Paul “Butterfingers” Robinson to be shipped out?

The Times reports that Paul Robinson may well have played his last game for Tottenham after he was dropped in favour of Cerny for Spurs’ glorious draw with Arsenal in the Carling Cup last night. The Times’ Matt Hughes reckons that both Robinson and Defoe could be set for the chop pretty soon, Hughes writes:

“Juande Ramos’s iron fist is already making a considerable impact at Tottenham Hotspur as the head coach refused last night to offer any support to Paul Robinson and Jermain Defoe after leaving them on the bench. The England goalkeeper fears that he has played his last game for the club after being dropped for the first time in Ramos’s 17-match reign and Defoe’s future looks equally bleak after he missed an excellent chance to win the match only days after being told that he could leave.”

When asked whether or not Robinson would feature for Tottenham’s encounter with Chelsea on Saturday, he remained tight-lipped:

“All players are to be considered and I choose who I think is best for each match.There’s a long time from here to Saturday and we haven’t thought about it yet.”

So it looks like Robinson and his slippery hands could be looking for pastures new, and Sven’s Man City are said to be in the market for a bungling buffoon ‘keeper with ‘experience’.
