Now. When he plays for Scotland he shoots in the first half on the one where he makes the weird cut back. Heís almost deferential in those circumstances for us. When he clicks onto the fact he has a right to shoot first and ask questions later heíll contribute goals. Heís somehow fixated on assists at his own expense - ish that an outlandish shuggeshtion?

To be fair to the lad him and Trent have a thing going on, priorities n that.

Too old for heroes but he's my current favourite player. Watching games on TV last season, I couldn't understand how Robertson was getting a song so soon, then went to Anfield three times in six weeks and I understood.

He's like Joey Jones would have been if Roberto Carlos was his Dad, Serena Williams was his Mum, Steven Hawking was his teacher, Shankly was his mentor and he was adopted by Braveheart. 

I think this is genuine man love.

I feel exactly those feelings too

And that's why I keep them inside

'cause this bear, can't bare the world disdain

And sometimes is easier to hide.

Than explain our guy love, that's all it is

Guy love he's mine I'm his

There's nothing gay about it in our eyes.

You ask me 'bout this thing we share...

...and he tenderly replies.

It's guy love...

...between two guys.

We were robbed of two penalties. Challenge with Mane on to the Palace player's arm & another with Keita where the Palace player clearly stopped the ball with his hand.

I think he was like most of the players last night, below their best. Donít think itís a fatigue thing, possible heís had the bug a few have had?

Plus I think Leicester set up so as not to allow him space/opportunity to get forward

I actually think it is fatigue - be it mentally or physical. He has been off the boil recently and his rash challenges are on the up. It is unlike him and it worries me coming to the business end of the season as we have no adequate replacement at his level. I think he is one player whose time hasn't been managed well. I thought he was too conservative going forward.  Not his usual self.

The conditions didn't suit him, if he played his normal game he would have broken a limb. He's close but he's not Superman.

No fatigue, no tiredness and it's forecast to be relatively mild in London on Monday night when normal service will be resumed.

Loved that moment when he beat about three or four players before releasing Mane who was fouled. Did he get the assist for Mane's goal as well or was it touched before it reached him?

One rash tackle doesn't make him a bad player, we should have defended the free-kick better.

Yeah, to be fair that's a pretty ridiculous comment. If his performances are going to suffer, the fact that he's a new dad doesn't make it better for our title push.

That challenge would have broken the internet if Moreno had done it. Needs to be a one-off.

We've normally done well coping with the 2nd ball, our offside traps have worked to perfection, yesterday things just didn't click so well for us.

The "rash" is one of those things. It happens. Moreno doesn't come into this equation save for the fact he should have been given more game time (in terms of stealing minutes from Robertson as opposed to a starter) as Robertson"s consistency has gone off the boil. He can do great things in a game and is also now prone to " mistakes / being caught out etc"  where previously you just couldn't find it in his game. He was consistently very good. Being a new Dad may be a factor but it simply doesn't detract from his performance which lately hasn't been of his usual high standard. Where previously he was solid as hell - now there is doubt. Unfortunately- there is a big drop whoever deputizes.

I actually thought he was one of our better players, just unfortunate he conceded an untypical rash challenge in a dangerous area.

I am different here. I can live with and excuse the "rash" challenge. Fouls are conceded at any time. As a team we simply didn't defend the 2nd / 3rd ball. I felt that his all round game going forward was not great. Should have offered more. Too often he took the easy option to recycle the ball by checking back when he may have looked to take his opponent on. Only much later he began the overlapping run - too little to late. Granted-there were times when he wasn't fed and a through ball was on. We simply needed more urgency from the entire time.


 
For one, dont keep crying and keep him awake through the night.

Perhaps if you had fed him a warm milk bottle, he would have sleep right through the night despite my tears.

He's sublime, i'm really shocked at that challenge as its not like him at all, he rarely dives in and tends to stand his man up only comitting when he has a good chance of coming out with the ball at his feet, was odd to see him do the opposite when he had help as well

It was weird as it really looked like he (and I know I did at home) had a really bad feeling from the resulting free kick.

Robertson has looked tired at times this season but hopefully the schedule opens up enough now that he can play every game (lets say 18 more games in 3.5 months including Europe). If he can't, what is the plan B? Milner?

I think Robbo is very good at what he does but has limitations. He is very one footed and as a result plays the ball back in to midfield far too often. He is far better when we have a progressive right back and most of the play goes down the right flank. When the left flank is expected to make the play like the the other night he struggles a bit. He isn't going to take his opposite full back on and his dependence on his left peg and his preference to play the ball back infield means his stance is too closed to play the ball down the line.

We prefer to suck teams across to the left and then look for the long switch out to Trent which suits Robbo perfectly but without Trent on the right we struggle to get width.

He does seem a bit one-footed I agree. There again lefties always do to us right-footers and, by extension, we often overlook how one-footed our lot are). But Robertson is not confined to going on the outside. Such is his pace and ball control that he can - and often does - come inside his man and then drive through the middle. Last week this resulted in Robertson taking out a couple of Leicester players and slipping through Mane who was promptly hacked down by the last defender. It's by no means the first time that Robertson has been shown inside and spectacularly exploited the space.

For sheer effectiveness and for trying to play out of his skin every game, he is a shoe-in for our Player of the Season now.
It's nice to see a defender getting the praise that is so often only given to goal scorers.



Can't remember the last LB we had that was as reliable as him.........Aurelio???
And Andy is better than Aurelio imo.
