Welcome to Wolves.

Give Robinson a few kicks on Sat and you'll be a legend.
 
Exactly what we need, to be fair. I just can't get my head around the negative comments on social media. He improves our starting 11, is good in the air, happy to put his foot in when required and brings with him bags of experience. Providing he has the right attitude (and he started out in the lower leagues so I see no reason why he wouldn't) then he should be a good player for us. Be interesting to see if the one month turns in to longer. Either way, he goes straight in to the starting 11 v Blues.

Don't look at the comments underneath the article on the official Facebook account in that case. Painful - visual AIDS. I totally agree with you, btw.

Makes you wonder where the fans who comment on the likes of FB, Twitter etc post, forum wise. They can't ALL be on MM? We seem to be quite lucky on here.
 
So long as his attitude is right as Jinks says, fine to fill a short term gap. If he turns out to be ace then doubtless we can keep him for longer if we want as he's miles down the pecking order at Newcastle. He is let us say....rustic on the ball but we've had plenty of centre halves down here who fit that description and have done fine, in fact been well liked by the fans.
 
Welcome to Wolves chap. Seems fairly well spoken so can't imagine him being a diva.

Glad he's here but I think his presence necessitates Price for distributing play and retention otherwise I can see a lot of long balls and Afobe/ALF cutting very frustrated figures.
 
I keep thinking of that bloke from the fast show.
 
Great fit for a short term loan while we try and get some defenders fit again. I am sure he will do well.
 
The facebook group is a farce, yesterday 90% of the posters were moaning about the lack of a centre back, now we have one they are still moaning because he isn't one they would have in their fantasy football side.

Good luck to him, as someone said, he improves our current starting 11 if he fits in and plays like he can.
 
Given that we have conceded 9 goals in the last 3 games anything less than 3 on Sat will be an improvement on the average.

He's got experience and a fair number of games at Premier level so must have something - whether he's still got it will no doubt be seen shortly.

We have limited other options and for one I am happy to see him play before making further comment - good luck to him
 
Never thought much of him when I've seen him play for Newcastle in the Prem. But we aint Newcastle and we aint in the Prem. So I think he might do a good job for us if given half a chance. Let's hope so.
 
And we are slowly transforming into Millwall circa 2010. Our recruitment is laughable.

Perhaps you could elaborate?

Not agreeing or disagreeing by the way.

I should've said 2011-12 not 2010. However Wolves are following the same pattern as his Millwall side, almost exactly:

Millwall 2009-10 Promoted from Lg 1
Millwall 2010-11 First season in the Champ and finishes a respectable 8th narrowly missing the play-offs
MIllwall 2011-12 Finishes 16th

MIllwall's playing style in the 2011-12 season can best be described as direct. Lumping balls back to front for Darius Henderson to knock down or head at goal. His favourite formation was a sort of 4-4-2/ 4-2-3-1 with Henderson the target man and willing runners Andy Keough (fulfilling the Dave Edwards role) and Steve Morison picking up second balls and chasing defenders around putting pressure on them. He also had young player sin from Premiership clubs he couldn't get the best out of (Andros Townsend and Harry Kane) or just weren't ready. He signed some really clogging rubbish in the centre of midfield and valued size and strength over ability (Liam Trotter = Conor Coady). He also signed and played unpredictable wingers who waould have one good game in six (Dany N'Guesan).

The back 4 were a bunch of hoofballers (Craig, Lowry, Robinson) and of course he signed James Henry (one bright spot I guess) so he could whip in crosses for the big centre forward(s).

It seems the same thought process of building his Millwall team is also happening with Wolves.

IF Jackett has the last say on transfers then it looks like he just flat out can't buy players who will take us up at this level. IF it is Thelwell identifying these type of players then he's, simply put, nowhere near good enough as a recruitment specialist to get players to get us out of the division. It is probably a combination of both and that doesn't bode well for our Jez's promise of promotion.
 
Where did you hear that? I suppose the club had to use that carrot to get the player interested in any potential move.

And the 31-year-old – who is out of contract at United next summer – has revealed that the short-term move is with a view to a longer-term deal.

If the loan is successful, Wolves could attempt to make it permanent in the January transfer window.

Asked about the thinking behind the loan, Williamson said: “Initially short term, but speaking to the manager, it’s with a view for longer.

“As long as I can come here and prove myself, and the club are happy, something can be done.

“It’s somewhere I’d be happy to play in the future.”
