Newcastle, Ipswich and England’s Bobby Robson will be declared a legend by the BBC

The Telegraph is reporting that Sir Bobby will be given the BBC Sports Personality of the Year’s ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award next month, surrounded by former players from Ipswich Town’s FA and Uefa Cup-winning squads, as well as the international players who played under his management. Previous winners have included Sir Alex Ferguson and Pele, and we can’t think of a more deserving winner.
Robson won titles in Holland and Portugal, two European trophies, an FA Cup, and was the last truly great England boss (Venables included), driving England in the World Cup, only to lose in the matter in which we have become accustomed, penalties. Among the rich list of players he has managed are Ronaldo, Gazza, Luis Figo, and Ronaldo; and his playing career is wonderfully told in this Telegraph article, a true legend, rightfully honored.
