Bobby Charlton is a massive twat. Geoff Hurst comes across as a bit of a dick, too.

As a kid I got told to fuck off by Geoff hurst when he was out shopping in ilford all I wanted was his autograph

He could have at least had the decency to scribble "Fuck off - Geoff Hurst". That would have been a fantastic souvenir to have.

I think most people are fond of all of the boys of '66. I am (with the exception of Bobby Charlton who I dislike) even though it was before I was born. One Christmas a few years back I bought my old man (who was at the game) a framed black and white picture of the iconic shot of them holding Bobby Moore aloft with the trophy in his hand.
