I was mostly just GIF-responding to your Rip Torn quote.
But I do think he offers something we don't otherwise have. He's not a Premier League quality player by any means, he's not clinical enough but I'll also say he's had to do a lot of the work sometimes to get into the good positions he's found himself in. His best chances today haven't but generally speaking, he's worked himself into good shooting positions entirely of his own means. Just can't finish for toffee at the moment.
Mentioned before, when you have to do a lot of the work yourself, it's not entirely surprising that you don't get your head up and look for your team-mates as it wouldn't be the only time nobody is on his wave-length.
I think if Roberts had his shooting boots on, he'd have grabbed a few goals for us in the games since lockdown. But then that would be the difference between him being a good player and a great player.
Not being able to handle a team like Bristol City today isn’t what annoys me or puts us facing relegation... losing to Hull who have now had 1 win in 17 is more frustrating!
I think Reading on Tuesday is our best chance of staying up out of the 3 remaining games and even then it’s against a more footballing side we tend to struggle with.
