor, hey! <_<

My ire was at the Mirror, not you, Dr. H. Sir Bobby is not exactly "battling cancer for the third time". It was looked at, removed, and Sir BR is as fit as a fiddle for a man his age. If you read that Daily Mirror report alone, you'd think something quite differently.

But the Daily Mirror are wrong for so many reasons.

Most of their staff still believe in Socialism, for a start <_<

At least Trinity Mirror PLC's new chairman is expected to sell the national papers to invest in the locals.

About time, too, the Mirror has been stale for years.

Nothing, nothing at all. :angry:

They may beg, they may plead, they may argue with my logic

And mention all the things I'll lose that really have no value

In the end they will surely know, I wasn't born to follow

Nice idea in theory, would never work in practice. What motivation is there for the intelligent/hard workers if they know all their efforts will just go to benefit the stupid and lazy?

So instead we use an economic system in which the stupid are made to work hard for the intelligent and lazy. It ought to make sense, but I'm afraid I'm too stupid to get it.

you mean China, for example? Somehow I doubt N. America and W. Europe would have so much immigration but for people concluding their socio-economic systems are a lot better than what anyone else has on offer

I had capitalism in mind, so China is a valid example.

On a more serious note: I don't think capitalism and socialism differ much in the way they exploit people. The main difference lies in the way it is decided who exploits whom.

Hey, I'm intelligent (in a general sort of 'no use to anyone' way, but you didn't say wise) & lazy, but I still work. Well I have a job, it's not quite the same thing.

Although when I'm at work I always feel I drop a few dozen IQ points on entering the building and vice versa, so that makes me stupid too, meaning I'm an integral part of the current economic system by my reckoning.

I am at work at the moment though, so who knows? <_<

I did see a Sir Bobby Robson interview on Sky last night, and he looked and sounded fine, just a bit forgetful, so no change there. There, that bit was relevant, even if it contained no news of any worth at all.

I saw that interview, he didn't look well at all. it's in the eyes. A fair bet for 07....

This must make him an obvious candidate for 2007 if he lasts. I don't think he will, somehow

He's had a few problems already this year, but the word is

The hospital's bed-site manager said his condition was "comfortable".


although on the flip-side of the coin

The hospital could not give any details about the symptons Robson was suffering with when he was admitted.

It is understood the former England manager was accompanied by Dr Hugh Davies, his cancer specialist, who had been a guest of Robson at the match.


So it's anyone's guess

It's always funny until someone gets hurt, and then it's hilarious.
