Jordan Roberts-What a weird signing 08:59 - Aug 14 with 1874 viewsTRUE_BLUE123

He looked like a competition winner. Just ran around, jumped and scuffed all his shots. Of all of Hurst's signings, a player who couldn't get in to Crawley's team might be the strangest.

Dobra looked good though.
Norris also looked ok, nothing he could have done about the goals

Poll: Which of these players would you most like to see at Ipswich ?

Seemed to be someone he'd intended to sign if he'd still been at Shrewsbury and his hubris and lack of a clue made him think that Roberts would also be good for enough for a Championship side. I like Roberts, he works hard and he does keep defenders busy, but he totally lacks any quality. If not for injuries and lack of signings he'd be gone by now, and indeed if we can bring someone in up top he might well still be let go.

I have to say I'm amazed he's still here given the first chance PL had to go shot of him in January, he did.

We failed to sign how many strikers over the summer, and have a handful coming back, I bet he'll be mutualled up in January or given away to a League 2 club.

Yes, agree with you on that. Very much doubt he will be here come January should we sign another striker this window.

You can see quite clearly why he and Wilson were sat on Lincoln's bench last season.

Appreciate it was needs must with Wilson, but if he has to play any more games for us we are in trouble as he's miles off the required standard

Reminds me of years gone by when we have tried players up front who have just never looked like scoring.....

Adam Proudlock, Balint Bajner, Dean MacDonald, Daniel Karbassiyoon...the list goes on.

As others have said Roberts isn't good enough but at least he does try and put in a shift.
It also shows just how much we rely on Norwood at the moment!

Daniel Karbassiyoon was a full back.
Jordan Roberts is a limited player, but as anyone who was at Luton last night would have seen, you can't fault his work rate or effort. He also won a few headers. He's one of the typical squad fillers we've been reduced to signing in the last few years, rather like James Wilson. I hope we do get another striker in before the window closes, but I doubt it will be anyone much better than Roberts.

Yes he certainly put a shift in, couldn’t fault him on that.
Last night highlighted the need further for a back up striker and full back.
We probably would still have lost, but if we’d had better quality in these areas we’d have run them closer.

Midfield had the quality but not all he fitness plus we clearly need Skuse/Downes for balance.

His work rate might be ok, but I think he bottles out of challenging for headers and 50/50s. Norwood would have got onto the end of more balls for sure. I disagree that anyone we get in won't be better than Roberts. A big lump who puts himself about and wins headers would be much more useful.

Yep, starting with Huws and Dozzell in central midfield meant we had no bite.

Yes, we need a big lump up front & I would be quite happy if we signed Tom Elliott from Milwall, despite the huge amount of opprobrium that this attracted on here when it was first mooted, especially if he can prove his fitness.

He's still here and Harrison isn't? Head scratcher that one.

Exactly that. Put him on for 15 minutes up front late on or wide in a front three and he'll add something useful. Over 90 minutes with no support for most of it rather less so.

Difficult to disagree with the suggestion that he was someone Hurst would have taken to Shrewsbury had he stayed there.

Yesterday should have strengthened Lambert's case for another striker and a full back to be high priority.

Harrison attracted a fee, Roberts would not have done so. Harrison would have been on higher wages than Roberts. This is the reality of post-relegation austerity.

True, but we're in the market for a striker. Another instance of us getting rid without a replacement lined up?
