There are some things that are just written in the stars and Sir Bobby Robson coming home to manage his beloved Newcastle United was definitely one of those that was written in very large letters. Now you can relive it all in a brand new DVD.
Newcastle went into their eighth match of the season with only one point, the calamitous Gullit reign had ended with the Dutch manager leaving out Alan Shearer for the visit of sunderland, madness!
That derby defeat proved Ruud’s last act and Sir Bobby flew in to save the love of his life.
As home managerial debuts go, this will live forever in the memory.
Sir Bobby sent his team out at St.James’ Park for the first time and ninety minutes on the pitch later, they’d given him 3 points and 8 (EIGHT!) goals.
I’d always dreamed of owning this class match and some 13 years later it has finally come out today on DVD. It is an absolute must have and you can get it at this current (might not stay at this price) bargain price of only £9.70 from AMAZON, with free UK delivery!
