As I understand, to play today you had to be signed by 12pm yesterday (midday). The fact as Twitter proved Robinson didn't even know anything about the move till gone 6pm would suggest there is no way he could of signed by 12pm and I think Turner's comments back this up. I imagine this is why Torres was not in the Chelsea squad?

I believe that because Jake is on loan he was eligible to play. If he had signed permenantly he would not have been able to play. When we signed Exodus from Posh earlier in the season was he not signed on the day of the Crewe game
We got done in the welsh cup for something similar We had renewed a loan and even though Ron green had played for us for months they had us on a petty technicallity saying he hadn't been signed in time to play
A salutory lesson in reading threads to the end before posting. i was just about to rant about all the idiots on here who don't know the rules thinking they knew better than a professional football club.
