Classic Football Adverts: Bobby Robson & Graham Taylor Send ‘Good Luck’ Cake To New England Manager Terry Venables, 1994 (Video)

To mark the ninth anniversary of the great man’s passing, here’s what might just be Sir Bobby Robson’s greatest feat of thespianism.

To help wish him well in his new job, former England managers Robson and Graham Taylor go halves on a gift for the newly-appointed Terry Venables.

It might just be a Yellow Pages advert, but it’s delightfully sweet and the three central performances, while cruelly overlooked at the 1994 Academy Awards, are so adorably quaint you might just struggle to fend off the waterworks…

They don’t make them like that any more – Yellow Pages adverts and football managers.
