Signed him on FM mobile 2016 for us and he turned into a very solid defender captaining the side to the championship title.

Which is weird, as he only signed a contract here til the end of the season. Maybe hoping for better things but nothing came up?

If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious shit...

In his interview he said something about it taking a long time for the right club to come along, and about DF's desire to develop players being important. Makes me wonder if he wanted somewhere where they'd be willing to play him, coach him and let him go when the chance to step up comes along. Let's hope he looks a bit too good for this division.

From Walsall fan

'Good player, I really liked him and was sad we didn't keep him. Fast, strong, physical and good in the tackle, especially 50/50's - can get caught out positionally though and his distribution is pretty poor. '

Distribution is most certainly not a requirement of the centre backs this year.

Just looked if Jerel was still playing somewhere, he isn't but he seems to be enjoying his post football career by the sounds of it....

2 more quotes from the Walsall forum.

Quote
That's the move I assumed he'd make on leaving Walsall rather than going straight to Tamworth as everyone on this forum was seemingly advising him to go to Soapy Tit Wank


Very surprised at that? after most on here predicting him playing for the hussey arms in brownhills  Huh? but good luck to the lad i think he deserves it

Sounds promising, a fair way from the finished article but still young at 22 lets hope he can be coached to becoming a very good additon.

Hard-pressed British soldiers swore they had seen angels, ghostly archers, even St. George himself, riding to their aid near Mons in August 1914 WWI.

There's a video of him outrunning Rico Henry who is no slouch. Good to have a little bit of pace back there. Not as much as a 'footballer' as Conroy but sounds better than Robertson
