Roberts Close to Joining Rowe at Lincoln
Wednesday, 23rd Jan 2019 14:49
TWTD understands Jordan Roberts is close to joining League Two leaders Lincoln City on loan for the remainder of the season. Last week, the Imps re-signed Danny Rowe for the rest of the campaign with the winger netting twice on his second full debut as they won 2-0 at Yeovil on Tuesday evening.
Roberts, 25, joined the Blues in the summer on a free transfer after leaving Crawley Town at the end of last season.
The winger or striker rarely featured under Paul Hurst but was used as a number nine by Paul Lambert after he took over.
However, with Collin Quaner and Will Keane having been added to the squad during January, Roberts seems unlikely to be used in that role.
Bradford City, Plymouth Argyle and the MK Dons had previously been linked but manager Lambert said last week that moves for Roberts had broken down.
“I think there were teams wanting him and then things broke down and were back on and then broke down again, so I don’t know quite where we’re at with it,” he said.
“I think probably Jordan’s agent is talking to clubs to see what’s going on but for some reason it seems to keep breaking down.”
In total, Roberts has made six starts and six sub appearances for the Blues without scoring.

They say you learn more from failure than success. Whatever the case, surely you learn more from either than by doing nothing at all.

If you’re old enough to remember where this saying came from, you can probably remember Town playing in the third tier!
Rise and Fall by NormEmerges
Like my father, I was born and bred in Suffolk. He was a lifetime Ipswich Town supporter. But when I was a boy, back in the 1950s, like many small boys I followed clubs at the top of the old First Division.
Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.

My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
