When Sir Bobby Robson speaks we listen, and he has today talked about Newcastle United’s chances of surviving in the Premier League, and as always Bobby is upbeat – what a guy!
Sir Bobby Robson – legend at Newcastle and Ipswich
Bobby told Setanta Sports News today:
“They’re having a difficult time at the moment, but there’s enough in the team that I’ve seen that, in my opinion, will make them secure in The Premiership,”
“I can’t see them getting relegated.” “They’re playing now with a bit more spirit and a bit more competitiveness and I’m sure that they’ll do well this season.”
Joe Kinnear seemes to have turned things around well but he livces day to day as the uncertainbty surrounding the club’s future seems to deepen.
Bobby has also complimented England manager Fabio Capello, after he won all his opening four competitive games in the World Cup qualifiers. Robson was initially sceptical of the appointment of the Italian, but he now admits The FA made the right choice.:
“He’s done a wonderful job,” “He’s got the team playing well, we’re getting some great results and we’re favorites to quality, so I think we should all be delighted.”
Bobby’s glass is always half full, and if you want to be successful in football, or any line of work for that matter, it’s really hard to be successful if you are a pessimist. Optimism breeds success.
Bobby is a living legend on Tyneside, and he has also worn the Union Jack on his forehead for all to see, but he is also a legend at Ipswich, where he first performed his football management miracles.
But he represents Newcastle United as a life time supporter, and he brings the club some great press, and it’s just a pity we couldn’t have bestowed the title of Newcastle United Ambassador on him, after he finally retired.
