Aye I reckon we need more Pulis style plodders with absolutely zero flair.

There’s still time!

I thought Roberts looked great when he first arrived, but when he came back after his injury with the team struggling, he looked like the only one likely to create, but was maybe trying a little too hard.

Coming back in now, without the pressure of an end of season relegation battle, I think we might just see him at his best.

You could be correct here because the last thing we want to see is a creative player who becomes far too selfish and blows away any advantage gained with some of his mazy runs. Thankfully we will have players who can keep up with him and offer support and options.

Am pleased about the news and hope to see the very best from PR

Not sure he is what we need. Does not release the ball early enough, shooting is poor, bit of a dicky dancer. We certainly need something but whether its him we shall see.

Understand what you are thinking but for me I am sure he is what we need as long as he becomes a team player essentially.

Yes we will see wasted chances from him, it is his nature but the only goal he scored for us came about becuase he could do nothing else but shoot, if we get more first time and earlier shots when he has created space then we could see a really good asset to the team

Roberts does hold the ball too long yes but that’s one of the reasons he is available to a club in our position. With his quick footwork and technique if he made the right decisions everytime he’d be starting in the premiership.

Just this once can we not expect absolute perfection from a player? Personally I’d much rather watch Roberts running at defenders than one of our current ‘forwards’ stopping at the sight of a full back and knocking it back to midfield.

Roberts is likely the best we can hope for, better than most of us imagined as most thought we’d never get him back. He will make things happen more often than not and is 100% an improvement to our team.

Getting in Roberts and Buur on loans would go a long way for me I'd like a LB/LWB after that but who knows maybe that's Warnock's plan. The overseas permanent thing we tried/still trying is interesting would that have been an option ahead of Roberts?

I think in glimpses Roberts showed incredible quality he could be the difference maker that puts us in the playoffs come May.

Can agree with this. Besides, if the lad has a good run of games in a team aiming to do something other than just survive, we might see something a bit more clinical developing over time.

Either way, what he can do when running at players is something we don't have and given how we seem to struggle to recruit anyone like this, just let him do his thing and hope for the best. Beggars can't be choosers and all that.

We’ve been after Roberts since the end of last season, but had to bide our time and hope no one else came in for him. Warnock wants him in over the international break so he’s ready to go in a couple of weeks time.

Anything on this Randell Williams?

Not sure how realistic it would be as I haven’t followed his progress but Vinagre is for sale by wolves. Potential left back?

No, not aware of anything else. Roberts was always one of our top targets though, hopefully it comes off! Guessing it must be close though now that its being reported.

He’s gone to Greece I think.

Adomah leaves forest by mutual consent 1year in to his 3yr deal.

Rumour is he off to QPR which be a nice ending for him given its club he supported growing up. Think he born and bred from that part of capital.

Doesn't change much, but he was only there on a 2 year deal.

    • Sorry but how can you argue that having premiership and guaranteed parachute payments wouldn’t be a good thing? We spent awfully after the last promotion and still got it all back through sales. Having that money would be a god send for this club, now more than ever.
    • and we'd spend about 100 million of that easily on a squad trying to stay in the prem, include wages and theres very little of the money to stay around.  following relegation we'd be almost no better off and most likely stuck in a position of trying to balance the books to avoid economic hardship like the last two times weve been relegated.
    • In hindsight warnock again was an incredible easy and safe option for gibson and one he was always going to take.  I think gibson is poor at finding managers and either deep down he knows this or just plain doesn’t like the process. Warnock is probably the best option simply because any alternative would most likely have been awful. Think about it, if woodgate was likely the only candidate after pulis then who on earth would we have ended up with if he’d said no?
    • Next season looks set to be very entertaining could end up with all 3 North East clubs in championship.  With us set to be targeting top 2 the fans back in most likely higher numbers as we been locked out of it for so long. Should be very enjoyable icing on cake be Warnock securing his 9th promotion and retiring 
    • Gareth Bale, what a player, both brilliant today.
