Movie Info

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 miner's son from Newcastle, he 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.

  • In this affectionate and moving documentary... the late Sir Bobby Robson emerges both as likeable and as far more driven and astute than was sometimes recognised during his lengthy coaching career.

  • The journalistic level of the talking heads interviews in the film-and the anecdotes they come up with-is unusually rich, but that's down to Robson's inspirational quality.
