Harte was a defender, and we believed a stop-gap to bring some maturity into the defence.

Elwood, defensive midfield

But JR is already 33, and the position is STRIKER, requiring
running and stuff.... hardly sounds like a long-term thing

Yeah because at left back and central midfield running isn't really involved is it?

I would say being in midfield and defence required more running than being a striker......

NR_Royal With regard to the negativity about Roberts, have people forgotten the original reactions to the signings of Leigertwood, Griffin and Harte? They've mostly been very good signings so I'd trust McDermott with this one.


I was happy with the signings of Griffin and Harte personally, though wasn't sure about Leigertwood.


Typical of the racist attitude among hobnobbers.

I think the key point is that Griff and Legs were about 4/5 years younger when they signed for us, so they're a cretinous comparison to Roberts. Harte was obviously just a stop gap which has worked out very well. And his biggest weakness is that he can't run around. He is at least a decent comparison though.

Our system requires our strikers to run the channels and harry the defence, so I'd say they get through a shit load of running and need to be able to do it plenty.

Comes from the man too much of a daft racist to learn how to pronounce Leigertwood properly so calls him the cringeworthy Elwood.

I would welcome Roberts here btw...

Darius Henderson is 30 and has 15 goals in 21 games, Kenny Miller is 32 and has 9 in 25 and Kevin Phillips is 38 and has 8 in 24 (11 of those games on the bench).

I believe the best of our young bucks has 6.

If a player looks after himself Age is just a number.. Didint Sheringham play at a top level untill he was 40 Giggs is older than Roberts is he not?

I think this could be a good move strong centre forward who knows where the goal is . 33 is far from over the hill

i honestly could not think of a better signing with the lack of players available, and would compliment Le Fondre or Hunt perfectly.
