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."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
