The final tribute to Sir Bobby Robson


When Newcastle’s players and coaching staff dictate Eddie Howe Parading onto the training ground at Longbenton the first thing they see is a board of honor with the best managers in the club’s history. Picture of sir Bobby Robson is one of them, on the right, neatly dressed in a club blazer and a black and white tie, in ‘magpies’ colours. Every morning, they seem to say: ‘Good morning, Bobby‘. This is the permanent reference. And so it is, because no one forgets him at Newcastle, where he trained for five years, the last part of his career. He won nothing, but he left an indelible memory on the fans. The final at Wembley on Sunday will honor his memory.

That’s the party, sir Bobby Robson He wants to live to try to win a title for his beloved club, which he always went to play with his father when he was little. Also a former Barça manager, who would have turned 90 on February 18, became Newcastle manager after a long and highly respected international career, when he chose to return home to north-east England. When he returned to the club of his life in 1999, he applied what he knew how to do best as a coach, his ability to motivate and his infectious energy.

When Robson replaced Gullit, the ‘magpies’ were threatened with relegation, but their cohesion and enthusiasm sparked a great reaction in the dressing room. They reached the semifinals of the FA and the UEFA Cup, third place in the Premier and the second stage of the Champions League. He knows how to rebuild the club and restore self-esteem. He lacked titles, but he won fans over for his humanity and the grace with which he knew how to deal with defeat. Even with cancer, he never lost his good sense of humor.

Offered by Eddie Howe

Although he was fired in 2004 by the then president Freddie Shepherd, Over the years, as the club began to overlook what he had built with such dedication, his figure became even more of an idol. “It’s woven into us,” he has come to acknowledge. Eddie Howe the architect of Newcastle’s transformation. Sir Robson’s last appearance, in July 2009, clearly ill, was at Saint James’s Park itself, where he still had the strength to wave from the pitch in the run-up to a match between former players from in England and Germany, to raise funds for his cancer relief foundation. It represents a large part of his legacy.

The environmental heritage of Robson at Newcastle he was picked up Eddie Howe. Discipline, demand, effort, attention to detail. People in Newcastle recognize a clear similarity in the way of working and in the ethics of behaviour, especially in the intensity that is demanded Howe. Current ‘magpies’ coach doesn’t know Robson, but admits that “I’ve always admired him from afar.” And this past week he deposited a bouquet of flowers in her memory, the day she would have turned 90 years old. This season, everyone at Newcastle is feeling that, included Howethe bridge between the club and the fans has been rebuilt.

24 years have passed since Newcastle played in the Cup final, in 1999, against Manchester United, which they lost. Now the ‘magpies’, with ownership and investment from Saudi Arabia, will have the chance to win their first trophy since the 1969 Fairs Cup, with Joe Harvey at the bank. He was the last coach to succeed at Saint James’ Park. Later, a distinguished cast of technicians passed by. Ending a 54-year long wait for a first major trophy since the 1969 Fairs Cup was more than just a goal for Eddie Howe. Ironically, the rival is united again this time.

The Carabao Cup (League Cup) final has special significance for Newcastle. The ‘magpies’ will make the trip to the capital of London, supported by more than 32,500 supporters, in a climate of great enthusiasm. “We will be with all our strength to try to win,” he said Howe in an optimistic tone, but assumes that the favorite is Nagkakaisa. And it was that he couldn’t hide his disappointment at the dismissal that would remove his starting goalkeeper, the international, from lining up. Nick Pope. Newcastle should date former Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius whose career has taken a nosedive since his disastrous performance in the Champions League final in 2018. This is his chance to put it right. Karius competed with Mark Gillespie to start at Wembley.

the memory of sir Bobby Robson He will be very present on Sunday against United. He used to say, when Newcastle are together, they are twice as strong. And seeing the club and the city so excited to win the Wembley final, there’s nothing to be proud of right now.
