Robbo Stays!

While the win over Notts County might have been a false dawn, there was at least one definite positive coming from it. Neil Roberts' unequivocal announcement that he wants to stay at The Racecourse come what may is a delight (hear it on the latest podcast at I'm wary to say it was unexpected as we all know what the club means to him, but logic suggests a player of his calibre would be reluctant to drop out of the Football League.
As I've already blogged, Roberts is my choice for Player of the Season ;his commitment is unrivalled and he offers a quality in midfield that has been sorely lacking in some of his colleagues. The Roberts-Sonner-A.N. Other partnership in the centre of the pitch could have rescued us if Sonner's fitness had held up, and if Danny Williams or Whitley had been able to contribute fully Roberts might have had another worthy partner in there.
As it is, we'll need spirit for a fight in the Conference, and there's no doubt that Roberts offers that. I might stick a bit of early cash on him as Conference Player of the Year 2009!
