Fabien Robert

Almost slipped under the radar - Robert has gone out on loan to Aldershot for a month.

One of the matches to remember from last season was Aldershot away - never have we looked in more control or accomplished in our football than the first half at the EBB Stadium. Our performance was simply outstanding and Aldershot, on an 8 match unbeaten run, could not cope with our superb passing game. 0-4 flattered the home side!

Kieffer Moore scored a brace and could have had several more but the star of the evening was Fabien Robert who demonstrated what a talented player he could be. He too scored a brace and impressed everyone. However we saw little of this potential during the rest of the season.

I hope the Aldershot turf suits him again, I'm glad he has found a club to ply his trade

Can't put it better Pitchfork.

Good luck to him and look forward to seeing how he does.

Well put. We were at Aldershot for that game and FGR were superb, the only team in it, and Robert was a star performer. I did shout out sometime in the second half - " It was just like watching Brasil ", and was told off by the wife. Not for the only time !!!.

What an enigma he is. Against Aldershot he looked premiership class, but against North Ferriby he was atrocious. I would love to see him at his best in a FGR shirt again, but this looks most unlikely.

Robert is a strange one. I can see why Murphy and even Sinclair have been left out, but was surprised about Robert. Especially as he was a Cooper signing. He didn't really get enough games last season but at times looked a class act. Looks a player that should be playing well above the conference. Maybe he can work his way back into favour? I think he could do very well for us. For example he would do a much better job than Reece Brown at playing behind the striker.

What is it with these month long loans? We've sent out at least 4 players on them over the last year. Hardly seen it happen anywhere else

He was another who could play well but also had anonymous periods. I think MC wants consistency and effort as well as control of the ball. He maybe gives the ball away too much and wasn't consistent but I agree that we have yet to find or develop someone better.

Good luck to him at Aldershot and maybe he will get another chance

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
