A veteran with an impressive international background, Robinson brought experience to the Red Bulls midfield in 2010, his first year with the club. Despite missing action in the middle of the season due to a lingering knee issue, the former Welsh International provided cover and depth in central midfield, appearing in 10 matches. The club will expect the same leadership and professionalism from the Welshman in 2011.

Veterano con una trayectoria internacional impresionante, Robinson aportó su experiencia para el mediocampo de los Red Bulls en el 2010, su primer año con el club. A pesar de perderse la acción en el medio de la temporada debido a un problema de rodilla persistente, el ex internacional galés le dio cobertura y profundidad en el centro del campo, apareciendo en 10 partidos. El club espera el mismo liderazgo y profesionalismo del galés en el 2011.
