There is going to be a time where he decides - screw it - I'm taking it all the way - he could really take his game to the next level if he starts confusing defenders as to what he plans to do.

According to James Pearce, the baby was born this past Thursday.

Said it before in this thread and I'll say it again, he should be an ideal role model/example for any player who gets released from a big club's Academy, particularly if its their boyhood club.

This lad is in serious danger of putting Scotland on the football map again. Despite being a small nation they have produced some of the worldís greatest players over the last 100 years. But, letís be honest, not for some while.....

But here is Robbo. Some effing footballer. I love him.

I just hope he can keep the level hes at and his fitness without getting burnt out before the season ends. He does cover an incredible amound of ground. When you look at all the qualities needed for a modern fullback you dont need to look at any other player as an example when robbo has it all.

But here is Robbo. Some effing footballer. I love him.

Terrifying thing is, as a Scot, it could so easily have been curtains for Robbo before his career even started. Worrying that he was released from Celtic as a lad for being Ďtoo smallí. If thatís the criteria for players, then itís no wonder the Scottish game has been in the dark ages for so long.

Robbo is the exception to Scottish football - just through sheer drive and determination is he where he is today. Sadly, he wonít be the rule. Spare a thought for the many other similarly talented lads who were dropped by the wayside due to Scottish coaches pathetic and neanderthal ways.

Robertson just seems to get better as the game grows on for me. Maybe it's because his opposite man just stops giving a fuck about trying to deal with him  ;D

In the 2nd half today he was fantastic, it reminded me of the Fulham game (I think) at home towards the end of last year. Just got better and better to add to my above point. He's done it in plenty of matches to be fair.

I think he's been the best fullback in world football since the start of 2018, probably beginning around that Everton match in the cup. What's mad is he'd probably not even played 10 matches. He is a monster of a footballer and is completely unique compared to any full backs I've ever seen here, and we've had some great ones.

Massively massively nitpicking, cos I agree with your sentiment, but he did allow the cross in that formed their best chance of the match (Fabinho blocked the shot brilliantly) in the second half. Not saying he wasn't very good today though

Hope so Roy. He gets into some terrific positions and is a very clean striker of the ball. If he can add goals to his game we can start talking about him as a Stevie Nicol or Chris Lawler.

But aside from that, it's the quickness with which he makes decisions now. That little dinked header infield in the first half was superb. It simply opened the pitch for his team.

I'm out of superlatives for that guy. He's such a good, smart player. Take a look how much he contributes to our build up play and then watch other left backs and you realise what a player he is.

I would bet good money that the vast majority of left backs, if they found themselves in tough positions Robbo finds himself (due to the other teams pressing/closing down) they would lose possession right away. But Andy's sharp and smart passing relieves pressure and offers us possibilities for a counter attack for example.

Best left back in the league.
Messi in fact doesn't have a recognizable trait.

Is right. I hope, however, that when Robbo finally hangs up his boots, he has even more winnerís medals.

(I also hope Robbo doesnít slightly tarnish his reputation by talking shite for a living).

Interestingly, in the interview he did with Si Ferry (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFuc2CuCZUc) he was a CM at Celtic and released as that. Just before he left Celtic, he filled in as a LB as they were short and that's what Queen's Park brought him in as.

Fine margins and all, but if Celtic hadn't been short that day he may not have gone to Queen's Park in the first place.

I go right back to Ronnie Moran's later years and his replacement Gerry 'Byrne 'Crunch, Crunch' was a superb left back defensively and offensively when needed so he became the first in a line of left back heroes for all of us. But while it is still relatively early days, I've got to say Robbo in my opinion is the finest I've ever seen up and down that left flank and for that matter all over the fucking show. I don't think I've watched a game where he's been less than 8 or 9 out of 10 and some of his defensive and attacking play to earn those sort of marks is I think beyond the level of the very best we've had in that position. Trigger, barney and JAR may have given us some stupendous moments that won us trophies but in relentless game on game excellence Robbo is outshining them all for me.

I absolutely fucking love this lad i reallly do.   If you would have told me after his first  few months at the club that in 12 months time he would be not only one of the  1st names on  the team sheet but one of our most important players then I would never have believed it.   His progression has been nothing short of sensational,  credit  to himself and the manager for polishing this diamond of a player.  His technique, speed of thought and movement plus his execution is incredible and undoubtedly up there with as the best LB/LWB in europe.
Take a bow Robbo, hope you  are here for many  years to come.
I have drummed it into our players time and again that they are privileged to play for you & if they didn't believe me then they believe me now!
