Defending The Indefensible

Defending The Indefensible

West Brom assistant manager Mark Venus has spoken out in defence of The Baggies much maligned defender Paul Robinson following criticism of his challenge on Wolves wing wonder Michael Kightly during the black country derby.

Venus, a former Wolves player said :

'Paul is a man who has a bit of history of making challenges. He is probably labelled a little bit. Some of them are not as bad as they appear.

'Paul gives everything he has got and He is a hard-working, honest man. If that tackle on Michael Kightly had not been by Paul, it would not have been mentioned.

'He is a damn good player. He has been good for us and he is the best player in the league in that position.'

Steve Bruce was present for the game, and expressed his astonishment that Robinson went unpunished, and a free kick awarded to Albion following Robinsons viscious kick to Kightly's leg that left him needing treatment.

Perhaps the reason no one would've have commented had it been the other way round Mark, is the fact so many other players have Robinsons stud marks down their legs.

Should have been red carded for kicking our Kights! He's nothing more than a thug.
