  1. Robinson is doing fine, edging towards pretty good, but I sometimes think he gets a wee bit more praise than he is due. Absolutely correct to point out he’s brought in players that have done well and made us a good amount of cash (Moult, Kipre, etc) but I still reckon he’s made more bad signings than good. He tends to identify where we need to bolster and then signs four guys for the position in the hope that one of them turns out good. Guys like Illic, Manzinga, Sloth, etc seem to fly under the radar but there is a plethora of players he’s brought in, have been pish and have been hunted again so I wouldn’t give him too high a score in the “signings” category despite a couple of high-profile successes. Tactically, it’s spot on to suggest he now tries to play a nice brand of football, using width and pace which, when it works, is what we all want to see. However, I do think if we are trying to give a balanced appraisal of Robinson’s time with us as a whole, it would be remiss to disregard that plan A was to lump the ball up to a couple of monsters in the hope that something worked (sometimes it did, hence 2 cup finals, but very often it didn’t and was turgid to watch). I would argue plan B was Ross McCormack (no further comment required on how that went) and Hastie, Turnbull, etc, and the subsequent change in shape was a last resort, which undoubtedly worked incredibly well. In terms of in-game management, he is certainly bold, and again this has had mixed results. The St Mirren cup tie this season is a good example of this- in Paisley were winning and comfortable, he made a baffling substitution and moved O’Hara out of position with 20 minutes to go- they almost immediately equalised and we were lucky to get a replay out of it in the end. In the replay itself, he basically removed the defence and it somehow worked, albeit with a disappointing outcome I like him a lot- he speaks very well and I think he’s a fine ambassador for our club, but I do think Motherwell fans tend to see things in all black and white and due to a 3rd place finish Robbo is the messiah- I just think a bit of perspective is required at times.
  2. Likewise. Your mates are right- it is sad. But I’m sad too and can’t wait to see it! Well done so far- looks great.

    Yes, but only coincidentally.
  4. Cannae see us dropping him for the last two league games if he does that!
  5. Are you asking if I think we could get a better striker than Lee Erwin on the money we pay? Surely you can’t be, since we’ve already had loads of them...? He’s by no means the worst we’ve had, but we should certainly be aiming for better.
  6. He didn’t play much, but I remember him falling flat on his face under no pressure at all while in possession of the ball right in front of the East Stand. Rightly or wrongly, that was enough to convince me he was pish.
  7. Robinson has strongly denied the accusations, which makes me assume there can’t be CCTV footage showing him doing it, otherwise he’s been very naive. I suspect there’s not much in this story, but if he is found guilty I would have to agree with those saying he would have to go. And I’d like to think we’d be tearing up his contract rather than let him resign. However, based on the very limited information available, I believe he is innocent until proven guilty and it would be disrespectful to speculate otherwise.
  8. None of us know what would have happened but I suspect this is correct.
  9. I understand about Bosmans and freedom of contract, but this isn’t a simple free transfer. Columbus Crew are asking Oxford for £1m for him- if they decided to pay that, he’d be moving directly from us to them but the cash is going somewhere else entirely. That’s just plainly not right. I don’t blame either of the teams or the player who have all shafted us- they’re just exploiting a loophole that shouldn’t exist.
  10. I agree but that’s not the point. Even if someone pays a tenner for him, it should be our tenner.
  11. Not sure how you can say we’ve not been shafted when we developed the guy for a decade and a team whose country he has never even visited is currently holding out to be given £1m for him. That stinks.
  12. As a gesture, I’d like to see John Philliben get in before any of the Cup-winning squad.
