Theo: Watford never gave me a break

Theo Robinson has hit back at Watford after signing a 3 year deal with Huddersfield, suggesting that the Hornets never gave him a big break to prove his worth.

Robinson, who made only 5 substitute appearances and 1 League Cup start for the Hornets, told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner "I never got the chance I thought I should have at Watford…"

There can be no question that Theo has raw pace and a real goalscorers selfishness in front of goal but he may well have found his level at League One after a number of managers in the Hornets hotseat opted against throwing him into the hustle and bustle of Championship life.

Not that Theo is accepting that mind you. Oh no, he reckons that he should be playing regularly and "is good enough to play in the Championship level".

Hmmm seems strange then Theo that the only interest in you this summer has been from Southend, Huddersfield and Swindon - who you have done well to really wind up!!!!

Let`s face it though, the young striker, who has been accused of "shenanigans" and "greed" by the Swindon Town board, clearly divides fans opinion. There are those that think he`s too lightweight, a one trick pony and a benchwarmer at best whilst others claim his breakthrough season is only a matter of weeks away and that Watford will miss his potential.

Still, whichever way you look at it, Ł275k into the club coffers will do very nicely indeed thankyou.
