How long before Robinson gets the sack too ?
Defeat at Millwall is never a surprise and sadly, it was even less so under our media luvvie manager.
I had a wry smile yesterday when in one of his many interviews Robinson expressed the view that talk is cheap and action on the pitch is what is needed. I didn't view this as a road to Damascus moment for Karl. Old habits die hard and this leopard won't have changed his spots.
Aside from that we didn't see any action or result on the pitch of note tonight. This set of players and indeed the manager to be fair aren't alone in expressing their understanding of the importance of this game only going on the succumb all too easily.
You have to feel for all those Addicks that went tonight. Never a nice place to go and given the re-arrangement of the game at this time of year an extra effort was needed. Sadly that wasn't matched by the players.
However, the typical Millwall defeat, whilst always hard to take, can usually be forgotten as the next game offers a chance of redemption. Sadly given Robinson's impact to date none of the upcoming games offers any such hope.
As ever post-match and shooting from the hip the manager says he's going to sit down with every players and demand the truth........whatever that means !
Now apparently there are certain aspects of this club that he's not happy with. Please enlighten us Karl ? Perhaps it is the massive management team or perhaps the massive PR team. I'd love to know.
The players are rightly getting stick ( the defending was awful ) but one wonders what has happened since Nugent handed over to Robinson. In these last two games it's been dire. Have the players lost all faith in him already ?
Of course the malaise goes well beyond this squad and manager and as we know it won't disappear until Roly and co leave. It does however, get worse every time you don't believe it possibly can.
I don't believe the arrival of Barker and the probable departure of Nugent is about to make matters any better. Someone ought to lock The Valley gates and stop Kevin leaving the building - it might just be our only hope !
God help me I'm going to the Boxing Day game and in the meantime I'm going to try and enjoy Christmas. I suspect there'll be a collective wish as we pull the wishbones on Christmas Day and we'll only know if it's worked when Roly has packed his bags !
