5.0 out of 5 stars Warm, funny and throroughly entertaining - loved it
Most Forest supporters would agree that John Robertson, "Robbo", is a proper football legend who, having been involved with the beautiful game from the 1960s to the present, has more right than most to publish this collection of memories and stories. An interesting blend of knowledge, wisdom and humour "Super Tramp" is thoroughly entertaining which is only what you'd...

Was a good one to read, nothing of gossip to note but very sad about his daughter passing away.
Gives you an insight into John Robertson you might not know, in a good way.

Most Forest supporters would agree that John Robertson, "Robbo", is a proper football legend who, having been involved with the beautiful game from the 1960s to the present, has more right than most to publish this collection of memories and stories. An interesting blend of knowledge, wisdom and humour "Super Tramp" is thoroughly entertaining which is only what you'd expect from a guy considered to be the "star" of Cloughie's Championship and European Cup winning sides and; who's still at the top of his game in his supporting role to Martin O'Neill now based at Sunderland. Never takes himself too seriously, after all he was called "Supertramp" and "Fatman" off the pitch, Robertson speaks with the kind of confidence that can only come from a truly gifted player, and he was. Funny, warm and sometimes sad this is an easy book to read and I'd finished it in a couple of days. Highly recommended to all but particularly to Forest fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Tramp, Super Robbo, 24 Mar 2013

John Robertson is hugely ignored when it comes to compliling those 'Best Ever' football lists. He was one of the world's greatest footballers by anyone's stretch of the imagination. His book Super Tramp offers a splendid autobiography of his life and times with - again - one of the most underrated teams on the planet, Nottingham Forest. Never mind though, Clough and Taylor rated him as the best, and their opinion is good enough for me. Superb John.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Robertson, magic title great book, 17 April 2012

A real honest meander through Johns life. At times touching, funny, and thought provoking. Takes you steadily through how it all happened, at times its like he was on the side lines watching it unfold.Some real sadness in here sometimes feels like he is not sure how to tell you whats happened to him and those around him.
Clough crops up a lot not surprising genuine affection on JR`s part of the man that shared his most prolific years as the A1 winger in an exceptionally gifted Forest team. If you like Robertson, Clough, Forest or football this is one you have to read.

John Robertson was one of my favourite footballer and it was a pleasure to read his account about so many events from watching forest all those years ago.You cannot help but think that his experiences have turned him into a a contented individual and half decent human being

The book is an excellent insight into the life of John Robertson, probably the best player to play for Nottingham Forest
