Derby County ... Be Warned ... Robert Is Trouble!

Derby have invited the former Newcastle winger for a trial after the troubled French striker left Spanish side Levante ... after once again giving the manager a headache.

Ipswich had shown an interest in the Frenchman, but now Derby are set to offer him the chance to win a move to Pride Park.

Paul Jewell: "Yes, he is coming in on Friday to train with us so that we can have a look at him and see how he looks.

"We are trying to bring in four or five, if not more new faces to help the group.

"He [Robert] is going to train with us for a couple of days to see what condition he is in and see if he is right for us and right for him."

Robert infuriated Robson by telling the world the "inside" story from St James' Park - warts and all - on his website.

And how can we forget when he stormed out of the Stadium of Light when he was dropped for a Tyne/Wear derby. He walked straight into a group of Mackems waiting outside, then made a U-turn and went back into the dressing room saying he had changed his mind.
