Why The Hell Did City Buy Robinho?

Why The Hell Did City Buy Robinho?

Google language translator


In the summer of 2008, Manchester City paid £32.5million for Brazilian ace, Robinho, but why?

Perhaps the following video might answer a few questions.

Chelsea fans should get their tissues out, watch and then weep!

Robinho is a delight to watch and works hard even when things arnt going his way. He is the reason young boys and girls will grow up supporting Manchester City.

He was on the pitch playing football. He wasn't on fire no, but can you really expect him to be amazing in every single game? Like I said, he works hard even when things arnt going his way and he can hold his head up high even after an off day because he moves defenders out of position to double mark him and when he is given space, he will punish opposition. To be honest, I have nothing bad to say about him. He is the beginning of a new era at City, the first of the stars that will light up the sky blue sky.

I wouldnt care if he was in Brazil with Ronaldo and three transvestites after watching that video of him! When was the last time we had compilations of amazing football to upload on the internet!?

They bought Robinho so you as so called Jounos can write sensational articles like this to boost you website visits. The amazing thing is that you have become editor when you hijacked the site when Phil and me were already here and we know more about City than you have forgotten and could make this a great CREDIBLE site - unlike the mainly dross that it has become.

Have always been a huge fan of Rob's, have to admit that even when he has a fairly quiet one (still could have had two goals today!) his work rate is quite phenomenal for a forward. Don't think I've seen a forward do so much to close opponents down or track back since Goater and (Bellamy looks to be the same in this respect). Think the press often overlook Rob's overall contribution to the team which is why some fans get on his back.

GC. A touch of bitternness there and whilst you were here although your knowledge of City may be greater than the Editor, his drive and enthusiasm and input into the various topics, to spread the word regarding the site, to get City fans to discuss any City matter no matter how trivial or sensational, but dross never.Phil is still here and his contributions to the site have been excellent and I hope that will continue for a long time.
