There should be a repeat on this morning for you to watch.


I have taped the game and I will watch it again over the weekend. If I have got it completely wrong I will come back on appologise to Worrincy.

However from where I was sat he dropped and missed high ball after high ball (even Webster saw this, which is exactly why he got so many). Yes he seems to do a lot of work, by coming in field to try take the ball up, but he does a lot of sidesways running instead of ahead. Also when he did get the break he was caught fairly easily.

I was glad we signed him, as what we saw in Sheffield last year seemed impressive and I am looking forward to the grounds firming up to see if his pace returns.

Here we go.

I got it wrong.

I have watched the game on TV and I have to say that I disagree with my view of him at the game.

Both times he missed the high ball, he was pushed off of the ball, so had little chance and you could certainly see he made good yards forward when coming in field to do some extra work, which he did plenty of.

Its strange how you get a different view when you can see it objectively without the emotion of the game.

Well done Rob, bad job Spanishbob. :BOW:

When he played for Sheffield against us, he never seemed to have any trouble taking a high kick, perhaps it's how the team around him help him.

Our wingers have always seemed to be left to 1 on 3 attackers for some reason, this has gone on for a few years now. Perhaps we need to ensure that we give him & Patterson more protection.
