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.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.

For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
