....of Rushden & Diamonds:

STEWART ROBSON CONFIRMED AS TECHNICAL DIRECTOR

"After recent discussions with the New Consortium, it did not take me very long to be persuaded to accept the position of Technical Director of Football.

The New Owners have shown a level of passion and commitment to Rushden and Diamonds which makes me delighted to be part of the new team, I believe that alongside Ernie we can build a squad to challenge for promotion next season.

I have already put in place a rigorous training programme for the players during the closed season with a view to them being at the fitness level I require when they return. We have requested the players to return from their summer break a week earlier than previously scheduled to allow adequate preparation to meet the challenge of the forthcoming season."

Sounds similar to some team last season.

They'll play good for the first two games, then be in a relegation scr*p.

You know we'll have to play them first game of the season, and lose to them, then they go on a 19 games without a win run!

Banksy, yes Robson is going places.... Canvey, Dagenham, Stevenage and all the conference sides he will lead Rushden to by this time next year! Its obviously a better place at Roots Hall without him. RM was wrong to bring him in as coach over Newman's head, it had an unsettling effect on the side and it led to the end of both Newman and Wignall IMO.

Isn't Leo Roget there?

I love silly season.

someone who like Robson to stay so they can claim the Essex No1 title off us.

I some of the player never look like enjoying training under Robson &amp; Mr Steve &quot;No Passion In His Eye&quot; Wignall ..... Look how much thing changed under Tilson - Players now cannot wait to train every week &amp; look forward to match (if they get selected) under Tilson.

To get success on the pitch, its depend how the players enjoy playing for the manager - Look at Crystal Palace under Dowie, from relegation to brink of Premiership in space of 6 months.

McSweeney&#39;s good form seemed to coincede with Robson&#39;s tenure as coach. He improved dramatically whilst Robson was there and his form evaporated once he&#39;d left. That makes me think Robson may have been a good coach to get so much out of a player who&#39;d previously shown so little.

Robson is also reknowned as a hard task-master and I&#39;ve already suggested today some players are happy playing in their comfort zones. If players didn&#39;t enjoy training was this because Robson was a bad coach or the players had a bad attitude and were unwilling to be pushed? I don&#39;t know and therefore wouldn&#39;t be quick to predict Rushden&#39;s demise on the basis of Robson&#39;s appointment.

Yorkshire Blue, You are on my wave length albeit I don&#39;t expect you to agree. I agree with what you say. Robson on his own would have been good for us &#33;

How do we know players didn&#39;t enjoy training under Robson? I seem to remember quotes from Jenkins and Rawle among others saying the level of professionalism had never been so high at the club...
