Robbie's first window challenge (with us)

Postby MKDF » Wed Feb 01, 2017 9:31 am

So the hoops have been jumped, the bars vaulted and the booms ducked. Possibly one time penalty incurred for no CB.

What are your thoughts on Robbie's first window challenge?

We kept Reeves and Baldock .. and even got some players. I'm happy.

Yeah, pretty good. As already stated, we probably could do with another defender, but over all things are looking better. January certainly isn't the best time to buy players as prices are normally inflated, I'm confident our current squad is strong enough to push for a play off spot, if not this then definitely next season.

I agree with the above.

The CB position is about risk, although with Lewie out we'd struggle to field a perfect 3-5-2 (1-1). I like the free agent message coming over too. Perhaps we'd be compromising if push comes to shove, but I get the feeling Robbie has his contingency plans.

I think the additions look very positive, though of course there are no guarantees that they'll fit. All look excellent on paper though.

8/10 from me, with a little extra because it's the January window and our budget is probably tight.

What a refreshing, calm, balanced interview from Robbie, compared with the bitter rant from our ex. manager.

The January window always seems to find clubs in a bit of a panic and they react accordingly. But that is not Robbies style and he has acted in a reassuring and confident manner, is obviously planning for the future and I am well pleased with what we have done - and haven't done regarding Baldock and Reeves.
Another CB wouldn't have gone amiss but as a certain lady recently said, "no deal is better than a bad deal." :D

Well, SG, who'd have thought you're a fake news man? :o :lol:

Being a petrolhead, I couldn't resist poking fun at the weasel words of the PSA boss expressing "willingness to develop the iconic Vauxhall brand for its faithful customers" whatever that means in reality, by quoting the amusing Sniff Petrol spoof news report from last week, which sums up their intentions rather well, imho :)
400 character limit on the BBC means I couldn't quote everything I wanted to: "Insiders say PSA is particularly attracted to the GM Europe because of the natural alignment between their current range, which used to look shit but is now more attractive and which is often sold at a discount, and the Peugeot-Citroen model line-up, which used to look shit but is now more attractive and which is often sold at a discount." ;)

"Trump to ban European cars" also made me chuckle, and the "not" adverts are worth a look too - enjoy! :D

I always wondered how France gets around EU state aid rules. Presumably through a profitable investor argument. I'd love to see the UK maintain minority interests in key industries in this country and abroad. Ideally through a sovereign wealth fund. Alas we are not so enlightened.
