Sir Bobby Robson is the Toon's favourite son. Universally loved and respected, his popularity embraces the town as much as Newcastle United, a football club he managed with great distinction. His book is an inspiring portrait in words and pictures of a large vibrant city in the north east, proud of it's history, it's architecture, it's culture and it's great football club. Bobby Robson's association with Newcastle goes back to his early childhood and in this beautifully illustrated book he comments with passion about the local people and places that have meant so much to him throughout his life - from Jackie Milburn via Bryan Robson to Kevin Keegan, from the early coal mining culture and music halls to the radical architecture of modern Tyneside.

Author Biography - Bobby Robson
Bobby Robson was born in 1933 in the heart of the mining community in Sacriston, County Durham. Soon afterwards, his family moved to Langley Park, where Bobby's footballing career started, and where he became an apprentice electrician in the mines at the age of fifteen. In 1950, he joined Fulham, followed by West Bromwich Albion in 1956. He won twenty caps for England before embarking on a management career with Ipswich Town, which lasted for thirteen years. He left the club in 1982 to take up the position of England manager, and then coached in Holland, Portugal and Spain before taking over at Newcastle from 1999 until 2004. He has been closely associated with Newcastle throughout his entire life.
