Kashi was my man of the match against Bradford, notwithstanding Mackie's terrific strike. And so I would like to articulate here what exceptional qualities he has, having seen him at Gillingham, Rochdale and Bradford. He has the same (if not better) defensive qualities as Mousinho in the Kanté role. But his passing is just superb. 15 mins into the Bradford game, he turned and before he the opportunity to look exactly where Jordan Graham was sent a swift and inch-perfect pass across 35 yards. But it was not one of the long floaty passes which Rob Dickie is now specialising in but a lower, fast ball which completely bamboozled both the Bradford defence and midfield. He worked very well with Brannagan because both have good close control coming out of midfield whilst scanning the wings to see if either Graham or Whyte are free. Potentially a very powerful partnership there. Even if we stay up, we are almost certain to lose Curtis Nelson but keeping Kashi would be a very smart thing to do.

I didn’t think much of Kashi as @abbycox said Robinson’s mate but after today I’ve seen him in a different light and yes he had a good game today a decent acquisition.

I thought he was very good today.
As were Dickie , Nelson and Sam Long
Whoops I forgot
Josh Ruffells who also seems to be benefiting from a run in the team in the same position

Agree with this - thought Jordan was pretty poor today though and Whyte's finishing was atrocious too although the rest of his game was good - was surprised how poor Bradford were and, although he came on late, Payne looked nothing like he did last season

Not bad for one of "Gobbos" mates who doesn't deserve to be here. Wasn't perfect but did well today and kept things ticking - something we have struggled with at times this season - and provided the right sort of outlet for his team mates.

and to think some slagged him off before seeing him play, saying he's only here cos one of Robinsons mates.
just the sort of experience needed and gives Mous a break
Yeah it there are some looking to criticise everything that KR does regardless.
He is pretty unlikely to sign 'a mate ' unless he thinks that he is a good player surely?

Don't start throwing logic and reason in to this!!

Remember that Robinson has had his favourites on the whiteboard in his office for months, moans when we lose and picked an experienced right back over an untested George Baldock!!! He's a full on s*** c*** and nothing he will ever do will change that!!!!

Oh, and wasn't Mackie only here because he was mates with Shaun Derry??! Maybe their mates will keep us up this year!

Curtis reminds me of Steve Foster. Does everything that is asked of him whilst expending the least amount of energy. Very near MOM for me. but not quite.

What I love most about you, Scotchers, is that you carry all this apoplectic rage with you constantly. It really, really matters to you what goes on here. You must sit around stewing on it all in your personal life, in fact I know you do, seeing as you frequently make passive aggressive comments clearly aimed at me, and occasionally have even tagged me into posts when I’ve said absolutely nothing. You must sit around with this forum on your mind constantly. That’s a shame, much the same as it’s a shame that as you always used to do with others in past times, your default setting is to ping off like a tightly coiled spring rather than engage people with any basic level of calmness and sensibility. You lose any sort of higher ground you could ever occupy with your worrying amounts of fury, and the fact that you would rather create yourself some sort of internet nemesis than either just ignore people or have a grown up exchange. You’re that guy at the pub who is spoiling for a fight all night, and then proceeds to spend the entire evening staring at people and stumbling up to them in the hope something kicks off. Your blood pressure must be through the roof, chap.

I enjoy the fact that I get under your skin so much, to the point where you think about me so frequently while I barely remember you exist until you stumble up to me going “come on then”, and I also enjoy the fact you seem to think I’m full of s**t on things that have actually happened. I post under my own name, Scotchers. I’m a former employee of the club, I used to work in the football media after that - it’s one thing having an opinion but if I was telling lies and making things up about spending an afternoon with your beloved manager, and in turn what he said, I’d have been collared for it by now. I haven’t been, because nothing I’ve ever said about anything that went on that day was untrue. I’m not some anonymous, faceless troll who can say what they like without being clocked for it - the football club can ring me up any time that they like and demand that I remove anything untrue I’ve said. Why haven’t they done that, I wonder. It’s almost like...

Anyway, do feel free to ping me a PM any time you like if you fancy a verbal scrap - you clearly take some sort of therapy from all this obsessive chasing and relentless bouncing - and I would hate you to lose that. But there’s really no point engaging with you openly because all you do is play the man rather than the ball, as your old friend used to say. Which is a shame, because I used to love watching somebody constantly giving Charlie a whack around the ankles. Sadly, and worryingly, it actually appears you’re just a bit of a loose canon and become obsessed with anybody who criticises anything to do with your beloved club, regardless of the validity of what they’re saying or the evidence that may be in front of you to suggest something isn’t maybe very good. From refusing to even admit that a manager has vastly underachieved over more than a season of football, while racking up a league win percentage barely above Talbot and Kemp, to saying there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the constant winding up petitions and that it just doesn’t matter if we’re always due in court so long as things look normal from the outside, your loyalty to the club is admirable. But it’s also worrying, as is your incandescence towards anybody who feels differently to you. You were probably one of the people on the old TiU forum who mauled me when I said Kelvin Thomas would run us into the ground, that it was all smoke and mirrors at the time and all was not as well as he was pretending.

Would love to engage with you and others in healthy debate, but while your priority is refusing to even consider points made by certain people in lieu of a strange vendetta, there’s really no point. I will happily dismiss your posts and assume that you will dismiss mine, rather than carry on watching you drunkenly taking swings at someone at kicking out time, even when they’re going “I am not going to fight you, move away”. I’d rather be the bloke with the strong and unpopular opinion than the bloke who just can’t get by without needing somebody to fight before they stumble home with a kebab.

PS - Kashi played well yesterday. Moved the ball quickly, possibly too quickly at times when he could’ve looked up and seen he didn’t need to rush, but overall very decent. If he plays like that for what’s left of the season it’ll be job done in terms of his time here.

Thread back on track.
