Bobby Robson

Recommended Posts

Watched this last night on Netflix, what an amazing man. Its a documentary about his football life and dealing with cancer. Some of it is very sad but as football fans it's highly recommended. 

I know he's nothing to do with us but the similarly of his man management is so like Klopp. 

Another one to see is Gascoigne, he's an absolute nut but had a lot of tragedy in his life.

I like SBR. He was a bit of a cheeky twat. Sent his Ipswich team out early to warm up in front of the Kop one game before our boys came out. 'Yer down the other end!' we all sang.

Great interview here by Jimmy Hill with the two Bob's....Brilliant from Robson too as he'd just lost the league that day yet is still gracious in defeat 

From 1min 20

Lovely man and a great manager. I took great delight in Newcastle going down a few years after they sacked him, what a disgraceful way to treat him after all that he had done for the club.

What happened when we arrived on the pitch?

Barca were cunts too, Newcastle and the tabloids. He remained classy throughout, a proper gentleman. Shearer is supposed to have had a lot to do with him being sacked too, to see Robson later on In a wheelchair opening a Hospital ward and Shearer trying to look friendly with him, that man is a right horrible cunt.

Always liked Bobby Robson, a proper football man who came across as a real gentleman.

There's not many of his ilk left in the game today which is a pity.

Exactly this.

 

He was an affable north-easterner like Sir Bob Paisley, and got a lot of shit off the red tops in particular when he was England boss. His treatment at Barcelona was shit too, where large sections of the local media were still pro-Cruyff (who'd been sacked as manager the season before) and against the Barcelona president Nunez, and saw Robson as Nunez's guy and second rate.

We had to warm up down the Annie Road end. I dont know if Ronnie or Joe told the boys as they came out as I dont remember seeing any of our players stop and look and think WTF?!

Barca were horrible ungrateful cunts and treated him like shit. One season he won 3 major trophies and was voted uefa manager of the season and they still wanted him out. Another time they were 8 goals up and they're fans were booing them and he couldn't understand why. Cunts is why. 

He seemed to be a real gentleman, a lovely man. Some parts of the documentary were very moving and sad. Well worth a look.

Great man but totally out of his mind during the WC 86. Kept making the wrong choices, only injuries led him to pick up the right players.

Interesting reaction. Probably correct given other teams would try it if we reacted. 

 

I remember this one from 2006, Mayo headed for Dublin's unofficial end. Huge potential for a massive brawl.

Not relevant or interesting, but there it is.

178,000 other people alive today in the UK also do. Equally irrelevant

The fact that Ipswich Town won the UEFA Cup is one that you have to keep Googling, because you think "Nah. I'm misremembering that. That never happened."
