The commission, by the local supporters club, came from an idea by local fan Seán Salter. The siting of the statue, around the corner from his successor, Sir Bobby Robson, reflects their strained relationship, although Sir Bobby later declared that Alf was the greatest British football manager ever. The rather dour pose catches the forbidding character of a manager famous for enforcing a strict regime with his players.
