Mark Robins hails 'absolute snip' Nahki Wells' winning strike

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Nahki Wells scored the winner on his debut for Huddersfield - Picture: Huddersfield Town Nahki Wells scored the winner on his debut for Huddersfield - Picture: Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins described Nahki Wells’ dream last-minute debut winner against Millwall as “a real poacher’s goal”.

Wells became Town’s record signing on Friday night – thought to be in the region of £1.5million – when he moved from the Bantams and he came on early in the second half with the game deadlocked.

The Bermuda-born striker, who had scored 15 goals for City this season, produced a great finish in the 90th minute to justify Robins’ decision to move swiftly in the transfer window.

“It was a real poacher’s goal and an outstanding finish,” said Robins, who described Wells as an “absolute snip”.

“That goal will certainly settle him down and he can go on from here. You can’t teach what he did.”

With other Championship clubs and a Premier League outfit rumoured to be interested in signings Wells, Robins said: “It’s a real coup for us.

“We have heard people question why he has signed for Huddersfield, saying it is tantamount to lacking ambition but that’s ignorant.

“These comments come from people who have no idea what’s going on here but that’s fine.”

Robins added: “Bradford wanted to do the business early and so did we. If we had waited until later in the window we would have been struggling.”

In a game of few chances, Scott McDonald’s shot was deflected onto the foot of a post before the break for Millwall.

Wells’ winner was worth waiting for.

The back-pedalling Jack Smith headed back towards his own goal and Wells nipped in to fire home from a tight angle.

To be fair, the dog botherers are light years ahead of us in every department. It's painful to see him go to them but it's a brilliant move for Nahki and I wouldn't be surprised to see him at Wembley again in May.

The majoriy of posters on here seem to think football players to be loyal and the T&A need to be bias towards BCFC. Sorry, you are living in the wrong
world. Footballers are no more than prostitutes who go where ever the money is better. The T&A are reporting news as they sell a 'newspaper'. BCFC are a small town club who need to trade to keep afloat. Be thankful Wells gave you some good memories and has shown some profit on resale.

But the T&A didn't provide a report from any other recently signed goalscorer did they? You say they have to print what they think will sell papers. How will a story about a footballer forcing a move from a club that gave him a lifeline a couple of years ago, sell more papers??? He forced the club's hand with his behaviour and lost the club several thousands in the process.

He's moved on, we've moved on and I would expect the majority of readers of the T&A are no longer interested....!

Bunch of **** CRYBABIES.. First of all I am not from Bermuda, I wish though.
Wells played his part. If he never played for Bradford I promise the club will not be in div 1. That's is guaranteed. You can deny it if you like. You believe Hanson, Jones, Meredith, CONNELL , McHugh and co. would've bought this club up????? Are you FU6YING SERIOUS.
The Bradford fans would've been **** is Wells renewed his contract and left next year, you all would've been **** if he stayed 4 more years and left. He paid his dues, so why you all acting like you hate him, Last month you were all in love with him.
Blame the coaches for not utilizing the team you HAD. Why not play more attacking soccer from jump, why is the coach always lumping the ball up field instead of playing possession from the back, Oh I know why, the whole **** team is TOO **** SLOW, So if you lose possession back there its almost a guaranteed goal against. ...

Food for thought, you ever thought of the coach has run out of ideas, sometimes its only so far a coach can take you... You all sure as hell should be praising
Wells,
His team in Bermuda should be the ones upset, not you. They got **** NOTHING and he came through their ranks. He is not a Yorkshire dude so why does that silly **** derby crap matter to him. Get a life you immature people and grow the hell up..... GOOD LUCK NAHKI, Oh I forgot he won't see this because he's helping Hudds to GET PROMOTED now.. At least you all have Gary Jones, YOUR MAN OF THE **** YEAR, WHO WON ALL THE TROPHIES... A **** joke, Snubbed Wells that's what you get.... RELEGATION LOOMING LOL!!!!!!!!

Please will the t and a not report on wells no bradford city fans care any more. Wells has shown he has no ambition and is only at huddersfield for their money. He has moved to a team with a smaller ground, a smaller fan base and smaller average crowds. Wells could have moved to any bigger club and he would have gone with his head held high. Instead he cuts a deal with huddersfield and goes from hero to zero overnight. Wells is just there for the money and if a bigger club like Blackburn come in from him then he will leave huddersfield just as Rhodes did.

There is an excellent piece on the Width of a Post blog about Wells. I advise all to read it before spouting vitriol and doom and gloom on this portal. BCFC is a business not our toy to play with. Players have a very short career even if they avoid injury so why is everyone whining because the boy went elsewhere. We got him for nothing. He helped us get out of debt, play at Wembley twice and get promoted. Now we have money to cover the shortfall and buy another striker to boot plus all kinds of add ons. I hope he scores a hat full for Huddersfield . I hope they have to write a check every week for the next two years because that would mean he would soon play for a premiership club and we get another big check for at least what he was sold for this week. Good luck to him! I wish him well. Without him we would still be in league 2.

If you actually read it says "by Sports Desk", not Simon Parker. Its probably a generic article that appears on all relevant Newsquest websites that the T&A might specifically not have any control over.

That is just the average for all who turn up. You have been in a higher division (sometimes two higher divisions) throughout the last five years and have been getting "more away fans" coming through the door. You are still getting more away fans so the gap is now cavernous.

The article is clearly mischievous and intended to sell the paper by causing a reaction from City fans about the unexpectedly low transfer fee. Good luck to Wells, his reasons for leaving are his busness and do not reflect badly on City. However the low transfer fee is of concern and City fans are right to question why our star player was sold in such a hurry and for less than market value.

Please will the t and a not report on wells no bradford city fans care any more. Wells has shown he has no ambition and is only at huddersfield for their money. He has moved to a team with a smaller ground, a smaller fan base and smaller average crowds. Wells could have moved to any bigger club and he would have gone with his head held high. Instead he cuts a deal with huddersfield and goes from hero to zero overnight. Wells is just there for the money and if a bigger club like Blackburn come in from him then he will leave huddersfield just as Rhodes did.
what a load of crap, Huddersfield on cheap ticket deals like Bradford have in league 1 had 16,000 season ticket holders. As for Jordan Rhodes, you don't know what you are talking about, there paying premiership wages for him. If Blackburn don't go up this year, he wont be there. And as for clubs going along, Huddersfield have one of the best set ups in Yorkshire with new state of the art training facilities. As for the size of the two clubs, who's in league 1 and who's in the championship? End of!

Bunch of **** CRYBABIES.. First of all I am not from Bermuda, I wish though.
Wells played his part. If he never played for Bradford I promise the club will not be in div 1. That's is guaranteed. You can deny it if you like. You believe Hanson, Jones, Meredith, CONNELL , McHugh and co. would've bought this club up????? Are you FU6YING SERIOUS.
The Bradford fans would've been **** is Wells renewed his contract and left next year, you all would've been **** if he stayed 4 more years and left. He paid his dues, so why you all acting like you hate him, Last month you were all in love with him.
Blame the coaches for not utilizing the team you HAD. Why not play more attacking soccer from jump, why is the coach always lumping the ball up field instead of playing possession from the back, Oh I know why, the whole **** team is TOO **** SLOW, So if you lose possession back there its almost a guaranteed goal against. ...

Food for thought, you ever thought of the coach has run out of ideas, sometimes its only so far a coach can take you... You all sure as hell should be praising
Wells,
His team in Bermuda should be the ones upset, not you. They got **** NOTHING and he came through their ranks. He is not a Yorkshire dude so why does that silly **** derby crap matter to him. Get a life you immature people and grow the hell up..... GOOD LUCK NAHKI, Oh I forgot he won't see this because he's helping Hudds to GET PROMOTED now.. At least you all have Gary Jones, YOUR MAN OF THE **** YEAR, WHO WON ALL THE TROPHIES... A **** joke, Snubbed Wells that's what you get.... RELEGATION LOOMING LOL!!!!!!!!
My reaction when reading this - Wow, just WOW?

Do you realise how immature that whole post looks? Are you a friend of Wells or a family member? Only this sort angers comes from some personal attachement, surely?

In response though, I think you have truly misinterpreted the entire 'saga'. Please do not confuse our (the fans) reaction to his move with thinking that we dont realise we wouldnt be here in L1 without him.

I like alot of fans resigned myself to accepting that he was leaving well before he jan window however, like those if not all fans i was disheartened to hear he had joined Town, if for no other reason than the fact they our consider our rivals, like leeds and now maybe even Rottherham. Because of this I was angry with the board for doing so......However, when it came to light that Nahki had held the club to ransom my feelings have significantly towards.

It is this rreason that fans now 'hate' him as you put so eloquantly, where once we worshipped him. It is his actions towards our club that have cut the deepest, not joing Huddersfield.

***
To the Town fans posting on here. Why? Take pride in the fact that you have purchased a fantastic player for peanuts. A player who will, no doubt, change your season. Ill give him two years max before he leaves you, probably for over 6mil, and well thank you for it because we will recieve a large portion as a sell on fee.

Yes you have better facilities and are at present in the championship but lets take that in to context. Over the past thirteen years your history has looked like this:

Division 1 (Second Tier): 2000–01
Division 2 (Third Tier): 2001–02 – 2002–03
Division 3 (Fourth Tier): 2003–04
League One (Third Tier): 2004–05 – 2011–12
Championship (Second Tier): 2012–13 – present

Through which Bradford City have seen 2 years in the Premiership, relegations to the four tier (like your selves) a recent promotion and made history in getting to the Capital One Final, beating 3 full strength premier teams along the way.

You spent 8 season in league one. i assure you it wont take us 8 years to get to the championship and offer to you the same statment i offer my Leeds friends.

"Bradford City will be in the Championship before Huddersfiled and Leeds United reach the premiership"

T&A what are you doing posting this??? You really need to reevaluate your 'Sports Desk' and I would happliy put myself forward to replace your Bradford City representative reporter.
