TRIBUTE TO SIR BOBBY ON STAND

12 November 2021

Magic memories from that end of the stadium also included in new look

The Sir Bobby Robson Stand has been given a new look with a photographic tribute to the Town legend featuring prominently.

The former Blues boss, who spent 13 years in charge at Portman Road, is captured on 10 visuals displayed on the exterior of the stand, with some of the images rarely seen before.

Town’s success in the FA Cup and UEFA Cup are recognised, with the tribute also including quotes from - and about - Sir Bobby in his time as a Blue.

Iconic moments that took place at the Robson Stand end of the stadium also form part of the eye-catching look.

Pablo Counago’s late, late winner against Coventry in 2010; Jim Magilton’s hat-trick goal against Bolton in that dramatic Play-Off semi-final of 2000; Hermann Hreidasson’s dive into the crowd for a goal he ‘thought he had scored’ in the Premier League; the victory over Sheffield United after being two down and a man down; the night Blues stunned Cesc Fabregas and co and the 6-0 win over Manchester United are among the magic memories spotlighted.

The North Stand was renamed after Sir Bobby following his passing in 2009 and the emotional occasion of the official unveiling is also remembered.

The pictorial tribute to Sir Bobby is the latest venture by the Club’s new owners, Gamechanger 20, in their determination to make Portman Road a stadium to be proud of.

The Club would like to thank the East Anglian Daily Times for their help with some of the photos used.
