Rest In Peace Sir Bobby Robson

Posted by Jarv on July 31, 2009

Today is a sad day in the world of football a true football legend, a true gentleman, a person who everyone loved has passed away aged 76.

I’m sure his achievements will be list at length on various news sites but they are worth listing

Honour Team Year(s)
Texaco Cup Ipswich Town 1973
FA Cup Ipswich Town 1978
UEFA Cup Ipswich Town 1981
Rous Cup England 1986, 1988, 1989
Dutch Championship PSV Eindhoven 1991, 1992
Cup of Portugal FC Porto 1994
Portuguese Championship FC Porto 1995, 1996
Copa del Rey FC Barcelona 1997
European Cup Winners’ Cup FC Barcelona 1997

My first properĀ  memory of Watching England was with Robson at the helm at Italia 90 and had the lottery of the penalty shootout.

He was inducted into the Away goals Rule Hall of Fame as an Initial Inductee such was the feeling and support for him amongst our members.

It always amazed me how enthusiastic he was when ever he spoke about football, always dignified.

Today is a sad day in the world of football

RIP Bobby, you will be missed
