ROBSON, Bryan (Pop) Hi; Bryan is my all time favourite West Ham player. I used to love seeing him score goals and it gave me such a buzz. He was a fantastic player and one of the most natural goal scorers I have ever seen. I once wrote to Bryan and he wrote back to me in his own hand writing which was brilliant. I once had a picture of him on my wall showing him shooting against Gordon Banks. I would love to meet Bryan just to tell him how much I loved him (as a player) although my wife may not understand.

ROBSON, Bryan (Pop) I used to love 'pop' Robson. Of course having the same surname may have had something to do with it ! (Robson , is of course, a Geordie name. And my Dad came from that part of the world) The best goal I ever saw 'pop' score was a screamer at Wrexham in 1978/79 season, where he spun on the ball on the edge of the Wrexham box before planting the ball in the back of the net. Unfortunately West Ham lost 4-3 that day. I always felt it was particularly bad luck that 'pop' missed out on two cup final wins by the Hammers. In 1974 he went to Sunderland and so missed the 1975 2-0 win against Fulham. He came back to West Ham (in Ithink 1977) but then moved on again in 1979 and so missed out on the 1980 1-0 victory against Arsenal. Always a great player and a great character. A crying shame that he never won an England cap.
