5 -1 I know many of you knock Robins, However at least we a more difficult task on our travels. Its all good playing the right way however if you are against a superior team you often have to change the game plan to suit (Barca vs Chelsea)! You should make your team hard to beat before looking at your attacking options. If you dont concede then you will not lose!

I have to agree. I was not a Robins fan at all as I thought he was too negative with the players he had available to him. However we were a lot more difficult to beat. We've been poor away for a long time now under many managers. I don't think our record of picking points up away under Robins was any better but we probably had fewer big defeats like this one. I do like Hill and the way he tries to play the game but the away form/performances need sorting out. We do have a lot of injuries but 5 - 1 is hard to take against anyone. I still think we need another centre back who has Championship/Premier league experience to come in and organise the defence. A few just aren't up to it at this level. I'm far from impressed with what I've seen of Goldbourne and I hate to say it but I think Hassell's best days are way behind him.
