Ipswich Town FC UEFA Cup Winners 1981 – 40th Anniversary Book
The 1980/81 season was, without doubt, the pinnacle of Bobby Robson’s management career with Ipswich Town as his team came within a whisker of clinching a truly remarkable treble.
In a season that stretched to an incredible 66 games and playing an exhilarating brand of brilliant attacking football, they suffered the heartbreak of missing out on both the FA Cup and League Championship right at the death before finally lifting the UEFA Cup, one of European football’s most coveted prizes. Included in the Ipswich team were such legends as Mick Mills, Russell Osman, Terry Butcher, John Wark, Frans Thijssen, Arnold Muhren, Paul Mariner and Talksport presenter Alan Brazil.
All these and many more memories from a truly dramatic season are captured in this lavishly illustrated book. The UEFA Cup run is covered in detail with match reports, statistics and profiles of every player who appeared in Town’s quest for European glory in a season when the whole of Ipswich was swept away in a tidal wave of euphoria the like of which has never been seen either before or since.
