Sir Bobby Robson for Ipswich Town F.C. sign now

We, the undersigned, believe the way forward for Ipswich Town F.C. would be the return of Sir Bobby Robson as Chairman/Director of Football with a young up and coming manager as First Team Coach. We thank Joe Royle and David Sheepshanks for their efforts but believe a fresh approach is needed.

If Sir Bobby sees this, WE WANT YOU! This petition is an indication of the support you would get if you decide to come and try to rescue this great club. We hope that if this is a possibility you will consider the views of us, the fans of Ipswich Town.

For those unsure, please read the following;

Bobby Robson for Chairman/Director of Football?
Why ever not? He loves the club and football in general, doesn't need the money, has a fountain of knowledge about the game in his head and all the contacts you could ever want, has the respect of everyone in the game (including the players) and would give the whole club an incredible lift. He's a proven, successful coach, who insists on the game being played the right way. He may now not want the pressures of a manager but I`m sure he`d still love to get back into the game in some capacity. Derek Bowden and the other directors can take care of the business side.

Maybe in a dream team with Frank Yallop, Tony Mowbray, Terry Butcher or even a returning George Burley as first team coach? People say "never go back" but I don't see why not. Coming back never did Johnny Wark any harm.

Can you imagine the joy and new found optimism that would sweep through the club if we heard tomorrow that David Sheepshanks had stepped down, Joe Royle had resigned, and Sir Bob+A.N.Other had come in to turn this club around?!?!? Ok the money problems would remain, but I believe Sir Bobby, alongside a young manager, would galvanise a team that seems more without direction than without talent. And I feel Sir Bob would have sufficient contacts to bring in the unknown talent that is surely out there somewhere (and could call in a few favours too).

I also believe our struggling search for loan players would be boosted if it were Sir Bob knocking on doors rather than Mr. Royle.

We, the undersigned, love Ipswich Town. Our club is dying but we believe Sir Bobby Robson + apprentice can breathe new life into it. Make it happen!
