I've watched him a few times now and I think he flatters to deceive.

I appreciate he's young and still learning the game, but is he really that good?
 
'Flatters to deceive' is a very apt description.

Should have been a GREAT player by now. I think the high profile transfer to Real Madrid came too early for him.

Probably doesnt feel the need to be as consistent as he should?
 
He is a quality player when on song BUT the problem is he as you aptly say flatters to deceive most of the time

I think Oxy is right that the move to Real Madrid came too soon - would have been wiser going to the portuguese or dutch league
 
He is good. If he were a player for say, I don't know, Uruguay, he would have been a great player for them.
The fact that he is:
Young
Plays for the best team
Has had the likes of Ronaldo, Pele, Rivaldo etc. perform brilliantly if not way better than him at the same age or younger.

That gets to him.
He is good, but a bit overrated as well.

I personally don't see the point of him..another weak, flashy player who would have a blues clue what to do if a 6-2 15 stone defender crossed his path.
 
Early in his career, he was one trick pony and totally relied on being left footed. Lesss successful in his 2nd season.
Diego was rated better- - albeit different style altogether.

not sure about now...not really watched real madrid this season.

Give me Diego over Robinho any day of the week :11:
 
Robinho has fallen down the pecking oprder.

At a time when he should be picking up plaudits at Real Madrid - some old codger called Beckham has been getting the rave reviews - Robinho nowhere to be seen.

Maybe another move needed to a lower profile club to kick start his career.

What??? Beckham has been awesome recently. Besides, Beckham is a girl, has had his lows, and is cheesy, but all that makes me say; What a player!

I will never say that for an unoriginal player like Robinho
 
Robinho playing for real madrid is limited, weak, plays strictly on the left wing and very inconsistent. For Brazil tho hes some player. Gets more of a free role, defenders are bamboozeld by his pace and trickery. Good with either left foot or right foot. To get the best out of Robinho he has to be the focal point of the team, hes brilliant when given responsibility. At real madrid more experienced players like ruud, raul and guti are stronger characters.
 
Brazilian footballer Robinho has lost his final appeal against a conviction for taking part in the gang rape of a woman in Milan in 2013.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court in Rome upheld a previous ruling sentencing the 37-year-old to nine years in jail.

In 2017, Robinho and five other Brazilians were found guilty of assaulting a 22-year-old Albanian woman in a nightclub.

The sentence was previously upheld in December 2020 following an appeal.

Robinho is unlikely to serve his sentence as he is in Brazil and the Brazilian constitution bans the extradition of its citizens, although Italy can request that he serves his sentence in the South American country.

Robinho, capped 100 times by Brazil, started his career at Santos before moving to Real Madrid in 2005, where he won two La Liga titles in four seasons.

In 2008, he joined Manchester City for £32.5m, then a British record fee, but he was loaned back to Santos in January 2010 after struggling to make an impact in England.

He won Serie A during his subsequent spell at AC Milan, but returned to Santos for another loan spell in August 2014 before joining Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande in July 2015.

When his sixth-month deal expired, he moved back to Brazil, joining Atletico Mineiro on a two-year deal and had spells at two Turkish clubs before returning to Santos in October 2020 on a five-month contract.

However, after his signing was met with criticism, the Brazilian club suspended his contract "in order for the player to concentrate exclusively on his defence in the ongoing case in Italy".
