Product description


'From young boy to First Division star to successful manager, the pictures here do a fine job of capturing the changing face, not just of Robson but of football throughout his half century in the game. Of great interest to most football fans wil be the footage from Robson's troubled but ultimately successful spell as England manager during the 80s... for fans it is an affectionate look at the footballing life of a man who everyone within the game holds in the highest esteem.' (INK magazine (Dec 2003))

'A perfect present for a Newcastle or any football fan.' (ACCENT magazine (Nov 2003))

'Like its subject, the adjective which first comes to mind when considering this illustrated biography is 'lovely'. Sir Bob's life story, the subject of countless articles, TV programmes and previous books - two of them by Harris - might be familiar, but the addition of page after page of superb archive photography does the near-impossible by making football's classiest manager look even classier.' (DAILY MIRROR (29/11/03))


The first illustrated celebration of the life and times of Sir Bobby Robson, one of the most successful managers ever, much loved and respected throughout the world of football. For over fifty years (he joined Fulham in 1950) he has been involved football at the highest level, as a player, at First Division and international level (21 caps), and as coach and international coach (1982-90). As well as the triumphs, capturing the FA Cup and UEFA Cup with Ipswich, two exhilarating World Cup campaigns with England, and winning three cups and the respect of the fans at Barcelona, he has had his share of drama and despair. He was sacked from his first management position at Fulham and again later on in his career from Sporting Lisbon, he was hounded by the press whilst England coach, and has twice recovered from cancer. Bob Harris, a close acquaintance of Sir Bobby's, tells the football manager's own story, which is exclusively interlarded with stories and anecdotes from many of the most famous names in football. Sir Bobby is a living legend and this is a tribute to his amazing life.
