Customer Review

on 9 December 2009
I really can't understand why people rate "Robbo" so highly. His years as captain at Manchester United saw them win next to nothing. By coincidence, after he was shipped out to Middlesborough, the club went on to become one of the most succesful teams in Europe. Similarly, England's best two performances at World Cups since 1966 (namely 1986 & 1990) coincided with "Captain Marvel" crying off injured. He managed to play in all three games of Euro 88 and England were soundly beaten in each.
But this is nothing compared to his managerial "career". Three seperate relegations with three different teams is an achievement that speaks for itself.
I had hoped the catalogue of disasters described above would make for an entertaining read - but Robson even manages to botch this. This is nothing more than a dull descriptive of the time he spent in the game.
I suppose by being an execrable author it can be argued that football management is not the biggest failure of his life.
