Don’t post on here Often. Just heard a rumour that the Bobby Robson statue has been defaced. If so it’s disgraceful

Has someone found an obscure link from Sir Bobby to racism? Bobbys great grandad supported slavery in the 1800s?

No mention on Green Un, Pink Un, BBC Suffolk, TWTD, EADT, Town official website. Guess your rumor stands inaccurate.

Thought for a moment why would anyone want to offend the Robson statue then recall items and merchandise were taken soon after the tributes left after the initial passing. Bottom line if something's there to take advantage of or cause offense then one or two individuals will take it upon themselves to step up and undertake such action/s.
