Good to see Robinson come in today and play very well. Looked assured and more agile than I imagined he'd be. One great save and some good kicking.

We did not miss Tom today. A very capable deputy.

He didn't have a lot to do, but what little he had to do he did well. Without taking anything away from Robinson, you have to wonder what the fact that he was playing says about Nick Pope.

All his good work did come in the first half because he had very little to do in the second half other than pick the ball out of the net. Says a lot for how well we played in that half and makes it even harder to take the defeat.

I too expected Pope to be number 1 back up but I see it more as a good reflection on Robinson than a bad reflection on Pope

An England goalkeeper with 50 odd caps hardly needs to justify his inclusion.

Like donzy said I was amazed at his fitness and agility. His kicking is actually better that Heatons!

No reflection whatsoever on young Pope who must be seriously benefiting from working with Billy Mercer, Heaton and Robinson. Pope's time will come.
