Robins Is Not Thinking About Play-Offs...Or Is He?

Barnsley manager Mark Robins has said that he is not thinking about the Play-Offs, depsite the Reds climbing to 9th in the table, the highest they've been since the first day of the season.

Confidence is high at Barnsley thanks to some great results in the league, but Robins is remaining grounded. He told Barnsley Player, 'I'm not looking at anything but Middlesbrough on Tuesday.' but he was drawn on being pleased with the Reds' league position, commenting that 'it's a lot better than what it was when I took over.'

Barnsley are currently 9th in the table and withing striking distance of the Play-Off positions. They face Middlesbrough tomorrow night at the Riverside who are one point and one place behind them.

So is Robins thinking about the Play-Offs? I should hope so. If he's not thinking about promotion he's not the right man for the job. And not just the Barnsley job, but any football manager's job. If you're not interested in progressing to the highest level possible, you shouldn't be in football at all. Who ever desired mediocrity?

He'll tell the media he's not looking at the Play-Offs because he doesn't want to seem over-confident. He doesn't want to raise fans' expectations in case they aren't fulfilled. He doesn't want to put too much pressure on his squad. But deep down is he thinking about the Play-Offs? Of course he is! Right?
