Robinho: The Big Ta-ra

Robinho: The Big Ta-ra



Well, that's that then. As widely predicted across Planet Blue it looks more than likely that De Souza Robinho ain't coming back to Manchester...

The record signing received a rapturous welcome on Santos' Vila Belmiro turf in Brazil as he arrived to start his loan spell from City in a helicopter accompanied by Pele, no less. Cue dancing and showboating in front of an estimated 15,000 excited fans and the subsequent quotes:

'My goal is to stay a long time. If the president wants to extend my contract to four years, that would be great. I love Santos and love to play for Santos.'

He then underlined his commitment to joining Brazil in South Africa at the World Cup this summer before adding:

'I'm not going through a good period but that's normal. I spent time injured and that affected me, but with a lot of work we're going to turn things round.'

So there you have it, a statement of intent record signing that stunned European football but didn't work out. Just like Steve Daley all over again.

I'll get me coat. We move on.

I actually think he might come back. He needs to play for the WC and he wouldn't have gotten the opportunity at City. So he's gone on loan to crappy Santos to make sure he's selected. To be honest, he might realise "*****, I'm much better off at City!" Because where would you rather be, City or Santos?

Scragg, he would much rather be at Santos. If not, why not stay and gain the glory of getting us into the Champions League? Santos is family to him, and he needs coddling unlike any player I can remember.

Hes a two faced liar. Im not suprised, his new quotes at santos today is to be expected. I pray dunga doesnt select him for the world cup and city sell him to stoke. I hope he never puts on the city shirt again.

He will do what City want him to do - don't forget who holds his registration. He can only play for Santos as long as we say so.

I know JB and i agree but he can only do what City want him to do or be frozen out of football.

He could not play away from home from day one and that was a luxury you can't afford, Bellers cost nowhere near as much and if Robi gave only half of what bellers does then he would have improved 300%. Has not wanted to be here from day one, but also can't help feeling that he would not have been any better at Chelsea, what a waste of talent.

cant see him ever realising his potential in Brazil, as how many players win the world player of the year and ply there trade in Brazil, None,they have to come to a European club if they do win it, and Robinho says things BUT does not deliver on them, so it looks like he doesn't want to win things then does it? so we move on and put his transfer down to experience, all be it a very expensive one....

Great talent let down by an immature attitude. He'll change eventually, but probably too late for us.
