About this movie

In the summer of 1995 Bobby Robson was diagnosed with cancer and given just months to live. Miraculously, less than a year later Robson was managing the legendary FC Barcelona - motto ‘More Than A Club’. But Bobby Robson was more than a manager. The miner’s son from Newcastle played for his country. When he transformed Ipswich into European winners it was clear his real talent lay in coaching. Fearless, his gift was to be at his best when the worst threatened. Via the Hand of God, Gazza’s tears, England’s greatest world cup abroad to titles in Europe’s top leagues and a Barcelona treble, Robson overcame the most extreme challenges before a career like no other came full circle when he returned to ‘save’ his beloved Newcastle. Many of today’s great managers owe their rise to Robson. A daring coach he could spot genius and help it grow.

In a sport (and a world) that incentivises unethical behaviour here is the story of a man who never forgot who he was. Bobby Robson is a rare example of a man who lived in the public eye, in the highest level of world football and always remained true to the ethics that he believed in. UK people are lucky to have had some amazing sports personalities to support over the years. Bobby Robson deserves to be celebrated as one of the greatest men that we have produced. This film explains why.

Quite simply the best English football manager who has ever lived! Passion, Pride, enthusiasm, aligned with a strong sense of what is right and proper. His record speaks for itself. It will be a long long time before we see anything of his like again, both Man or Manager!
