Sir Bobby and the seven goals

My memory of former England boss Sir Bobby Robson who died today comes not from his time with England or Ipswich where his success taking a small club to big things is only rivalled by fellow legend Brian Clough but rather comes from a League Cup game about eight or nine years ago that City lost 4-3 to Newcastle United.

Robson faced a media ready to pick apart Hus teams defensive frailties and make much of the way his side had lost a large lead. Fault to be found in everything and everything to be found wanting.

Robson said this. “You saw a terrific game of football. Seven goals and very exciting. Go home happy.”

A lesson worth remembering.
