Robinson Keen On Villa Move

Robinson Keen On Villa Move

Ok this is probably more speculation as there are no direct quotes but 'sources close to the player' have said he is making all the right noises.

I'm not sure what noises he is making, groans of ecstasy maybe or maybe he's running around White Hart Lane shouting 'I'm a goalkeeper get me out of here'. I really don't know.

So please don't ask - but apparently he's making them.

The Evening Mail have carried a story based on sources 'from London' who claim he is ready to tell Martin O'Neill to come and get him.

Robinson has been rumoured to be a long term target for O'Neill but interest was ramped up a gear or two over the last 24-48 hours. A meeting is planned between manager and player BUT has yet to be finalised as O'Neill has other potential deals to juggle.

The meeting also needs the official go ahead from Spurs, which if given would imply we could sign Robinson for a snip at around £5 million.

IF and it would be if, he can regain his form, confidence and return to the type of performances that made his name at Leeds and Spurs in the early years, it could quite easily be the signing of the season.

Hasn't this already been front paged? Robinson ain't good enough we need Boruc, basically.

Was never a bad goalkeeper imo. Made a few mistakes, had a dip in form just like every other goal keeper out there. Worth a punt at 5mil, and def can't be worse than carson.

Robbo is a local hero in my home town and well liked but all who know him, a nice lad and good keeper, get him signed. Boruc - £15mil, Carson £10mil and Robbo £5mil. Give me Robbo, and get that Guzan we keep hearing about!!

I agree, lets look at our goalkeepers over the last few seasons....ok done that, now we know Robinson might have a confidence crisis but he'll look at our goalkeepers too and think, well sod it i've not got much to live up too, so the pressure is off, plus add MONs ability to bring the best out of players i think it is a right bargain.... I used to play in goal, and its hard if you constantly have the pressure of messing up, cuz you are thinking, "don't mess this up" rather than oh thats where the ball is.... If we do get him, i hope we all get behind him and get his career back on track and not have the doubters like we did when we signed the Hare...

All you Boruc fans, did you watch his games for Celtic this season? He made only slightly less howlers than Robinson, but the Bhoys still love him? Go figure

Boruc is not all that and a bag of chips. I doubt he would leave the comfortable nest of the SPL anyway (why leave when there is a guarantee of European football and a 50% chance you'll be league champs every season?). Get Robbo-good deal at 5 mil. He's got something to prove-get him.
