Robins: Expects better

Robins: Expects better

Robson's header from eight yards looped past Murphy into the top right-hand corner to open the scoring, and although John Fleck, Franck Moussa and Leon Clarke all had good chances for Coventry, they failed to find an equaliser.

"Rubbish" was Robins' initial response.

He added: "We didn't get the performance we expected and hoped for bearing in mind what we have done over the last two-and-a-half months.

"It's difficult to pinpoint anyone who had a good contribution to make."

"That certainly wasn't what I was looking for. We lost our shape and we've got to work better than we did here.

"It was a massively bad goal to concede and it put us on the back foot from the first minute. We made too many bad decisions, but we have to take it on the chin and move on.

"We missed some gilt-edged chances and too many had an off day. I don't blame lack of effort, but no excuses, we need to produce better than that."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
