Bobby's Goal

21 January 2015

RETURNiNG to Home Park was “a no-brainer” for Bobby Reid.

The 22-year-old Bristol City midfielder has rejoined Argyle on loan for the remainder of the 2014-15 season after three previous loans with the Pilgrims earlier in the campaign.

His previous temporary deal expired at the beginning of the year, since when he has been back to Ashton Gate for discussions with Robins’ manager Steve Cotterill.

With City’s settled side well-placed for a promotion push from Sky Bet League 1, it was deemed in the interests of all parties for Bobby to continue his career at Home Park.

Bobby said: “I had a good spell here; I enjoyed it and we were doing well; and I wasn’t playing at Bristol, so it made sense. I think it’s a no-brainer, if I’m honest.

“They [Bristol] are doing well, so I can understand where they are coming from, but I don’t want to be there, doing nothing, wasting the rest of my season.

“The manager told me to work on a few things that I need to do for myself to improve my career.”

Bobby’s 13-game spell as a Pilgrim in the first half of the season saw the Pilgrims win six matches and draw four, climbing eight places up the Sky Bet League 2 table in the process.

A similar impact in the second half of the campaign would see Argyle challenging at the top of the division at the season’s climax.

“Winning games is the most important thing, and affecting the game, whether it’s goals, assists or being defensively solid,” said Bobby. “That’s what I’m trying to bring again.

“Hopefully, we can go on another run, but I’m just going to take it game by game and see what happens.

“There are 20 games left. We have got to really go for it and see where it takes us. You never know what will happen.

“I want to enjoy it. I enjoyed it when I was here before; that’s the main thing for me in coming back. There’s no point in me going to another club in the same league where I’ve got to start again and get used to everything there.

“Everything has been fine since I’ve been here. Everyone has welcomed me nicely.”
