Playing over 200 games is one way to assert yourself as an icon at West Brom, but scoring against Aston Villa is something that could secure you legend status with the Baggies, and Paul Robinson knows both narratives well.

The former Albion defender played 234 appearances for West Brom in his six-year stint with the club as stats from Transfermarkt show, and although Robinson managed just fives goals in total during his time at the Hawthorns, the Watford academy graduate was a player who wasn’t afraid to make his presence known on the pitch with his big defensive tackles and no-nonsense attitude.

Yes

No

No

Yet on social media, it is his goal against Aston Villa in 2005 that West Brom supporters really remember, with Robinson ensuring that the points were shared that day with a last-minute equaliser for the Baggies against their city rivals, and supporters had plenty to say about that iconic goal as well as other moments from the towering defender.

Now retired, Robinson is now a coach for Birmingham City at U-23 level.
