THEO Robinson has combined well with his former Southend United team-mate Frank Nouble on the pitch this season.

And the duo - who have teamed up for Colchester United this term - are also pairing up off the pitch for a new YouTube show called ‘The Ball Don’t Lie.’

The duo have already interviewed former Shrimpers skipper Anton Ferdinand on the show and Robinson - who is on loan at the U’s - is enjoying doing something different “It was a mutual idea really,” explained Robinson.

“We speak pretty much every day and we were talking about different ideas we could do.

“We spoke about things and then the idea for this YouTube show popped up.

“It’s had a good response so far and we just want to keep it going. "

The duo have also lined up Premier League players Tyrone Mings and James Maddison to come on the show, along with Blackburn Rovers star Bradley Dack, ex West Ham United striker Carlton Cole and football freestyler Jeremy Lynch.

But Robinson is keen to explore all areas of the game.

“We’ve got loads of players lined up to come on from the Premier League to non-league,” said Robinson.

“We’re looking at talking to staff members, managers, agents, ex players and everything really so we can all offer a different insight.”

Plans are also in place for the show to be available as a podcast and enough footage has already been included to keep the programme going, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve got stuff we’ve recorded before but obviously at the minute we haven’t really had a chance to do anything new,” said Robinson.

“We have stuff for the next two months and by then hopefully things will have changed so we can record some new stuff because we have some big names lined up to come on.

“We have friends we’ve played with and against from all the clubs we’ve been at so between us we have a good network.”

But it was with Blues where the duo first became friends.

“We’ve been friends for a while but we both signed for Southend at pretty much the same time and since then we’ve really close,” added Robinson.
