Red Bull New York announced today that it has acquired former Welsh National Team midfielder Carl Robinson from Toronto FC in exchange for a fourth round selection in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft.  Robinson will be added to New York’s roster pending P-1 visa approval.  Robinson, 33, played for Toronto FC in regular season play 74 times in the past three years – mostly as a defensive midfielder. Last season, Robinson notched two assists in 21 games, 20 of which were starts. Prior to coming to MLS, Robinson played for a number of English Championship clubs. In 2002, Robinson joined Portsmouth, playing 15 games, before being loaned out to Sheffield Wednesday and Walsall.

    I hate how exchanges of players between teams work in MLS. It’s always a trade. That doesn’t happen in all the other leagues. Allocation money is almost nothing. Toronto only got a 4th round draft pick for Carl? What a joke. Im sorry but (expletive deleted) tfc. This season is going to be terrible for them.

    I really like this move he wil be so good for a guy like Tchoni GREAT MOVE !!!!!

    • Oh_yeah Says:

      I agree with you about this move. It will be good for Tchani. He will learn from one of the best in this league. I think that f/o was thinking of Tchani when they made this move. Good pick up.

    If the league had normal rules they wouldnt have received anything as they didnt want Robinson. I hope we get an attacking midfielder, this team is desperate for another attacking player.

  4. Alle Says:

    It’s not a bad signing, but we don’t need him. We have guys like Tchani and Stammler already. We would’ve been better off getting a young attacking midfielder or striker that TFC didn’t want.

    its a good move to get another def mid. now we have 3 solid guys

    last year we used Stammler, Celades, and Sassano at DM at various times and sometimes we used 2 of them at once.

    now we have Stammler, Tchani, and Robbo making Sassano available to fill in at RB or DM as needed

    we do still need an attacking mid or we could play 2 holding mids and 2 attacking wingers

    this does make sense if you think about it.

    hopefully we will still GET AGUDELO SIGNED UP SOON
    oh sorry, am i yelling?

  6. emilio Says:

    Tchaani isnt ready he is still very raw, and he needs to bulk up a bit.

  7. Oh_yeah Says:

    This was a good move by the front office. Robbo is a solid addition to the team. Now, we must sign Agudelo.

    good pick up great teacher for tchani but don’t the team already have plenty of DM’s? the back line still not set need another CB to step up (too many players coming back from injuries) the RB position not set and i think they should give the young guys a chance to fight for the AM job and wait on the next move maybe another forward or winger. i also think the red bulls should look for more talent in central america good players not to expensive and the’ll more the capable to perform here in the state intead of bringing old european players on their last legs. aja yes it’s me the dude from NY…..

  9. Cindy Says:

    welcome to the team Carl!

  10. emilio Says:

    Lindpere is 28 he isnt an old dude from Europe.

  11. soccer lou Says:

    ok lindpere is 28 in soccer years not old at all and yes you’r right but did you or anybody knew who he was or where did he play? come on now he’s been a good adition to the team so far does backe likes him? hey they sign him up alredy but remember first year in the league and even on his former team he was not the best player so let’s wait and see all i’m saying is let’s get the team younger not older if he was that good the team wouldn’t be loooking for another midfielder i think he’s filling the spot that Dave van den Bergh left when he went to dallas.
