    Default Jack Robinson

    Ex QPR & Liverpool left back highly likely to sign tomorrow.

    Where's that come from, I thought Sheff United were hot favourites to sign him?

    Just had a browse on a QPR forum (as I don't know much about him). Injury prone, used at centre half last season, doesn't sound particularly great to be honest. I hope we are still in for Fabio and this guy is just a squad player if he comes.

    Sauce?? Only personally I'd prefer Jack The Ripper, probably less injury prone too.

    I think he's actually a decent player, or what I remeber seeing of him anyway and if he's over injury problems... He played a good few games last season.

    I'm just shocked because it seemed as though he was pretty much through the door up here at the Blades.

    71 starts and 2 sub appearances in the last 4 seasons. Not great.

    Always thought he looked a decent player, has missed lots of Football with injury though.

    Seems to have played on the left of a back 3 quite a lot as well, so he offers options and naturally left-sided CB's are very rare.

    It’s always a gamble with players who have a history of injury but he is still young and seems to have found some fitness. I wouldn’t expect him to cost very much or to be on high wages so it may be worth a punt.
    He has an excellent pedigree and I would guess that he would be playing at a higher level if not for injury.

    Looking into this a bit further, 34 of those 71 appearances were last season so perhaps the injury issues aren't as bad as I first thought. Still a risky signing though, I'd rather we looked elsewhere.

    Easily the best injury prone left back we'll have signed on a free transfer from QPR since Armand Traore

    Scouser? Nah.

    I assumed Fuentes would be the back up left back. Maybe this guy is.

    He'll suffer an injury before you can say Jack Robinson.

    2019? Not sure that Fuentes will prove to be a Mick McCarthy type player.

    Aye, you're probably right. Two left backs it is then.

    Wouldn't be too surprised to be honest.

    He's a top lad and a decent bloke. Very different from a lot of footballers, very grounded.

    For example, he's got a mate in the Marines who he puts up in his house every time he comes home. Proper decent human Osborn is. Gives his all, tries to get better all the time and he's a good technical footballer with it.

    Weirdly gets a lot of flak, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him make a move to a team who will pay him very well, he won't have to move home and there's a good chance they'll be a Prem team again in the coming seasons too.
