Robinson in Hammers talks

First published in Sport Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

PAUL Robinson is expected to hold talks with West Ham United this afternoon, after Blackburn Rovers agreed to allow the goalkeeper to move.

The former England number one would join the Premier League outfit on a free transfer if personal terms can be agreed - with the Hammers' 24-year-old stopper Stephen Henderson set to move to Ewood.

Robinson's representatives will discuss the potential of the move this afternoon.

Iunderstand Robbo wanting to go. But why would we swap an ex Englad international for a third choice keeper who in all fairness will probably not play due to Kean and therefore strifle the development of our youth keepers! Have a word Appy!

Sorry to see him go I think he has been a good keeper for us and it's a pity he was treated badly with talk of Brad coming and being dropped for an untried reserve at the time. Had Shebby's dabs all over it. I wish him well and I bet he does ok for Sam This could turn out to be mistake by us.

Robinson was the only player I saw clapping the fans after the Wigan game and for that he has respect.

Of all the problems with Rovers performances Robinson was not one.

Still he's in good company with fellow quality, time-served pros like Neslon, Samba, Emerton and Salgado all being forced out.

Eh? Why do you have to respond so aggressively? There are more fans who appreciate Paul Robinson than don't. This site's posters don't represent the majority. I agree with Crow27. I think he has been treated badly. He was the only player who made his position clear during the Kean era. Always supported the fans whether they were chanting against Venkys or other and often gave the Darwen End thumbs up. He is also the only one who without exception applauded the fans at the end of each torturous game last season. He had to play behind a non existent defence and it's harsh to judge him on that. Mentioning an aged Friedel as a replacement must have been an insult. Good luck to him. I have a feeling that under Big Sam he will find his form again.

Robbo wasn't showing his best form this season, looked at fault for more then a few goals and the time was probably right to move on. Not too sure about getting this keeper in part ex, hopefully doesn't mean the end of kean as he's done nothing wrong. Hopefully just decent back up if required.

Once a keeper's weakness have been rumbled they become a liability. Good luck to him, but a 7 out of 10 keeper for me.

Best wishes Robbo should your move go ahead ?

Never hides and fully understands the hurt we the supporters have felt these past years. Always gave it is best shot every game for us the supporter and the club. Nothing but admiration for the guy regardless that he sometime came up short(we all have our off days) from time to time.

His shoddy treatment under the England set up at the time took a lot of self belief to come back from that and Rovers got a class keeper determined to make amends. One of Inces better buys in his otherwise disastrous tenure !

Good luck Robbo. Maybe we'll see you down at Ewood one fine day as a goalkeeping coach ?

I like Robbo a lot (could never understand why Spurs let him go) and to be fair he has been playing behind a poor defence (and a poor team) but he has been shocking for the last year or so.

He is better than what we have seen for sure - but I was disappointed he didn't produce his best for us when we really needed him to, whatever the reasons.

His stats last season in the prem were disgraceful and he didn't improve this season any. So I think its the right decision to let him go now. Every club needs three keepers - so it makes sense to bring the 24 year-old lad in from them also.

A 6/10 player this last 18mths and the right time for him to be moved on.

I can imagine big sam being besides himself with excitement at the prospect of once more using Robbo's hoof balls into the box. WTF (We're now a mid table Championship team having gone through multiple failed managers and I'm still glad he's gone!)

Good move for Robbo, why be number 2 in the Championship when you can be number 2 in the Premier ?
Even at his best he was curiously vulnerable to a shot across him, but like many I appreciated his attitude to the fans. When we were really down under Kean and all hell was loose between fans and owners, Robbo always gave us a clap and you could see he was genuinely sympathising with the fans.
More cash saved for Venkys on wages.
It must be said also that with happy defence featuring Robbo, Salgado, Nelsen, Emerton and Samba we wouldn't likely have gone down.Shame on you Venkys and Kean.

Other than the game against Burnley, Robinson hasn't performed well enough to warrant a starting place which is the reason he wanted to move on. Therefore, I find it very strange that he's going to West Ham when Jussi Jaaskelainen is one of the top performing goalkeepers in the Premier League. I expected Robinson to leave but I thought he'd go to a club where he'd be the automatic first choice keeper. As for getting Henderson in exchange, I don't understand why they would add another keeper to the wage bill when they've already got three in the squad, unless they're also thinking about cutting Sandomierski's loan short.

This is a good decision, some commenters on here make me shake my head in disbelief. Robbo is a good gk, and a good bloke. However its basic common sense, we've got another keeper who is as good and paid much less. Robbo is one of the top earners at the club. So get rid of the expensive guy we dont need, to free up wages for one of the positions we are desperately short in. FFS someone said we should keep Robinson around 'for his experience'. Get real! What a f*cking waste of money that is.

This move is an absolute no brainer for Rovers.

Of all the problems with Rovers performances Robinson was not one.

Still he's in good company with fellow quality, time-served pros like Neslon, Samba, Emerton and Salgado all being forced out.
Firstly, respect to Robbo, it was clear that he didn't like what was happening at the club but like the real 15,000 Rovers fans he stuck with it and behaved like a true professional throughout the debacle of last season, never giving less than 100%.

But it has been pretty clear that his heart hasn't been in it at all this season, he hasn't looked sharp or fit enough, so perhaps it was time for him to go, with honour.

Now lets look at the others you name;

Salgado, I agree with you, badly treated.
Emerton, didn't he say "Sorry guys but I want to go home"? but as usual played his heart out for us right to the end.

So that's two, quality pro's.

Then we have;

Samba, whinged, whined, moaned, refused to play until he was sold.
Nelson, so severely "injured" that he couldn't play for us, but played for Spurs a couple of days after his transfer and hasn't had an injury since, just finished at QPR I believe.

Quality? Yes when they wanted to be.
Time served? Well they took the money for not lifting a finger to help us get out of the mire, leaving us with Givet a sulking Frenchman who didn't want to play, Scott Dann carrying on playing despite injury and lack of fitness and an inexperienced 18 year old.

So to compare Samba and Nelsen to Salgado and Emerton simply isn't on.

Time served? Well they took the money for not lifting a finger to help us get out of the mire, leaving us with Givet a sulking Frenchman who didn't want to play, Scott Dann carrying on playing despite injury and lack of fitness and an inexperienced 18 year old.

So to compare Samba and Nelsen to Salgado and Emerton simply isn't on.
it was kean who lied about nelsen - i have just seen him on crutches, i have my doubts whether he will ever play again.....if you are looking for a perpetrator - it was fester!
get nelsen off the payroll

equally, samba was lied to by venkys/kean/arsenal stadium announcer

and who said emerton wanted to go home?......err, that was kean.
get emerton off the payroll - just like salgado

Kean lied everytime he opened his mouth - but Nelson himself told quite a few porkies about his knee and his career. He went back to NZ in January last year to get NZ specialists to look at his knee (pictures showed him on crutches) and he said at that time:

All Whites captain Ryan Nelsen is satisfied his knee injury is not career-threatening and hopes he can help keep Blackburn Rovers in the premier league and assist New Zealand at the London Olympics.

Nelsen returned to New Zealand to consult specialists on a niggling injury to his right knee which has limited him to one premier league appearance this season.

"The medical team at Blackburn have been brilliant, they are world class, but it's always good to get a second opinion from guys I know and trust. It's always good when a New Zealander sees a New Zealander.''

Nelsen said the visit had confirmed that he can expect to play again. Some Kiwi summer sunshine in Christchurch, Marlborough and Auckland has also helped him feel physically and mentally refreshed, "and hopefully I can get back and help the team.''

But he is still taking a cautious approach, saying it is too early to say when he would be able to play at premier league level.

"I played a game against Aston Villa in August when some other players weren't available. It set me back really, long term.

"I just don't want that same thing to happen again.... I want to be sure when I do come back that I won't be doing long-term damage.''

The All Whites' 2010 World Cup finals hero does not feel the injury will prematurely end his career but the 34-year-old quipped: "When you get to my age, you can't guarantee anything!''

Nelsen, 34 joined Blackburn in January 2005 on a free transfer from American Major League Soccer champions DC United. He has played over 200 games for the Lancashire club and became team captain in his first season. He is now club captain, with fellow centreback Christopher Samba taking over the team duties.

The Cantabrian, who returns to England early next week, said it had been "really painful and frustrating having to sit on the sidelines and watch'' as Blackburn struggled at the foot of the premier league table this season.

He said he hoped he "can get back and see if I can hopefully contribute to the second part of the season''. "It's been really awful not being able to help''.

One month later he was off to Spurs!

Really awful not being able to Ryan yeah.....!

I think he was a class act during most of his time at the Rovers but played the odds when the Venkys came in and it all worked out for him, good luck to the bloke.
