For a minute I thought he’d signed a new contract.

I’d much rather have him as back up to Pickford than Stekelenberg.

Good luck to him in his future career.

Sat on his contract for a year waiting to move on a free.

We slagged Barkley for something similar.

We did. But Joel wasn't a boyhood blue and we wouldn't have got much money for him either.

Robles did no harm. All he did was try his best. Unfortunately it wasn't quite good enough. Allardyce walked away with 9 mill for 6 months work. Robles probably got something like half of that for 5 years work. We didn't win anything while he was here so his bonuses couldn't have been that much. With the money that's sloshing around in football in general, he's a relative pauper. Nothing wrong with a leaving bonus in those circumstances. He wanted the place in the first team and we plonked Pickford in his way. Good luck to him. He's been alright, imo.

Wasn’t a local lad who professed his love. Wasn’t in our first team plans.
