Vancouver Whitecaps' Robson thrilled to have made MLS move

Barry Robson says he has absolutely no regrets about making the move from England to Canada.

The 33-year old Scottish midfielder departed Championship outfit Middlesbrough to officially join Vancouver Whitecaps at the start of July and is already loving life in his new home.

Robson, who has made four appearances for the Whitecaps, feels the standard of North America's top flight is 'great' and is enjoying being part of an ever-improving competition.

"It's a good quality league. Everybody is fit and all the stadiums I've played in have been packed," said Robson who is worried about the state of football in his homeland of Scotland.

"It's warm, the pitches are all great and it's been a good start for me.

"I have no regrets about making the move. It was a big decision but I'm playing at a great standard.

"There are top players over here. There are the likes of David Beckham and Robbie Keane, but you also have some top Mexicans and South Americans.

"It was the right time to move out here. I had a few years in the Championship and the SPL, which is in chaos just now.

"It's strange to see the league in a shambolic state like that. Hopefully it's sorted soon."
