Sir Bobby Robson passes away age 76

Recommended Posts

I was going to dig out 2J's tribute video on YouTube. What the hell has happened to your account Jonny? :lol:

 

As for the 'rename the East Stand' argument, I don't think it's fitting to rename the smallest stand in the ground - rename the Gallowgate IMO, I never liked it as the 'Brown Ale Stand' anyway. Much more fitting :aye:

It got removed mate.

 

I will get them all re-uploaded later on today. :nufc:

Fucking bureaucrats sticking their nose in!

 

Hope you do mate - I could do with watching them whilst raising a glass to the man who made football enjoyable. :aye:

Hate to say it but it seems a bit inappropriate naming anything after him at present. I'd hate it to be tarnished in even the slightest way by association with the current regime.

Aye you've got a point.

 

Did anyone see the BBC news earlier? Some bloke who runs an Ipswich fanzine claiming that he wasn't Newcastle's Sir Bobby as we turned him down as a kid, his heart was always with Ipswich first.

 

FFS - football has lost a great man and this clown is playing 'first dibs'. Idiot!

He actually chose Fulham over Newcastle iirc, rather than being rejected by us. In any case I think we all know and understand why Sir Bobby had a very deep affection for Ipswich due to the fantastic things he achieved there.

Steve's plan for this evening:

1 - Call in at the supermarket/offy on the way home and buy some Dog (a rarity for me)

2 - Get changed out of work clothes and into toon shirt

3 - Repeat step 2 on Mrs Paws and Master Paws

4 - After Master Paws has gone to bed (in his toon shirt) drink aforementioned Dog from a schooner (Mrs Paws has some old 1940's schooner shaped glasses given as a present from her Grandma; which I've always hated but now they have a purpose); raising a toast to Sir Bobby

5 - Repeat step 4 until Dog has gone.

 

Not much of a plan, but there you have it.

Correct. He played for Fulham and West Bromwich Albion in the Football League. He never played for Ipswich Town (He managed them, with great success, of course). I really don't know where the Ipswich fanzine guy is coming from here.

Very tempted to drive to Ipswich and put some flowers at his statue at Portman Road, not sure if I can do it as I'll be a blubbering mess as soon as I see him.

You feel like you are going to go through a brick wall for him. You want to do things beyond the normal for Bobby Robson.

Aye I know he chose Fulham. This clown was basically just giving it the "dunno why Newcastle is getting all the coverage, blah blah blah".

 

It's all immaterial surely? Football has lost a great man, not just Ipswich, Newcastle, etc. First memories I have of Sir Bobby was as England manager - best leader of our national team I've ever known and, had we not won the WC in '66, he'd be way out in the lead as the best we've ever had. And what's more he was a true gentleman with it.

He can kiss my arse. I hate this OOT shit. I was born in Newcastle, I was raised in Newcastle and most of my family still lives in Newcastle and the surrounding areas.

 

It's not like I can just jump on the Metro and go the SJP can I?

 

Anyway, this is not the thread for this.
