Robinson Will Get To Championship With Leeds

Flynn – who signed Robinson for Swansea back in 2003 – admits he wasn't surprised by his decision to move to Leeds but is shocked by the abuse that has been aimed at Robinson following the decision.

Robinson has become the subject of severe criticism and personal abuse following the contract negotiations which – according to the club – started way back last October.  

Robinson had to sit and watch as his new team mates missed out on promotion on Sunday with a 1-0 play off defeat to Doncaster consigning both them and the former Swans player to another season in League One.  But that in itself doesn't lead Flynn to believe that it is a mistake to make the move North and he firmly believes Leeds to get promotion next season.

Speaking in the Western Mail, Flynn said “The move will seem like a mistake to a lot of people now

“But, in all honesty, only Andy knows whether it is true or not. It might look like Andy has made the wrong decision but you never know what will happen. People said the same when Lee Trundle left Wrexham for Swansea but look how that worked out.”

He continued: “Leeds will get promoted next year anyway. You can see them being clear by Christmas.

“Andy is a good player and he has gone to a fantastic club. He made the decision knowing Leeds might stay in League One so he is obviously confident they will get him where he wants to be sooner or later.

“He will play Championship football in the end. He has got quality written all over him and it won’t be long.

“Fans don’t want to lose good players so you can see where they are coming from,” he said. “But you have to remember what Andy did for the club.

“Swansea didn’t pay a penny for him and got five years of fantastic service in return. In the years to come I’m sure fans will just remember what he did for the club and focus on that instead.”
