"Immaculate footballer-Imperial defender-Immortal hero of 1966-National treasure-Master of Wembley-Lord of the game-Captain extraordinary-Gentleman for all time." So reads the inscription beneath Bobby Moore's statue at Wembley stadium. Since his death at just 51 from pancreatic cancer, this has been the accepted view of a national hero. But how much do we really know of England's only World Cup-winning skipper? We all know that Bobby Moore was an extraordinary captain and defender, but alongside his legendary feats on the pitch he knew scandal, death threats, bankruptcy business, and the sack. He divorced after a long affair, was rumored to have friends in the East End underworld, and he loved a drink.
