Scarves out for Bobby

Last updated : 02 October 2003 By Martyn Elliott

That’s why thousands of fans have already agreed to join in the unofficial scarf day, the brainchild of a small group of loyal Toon supporters that has captured the public imagination.

Everyone who is going to the game on Saturday can join in, just take along your scarf or flag and hold it aloft just before kick off and join in a rousing chorus of ‘There’s only one Bobby Robson’.

After the job he’s done for the club and the week he’s just had the least Sir Bobby deserves is a show of support from the fans, and it should make for one of the best atmospheres at St James’ Park for some time.

A big thank you is due to killers_perm and the guys on the toontastic forum who came up with the idea and have worked hard to get it publicity in the local press and even on national radio.
