Good luck Tommy

Tommy Robson opens up on being frozen out at Sunderland and training on his own Tommy Robson has signed for Falkirk 


ROSS GREGORY Email Published: 17:31 Tuesday 19 December 2017 


Tommy Robson has revealed his frustrations at being frozen out at Sunderland after joining Scottish Championship side Falkirk. The 22-year old signed for the Bairns today on an initial six-month contract after being released from his Sunderland contract. 


Robson played in the Premier League at Watford Robson, who has already started training at The Falkirk Stadium, will officially join the the club on January 1, subject to clearance. And he says he can't wait to get playing again after being frozen out at the Academy of Light where he was forced to train on his own. He said: "It feels good, I’ve obviously known about it for a while now, but it’s just taken a while to get sorted down at Sunderland and what have you, but I’m looking forward to starting to playing football again because it’s been a while to be honest. "My last proper game was June. I’ve hardly played. A lot of friendlies but nothing competitive. 


"There were limited chances at Sunderland. And the system they are employing there is if you’re not getting a chance they’ll push the younger boy through in your place which left me in between doing nothing in no-man’s land." The left-back slipped right out of the frame at the Black Cats despite making his Premier League debut under Sam Allardyce in the last game of the 2015/16 season in a 2-2 draw at Watford. 


His hopes of securing a loan deal last season were thwarted first by the uncertain future surrounding first-team left-back Patrick van Aanholt, who eventually departed to Crystal Palace in January. Robson eventually joined Irish Premier Division side Limerick FC where he featured 17 times during a four-month loan spell but has been completely out of the picture at the Academy of Light since his return. He said: "I was hoping to make a move out and possibly to Scotland but there was the whole scenario with Patrick van Aanholt and the club wouldn’t let me leave, and he went last minute and the club brought someone in straight away and I was stuck there. "I ended up going on loan to Limerick. I enjoyed it. It was something different and what I needed. I needed first team games that’s what I still need and I really enjoyed it. "I haven’t really been training with the reserves at Sunderland for the past year – I’ve been doing my own thing for the past two months. I’ve trained on my own. "That was just the situation at the club with myself and it wasn’t ideal to be honest. I just needed out and they weren’t helping me. 


This is a massive relief and it’s a fresh start for me. "It’s not ideal for young guys coming through at Sunderland or it hasn’t been for them. The club hasn't been in an ideal place to play kids have they? But look this week, they put two kids on and one scored the winner. That speaks volumes. My taste of the Premier League was unbelievable. No-one can ever take it away from me, and that’s what the aim is now to get back to or as close to that highest level I can get to."

With the space of a few days, Sunderland's academy has had praise and criticism but is it serving its young players as well as it could?

The news of what goes on in the academy does not always make good reading

Maybe it is not all down to the Academy though.  The player(s) may have reached the level they cannot rise above - he won't be the last to be cut for no other reason than he is just not good enough.

Yes the bad academy did not stop Henderson, Pickford, Honeyman, Gooch, Asoro and Maja.
The good players we let down have moved on but not progressed, why?

In the old days of not606 many were calling for that CB Loui Laing to be promoted, and eventually the club were right for whatever reason as he was turned down by a few more clubs following a trial period.

Character defects can be overlooked in outstanding players, but giving a contract and then regretting it needs a good bit of thoughts.

Maybe because those whom wanted to play weren't offered the chance elsewhere whilst under contract to SAFC?

And I assume they are now at bigger and better clubs with a successful career showcasing their talents.

Not that I'm aware of but many ex-SAFC players do currently play in the EPL or players whom never made the 1st team earn a living in leagues below the Championship that would otherwise be unemployed.
