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.

Sir Bobby Robson was a real fighter and a real inspiration to sports and to humanity. The movie was great. Real in depth interviews with some of the world's current and past time elites in football. By the end of the movie I was barely able to hold in my emotions and had to fight back the tears.
What a man and what a legacy! A must watch for any football fan and an amazing documentary that anyone can watch and enjoy. RIP Sir Bobby Robson. You will be missed.
