Eastlandsenders: Robinho Runs Away?

Eastlandsenders: Robinho Runs Away?

Google language translator



Guess what? It's Robinho's birthday on Sunday.

Regardless of that fact, It has been confirmed, according to the MUEN that our £32 million man Robinho has mysteriously left the squad's training camp in Tenerife.

Nobody at City can confirm where he is but Vital MC are on to the airport staff in the Canary Islands trying to find out if there is any truth in the rumour that he thought he'd go home to Brazil for his birthday party...

...You couldn't make it up, we are all going to hell in a handcart and I'll gladly pull the lever myself, etc.

But on a more seriousness note, there is never any smoke without a fire and here we are again presented with a question Mark.

Is Hughes struggling to cope with managing City's Brazilian players let alone other stars? This lends weight to the theory that he fell out with senior squad members such as Hamman and Ball and subsequently is bringing in mates like Bellamy to redress the dressing room imbalance. Should he break the bank to bring in Santa Cruz then that line of thought would be underlined.

All this is a footballing conspiracy theorists dream, but if City's hierarchy do not arrest this particular soap opera rumour situation rapidly then Mark Hughes future as City manager will come under heightened scrutiny.

As for Robinho, he will be viewed as utterly unprofessional should his walk out be confirmed as a result of a row.

More as we get it. Stay tuned if you dare!

I've been saying for a long time , to anyone who will listen, that Hughes cannot "manmanage" , we will never go forward while he is the manager.

This really does put Hughes under the spotlight. One bloke I'm working with just said imagine Bellamy wandering around the dressing room "enforcing." He is Wales' skipper.....

If this is true about Robinho, then it is an absolute disgrace. From a footballing perpective I hope there is a simple explanation and If so City need to address this ASAP. you reallly cant have players storming out of a club and dictating what goes on, this is the height of unproffessionalism. next thing is you will be buying Craig Bellamy... But I guess if its good for him.. its certainly good for the Brazilian..

On a serous note, I have always thought that Hugheswas on a hiding to nothing and would be gone at the end of the season at the latest. I simply dont think he is a big enough name or character for the club at this time, although I think he was an excellent choice for the job, pre mega money. In many ways Sven would have been far better suited to the Job today, than the man who took his job.

Robinho has always came across like he thinks he's bigger than the club. Screw him. He's under contract so he can rott for all i care.

Robinho, well we were warned about him but needed a quick signing. 4 months and already going AWOL to go to a party. He has spat in all our faces with this at a time when we needed to see some professionalism, loyalty and strength after the Kaka disappointment. We are at a critical time in the season when we need a big push and everyone pulling in the same direction and he does this. Unfortunately, we need to buy his replacement now. Let him rot in the reserves as we can afford it. No transfer to Chelsea etc, we should destroy his career just as Villareal dropped Riquelme for a season. Let it be a lesson to the rest. Only way back is if he begs publicly for forgiveness of the fans and Club. Argentinians never do this it is always Brazilians who are utterly unprofessional. Need to get rid of the rest of them as they cannot be relied upon. Prob lucky break not having one more. Maybe RMadrid were correct about him when they said he turned up to training drunk and was so unprofessional he just liked partying and women. Yes I think Hughes is inadequate as a manager but I do not see any reason to let this brat rule the roost. Had enough of this!

Fancy swapping him for Drogba ? I'm sure we'd throw in Cudicini plus £10mil as well.... C'mon boys, you know it makes sense...

GPL1905 good point.Drogba+ Cudicini + cash= Robinho.I am sure Scolari can take a good care of him just as like Mourinho was able to take care of Drogba.
