Defo a central midfielder. If he can get forward at times then all the better.

Robinson playing centrally.

With all due respect, I dont agree with that at all, he's better coming from deep where he can see the game develop in front of him. Part of the reason Irish fans have an issue with Jeff is that various Irish managers have tried to shoehorn him into roles that dont play to his strengths, no. 10 being one of them. He has also been used as a right sided midfielder by previous Irish managers. He is at his best in a midfield 2 with a licence to link play and roam forward, his current position alongside Cullen, who likes to hold more, is ideal. He was also a very decent holding midfielder in his time at Derby taking the ball from the defence and starting play from there, he can do that job also if Cullen is absent.

In that 3421 scenario he won't be a 10 as such. Mcgrath would more if a 10. Hendrick would be the link between Cullen and mcgrath.

Each to their own, but I dont see it. That would look more like a 3-6-1 to me. Robinson in a free role alongside Mc Grath (assisting the midfield when required defensively) behind Idah looks like our best 2-1 to me. Jeff is needed further back alongside Josh  to show for the ball from the defenders and progress it forward.(if you have just one player i.e. Josh doing that, it's far too easy to press against imo)

Yes, it was something of a training game. But good to see Jeff keep his focus and look to be constantly getting on the ball.

The thing that gets me about Jeff he will have an outstanding game then you wiill struggle to know where he was on the pitch over the next six games and that's him in a nutshell .

That was him in a nutshell as the ball flew over his head back and forth under previous regimes. As I said earlier he must have had a crick in his neck. Also he was played out of position on many, many occasions, both on the right and as a 10. To be fair to him he got on with it and never moaned despite the, at times, toxic criticism that came his way. Great to see a manager utilising him properly now and playing to his strengths. He's no world beater, but he remains our best (or close to it anyway) central midfielder. He's always been an 8, he can do a job as a 6, but he was never, ever a 7 or a 10 and was only used there due to the dearth of options in the squad.
