About the Film
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. Starring an A list cast (Mourinho, Guardiola, Ronaldo, Gascoigne, Shearer, Lineker, Sir Alex Ferguson) never before seen archive and emotional testimony from Lady Elsie Robson, this is the definitive portrait of one of sport’s most inspirational and influential figures. Pioneer, Mentor, Game-changer, Messiah. Bobby Robson More Than A Manager.
Legend, a english hero, a national treasure, an inspiration
The first real book I read on holiday was just call me bobby, a fellow electrician, I read for the first time in my life and entire book start to end.. didn't think it was possible.
What a man, what a life. I found my whole body transported back to rollercoaster emotions as a kid during that world cup and relaised how great a leader and inspiration a normal guy can be to others.
Just look at the legacy still influenced by him today in football. This films shows that..
My personal hero, I hope to leave a fraction of legacy like his, it is a life worth living.
