Sir Bobby Robson is a local hero in the North East, and is also known throughout the football world, as one of the most loved people in the game.

Bobby has also been a Newcastle United fan all his life and was very successful as our manager from 1999 through 2004, when he had the team finish 4th, 3rd and 5th in successive seasons. and of course had us in the European Champions League.
So it is very good news indeed that Sunday`s game against Liverpool is being named Sir Bobby Robson Day, and it has all been set up by the Newcastle United Supporters Club (NUSC) , so good work by them.
Fans are being asked to bring flags, banners and scarves to fully celebrate the fantastic avhievments of Sir Bobby.
Here’s a quote from the NUSC regarding Sunday:
“Its official! Sunday 28th December 2008 will be Sir Bobby Robson day, a day to honour this great Geordie figure and promote the work of his charity.”
“A day to celebrate his life and love of Newcastle United. This is our chance to show Sir Bobby what we really think of him, sing your hearts out and get behind the team, bring a banner and scarf and lets get the stadium bouncing.”
“What do you need to do? simply pass the message on to everyone you know.”
Sunday is a chance to celebrate the magnificent career of our very own Bobby Robson, so please come to cleebrate and we’re sure Joe Kinnear will have the lads ready to give a great performance against the league leaders on Bobby’s special day.
