'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Robert On The Slide

Laurent Robert is on the rocky road to ending his career on a slide, having been dumped by Portsmouth and Benfica after leaving Newcastle United.



Following a bust up with Graeme Souness, that was predictable as the Jock arrived at St James' Park like a gunslinger gunning for trouble, Robert was shown the door and is now playing for Levante in La Liga.

Talking to the Chronicle, Robert said: ' When I think of my time at Newcastle United I can think of only one word. Fantastic. I really loved my time there as I enjoyed English football and I would love to come back if Mr Shepherd would have me.

'There was only one reason why I left Newcastle and that was Graeme Souness. I do not know Glenn Roeder but I have talked to some of my former team-mates at St James' Park like Olivier Bernard and he says he is a good manager to work for.'

Robert is not uprooting any trees at the moment and it is thought he could be released in January on a free transfer.

Don't even sign him and loan him out.

he was a great player on his day but they were few and far between, he didn't even have a period where he was on top form it was the odd day he produced pieces of magic, he also doesn't care much for defensive work, which also asks the question, where is olivier bernard and why hasnt he played yet
