Summary

Revered in Newcastle and the North-East, Sir Bobby Robson is a man whose fame knows no boundaries and who enjoys phenomenal popularity. His hugely successful playing days with Fulham and West Brom in the 1950s and 1960s, his 20 England caps and his brilliant management career over the past 38 years mean that he has inspired generations of fans.

He has been witness to some of the most historic sporting moments throughout his incredible career, and in his book remembers epic incidents from the 'Hand of God' to the tears of Gazza. He also relives leading England through two World Cups, and the pain of coming within a penalty kick of the 1990 World Cup final.

Sir Bobby's story is a rich and diverse one and this autobiography will celebrate his remarkable life.

World class man and coach.

As an Ipswich season ticket holder and someone who watched Ipswich during the Robson years, I was rather nervous when I downloaded this book.
Would it portray Sir Bobby in the right light?

I had nothing to worry about. The man is a genius. Every young person should listen to this. It's a lesson in life and doing the right thing. He has honor and integrity in spades. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Bobby Robson

As a football fan, it is wonderful to hear Bobby talk of his life and his memories of events throughout his footballing days. He was a gentleman in a game no longer blessed with men of character and honesty as was the case in his heyday - a thoroughly enjoyable experience to listen to him and football fans will be interested to hear about the salary and contract negotiations going on behind the scenes. This is not just for Ipswich and Newcastle fans, its for every football fan.

sir Bobby Robson...gone but not forgotten

having listened to this audiobook i cannot recommend it enough. Sir Bobby was a true gent who was also a football master. He spent his career getting to the top of his profession when money was not the over riding requirement to obtain sucsess, a time when we as a footballing nation concentrated on bringing home grown talent to the top players playing for our clubs and then representing their country when the most important thing was, representing your country.It saddens me these great days of true english football have gone but memories contained within this book will always remain to show these golden days of our national sport.
Thanks for the memories sir Bobby.

Respect to the Man, But not to this book

Love a highly respected Sir Bobby Robson, but sadly this book I felt was weak, shot and smacked of being hurriedly pulled together
There is so much more that this great man has done but the book seems to rush through his life
Farewell Sir Bobby

Hugely Cut Down From the Original!

What a shame. This is only about a tenth of the original book. What bits there are, are obviously good but still disappointed overall.

Emotional

Hearing the late Sir Bobbys voice sometimes brings a tear to the eye, especially if you lived though Italia 90 like me,
