As a Newcastle united fan I would like to thank all your away supporters for their response to the announcement yesterday, that there was a statue dedicated to Bobby Robson, you did yourselves proud. So did your team but I am trying to forget about that.
Great man and a fantastic character. I had the honour of meetng Sir Bobby and
he is a really down to earth guy. He gave the Irish assistant manager role a lash
and unfortunatly events meant he had to give up his post although, I'm sure all
Irish will be filled with respect for him.
Imo, Sir Bobby Robson was the 2nd greatest international manager this country has ever had (after Sir Alf Ramsey). He was a credit to Newcastle when he was your manager and there are not many people who are more knowledgable and respected in the game.
I know a story, a true story, about a certain striker who was at Newcastle and Sir Bobby - a striker who had him ( Sir B) hounded out because said manager dropped said striker. The striker in question is most definitely NOT a nice person.
