Sir Bobby Robson died earlier today, he was a true footballing legend where I grew up. He was the manager who led Ipswich to both the FA Cup and UFEA cup victories in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. He was the man who can be credited with developing our successful youth policy. He was a truly great leader whose contribution to the Town cannot be over estimated.
The Town website today carries tributes from the former players of the glory days. The BBC site details his achievements as England and Newcastle manager aswell as for the Town and has some clips of him being honoured which illustrate something of the affection held for him.
So today I raise a toast in memory of Sir Bobby Robson.
