Roberts 4 Year Deal - Not A Good Idea

Roberts 4 Year Deal - Not  A Good Idea

Jason Roberts recently signed a new and improved four year contract at Rovers to entend his stay up to 2012.

We asked the guys and girls of the VB Universe whether they felt that was a sound investment or not?

Judging by the results not that many are impressed. Roberts is a strong player and grafts like mad for the team but his finishing has been called into question by several Vital Blackburn members.

This is probably what led some to vote 'what a joke' in relation to his new deal.

However, yours truly believes that J-rob offers the club a lot and can help us in our long term aims.

Here are the results in full.

Quality - 24%
What A Joke - 66%
Not Bothered - 10%

Up next we are debating whether Coach Ince should be sacked or not? Good god this could end very badly.

I like roberts, but his performances recently made the timing of the deal very poor. Maybe without it hanging over him, he'll improve (?)

Does seem a bit dodge! Opposing fans can vote and will often reflect an unfiar result. But thats the way the cookie crumbles I suppose. The guys who want a positive result will just have to vote twice!
