Robinho

I read that Robinho would consider a switch to a Turkish side, but he's a world class player so why don't we go for him?! He's just the player we need imo, and we could probably get him cheap so I personally don't see why not.

Its really not as terrible as most people on this board say the idea is. Most people on here are still bitter that he didn't come here a couple years ago. The truth is, yes he has had some attitude problems, but he is a HUGE, HUGE upgrade over somebody like Kalou. He would take that right side and probably play pretty well there. I would say it is a good idea IF we could get him for cheap. It all depends on the price.

Its nothing to do with bitterness over him not coming, its more to do with him being utter sh*te in pretty much every away game for City. He only really shone in about half a dozen games while at city, and even though i dont rate Kalou i would rather keep him than sign robinho, and there is no way we would get him on the cheap.

You would be crazy to say that you would rather have Kalou than Robinho. 15 goals in 08/09 with Real Madrid. 18 goals in his first season with City. They are not Drobga numbers but they are good numbers. He obviously is a good player. Put him in the right situation and he would act and play the way he can. Look at him for the National team. He is very succussful because he is in a good situation. I am not saying signing him is a must, but if Chelsea would sign him, I think they are the kind of club that can provide that situation. There is stability here that cannot be found at a place like City. City seems like a club that is just going through the motions, but not doing anything.

Robinho suited them very well then because thats what he was like. Theres more to signing a player than how good they are, and his attitude stinks.

ok so by your thinking, putting a player that sometimes has a bad attitude on a team with a reputation of of that will help the player? Are you kidding? If you put a player with a bad attitude on a team that doesn't stand for that stuff would help him more. Somebody like Carlo would put him in his place and may help him. He would see that if he has a good attitude he is morel likely to help a team win trophies. Look at Drogba. Lots of people say the same things about him. He has grown up and become a more mature person here at Chelsea. Teams like Chelsea, and managers like Carlo can do that to people. Teams like City allow the bad behavior.

How would you know what most people on here think of Robinho and the idea of signing him? You weren't on here a couple of years ago so have no idea who wanted him and who didn't. So often when people mention Robinho the first bit of criticism aimed at him is responded to with accusations of bitterness when the truth is that there were plenty of people who didn't want us to sign him last time and reserve the right to not want us to sign him now without being accused of their opinion being cheaply made.

I am one of those who didn't want Robinho (and I certainly wasn't alone on here) and I wouldn't want him now either. It isn't just about his all round attitude but also his inconsistency and his lack of effort when he decides to have a day admiring the view (or when he has to get on a coach to get to a game).

Oh boy, loz says he doesn't want a player so that means everybody should agree with him. Just because you have millions of posts doesn't make you right all the time. Also, just because I wasn't on this board a couple years ago, it doesn't mean that I don't know what I am talking about. But it is true, I wasn't on here two years ago but in my short time on this board I have already figured out that you seem to act like you own this board and you don't consider other peoples' opinions.

if i can just butt in here. i wasn't a member of this site two years ago, but i have been a Chelsea fan for a lot longer than that. i didn't want us to sign Robinho then, and i don't want us to sign him now. i also know a lot of older Chelsea fans, also not members of this site, who felt exactly the same way.

there were of course, plenty of Chelsea fans who felt differently, who were well gutted when he signed for City, but have since changed their minds about this, and are now relieved that we didn't sign Robinho after all. however, i don't know of anyone who didn't want us to sign him back then who either now wishes we had signed him, or thinks it would be a good idea to make another attempt to sign him.

i'm just saying.

Be cool.

Loz is entitled to his opinion, as does everyone else here. Don't be thick and start condemning others for not seeing YOUR POV.

I desperately wanted him the last time round, had not seen much of him play but heard great things and seen great highlights. After seeing him at Citeh for the last 1 and a half seasons I have seen the moment of magic he can bring to a match, that spark of creativity that he is capable of such as that chip against arsenal in the 08/09 campaign. However as DKW said earlier in the thread his inconsistency and failure to perform away from home is a fatal flaw, its not a characteristic that you want in a player in a trophy challenging team. Maybe if he did come to us the winning mentality that our club has would turn him into a world class player. However I would much prefer us to complete the cheaper signing of benayoun who is a very humble individual (granted still inconsistent) and more than happy with a bench role in the team.

Do you actually read posts before you start responding? I am the one saying that people had different opinions, you are the one making uninformed judgements on the reason why people don't share your opinion. People have a different opinion from you and you tell them it is because they are bitter over something that happened, something you have no idea if they every wanted or not. I point out that some people didn't want him the first time either so why would they be bitter now, i.e. some people don't share your opinion.

Tell me exactly where this is me saying I am right and you are wrong and tell me how I am not considering other people's opinions, I'm not the one making rash assumptions for the reason for people's opinion. I didn't say you don't what you are talking about because you weren't here two years ago, I said you don't know what people on the board were saying two years ago because you weren't here - masive difference.

It's all been said about Robinho before. Great talent, exceptional on his day, but a luxury player with a terrible attitude so no thanks.

That said, if I had the choice of signing Robinho or Benayoun..........................

I was actually one of the one's that did want hime last time around, but thank f*** i am not a manager as i think his attitude stinks and this time around would not touch him with a barge pole.

I don't actually think he ever did want to play for City though, but it was the only option available to him for him to get out of Madrid, this maybe a reason why his attitude was so bad but still no excuse IMHO.

Put Drogba in City's team. Do you think his attitude would be great? He would've reacted similar to Robinho who was used to the glamor of Madrid. Robinho is a world-class player. He can't play in average teams like City. All season long there was one weakness that was highlighted in Chelsea's team, and that was we had no flair players. Robinho has pace, flair creativity and is one of those players who can change games and that is exactly what we need. I'm just waiting for him to have an outstanding world cup.
