Chrostopher in his last email suggested that because my panel is short(T=10 
and N=9) I should't use a cluster-robust estimator. However, STATA does 
implemented onw automatically as you can see below the heading just above 
the estimation table. is there any way to disable this??

No, in FE regression, Stock and Watson have shown that the "White" robust estimator is inconsistent for T>2. One of the ways of recovering
a consistent VCE is to use cluster-robust by panel rather than straight robust (which is equivalent to cluster-robust, every observation its
own cluster). In this case if you want to robustify the VCE, you have to use cluster-by-panel. Just don't try to do two-way clustering in this
