Bobby Robson: More Than a Manager

The Godfather of the modern game
Bobby Robson
Overcame Extreme Challenges

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.

A Daring Coach

A Daring Coach

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. 

“The greatest sports documentary since Senna.”
