Get to know our U18s: Sammy Robinson

With our Under-18s in Croatia for a pre-season training camp, we speak to some of our City starlets to find out a little more about them. The latest is Sammy Robinson.

Q: If you had to sing an initiation song in front of your team-mates… what would it be and why?

A: I’ve never done an initiation song and I’m not sure what I’d choose because I’m into hip-hop and rap rather than singing. I’d maybe say 50 Cent ‘In the club’.

Q: If you only had 5 songs you had to listen to for eternity…

A: 50 Cent ‘In the club’, Biggy Smalls ‘I’ve got a story to tell’, Kiko ‘7 days freestyle’, MK ‘17’, Usher ‘You remind me’.

Q: What’s your signature dish…

A: I’m quite a good cook. I think I’d go simple with steak – cooked medium rare - and rice.

Q: What is the breakfast of kings? (your favourite)

A: Two slices of toast with turkey slices, beans on toast and a poached egg – but the yolk has got to be runny!

Q: Worst celebration you’ve ever done…

A: During a game the opposition manager was giving me stick and saying things to me on the touchline, so when I scored I ran straight up to him holding out my City badge!

Q: Five dinner guests…

A: Lee Mack, Kevin Hart, Sergio Ramos, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.

Q: Last Xbox/PS game you bought…

A: Fortnite.

Q: The last thing that made you cry with laughter

A: I honestly can’t think of a moment as we laugh and joke around a lot so there are too many to choose from!

Q: A film you watch over and over…

A: Wolf of Wall Street or Shawshank Redemption.

Q: A form of social media you can’t live without…

A: Instagram or maybe Snapchat.

Q: A pair of boots you can’t live without…

A: The new Adidas Predator boots.

Q: A newspaper headline you’d like to see about yourself…

A: Anything to do with my debut for England or the City first team.

Q: A hidden talent you have…

A: I don’t have one that I know about so it must still be hiding!

Q: Best on pitch moment with City?

A: Probably scoring against Real Madrid or winning the Floodlit Cup.
