Robinho Has Scored on Debut!

Robinho laced in a free kick at the top of the box to score for Manchester City against Chelsea. Amazing. The EPL is alight with a host of new stars, Deco over at Chelsea and Jo and Robinho with City. It will be a marvelous season in the EPL. But what a start for Robinho. He just flew back from Brazil and many said he wasn't going to start. See the goal from a fan's perspective.

Robinho is the biggest British transfer ever at $68.67 million dollars.

Here are the top 10:

£32.5m Robinho (Real Madrid to Man City)

£31m Andriy Shevchenko (Milan to Chelsea)

£30.75m Dimitar Berbatov (Tottenham to Man Utd)

£29.3m Rio Ferdinand (Leeds to Man Utd)

£28m Juan Sebastián Verón (Lazio to Man Utd)

£27m Wayne Rooney (Everton to Man Utd)
