One of my all-time favourites.

He left us the first time because he said his wife was home sick and couldn't settle, so they went back to her home town of Sunderland. He returned a couple of years later and continued to bang them in for us but left again for Sunderland.

This was the man that got me excited as a 12 year old. My hero.

His wife was a gymnast, or was it table tennis?

Re: Happy Birthday Bryan POP Robson
Who did he leave us for (mid 70's) before he came back (78?) ... was that S'land or Newcastle?

Re: Happy Birthday Bryan POP Robson
One of the main reasons I carried on supporting the club when I look back as a 12 year old kid travelling up from South East London standing on an orange box to see over the wall down the front of the west side for my first game at UP, we beat the saints 4-3 and Pop got a hatrick. Fantastic striker! I was hooked after my first game and was back week after week, then home and away.

I remember seeing the Bald Assassin at UP, when him and Wyn Davies was the Mags strike force and thinking to myself, I would love to see him, in our side

I'd like to think God heard my little prayer

Re: Happy Birthday Bryan POP Robson
Sunderland fans called him the Bald Assassin, which I think is rather apt

Re: Happy Birthday Bryan POP Robson
Great player. Marvellous goal v Wrexham I recall. Important goals that kept us from relegation in 1970's.

Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop Robson,
Score a little goal for me...

Happy birthday Bryan.

Re: Happy Birthday Bryan POP Robson
Geep, I heard he took ballet lessons to help with balance?

In any case, my favourite WHU striker and the best player England never had

HAPPY BIRTHDAY POP

Pop's father-in-law ( Lennie Heppell) was a former dance champion who then became a dance teacher. He did indeed teach Pop dance exercises to improve his game.

Happy birthday Pop

Re: Happy Birthday Bryan POP Robson
Iirc correctly, his father-in-law was a table-tennis coach, and gave him training to sharpen his reactions.

It certainly worked
