Robinson Move Imminent

Robinson Move Imminent

Reports in the London press tonight suggest that Spurs goalie Paul Robinson will be a Villa player within the next 48 hours.

It is being reported that Spurs have officially accepted a £5 million bid from us for the 28 year old former England goalkeeper.

With permission it is understood that Robinson held successful preliminary discussions with O'Neill earlier this week and received a guided tour of Bodymoor Heath.

No doubt Robinson would've been impressed with the managers plans for the club, and especially our investment in the training ground.

With the signing of Gomes, Spurs have paved the way for out of favour Robinson to leave, and it is believed only the small print formalities now stand in the way after a fee was agreed.

If the move comes off it is expected that Robinson will be on around £45,000 a week and would most likely be a 4 year contract.

I hope if he does move to you, you give him the love that the majority of the attending Spurs fans still did. Will never forget the rapport the bloke has with the fans and if I had it my way we would be able to get the Robbo of 2 years ago back and not spend money on a new GK. If he signs, support him and you will have a good GK.

A lot of people on here think he's terrible.

i no players dont become bad over night but im not convinced its a confidence thing with robbo. i think he is an exception to the rule! ta very much for taking him of our hands!

matt i think that was half the problem mate. us lot singing 'englands number one' continusously gave fatty delusions of grandeur.

I really hope he does well for you guys. We all love Robbo at spurs and i for one am sad to see him go. He will become an instant favourite up there. The thing with Robbo is he needs his confidence re-built and I don't think he will ever get that back at Spurs. Will be an excellent signing for Villa and I hope you all do well next year

Well thats the thing, everyone has an opinion. Mins is he can still be a top GK if he has the right mentor and for the media to lay off him for a while. The best thing for Robbo would be for another english GK to make a couple of howlers so he's the next flavour of the month

suffered a terrible loss of confidence after the england airshot but before was a good asset for us and relationship with the fans second to none - we will all wish him well if he goes

he's a goal scorer, that s what we need a goal scoring goal keeper

Good Luck Too Robbo and To Villa, Top bloke Robbo and Villa a decent club! MON is just the bloke to get Robbo back in business!

I don't believe for one minute that it was all down to Robinson why Spurs leaked so many goals. Confidence is a factor and as a goalie it helps if you have it (confidence) in the defenders in front of you! I certainly think MON will build him up very quickly and he will return to his best form in no time. Having the likes of Lausen and Davis(when fit) will definitely help him.
