Welcome back Bobby, however, it is a REAL shame for us to have lost Eric Steele already as he knows Paul Robinson very well.

Shame about Steele with his relationship with Robinson, but Mimms has brought through Hennessey at Wolves who is very good.

I did not like him as a player for us. Sensible Soccer had him down as Booby Mimms...

Mimms is highly reguarded in the football world so its sad to see Steele go after about 2 weeks but we have replaced him with another top coach, according to those in the know
