Will Sam's Outburst Help Robbo??

Will Sam's Outburst Help Robbo??

Blackburn Rover manager Sam Allardyce launched a monstrous attack on England manager Fabio Capello on Wednesday, but what will be the consequences of this??

This attack was due to Paul Robinson being left out of Capello's World Cup Squad. Mr Mikey has covered this, and I think it is hard to disagree with what he (or Allardyce said), however, in the long run is this really going to do Robinson any favours?? Personally I'm not sure that Capello does have any personal issues with Robbo (as Allardyce said) but for whatever reason he does have he hasn't picked the Rovers goalkeeper and attacking Capello isn't going to do much to change this is it?

Allardyce has quite rightly defended his player and asked the question why Robbo has been overlooked, however, there might have been a better way to have gone about it as Robbo isn't going to find it any easier to get into the England squad in the future after this is he, particularly if the England manager does have a personal problem with Robbo (not that I think he does.) Big Sam is a passionate man so we applauded his outburst, however, when he stops to reflect about this he (and Robbo) might start to think he could have gone about it in a slightly different manor, or approach perhaps??

It is a tough one boss and I agree with you in part here. This outburst has negative effects but also positive ones! This draws attention to Robbo and how good a season he has had as well.

Sam is entitled to his opinion - I agree with the fact that I don't see this as a personal thing - but what other reasons has he got - that he trusts James and Green more due to experience? if that is the case then he should have been playing Robbo to see how good he could be again in friendlies before the World Cup squads are announced.

i don't think it would do much harm to Robbo as he has been handling this in such a gentleman fashion.

i think sam has shown the frustration robbo must be feeling. can't see how it will hurt robbo's chance- he's not getting in anyway

Robbo seemed genuinely thankful that he got the chance to play for rovers and get his confidence back up. it's a shame for me he's not going, but i'm not sure he's not terribly fussed.
