Rovers reject Spurs Robinson move

Spurs have allegedly made an enquiry about taking back former keeper Paul Robinson.

Harry Redknapp is supposed to have contacted the powers that be at Ewood to request the England goalkeepers' services.

He was then told in no uncertain terms to sling his hook - a smart move.

Robinson enjoyed a special relationship with the Spurs fans during his time at White Hart Lane but his form dipped alarmingly towards the end of his stay there.

Loss of form and confidence then resulted in him looking for a move elsewhere - ending up at Ewood Park in a 3.5 million move. Signed by then boss Paul Ince, Robinson has been getting steadily better and better in his Ewood Park career.

During Sam Allardyce's reign Robinson has reverted back to the slim, athletic shot stopper that made him one of the best, with Bobby Mimms' help, Robbo is back to his best, with many smart stops and commanding goalkeeping making him a firm favourite in the North West.

It is this sort of form that has prompted Allardyce and co to tell Redknapp his interest is not wanted - he has now turned his attention to David James.

Which is good news for us as in my eyes Robbo has never been this good and will be another worthy addition to the excellent group of goalkeepers that have flourised in East Lancashire. Robbo would be mad to back!

I am sure robbo enjoyed his stay at spurs but he is better off for being here now, something that I am sure Paul understands. He can only get better being here as well.

Cant see him leaving, he knows that he is on to a good thing here and the "no" sent in the direction of Spurs shows intent.

no desrespect to the player, but both parties would be stupid to make a move back to Spurs. I am delighted that he has found his form again and believe he is potentially Englands best keeper, but it was England that destroyed his confidence but this krept into his club form and there was no way he was ever going to recover staying at spurs. the move was right for everyone and he would be better served remaining at Rovers or if he wants a move to go almost anywhhere other than WHL.

Much as we loved him while he was at Spurs, there is no way he should consider coming back. I truely wish him all the best, but I don't think it would take long for his confidence to slip again if he came back to were it all went wrong. If he stays with Blackburn I expect him to get another crack at the England shirt and I for one hope he makes it his own. Robbo, England's, Englands No1

Robb has NO NEED to move on, it would be a backwards step to return to Spuds as they'd be on his back the first mistake he made and all his confidence would be drained away. I'd hope that Robbo takes notice of so many other players that have left Rovers for pastures "new and better", as they've often found the grass isn't greener haven't they!!
