 Lee Robinson
Topic Originator: cjp1981  
Date:   Sat 26 Jan 15:20

Scully in and Robinson doesn’t even make the bench? I would imagine this spells the end for Robbo. I’m sad about this as I think he’s a quality keeper, he divides opinion on here but for me I can’t recall him letting us down much during his time. He gets a bit of stuck for his ‘moderndaygoalkeeper’ stuff on social media (got forbid a player at this level has other avenues of income?!) but overall he has done very well for us and I would be sad to see him go.

Seems Crawford has an issue with him being part time? Can’t say I’ve ever looked at a performance of his and if he has made a mistake I’ve thought “that wouldn’t have happened if he was full time” and from his MDG stuff this keeps him pretty sharp so I really don’t get it? Other areas of the squad are in more urgent need of attention than GK

I agree that Robinson doesn't deserve the abuse he gets, but you can't have your defenders spending most training sessions without the guy who will be in goals on the Saturday.

Nothing against Scully or Robinson but I do feel a bit sorry for Gill. Last year AJ said he would have "No Problem playing Cammy" and then signs Robinson. SC comes in and says he wants to "give youth a chance" and then signs Scully. I do hope he gets given a chance or sent on loan!

Yeah I do agree that we have to make a decision on Gill sooner rather than later, the fact Celtic we’re interested not that long ago suggests he’s got quality but I wouldn’t blame him for getting frustrated. Play him in cup competitions at least?

the Robinson family taking the news well obviously eh...

"Last year AJ said he would have "No Problem playing Cammy" and then signs Robinson. SC comes in and says he wants to "give youth a chance" and then signs Scully. I do hope he gets given a chance or sent on loan!"

we needed another keeper and it happened to be Robinson.
give youth a chance IF they are good enough and results come first was also said.
he aint going to go out on loan if Robinson leaves but he should have gone out on loan at the start of the season with another keeper coming in then.

"the fact Celtic we’re interested not that long ago suggests he’s got quality"

if you believe the daily record or the sun they were, was that genuine? I personally doubt it.

I am not alone in being grateful for his contribution and entertainment value.

Every second game he had was a shut out ,and this season that has been truly remarkable.

Provided it is not a confidential matter,it would be good to hear from the Board if he has left and why.

To bring in a goalie at a time when we have limited funds ,and are screaming for a striker ,the development was inexplicable.

You won't hear from anyone else from the club and I doubt Robinson will be able to give his side of the story.
Personally I think he dislikes Robinson and would like him to leave the club.
This was proven by Robinsons absence from the squad.
Hopefully it will be resolved and there will be the suggested competition for the keeper spot or that would surely prove there's something up.

During the season when outfield players have been struggling to complete 5 yard passes, control the ball, take throw-ins and corners and shots on target have been miserable, Lee provided entertainment and his enthusiasm was obvious...taking free kicks from half way line, running past central defenders and the occasional decent save.Even his bookings v Alloa and Raith for cleaning his studs by kicking the post were memorable.Good luck going forward Lee.

I thinks he's gone unfortunately. Some of the abuse he's been receiving on here and at some games was way OTT. Really like him as a keeper and for entertainment value - and that has been thin on the ground this season.

Best moments were his debut against Falkirk at New Year and his run and cross down the right wing against Hearts.

Best of luck Robbo - whatever you decide to do.

Sliema Par, let’s not go overboard here, Robinson is a decent keeper, but is also playing for a team that is 7th in the league and underperforming. The new manager has decided he wants a full time keeper rather than what we have right now. He gave his reasons in the interviews during the week.

Lee has every right to feel aggrieved, but ultimately that’s football. The manager makes the decisions and lives by them through his results. He has chosen to go about it this way and we shall see how that progresses.

In Season 2014/15 Ryan had 12 shut outs in 41 matches facing League 1 forwards.

Last season Lee attained 11 shut outs from 18 games and 10 from 20 this season up against Championship forwards.

In my experience you do not mend something which is not broken.

We have so few players who have performed adequately this season yet Lee has.We buy our Seasons to be entertained.

If something has happened(of Neil Lennon proportions) then we ,as fans, must accept that.However,nothing has been forthcoming.

The period since 10th January has been extremely disappointing.

Clearly the manager thinks that the training set up is broken hence that being his very first change.
Perhaps he has had this view for the whole season and is now in a position to do something about it.
It is his job to make these decisions based on more information than any of us have after all.

I find it strange that when AJ and Sandy were in charge, some posters got annoyed when they were being blamed for problems and were suggesting they be given to end of season to see if things could improve.

Now a new manager is already being dismissed after three games as boss having inherited a legacy of problems to solve and with no money to help change things.

Before anybody hits back, Crawford should and will be judged on his performance and the team's results.
I am not a dewy eyed fan blindly following a decent ex player nor am I a personal friend or relative.

But let's give things a chance to settle.

It was widely believed that promotion prospects were a pretty long shot by the turn of the year anyway and that a managerial style needed to change.

Crawford and Shields have picked up a poisoned chalice, but they need to be given a fair chance imo.

I would imagine there has been a fall out here. There certainly seems to be more to it, than just the fact he’s part time.

Maybe the coaching staff can’t be bothered with his antics? Robinson seems like a confrontational character, that has a history of falling out with management (see the end of his spell at Queens) and there may have just been a huge clash of personalities. We will never know the full story and this is purely speculation, not designed to start rumours. For all we know, there may be personal circumstances that has led to Robinson wanting out/needing time out.

There could be any number of reasons that Scully has been brought in and Robinson seems to have been frozen out. There’s no point in speculating. We just have to trust the coaching staff.

exactly, a bit to add also is Scully said in his interview he first heard of an interest from us before the Alloa Morton game on the 12th January which would back that up.

How does anyone know the full reasoning .
Maybe there are issues behind the scenes? I dont see anyone saying he has been a bad keeper .
Maybe there are issues from Lees Side and commitment .
Maybe the defence has brought it to the attention of management Lee not being there full time .
There are many scenarios.
But at the end if tge say SC has done what he is paid to do and thats make management decisions .
I am sure and SC has mentioned tgat management and board ard working round the clock to bring in whats needed .
Again maybe tge right player needed is simply not avaliable or discussions are ongoing wirh possible players .

Do we really care what the reason is?

It's clear that Lee is unhappy, and learnt recently he's in two days a week.

Crawford wants to change it, brings in just as competent who is full time.

What's the problem? This whole should be working on a striker nonsense, aye...the whole time we've only been looking for a GK right enough.

Robinson was alright, but Murdoch is better, Scully I'd argue was better based on his last term here and hell someone could probably put a decent argument for Gill if he got some playing time.

He's got a bit of attitude in him, likes his antics, people find it entertaining, his distribution is guff. He's no big loss.

Theres no room for sentiment here.

Robinson is gone because of his attitude, not his goalkeeping. An absolute weapon of epic proportions. Thinks he’s Ederson or Ter Stegen. He’s no!

Isn't it amazing how after a little bit of "spin" from the manager the Robinson haters come out the woodwork ,god forbid when he plays for us again.
I think he's only out with a split end

I'm a City fan and love Ederson but he's had a few games where he's cost us goals because of his style of play. It's the nature of the beast when you sign and want players to play like that. Do you get far more good than bad out of the player relative to the level you're at is probably a fairer question to ask yourself than: does he make mistakes? as every keeper is going to make mistakes probably even more so at our level.

It was also absolutely terrifying to watch when City first started playing square balls pretty much across their own goal lines when you didn't know if they could pull it off but then you start to get used to it the more you see it. It's a bit of a change from a supporters perspective especially when it feels safer just to clear the lines.

I've seen a lot of "Robinson is going to cost us one day" type posts without having seen too many "Robinson cost us today" posts and I think a lot of that is down to his style being quite different to what goalkeepers normally do in the second tier of our football (hoof it clear) and fans expecting that something is definitely going to go wrong because it feels a bit different/wrong.

I don't think he's an outstanding keeper at this level but I don't think he's anywhere near as bad as some of the comments I've seen on .net make him out to be.

It wasn't the first position i thought we had to strengthen but if Stevie has seen a gap he feels he needs to improve then that's a fair enough decision to bring in a new keeper. His job will ultimately rest on decisions like these.

I might have misread that. I thought you meant his attitude meant he thought he could play in that style but I think you might be saying he thinks he's better than he is.

The News in the "Dunfermline Press" today by their outstanding Reporter Ross Hart,a man with his finger on the pulse,that Lee Robinson has NOT left the cash strapped club ,beggars belief.

Lee had 12 shut outs last season and 10 so far in this one.

At a time when we are crying out for strikers ,this is NOT satisfactory.

It casts quite a shadow over Crawford's judgement at a time when we genuinely want him to start with a clean slate.

There is clearly more to it, than just signing a goalkeeper for the sake of it.

Why make out that Crawford has made no attempt to sign a striker? It’s simply not true.

If there’s a decent striker out there, why would their club let them come to us mid-season? You seem to very naively believe that we should say we’re interested in a player and the player and club will immediately want the deal to happen. Bizarre.

Also, why bother with a ridiculously negative post? You seem to have an issue with Crawford and have made that clear recently.

You say “we genuinely want him to start with a clean slate”, but you’re the one not giving him a chance here and criticising him for the fact that he’s not throwing money around, signing dud strikers and is trying to make sure any players coming in are of decent quality.

A striker will sign today, anyway. But no doubt you’ll still complain.

I did not say that Stevie was not trying to sign a forward.

I pointed out that,at a time when a Striker is a priority,getting in another goalie has been an unnecessary and costly distraction.

Some fans have pointed out a disconnect between the part time Lee and the defence.

Though 12 shut outs then 10 suggests otherwise.

In any case,Ryan was in the team after two days of training ,and didn't even know some players' names.That sounded really co ordinated!

He is very over dramatic.

When the transfer window is open you are on the phone to a number of players in a number of positions. Signing a GK won't be a distraction, it's an extra few phone calls and Scully wouldn't have been brought in to the expense of bringing in a striker.

If Scully has come in and none of the other GKs are leaving then I am surprised, four GKs (five if you include the boy under Gill).

I think Scully is better than Robinson so happy with the acquisition but if we're still keeping that many GKs on the books then it's very strange.

More to it than meets the eye me thinks!

Of course there's more than what meets the eye,I said that when I found Scully had signed
It seems a bit nieve to make bringing another goalkeeper in without having the exit of another in place .
Then again he said he wants competition for places and not sure if Gill was considered a challenge to Robinson .
The managers either clever in during this to improve the keeper position ,something I've not thought a problem and he will be delighted.
Alternatively if it's a sign of arrogance and expected Robinson to leave , he will be fuming and something he might have to bear in mind for the future.
Just for record I think it was nieve of the manager to divulge any info on Robinson's contract, let's face it some of the responses towards this from forum members has been quite harsh.
It's pretty obvious that it's not been a problem with the understanding between the keeper and outfield players, so to hide behind that to justify his bringing in the new keeper(if that is the case of course) is maybe not the best way.
Incidentally did any one see that nasty Man city goalkeeper using gamesmanship to try and put off the penalty taker, disgusting.

That's quite a conclusion from seeing Scully play once in a game at this level where he's had little to do.
I'm sure if you went to his previous club forum boards you'd see mixed opinions as you would for any player.
He's been released from a club no better than ours so it will need me a few more games to make that judgenent

Exactly and did they feel obliged to give a reason why? Nope
The reason Crawford put out a statement regarding his justification for a bringing in a new keeper is because it surprised do many people.
If he brings outfield players in I doubt if he will say why,

Problem is what happens if SC wants to work on set pieces or the defence after a bad result on the Saturday. Wait a minute we dont have our goalkeeper. That must be the issue DAFC90 as imo Robinson performance have been generally good.

I think we have strengthened our squad, though not in the way(s) you'd have wanted Sliema.

If Robbo was injured we'd have to rely on Cammy. I've no qualms at that, but Scully gives a more experienced option in the event of an injury or suspension or any other situation that would make Robbo unavailable. Seems a sound move to me.

Like you I think, Sliema, I'm impatient for a solution to our lack of goals.
Either we need new player(s) or Craw has to get the players we've got scoring more. I wish there was a quick fix but I think we just have to take it week by week and see how things go.

You're right, we haven't made good that loss.

Maybe there hasn't been anyone we could've got to replace him. Whereas getting Scully was an opportunity that arose and had to be seized or lost, i.e. it wasn't something that could be put on hold while we seek a replacement for Keena.

Yeh I get your point fully Westies, but I think, as someone else said, the loss of Keena was out of our control.

Are you worried that Craw isn't even looking for a replacement for him?

No, don't question he's trying but its disheartening to see teams around us doing business and we've effectively gone backwards. We needed players before losing Keena and Martin now the need is greater.

You said Scully gives cover for Robbo which means we didnt have to play the less-experienced Cammy. But Robbo is out the picture so the situation hasn't changed, Cammy was still on the bench. You also said "I think we have strengthened the squad " how can we have strengthened losing two players back to Hearts and not bringing anyone in ?

Scullys wage replaces Murdoch's, who's wage may be paid by insurance as he's been out so long.

<<<You said Scully gives cover for Robbo which means we didnt have to play the less-experienced Cammy. But Robbo is out the picture so the situation hasn't changed, Cammy was still on the bench. You also said "I think we have strengthened the squad " how can we have strengthened losing two players back to Hearts and not bringing anyone in ?>>>


Oh dear. What a muddle you're getting intae Westies.

If we didn't have Scully, Cammy wouldn't have been on the bench, he'd have been playing. Yes? No? Comprendez?

I conceded that I'd overlooked the fact we'd lost Keena. That's what these words of mine meant:

<<< Woops! I forgot Keena. Big loss to us.

You're right, we haven't made good that loss. >>>

Now it's just no use you trying to bludgeon your way through every time you make a mistake. Just own up. You got it wrong.
Scully did and does give cover for Robbo. It's because we've got Scully that Robbo could be dropped, go awol, move on, or whatever Robbo has done.

Even if Robbo is no longer with the club - as you seem to assume - Scully provides cover by way of replacement so that Gill is not our only goalkeeping option.

BTW TURPS I appreciate your posts. Just ignore Westies, he's having another off-day.

If we didn't have Scully, Robinson would have played, like he did the two weeks before, Comprendez ?

You claim we have strengthened which is nonsense, the goalkeeping situation is exactly the same but now we have a keeper twiddling his thumbs doing nothing.
We lost two players yet we strengthened, silly boy.

Rastapari, I never said we could bring in all of those with scully wage, but his wage means one less of those can now be signed. Like say for talks sake we had 3k a week to pay out on wages to the end of the season, now we have whatever scully wage is (ballpark 1k) less to spend on the areas of the team that badly need improvement.

Looking at the priorities, I’d have ranked them:

1. Striker
2. Winger
3. Centre back
4. Another striker
5. Another winger

Batter through the list in order until the budget is tanned (realistically 2 or 3 players). I don’t think any pars fan would have had “sign an extra goalie” on their list on the 1st of January when the window opened. I’ve no problem with bringing scully in as I think he will be fine for this level but as I said, it only really makes sense if you are getting Robinson off the wage bill.

Craw gives an explanation for Scully's signing in his interview on COWS tonight. If the reserves have a match Monday/Tuesday (which they did this week) you could have two days' training without a keeper. Even young Burt might not be available if he had to be on the bench for the reserves presumably. That suggests Robbo isn't normally available until Wednesday.

Some folk seem to think Craw prioritised a goalie over a striker, as if he should've waited for a striker to come along before spending on anyone else. Seems to me Scully became available and although signing a goalie may not have been top priority, it was too good to pass up. That's good business sense i.e. got that one done.

Ref: Westies squint kicks, Thu 31 Jan 18:25:

<<< If we didn't have Scully, Robinson would have played, like he did the two weeks before >>>

Ah yes, that would be Westies' famous ESP - seems he can read Craw's mind. Well he could be right but on the other hand, it might just be a completely false assumption.

<<< We lost two players yet we strengthened, silly boy. >>>

(Why are you looking in the mirror as you're saying that?)

Certainly strengthened in the goalie department despite your daft idea that
<<< the goalkeeping situation is exactly the same but now we have a keeper twiddling his thumbs doing nothing.>>>

Has he not still got that problem ?

A cheaper option might have been " lee don't suppose you could help us out and come in on either Monday orTuesday then a Friday"
Come on give the supporters some respect.
All Crawford needs to say I don't rate Robinson and would think he's part of the he problem so I've brought a keeper in, bu bum

Pfft this still going on. Clearly something ain't right for Lee Robinson to be no.1 to Scully coming in and now Robbo not even getting on the bench...no word on injury, so the GK acquisition will be warranted.

As others have said, after a game and we concede shoddy goals from set pieces, let's get straight to work on that...oh wait...where the fecks our keeper....

Scully is a better keeper than Robinson in my opinion, he wouldn't have been signed if it wasn't financially viable, so stop worrying, trust the board, they've proven they have a strong focus on the numbers.

If Robbo goes, have fun. If not, don't sit and sulk, just get on with it.

It's well documented you don't rate Robinson which is fine with the manager seemingly having the same opinion, again fine
The point of the post is to highlight the fact that the managers is digging a deeper and deeper hole regarding the situation.
He said enough last week not to need to expand.
My point is the goalkeeper training situation is no better now than IF had asked Robinson to train on a reserve matchday ,so why all the Bull
As you say let's just get on with it ,there's now 5 goalies at club and only one deemed playable,oh dear very messy

Apart from a few folk on here moaning about the situation (where the majority seem fine with it) and maybe putting Robinson's nose out of joint, it's not making a blind bit of difference anywhere else. We got a new keeper, Crawford made some comments about the reasons, end of story.

Crawford showed some early leadership by dropping Robinson immediately after signing Lee.
Gives confidence to the new signing and let's the rest of the squad know they best keep on their toes.
Playing Smith from the start another example that Crawford is willing to be patient even if it means dropping points to keep them fresh.
Obviously we could all have predicted we wouldn't score on Saturday but a clean sheet is something to build on with a new coaching team and different way of doing things.
There is no point moaning now as we are where we are and most likely fighting to avoid relegation rather than promotion.
Sooner fans accept that, the better we can get behind the team without the expectations of going up.

If you only turn up to moan then do it elsewhere

From COWs:
“Asked about the goalkeeping situation and Lee Robinson’s absence at Cappielow, Stevie explained:-

“We felt that we had to address the goalkeeper situation with a full team time goalie coming on board. We have reserve games early in the week and if you only have one goalie in n the Monday and Tuesday you are restricted to the work that you do.

“Ryan (Scully) came in and I had spoken to Lee who rightly so would have been upset and disappointed that we have brought in a goalkeeper but we felt it was right to go with Ryan and put Cammy on the bench on Saturday. Lee has trained today and he will train tomorrow so there is competition there for places at the moment and that is what we want at the club.”

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong - but didn't Robinson keep a number of consecutive clean sheets when he came to the club last season ?

He's a more than decent keeper IMO - and the part time issue should not be a critical factor if he's doing the business.

Didn't Eddie Connachan do a shift as a miner not long before performing two of the finest goalkeeping displays in the history of Scottish football ?

If the manager thinks it is affecting the team then of course it's a factor.
The team should train all week together so they can work together when it matters.
Maybe it's not the clean sheets that the manager is looking at but the mistakes that are made which lead to conceding goals.

It sounds to me like it was a temporary arrangement at the time that suited everyone.

I am guessing it was a means to an end at the time to fill a hole untill Murdoch was fit again........which obviously has not happened, and, reading between the lines, might not happen.

As time has went on it won't be feasible as a long term / permanent solution which is the new managers view and seems fair enough.

Likewise if he is part time and only here a couple of days a week i wouldn't particularly be happy if it was me and i was travelling up from the North East of England every week to sit on the bench.

As for the oft repeated argument that he is part time and comes up from Northern England; this,surely, implies real commitment.It also emulates one Stephen Dobbie; an uncomfortable fact for some.

Lee drove up overnight at New Year 2018 before his superb performance v Falkirk.

Silema, usually I rate your posts, what's happened lately? You're usually one of the sensible ones but 2019 has shown you have a true boner for Joe Cardle and willing to pass judgement without knowing what's going on behind the scenes. Was your NY resolution to turn into a plonker?

SC comes in tries to improve the squad, and just gets shot down by folk on here. What chance has he got? What chance are you giving him?

You also can't seriously be comparing Lee Robinson to Stephen Dobbie. Jesus wept.

I remember when we saved the club we were patting ourselves on the back thinking we were the best supporters in the world. Did we just save the club so we can sit on our high horse and criticise and ridicule all the time? If so...then I want my money back.

That's what it feels like 90% of the time just now.

Yes criticise the performances, they've been poor but when a new guy comes in and does his best to try and improve the squad, that's football, suck it up. No-one is immune or bigger than the club.

I'd back SC all day long over wannabe know it alls on a football forum.

Hes brought in Scully, who's not had time to do literally anything wrong, one game he's had, a clean sheet, and he was decent when he was with us last time.

He's brought in Anderson, where I hang my head in shame as I fell for a post on here to say he was 6 weeks out. He's a player Aberdeen fans have been raving about...he's a striker is he not??

Hes brought in Blair, who plays for a pretty big club in Swansea, all be it the u23s, not to be sniffed at.

What does it take for fans to see a glimmer of optimism?

Fans need to remember we can have big expectations but we're not entitled to anything in any shape or form.

Robinson went from first team player to not even on the bench..that won't be because he's PT. SC is inexperienced....he's not stupid.

I think SC can take a learning from this, based on this post alone on how something said in a press interview can be interpreted. If I take what SC said face on with no other considerations it does come across like he's brought someone in because the guys PT.

I don't think that was his intention for it to come across as harsh as that, and isn't probably what he meant.

SC is entitled to replace him if he believes it will improve the squad or help encourage more competition for the jersey, when he refers to PT, we all know what he's getting at but it seems to have come across wrong.

If there is stuff behind the scenes, he wasn't going to come out and say e.g. 'we've had a major dust up and he's not seeing the subs bench never mind getting on the pitch again'.

He maybe could've articulated it a little better.

I can see that angle DAFC90

I think just being honest would be a good starting point for him.
Don't you think he's taking the fans for mugs to think that they don't see that there's more than what meets the eye.
Maybe the club could let Robinson explain his version ,as inevitably if will come out .


Nah, you wouldnt expect this to reach the public domain so letting Robinson have that opportunity would exacerbate the issue.

SC should have just kept quiet or been more general in his response and kept everything behind the scenes.

I can't believe this debate has been going on so long. Footballers get dropped all the time without explanation, especially when a new manager comes in.

Don't you think it's important to keep the jury informed when new evidence is found ?

You may mock.

It's an extract from a legal document ,should Robinson choose to persue this the club would be in deep poo.
Crawford in his stupidity has put this in writing several times.
If it was me and thought that this would effect my future career I would persue this


The suggestion that employment law should drive team selection is possibly the dumbest and funniest thing I have ever read on this site and it has a lot of competition 😂

Interesting ,hopefully Robinson doesn't make an issue if this.
I know what I'd be doing.


Part-time workers
Key points
Part-time workers have the right not to be treated less favourably than a full time worker doing the same or similar work regarding the terms of employment (for example holiday entitlements and hourly pay rates should be pro rata).
Part-time workers have the right to request a written statement of reasons for any treatment which is less favourable than a comparable full time worker.
Part-time workers should be selected as a full time worker would be for promotion or redundancy.


None of that has any significance whatsoever to the issue.

This needs to stop DAFC90. Robinson is part time rightly or wrongly. The new manager doesn’t want his goalkeeper to be part time hence the reason why he signed a new goalkeeper. This doesn’t make Robinson a bad goalkeeper. The situation doesn’t work for SC and he’s rectified it.

so after just 1 week of training with the defence they already have the organisation and understanding to cover once the keeper makes a move to close down the striker.

Good work so far

Lee Robinson let in 3 goals last time Ross County visited. He also let in 1, right through his hands, when we played at Cappielow.

Scully lost 2 goals on Saturday and kept a clean sheet at Morton. He's twice as good based on the evidence so far.


Clearly, that's ridiculous. But, it's still a fair bit more insightful than your analysis, Sliema.

What's odd is that you must have watched Ryan Scully play for us for two seasons - where he made very few errors and was arguably player of the season in both years. He's certainly no downgrade on Robinson and he can train with the team all week long. Strikes me as a fairly shrewd signing - especially as it has clearly not been at the expense of bringing in a striker.

There was one quick break yesterday which came from a Scully kick out with lighting speed reaction from the players around, as if it had been worked on in training.

Maybe our head coach has just happened to identify a key team issue after all and has acted on it.

Scully now 5 clear of Robinson in goals lost in comparative games this season. That's after only 3 games. Scully has conceded 2 vs Robinson's 7 (seven).

Even if he loses 3 against Ayr, he'll still pull further clear.
