Bobby Robson – This Is What A Football Club Is All About – Video

9:49 am, Monday, July 1st, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 21 Comments

Here is just the video we all need at the moment, and it’s been created by one of our readers, Bev Crichton – it’s silent but gripping – and the words you see are about what a football club is all about – and they come from – who else but the great Bobby Robson – he’s actually describing Newcastle United.

Maybe Mike Ashley should take a look at this.

Compliments To Bev for a terrific and emotional video.

    MA simply doesn’t care for such sentiment.

    MAIAM – Was reported that he met with Dortmund on saturday. Not today.

    No bid from them, and after expressing his desire to play in England, and the great feedback he gave re NUFC in February, maybe we should hold firm on this.

    Keep the faith mate!

    Have PSG actually bid for cabaye or is al this on twitter just bolox?

    As for PEA , if he signs I hope he is given the number 7 Jersey .

    Pardew wants him, Carr wants him, I assume Kinnear wants him because of the initial bid.


    Would love to see us beat-off the competition for such a player! Yes there are a number of things which may go in our favour….. all we can do is hope MA coughs-up 20m..….

    That’s that settled then. Cabaye is staying! :-) Good ol’ Colin, brightening up my morning!

    Yeah, Colin said something one day (about 2 weeks ago), and then an hour later Indy claimed to have received an email from a ‘sauce’ which basically said what Colin’s tweet had said.

    Excellent, well done Bev.

    Its a shame colins twitter is private. Im devoid of all of his gems :(

  • 11 Markaccus // Jul 1, 2013 at 10:08 AM


    Are you one of the many who he blocked? I followed him a few years ago and have not managed to upset him yet

  • 12 estechco // Jul 1, 2013 at 10:09 AM

    Outstanding work Bev – brought a tear to my eye!

  • 13 rainrix // Jul 1, 2013 at 10:11 AM

    Markaccus…. No ive never had twitter but his tweets are protected so only confirmed followers can see his tweets. Which robs the rest of us simple folk of colins daily dose of insanity :)

    This has been an awful summer thus far and pre season starts soon. I’ve pretty much had it with this club. It’s crap after crap after crap. Time to support Gateshead.

  • 15 Markaccus // Jul 1, 2013 at 10:14 AM


    Dont worry, during transfer season i like to re post the most magnificent of his bs here. Mostly outlandish conclusions drawn fron paper talk and rumour.

  • 16 John Tudor // Jul 1, 2013 at 10:15 AM

    michael owen would love a return

  • 17 mikeashleyisamackem // Jul 1, 2013 at 10:21 AM

    we will lose out on pea imo we should move for nani ,yeah wages will be high but the fee should be less than 10 million and he has prem experience and is a cracking player when has faith shown in him he could be as good as pea or anyone else that we have been linked with

  • 18 rainrix // Jul 1, 2013 at 10:21 AM

    Markaccus…. Excellent :)

  • 19 mikeashleyisamackem // Jul 1, 2013 at 10:25 AM

    also i like the look of man utd flop who they signed from aston villa whats his name i cant remember it but think he also would be a good alternative

  • 20 oldbobaycliffe // Jul 1, 2013 at 3:31 PM

    bev watched my first game with my dad when i was 5 year old 65 years ago so many of the match clips i was at them matches and it brought tears to my eyes.

    What a brilliant piece of work Bev. You must do more. Ed was spot on when he described it as emotional. Excellent video.
