So this weekend I made one of my rare visits to Roots Hall and brought my travel companion with me. She had never seen a live football match before and wasn't quite sure what to expect and if she'd like the experience. Her immediate impression was one of surprise in a good way. I said, "I just hope you get to see us score a goal."

Seeing 4 goals was something else. Seeing Theo score a hat-trick was remarkable. She's of the thespian variety and likened the drama of the game and the participation of crowd to theatre.

Needless to say, she became an immediate convert.

After the game we went to eat at Nandos. Who sits at the table next to us? None other than the afore mentioned Mr Robinson himself, along with his wife and children.

Not wanting to bother him too much while he was with his family, I smiled, nodded and told him well done. However, he was only too happy to chat away, as too was his wife. He is a genuinely super guy. We ended up talking between us all for ages. When I told him how jealous my son will be when I tell him about meeting him, Theo suggested we take a photo together to show him. We also joked about how he should try and finish top scorer.

He seems to have a genuine love for the club and respect for SCP. He said he hopes to get more game time and make his time with us a success.

I have a lot of respect for the guy and really hope this performance is something he can build on.
