so we'll be left with one striker???? who are we going to get with £1 million? roberts is not prolific and he's proven. we know what we can get from him. it would be a mistake to sell him at this point, plus i do like roberts despite how frustrating he is at times.

Well i did have a sneaky feeling the geordies and brommies would want him and i think it will happen, thought we might get at least £1.5 - £2 million for him tho.

Must say i am a big Roberts fan. More so than Kalinic. I really hope we can keep him on our side.
