ROBINSON DISAPPOINTED BY WOLVES DEFEAT
Birmingham City captain Paul Robinson has claimed that he will be carrying on his role at the club despite the intense criticism that he received after the 4-2 defeat against Wolves. The loss against the table leaders largely came about as a result of Robinson conceding two penalties.
The defender was also sent off after a straight red card. This could potentially be the last season at Birmingham given that at 36 years of age he is unlikely to have his contract, which comes to an end this season, renewed. Robinson, though, has expressed confidence that he is likely to continue at the club in the same player-coach capacity.
The loss had little effect on the table for Birmingham, as they still remain comfortable away from the relegation spots - though you can now no longer bet online (Link for online betting for UK customers) on them winning the Championship. Further, they can also forget about reaching the play-off places from this position.
Yet another season of mediocrity awaits the club and this appears to have been the major cause for concern amongst the fans. Robinson, though, feels that there is no need for negativity and that people who have negative thoughts often have negative lives. He is trying to focus on the positives. Birmingham have managed just one win in the last five matches.
“I am not interested, I don’t really care about them, I am not bothered by the stick" Robinson told a betting (Link for online betting for non-UK customers) website.
"People have their opinions, that’s down to them. To me negative people have negative lives. I am a positive person, I accept my responsibilities as captain, probably it’s a little bit hard but that’s their opinion and they are welcome to their opinions. It doesn’t bother me. I have got broad shoulders. I don’t believe I am at the end of my playing days,” said Robinson amidst suggestions that he may announce his retirement if he does not get a new contract at Birmingham.
