Here is the top 10…

Hasselbaink, Middlesbrough home, August 20: A typical Hasselbaink effort, a fizzing, low free-kick from 25 yards that sailed through bodies in the area but Robbo managed to get down low to his left to parry out with one hand.

Ferguson, Everton home, October 15: McFadden swung in corner from right met by Ferguson’s powerful header unmarked six yards out, Robbo stunning reactions to tip over.

Sheringham, West Ham home, November 20: Etherington’s corner from the right missed a clutch of players at the near post and bounced in front of Sheringham, six yards out. The Spurs legend managed to fashion a volley towards goal but Robbo produced superb reactions in a split second to tip over.

Taylor, Portsmouth home, December 12: Taylor timed his run perfectly to connect with a cutback from the edge of the area and aimed his shot to the top right corner, Robbo is travelling in the wrong direction but managed to arc back towards the ball and tip it over.

Yakubu, Middlesbrough away, December 18: Fantastic reflexes to tip over Yakubu’s header from six yards from Morrison’s cross.

Jarosik, Birmingham home, December 26: Another reaction stop as Pennant drilled in low cross from left, Jirosek slid in at near post and got slightest of touches to deflect towards goal, Robbo alert and fingertipped ball around the post.

Bentley, Blackburn home, March 5: Best save from a shot from distance, Bentley took quick free-kick from Savage, carried a couple of yards and unleashed drive from 30 yards that was heading into top corner until Robbo, at full stretch, managed to fingertip over diving to his left.

Drogba, Chelsea away, March 11: Included in BBC Match of the Day’s ‘Save of the Season’, a reaction save from close range as Robbo dived to his left and the slightest of touches diverted the ball onto the post and to safety.

Ramage, Newcastle away, April 1: Shearer clipped in cross from the right met on the full by Ramage with a downward header eight yards out, Robbo reaction save low to his left to palm out.

Reyes, Arsenal away, April 22: With us 1-0 up, Henry darted down the right and crossed to the edge of the area where Reyes hit an instinctive volley, Robbo is moving from left to right but managed to get down to his left to palm the ball away.
