Robbo signs for Leeds -OFFICIAL

League One Swansea City
comment on the article

So it's done. Robbo does the (sort of) honourable thing and signs for Leeds for an extra thousand quid a week. Can't blame him for that I suppose, and I'd like to thank him for his terrific performances in a Swans shirt over the years and wish him all the best (although for irony's sake I'd have a little chuckle if he ended up stranded in L1 next season).

His Swans legend status has been seriously dented by this episode but he was still great for us. See ya Robbo.

Now hang on. I agree that he has been a great player for us. And like you I have no problem with players leaving us to make more money - it was the manner in which he held on to see what happened to Leeds before he made his decision. If the money was why he was leaving why didn't he just leave straight away as Leeds were ALWAYS going to give him more of that? Why did it take us forcing his hand and not letting him wait till after the playoff final? That's what leaves a bitter taste; not the fact that he went for money.

It isn't that he left Hackerjack,it's how he wanted to leave.To wait till after Leeds plays there playoff final to make a decision was disloyal.I would have been happy for him to say he signed right away with Leeds for double the money.Most here would probaly agree.But to wait so you can find out if your jumping ship or not to a team trying to make it to the same league competion is classless and I'm glad he was forced to leave.

Says it all really........

Seabreeze, why are you burying your head in the sand? Surely you realise that clubs like Swansea (and Leeds at the moment) will be forced to sell their better players if a decent offer comes in? Same goes for management, as we found out twice last season. It isn't a case of looking into a crystal ball, it has always been the case and is liely to carry on being so.

Of coarse smaller clubs with less money are forced to sell players,where have I said they don't.All I said from the beginning is we've lost one player on a free transfer.Who knows if Anderson will be reloaned to us,and Bodde has two years left on his contract.I warn all now if Bodde is sold,the team will be stronger when Martinez spends the money on new players.The only way for small teams to survive is money made on gems found and sold!The single biggest loss Swansea could have is Martinez,and he seems to like it with the Swans!!

Have that Robinson, enjoy League 1 next season with Leeds... Thank you Donny, done us all a favour, and a mercenary like Robinson will now end up where he belongs.

Robbo was an excellent servant for Swansea and all the best to him - but he must be sick as a a parrot today after Doncaster's win.
