Robert Does It Again

Never far from controversy in his career, doesn't seem anything has changed either.

Robert is on a season long loan with Portsmouth, and has been told he will not be allowed to return to Newcastle early following what appears to be his latest strop-despite the fact Newcastle didn't want him anyway.

He returned to Newcastle last weekend to watch the Tyne Wear derby against Sunderland, and after being told he would be warming the bench the tempermental Frenchman suddenly developed a hamstring problem and requested he sit out the game.

Perrin was then forced to enter the match with just four substitutes after Diao failed a late fitness test, and was obviously non too pleased with Robert's antics.

The 30 year old was fined two weeks wages, believed to be around 50000 (obscene isn't it!) and forced to issue an apology to Perrin, the Chairman and the fans.

The Frenchman is running out of friends quickly, Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd has put a block on any return for the player after he burned his Newcastle bridges last season.

'When Portsmouth signed Robert from us it was on a permanent loan deal until the end of the current season, and a deal which will see him stay there after that is all done and dusted as far as we are concerned.

'I don't know what arrangement Robert has with Portsmouth, but it has nothing to do with us and all I can categorically say is that he will not be returning to Newcastle United.'
