After an unsuccessful first managerial experience at Fulham, Bobby Robson was recruited in 1969 by the then chairman of Ipswich Town, John Cobbold, to manage a club whose greatest success to that point had been the 1962 league title. It was in this eastern British town that Sir Bobby forged his identity as a manager. In the second half of the 1970s, the club began to flourish like the mines in which his father worked. In 1978, Ipswich won the FA Cup, the second official title in their history, with a narrow victory over Arsenal at the old Wembley. This marked a turning point for the modest English club, whose growth reached its peak in the early 1980s.

In 1981 and 1982, Robson’s men fell just short of a second league title. First Aston Villa and then Liverpool prevented them from doing so. However, the greatest success in the club’s history came in the middle of both silverware: winning the 1981 UEFA Cup. The rivals succumbed one by one to the ‘Gipes’, who saw the opportunity to make history at their fingertips. There were even several thrashings, such as the 5-0 thrashing of Polish side Widzew Lódz, who came into the game after eliminating Juventus, and the 4-1 win over Saint-Etienne in the quarter-finals. The final was also played over two legs. At Portman Road, Ipswich’s home ground since 1884, Robson’s men overcame Dutch side AZ Alkmaar 3-0, thanks to goals from John Wark, Frank Thijssen and Paul Mariner. In the return leg, AZ’s 4-2 win was no consolation for the Dutch, who saw the continent’s second most prestigious club competition fly to British soil.

Manchester United’s recent winning of the UEFA Europa League brings us to look at the English champions of that competition, and we find a very particular story of the «tractor boys» or «Blues».

After two seasons of regular participation, finishing among the first places in the First Division, in 1980-81 they won the UEFA Cup beating AZ Alkmaar in the final of a double match, winning 3-0 at home in the first leg, and being defeated 4-2 in the second leg, which would give them a 5-4 aggregate score and their greatest achievement.
