Your favourite POSH gobshite is back on radio cambs tomorrow.

Turns out he wasn't actually banned as such just by Chris Mann who it seems couldn't handle him 😂

Anyway, on just after 0810 alongside a club legend with an announcement.

Yep me.
Had not long joined the RAF and was told I couldn't have time off to go to the match.

Yeah like that was going to happen :lol:

I recall there was an awful lot of POSH there and we were somewhat taken aback when the home fans changed ends at h/t

I don't remember much about the game....but I recall plenty of fights breaking out inside the ground.

Plenty of Posh there yes....but I don't think any of us realised they had so many 'fans'

Tommy Robson 50th Anniversary Celebrations

General idea is to have a year of events to commemorate the legend's 50 year anniversary.


Evening functions at various venues culminating in a match at London Rd kindly agreed to by Darragh.
Possibly Chelsea or Newcastle who he played for back in the day.


Lots of hard work ahead but Sir Tommy has lots of contacts in the game as does a certain person at the club who has promised to help and just as importantly the good will of a whole city.


As ever I and others will keep you all informed as to what's being planned and look forward to your support.
POSH fans as a whole are a generous bunch and I am sure he'll get some great support.


Robbo played amongst a generation that made no real money out of the game and although the year is one of celebration it would be nice if we made this POSH legend a few quid as frankly he having to work still at 70 plus seems a bit wrong when even lower level footballers if they are sensible could nowadays retire a lot earlier.


Anyway, Thanks.

Brilliant Adi. I think Robbo will be working for this club whether he needs to or not. He is just that sort of person and has a great love for Posh.

great idea. Tommy Robson has to be the Posh great for me, as he played when I first started watching Posh as a youth
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

Truly a unique player and a real Legend. Deserves every accolade spoken about him.

Robbo and John Barnes were my childhood heroes. They made me want to play football. Tremendous bloke who deserves all the good things he gets.

Great idea. I'm surprised nothing has been done like this before. I'm sure Adi is working through his Posh legends list when he has time :wink: :D :clap2: spot on work though
