At what point does he start panicking about getting a move? I know technically he can sign at any stage, but you'd imagine the longer he is without a club the more reluctant a team will be to sign him. He can train all he wants with the FAI fitness coach but not training with a team and playing games will set him back.

Has likely already been offered a 'pay as you play' contract with a club but that would be very risky for him. Non pay as you play would be risky for them.

On this subject whatever your thoughts on SK or Big Mick you have to admire their  decency with regard to in this case Robbie being involved with the squad and then Mick bringing in Richard keogh after Derby treated him badly.….not the same thing but Harry Arter was very grateful for how SK managed him recently.
Good to see in my opinion.

It's a good shout, it's a decent thing to do. Mick has always looked after the irish lads and its good to see Kenny do it too.

They're irish players after all, other players see this too and feel that they'll be looked after too.

Hopefully he sorts sthing decent sooner rather than later.



Hes finished. Nobody wants to touch him. Even when 'fit' he has looked miles off the pace of top flight or International football. Sure his form before his serious knee injury was similar to Hendrick, one decent game for every 10 bad ones. Hes massively over rated. Had one good season with Norwich in 2015/16 which coincided with his forum for us late 2015 - summer 2016.

Time to forget about him and McCarthy.

Think it’s a bit harsh myself. As recently as January he was playing v well for Burnley, was a regular and scored a great goal against Everton. Burnley fans seemed to be v impressed. Just seems his body couldn’t behave unfortunately!

I wonder could a short 2 - 3 month stint in the LOI be worked out to get his fitness up. Be a benefit to all parties

No, moving from being a premier league player to a loi player would hinder his chances of getting a decent club.  No agent is going to let him do that just to build fitness.

Think Brady needs a dose of reality and look at what Keogh did after his bad injury at Derby. Dropped a level to MK Dons and within six months was back up in the Championship and was picked up by Blackpool who were promoted to the championship this summer.

If Brady is holding out for a Premier League or a top four championship team he'll be waiting.

No, it would do the opposite. If he got through all those games without any re-occurrence of an injury this would help him get a longer term contract with a higher profile club.

It's a win win situation for any club if he stays relatively fit - as their getting a player for free and no doubt they'll be clauses in the contact to protect the club from hefty financial loss.

The deal could also be a combination of salary and appearances etc...

He has been rubbish for a very long time. That goal is one of his only goals in years. I would look back on him a bit more favourably pre injury but than Bandwagon but people have had their memories of his ability clouded by 2 or 3 decent performances at the Euros 5 years ago.

Says an awful lot that Burnley chose to offer a deal to 34 year old Aaron Lennon over him.

I'm sure he would have received pay as you play offers from clubs down the divisions in England and possibly Scotland. He needs to sign for a UK club and play games this season if he still has intentions of getting back to a higher level. His previous injuries have limited his abilities though and he also seems to be prone to picking up new injuries and knocks so he needs to be realistic about his future - it's championship level at best.

Yep, needs regular injury free Championship football at a minimum to get back in to the Irish set up imo. I retain some hope as he has ability, but it's probably a long shot! If he goes to Turkey/USA for the money, then good luck to him, but it would be hard to justify including him in future squads if that is the case.

Why would it be hard to justify him getting into a squad cause he went to Turkey or US. We've got guys getting in from League One. I know f**k all about Turkey but the MLS isn't the Mickey mouse league it used to be.

Out of sight, out of mind. He'd have to be ripping it up over there imo. Derrick Williams hasnt had a call up since going to the USA although tbf he was always quite a way down the pecking order.

Again saw a lot of Robbie when he was at Burnley .
To be very honest he was on fire and the fans had taken to him , i recall he scored at Bournemouth in a mid week game from ouside of the box he was taking on defenders and beating them and putting in great crosses . All that changed in the next game or two at Leicester when he went down and since then he was really never the same if i am honest .
 A lot of the Burnley fans turned on him saying that he was a waste of a wage always injured and so on , now Dyche gave him an extra year ( did sign a 3 year contarct with an optian of another year ) to prove himself but alass not to be never go a real run , he never took on defenders as his speed seemed to have gone just looked out of sorts .
Now he said the right things when he left and the backroom staff were still looking after him for a short time .
 For me Robbie's moment was the free kick against Chelsea , i have the shirt what he wore that day on my wall at home .
Will always love him Thumbs Up
