In the summer of 1995 Bobby Robson was diagnosed with cancer and given just months to live. Miraculously, less than a year later, Robson was managing the legendary FC Barcelona – motto ‘More Than A Club’. Bobby Robson was more than a manager. The miner’s son from Newcastle played for his country. When he transformed Ipswich into European winners it was clear his real talent lay in coaching. Fearless, his gift was to be at his best when the worst threatened. This thrilling film charts his success from his early days through to his crowning achievements.
