ROBINHO

Premier League Manchester City
comment on the article

i feel sorry for robinho.scored 15 goals and got 9 assists in his first season in the PL and was citys top scorer.
this season he hasnt fully recovered from injury and hasnt played much football but ppl still expect him to be brillant everytime he plays.

i think the media and far too many fans are being way to hard on him.

why would barca want him??? he never performed for madrid, and also the main players at barca's dressing room (xavi and puyol) they've adviced gualdiola not to get him because he is bad for the moral of the team.

Robinho is like a whole host of brazillian players that couldnt cut it at european level. Most of these brazillian players leave brazil aged 18,19 not for the sake of playing football at a bigger club but for the sake of the finicial state and it could improvee their lifestyles.

The main problem with most of these brazillian players they dont know how to adapt to the culture and weather in european countries which makes it harder for these players to socialise and progess to be better players. Just look at ronaldo and adriano at one time in their careers in europe they were the most feared strikers in europe but how due to personal consequnces they went back to their homeland. Same with what happened with ronaldinho alot of people said that his lost touch for the game due to personal problems relating his health and culture.

Robinho obviusoly has regretted leaving santos his home club because its evidence that his hasnt settled at any club that he has played for in europe and things just havent got his way. If city want to sell him or loan him out this would be this best option his clearly being a burden in that dressing room and causing more havoc and embrassment for players who actually want to play for city so robinho stop being a baby and just go no one is stopping you mate .

whoa i cannot believe how fickle a lot of you mancity fans are, robinho is a good player he has been for city and i think he needs time to go home and refresh his batteries he probably has some personal problems we dont know about, i remember him leaving to go home last season, and if you guys think adriano and ronaldo are done because they chose their homeland clubs over europe you must be cluless, adriano is back in top form he just wanna stay in brazil, even the great romario was home sick after a while for those of you who know who that is lmao

------------------

Are you serious? Ronaldo left Brazil at the age of 16 and had a hugely succesful career in Europe for the next 14 years, Footnaller of the year three times - and you are implying he didn't adapt and couldn't cope with the culture or the weather? Ronaldinho is enjoying the night club culture rather too much, but I 'm not sure it is so different from Brazil's.

Clearly Robinho has some problems, but to repeat (no anti-Robinho poster even acknowledges this) he was City's top scorer last season, 14 in 31 League matches, 15 in 42 total - better than Tevez for United.

Why do you have to end with an attack on him?

hang out in Brazil'? What does that mean? He is going to play for Santos.

Someone please explain the extraordinary antagonism towards this player!

Ye`r right, I feel sorry for him as well...he gets paid £70,000 a week plus his own personal sponsor deals, lives in a fantastic house,got a really nice car...His shirt is the first to be hanged up and pressed every game, he has been molly cuddled since the day he arrived..He came on the field against Everton and was quite rightly taken off again...Better known as a short sharp stick up the A-se..he scored in the FA Cup THAT WAS HIS WAKE UP CALL!! Now if he continues to play well over the next few games, he will be loaned out and probably sold to a Brazilian Club if things go well over there...not only has he made his mark over here, he a had made a bag of cash that most British players would love to earn in their lifetime..now he is heading off back to sunny Brazil...And we can all hear whats going through his head,Thank you City you big bunch of Mugs!!!

It should be an interesting game. Based on last weeks performance City are the better team going into to game but you can never write of United so I think it'll be close. I had a chuckled when I hear SAF saying "our players always behave" I'm guessing that was topped with a huge helping of sarcasm. The likes of Evans and Fletcher act like petulant kids when things aren't going their way and with Rio in the headlines this week to say any United player (or in fact 99% of the premier league) "behave" is laughable.

I just hope it remains a close contest with some good hard tackles to set the benchmark but it remains in the boundaries of a decent well fought football match. Off the pitch is another matter, there are quite clearly a large number of very sad little men looking to cause trouble………………….

-------------

And last year was City's top scorer with a pretty good rate (better than Bellamy and Tevez), this year has ben injured...

Are you complaining he doesn't care and therefore doesn't feel badly about how he plays? Or that he does feel badly but shouldn't care about how he plays because he gets paid a lot? I am baffled by this logic.
To me he looks depressed by the way everything is going, by how he is playing, and unhappy with himself. The only criticism would be that he isn't rsponding in the right way.
