Was up for it last night..a bright display. Better than a journeyman footballer.

He often looks better when he's allowed to roam. And as our CMs mostly sat back to "protect" our CBs there was space for them to fill. Trouble is last night Boco was doing it too and both left their full backs exposed to the maurauding wide runners far too often as we lost our shape in an open game.

Undoubtedly our best player last night and I agree about him being better when he is allowed to roam. One of the problems with "blending" an ultimately successful football team is that often you can only judge how things work out in a match situation rather than the training ground. I wasn't overly keen on Jobi returning but with the right role in the team he can play a major part in moving us forward. Davis needs to work out how best to use him but he will need the right other players around him and tactics and formations that offer the cover that allows him to roam. I think he has been wasted stuck out on the left and last night he used the inside channels more. He and Caprice were the 2 positives in an inept display last night.

Massive waste of our limited budget.

I thought he was very unlucky with the shot that hit the woodwork; someone should have put the rebound away though.

Good game - a class above the rest on the pitch last night. He fancied it.

You can judge a decent player on their first touch.

Jobi's close control on a difficult pitch yesterday was a joy to watch.

He has got better, as he did in previous seasons, as we're up and running.

Quality player and definitely not a waste of money. At his age too its about how he conducts himself around the club and again he has been first class. Both this season and previous ones.

Didn't it somehow end up coming straight back at him and he took a wild swipe at it with his left?!

I have been pleased with Jobi since his return and think he is playing well enough . I also reckon he is doing his fair share of the work so no complaints from me.

I like Jobi as a player and also as a person. We all know of the nonsense that he put up with in his previous time at Leyton Orient, even to the point of being frozen out of the team for half a season, enough said. I thought he played well after that episode of not playing for half a season and credit to himself that he kept himself so fit and positive ! He then went to Stevenage and played quite well, including when he played against us. Jobi is 35 years old, 36 in November and is now back and playing well for us and as manager Davies recently said after a match ''Jobi ran around like a teenager'' says it all doesnt it ! Yes Jobi is one of our best signings under our new ownership for this season, so nice to have him back in this now, much happier club !

I think it kind of half-fell to harrold before it came back out to him, don't quote me on it though
