    Came across as a straight talker but not just to be controversial. Sorry to hear he's out forever. RIP sir!

    Terrible news, RIP Bob, I remember the 81 ashes very fondly as the Old Trafford test was my first

    Goes to show how well respected he was.

    Knowing (of) Bob, I wouldn't be surprised if Denly's dropped catch the other day seen him off.

    I was going to say he had a good innings but sadly never did.

    Very sad news. He looked perfectly healthy on the Ashes debate in the summer.

    I never got the chance to see him bowl but he was one of my favourite cricket pundits.
