I think we have to wait personally on Robinson and Watford lad. Is Kidsgrove really a yardstick? 

What I call improvers, time is the judge.

He only played the first 45 and did nowt wrong. The centre back trialist looked decent. 

What position did he play Jean? RWB or RCB?

My memory of it is blurred by alcohol but I think he played in the centre of the 3.  We had a young lad at RCB and Robinson at RWB.  Jones was LCB.  Robinson was OK.  The pitch was a bit too dry (© Ben Garner) for slick football.  The young lads second half look very technical but no physicality, a bit like watching the Prem U23’s in the Mickey Mouse Cup.

Pretty much in the middle.

How unfit can professional footballers get in 4-5 weeks? We stopped playing a month after the rest of L1 so we should be up to back speed far quicker. 

I agree - they had 3 weeks longer to prepare for and then play high-stress games. Means they ought not be as far from fitness as a usual close season. Plus, other than when new faces come in, the lads all know each other and what systems we play...it's really saved us from coming back to training "cold".
