Jabba's Comments

A young player who has become our first choice goalie. Paul played in the odd game in his first couple of years at the club - coming on as a half-time sub at Old Trafford and having to pick the ball out his net for his first touch (not that it was his fault...). Nige managed a 100% record in 1999-2000, so Paul didn't get a chance to show off his skills, and he was back-up at the England U-21 level as well.

In 2000-01 Robbo really came into his own. When Nige picked up an injury, Robinson came into the line up and produced some truly outstanding performances that have leapfrogged him up the queue for international honours both at U21 and eventually at full England level. His incredible shot-stopping in some of the Champions League games - notably against Barca at Elland Road - won him widespread praise, and there was little he could do to stop Rivaldo's 94th minute equaliser in a heroic rearguard action by Leeds. When Nige returned to fitness, Robbo was back on the bench, but it was clear that we've got a great keeper in the making here.

At the start of the 2002-03 season, Terry Venables was impressed by Robinson's performances on the pre-season tour - which Nigel Martyn declined to go on - and made him the starting keeper for Leeds when the season got underway. He was called into the full England squad - but didn't get a game - in the friendly against Portugal in August and finally made his full debut in the game against Australia at Upton Park.

He remained the man in possession at the back throughout 2002-03, and although he conceded 57 goals in the league, his efforts could rarely be faulted as the team fell apart. There were strong suggestions that he would move on in the summer, and although Leeds agreed a fee with Villa, the player failed to agree personal terms - and when the expected moves from Manchester United and Arsenal failed to materialise, Robbo looked set to stay at Leeds for another season. As for England, he might have missed his best chance: David James was chosen as David Seaman's successor and unless James suffers a loss of form or serious injury, Robbo's chances of being first choice for Euro 2004 now look very slim.

A further opportunity to leave the club was turned down in January 2004 when a move to Spurs was canned on deadline day over an apparent failure to agree personal terms.

Shane says: Come to VILLA!

Jay jay Rudette says: robbo is the best goalkeeper ive seen in a long time and is my favourite player. he deserves to play for england.

Ade says: Everyone needs to calm down - Leeds should NOT be selling Robbo or Kewell or any other top talents - our league performance was bad enough last season without losing our best players prior to the next one! Keep hold of these talents, Leeds, or you'll be flirting with relegation again sometime soon.

hank says: does ne1 actually know for certain if Paul is engaged?im intrigued?!...

julie says: yeh, to becky getting married next year allegely, baby on way

Hank says: baby, eh? she knows how to hook her man!...Poor Paul!He's got well and fully trapped!

julie says: a daughter, well cool, good on you mate

Amy says: Just to let u all know, Robbo is a Dad to a girl named Lucy May! Someone asked why he wasn't at the Elland Road kit launch and that was the answer!

Max Harlow says: Leeds 2-2 Swindon, 24 Sept 2003: Chilavert, Schmeichel & Poom eat your heart out! And I bet he'd do a mean free kick, given half a chance. My England line-up: James, Mills, Ferdinand, Woodgate, Bridge, Smith, Beckham, Gerrard, Sinclair, Owen, ROBINSON!!! OK, maybe not... But good on him for having the balls to risk it, and become the first Leeds keeper in history to score (excluding OGs).

leeds fan says: Last night will live with me and every other (leeds fans) for the rest of my life! Robbo ill neva 4get it u made my week thank you so much ure an amazing lad and an amzing player n i cant tell u how happy and ecstatic u made me feel last nite!!! u were absolutley amazing welldone!the atmosphere the goal and most of all YOU!!! svens mad if this doesn't sway him welldone our lad!!! its your 1st goal but i bet its not your last! thank you! marching on together!!ENGLANDS NUMBER 1!!!!!!

RoBo'S gIrL *~* says: Congratulations on becoming a dad! if shes anything like you then she will be gorgeous....that goal, well what can I saved Leeds thats for sure, now all you have to do is carry on doing it (which im sure you will) and keep on going on sunday programmes wearing tight white t-shirts and really sexy jeans!!! Take care .x.

Smithys numba 1 fan says: i woz in a reataurant an i saw robbo an his baby had bin sik all ova his trousers err

laura says: omg i just luv robbo soooooooo much since the first time i saw him!! he has improved sooo much ova the years!! and the goal agains swindon just put the icing on the cake - U R the bomb!!!! so wot if leeds R at the bottom of the prem - if u turn the table upside down we R at the top!!!!!!!!!! wahay!

Laura says: Me thinkz that Paul 'Englands no.1' Robbo Robinson is fantabulous. Wat the hell does Sven c in James. Not puttin Robbo in the numba 1 jersey is deprivin England of its talent! An England team wivout our Robbo in goals is like fish wivout chips- BAD!

Toddy says: james is crap u r god! rememba tht!

Sarah says: ha ha like da comment bout turnin da table upside down good 1 m8!

saz says: u are gorge robbo!!! ur way better than james!!! i luv robbo!!!!

Rebecca says: Dont b so harsh about David James. Robinson is still only 24 he has a lot of time to get to england no.1 James has only got a few more years left till he retires.

Max Harlow says: Just wanted to say, comiserations to Robbo on the dismissal yesterday - a penalty, a red card and a susepnsion is far too harsh for just one mis-timed tackle, and I say the rules should be changed. And if he's suspended (it would be the Old Trafford match, wouldn't it?), that means he can't play for England in the Portugal friendly. How can the FA justify so many punishments for one unfortunate mistake? It's not even like he made much contact. Bl@@dy jobsworths. Never mind, chin up, Robbo, we're all right behind you!

Nat the Leeds Girl! says: Dude! He got sent off during saturday's match against Middlesborough! I nearly pooped myself when i saw that red card come out! What the HELL are we gonna do without him! Personally i don't think that Scott Carson is quite ready to play against Man United! Oh dear god, we are soooo doomed!

andrew cochrane says: i am a newcastle united support but i am huge Paul Robinson. I am goalkeeper myself and he is my role modal as i think is one of the best young keepers britian has ever produced thanx 4 given me this oppertuinty to say how good ov a goalkeeper he is c ya l8r

Leeds lass says: Paul is getting married on 16-may-04 i fink!!! Good luck in da future Paul(wherever u may b!!) p.s. thanx 4 autograph!!!x

hayley C. says: Congratulations to Paul on getting married. I hope you're both very happy!! Oh well girls another one bites the dust!!

Leeds fan 676 says: Just a message to say i went to Paul and Rebecca's wedding, It was absolutely amazing! Lucy May looked so so cute. It was on 17th May

jenny says: Good Luck at Tottenham...Leeds won't be the same without you tho!!! :-(

lil says: leeds fan 676,did you see ian harte at the wedding? what was he wearing. i bet he looked dead fine. i saw pix of paul he looked gorge in his suit

Ryan Tomes says: paul robinson is the best goalkeeper ive ever seen accept of course for David james who is my favorite

paul hebden says: i saw robbo in york centre over the may day bank holiday and asked him to his face are you off to spurs and he said no lying sod hope spurs get relegated leeds shd have stuck with martyn they might not have got relegated
