Ex-Toon Striker Moves On ... Again!

Anyone remember former Magpies striker Paul Robinson?  He has signed for Torquay United.
If Alan Shearer had trouble with Mr Whittle at Grimsby last week, he suffered quite a bit of grief from his OWN team-mate back in 2000. Not only did Ruud Gullit drop Shearer to play Robinson in the infamous Mackem match that ended up being Gullit's last on Tyneside, but when United beat Sheff Wed 8-0 Robinson tried to take the ball off the Golden Boy for a penalty. The youngster had the balls to say to the England skipper: "You've scored enough, give me a chance".
The 26 year-old was sold to Wimbledon soon after for £1.5m move, but it has been downhill for him ever since, playing for almost as many clubs as John Burridge.
He has played for Darlington, Newcastle, Wimbledon, Burnley, Hull City, Dundee United, Grimsby, Carlisle, Blackpool, Hartlepool, York City, St.Johnstone, Ross County, Aberdeen, and Whitley Bay.
