Ant and Dec Use The Mag To Honour Sir Bobby Robson

7 years ago

Today has seen Sir Bobby Robson honoured yet again, this time people queuing up five years after his passing, to remind everybody of what a difference he made to all of our lives.

The one-time Newcastle United manager has of course left a phenomenal legacy with his Foundation, the total money raised to fight cancer and help those who are battling it, has now reached an outstanding £7.3m.

Amongst the many paying tribute to Sir Bobby today, were Ant and Dec.

When I saw their moving tribute I thought, I’ve seen that somewhere before…

Ant and Dec tweeted this below;

However, if you look below you will see, they appear to have chopped something off above their image which would then have told everybody where they had got the image from…

As great ambassadors for the region and supporters of so many great north east causes, we’ll let the cheeky chappies off this time.

This is the cover of Issue No.238 of our magazine, the issue that followed Sir Bobby’s sad passing back in 2009.

Definitely my favourite ever Mag cover and I know that goes for many other Newcastle fans as well.
