|I Went To Watch 'Bobby Robson: More Than a Manager' At Wembley Tonight|
at 01:50 24 May 2018
It's funny, heartwarming, emotive, beautifully shot and extremely well put together.
Don't want to write too much, so as not to spoil it for those yet to see it - Sir Bobby's time managing in Spain, Portugal and Holland are all covered, as is his time as England manager and Ipswich!
There are some wonderful moments shared at various times during the film by (the original) Ronaldo, Pep, Mourinho, Shearer, Lineker, Ferguson and Gazza.
Good amounts of footage - Ronaldo really had the lot as a player - and there is a good amount of ITFC coverage.
While Henry Winter was the host, Terry Butcher was the guest speaker tonight and did an excellent job. He said the England team should watch this film before they go to the World Cup, and he is right!
Lady Elsie was in attendance, as was their son, Mark, and I bumped into Barry Fry.
My estimation is around 2000 attended tonight - I didn't see many Town shirts though but perhaps that more to do with the dip in temperature rather than non-attendance.
A wonderful film that encapsulates Sir Bobby very well indeed and I would recommend it as a must-see for all Town fans!
Sir Bobby would be proud, very proud indeed!
PS I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Terry Butcher tonight and he happily posed for some pictures. I asked him about the possibility of him and George taking over as manager and No 2. He replied that the club want to go for someone younger, and confirmed that neither him nor George had been invited for an interview.
If you have a ticket, you are in for a real treat, and if you don't have a ticket, I would recommend that you buy one!
Thanks for reading!
