Storyline

In the summer of 1995, Bobby Robson was diagnosed with cancer and given just months to live. Miraculously, in less than a year, Robson was managing the legendary F.C .Barcelona - motto 'More Than a Club'. But Bobby Robson was more than a manager. The miner's son from County Durham 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, including 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 United. Many of today's great managers owe their rise to Robson; a daring coach who 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 ... Written by Anonymous

Nice guys win
15 July 2018 | by SevenBillionthSee all my reviews

The depth of humanity of Sir Bobby Robson astounds me. His legacy still dominates the world's biggest sport today, through the likes of Pep Guardiola & Jose Mourinho. Sir Alex Ferguson credited Sir Bobby for helping him getting started in management. The two most talented players of their generation: Ronaldo & Paul Gascoigne said they owe him everything. The best goalscorers of their era: Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker likewise.

The World Cup Italia '90 scenes and the recent interviews with Gascoigne about his relationship with Sir Bobby were the most poignant. It's as if Sir Bobby saw himself in Gazza: both born entertainers, loved people, incredibly talented in their own ways. I think Sir Bobby knew after retiring, Gazza would not be able to cope without the game, just as he couldn't. Most people who are into football already knew most of the stories in this film, but not this one. I defy you to not to be moved.

He had an encyclopaedic knowledge of football and was sharp as a button, yet treated all those around him with respect and compassion. Such a rare combination of qualities make him inspirational.

Mourinho: "A person does not die until the last person who loves him dies".
