'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Robbie Turning Gobby During Enforced Absence?



Another week, more Robinho quotes in circulation. This time a club called Barçelona are on the agenda again according to reports circulating in Brazil...

Alledgedly, the quicksilver but currently sidelined City striker has been interviewed by a Brazilian radio station called Bandeirantes and spoke in glowing terms of the Nou Camp giants who City defeated 0-1 on their home turf without him last August:

'I'm very happy about the interest that Barcelona have in me, playing in the Nou Camp it is much easier to be the best player in the world than at City.'

He then took the shine off that statement a little by countering:

'I'm not forcing a hypothetical exit from England and neither do I have problems with my coach.'

This is in danger of becoming increasingly tiresome. You can hear the groans along Ashton New Road already.

This correspondent won't be the only Blue today wishing that Robbie would keep his mouth shut when quizzed about Barça, or at the very least, try not to give the anti-City hacks anything to drool over in the absence of City defeats.

There is a place for you at Manchester City in the English Premier League Robbie backed by fantastic supporters. That's if you want it and are prepared to fight for it. You aren't doing us any favours giving copy out like the above. If this story is nonsense then please let's have some air cleared immediately.

Has Robbie berkishly let his mouth run away with itself again or is he really angling for a return to Spain? Give us a shout both here and in the VMC Forums..

The fella can't win. Read the articles already posted today. He is not going anywhere. A Brazilian interview does not merit a front page article. Txiki Begiristain (director of Barca football) probably does. Barca have not spoken to City since summer. No story.

Fully aware of all the previous statements and articles, Ed. The buck should stop with Sparky's recent comments. Right now, BBC, FIFA, ESPN, MEN outside of the usual trash rags are already pumping the Brazilian Radio interview out. VMC will always aim to reflect and comment upon developments surrounding Manchester City.

Robinho and Barcelona has definitely become boring and tiresome. I'd ideally like us to keep the player but more than that I'd really like to see the end of this matter one way or the other asap.

I've had enough of it. No wonder we have the Robinho denials thread.
