* The Sir Bobby Robson Banner Fund *

The lads/lasses at the Toon Ultras have decided to push for a new banner to be hung over the Leazes Corner balcony forever , until needs replaced due to wear and tear.

 

We have contacted the club to ask permission for them to allow us to do this , and are awaiting the reply. Obviously there is alot of advertisement boards around that area, but if I remember correctly , last season away fans were allowed to hang over the balcony .

 

We are hoping that this may be the first of many banners we could have along the balcony of level 7 , but feel a Bobby Robson one would be a fitting start , as the man is still alive to see it. A Joe Harvey and Jackie Milburn one has been discussed , aswell as Alan Shearer.

 

We have set up a topic on the TU forum asking for designs here are a couple the lads have come up with:

I am sure there are some people out there who could come up with some good designs , we are giving til 12:00 tomorrow to come up with the designs , and then will be putting it to a poll to see which one we will go for .

 

We will be looking for small donations from fans across the country , and maybe world as he is not only a football icon in Newcastle , he is a footballing icon across the globe.

 

We are hoping this will be done very swiftly , but obviously the design and order needs to be sorted first.

 

Just remember what this man done for our club ( no success ) but brought happy times back to SJP , and what he has done for football in general !!

Love that quote (as you can see ;))

 

Great idea actually.. Can't say anything about him that hasn't already been said. Love the bloke.

we are loking for design to be done ASAP with pricing and what not collected hopefully by next week. we will then start raising money between our self, and donations would be accepted also and much appriciated from everyone.

Love the 90 minutes quote but here's a few others to consider as well:

 

"They can't be monks - we don't want them to be monks, we want them to be football players because a monk doesn't play football at this level"

 

"If we invite any player up to the Quayside to see the girls and then up to our magnificent stadium, we will be able to persuade any player to sign"

 

"Players never know why they are taken off or substituted - until they become managers"

 

"Home advantage gives you an advantage"

I really like the idea and i'd be happy to contribute... but i'm gonna sound like an arsey fart here. But anyway, i'd rather we used something more appropriate and serious than one of his daft comments. I loved his quotes as much as anyone, but that's kind of commemorating him as a figure of fun imo. I know it's certainly not in bad taste or anything, it just seems a bit sarcastic, really. He was more than that. Maybe i'm just boring.

Nah, I feel that way too. I like the more serious ones for such heroes, I like the black and white designs!

Although some people laugh at some of the supposedly senile comments that Robson has made, surely I am not the only person who thinks that they are rather clever, and testament to the man's enthusiasm?

I like that, but there's something about the "home advantage gives you an advantage" thing that gets me. It's something you could actually imagine Bobby telling his players before they run out on the pitch, sums him up with some of his daft quotes, and would just look good at St James' imo.
