Robinson Wants More Of The Same

Robinson Wants More Of The Same

Swansea City midfielder Andy Robinson said we played 'champagne football' on Saturday as we thrashed Carlisle 5-0 at the Liberty Stadium.

Robinson's performances this season have been below par really compared to his standards.

I think this is down to the fact he is played out of position on the left wing. With Jackett favouring tall defensive types in the centre, Robinson is forced to play out wide and usually this forces him to stray in the centre, continually going out of position.

However, he was back to the level he is capable of on Saturday and capped it off with the best goal of the game, a 25-yard cracker that flew into the top right hand corner.

Robinson now says we need to keep up this level of performances if we're going to gain promotion this season:''At times on Saturday, in the first half especially, we were playing champagne football,''

''I think the fans went home happy after seeing that performance, but we've got to keep it going through what is a massive period in the season.

''To be a promotion-winning team we've got to do it week-in, week-out. We all know this team is capable of doing it, but we've lacked that consistency this year.

''We've won a couple but then lost a couple and it hasn't been good enough.


Robinson also handed special praise to new signing Ian Craney who paired up with captain Darren Pratley in the centre: ''I've got to say on the record that he was magnificent,'' the former Tranmere man said.

''Fair play to him, that was one of the best home debuts I've seen since I've been at the club.''


Unfortunately though for Andy, he picked up his fifth booking of the season which means he'll miss Saturday's home game against Rotherham.

Left midfield seems to be the only position Robinson will play in under Jackett and usually he tends to always go out of position (he did Sat as well!) but he showed glimpses of his best vs Carlisle.
