As you’ve failed to realise even though I’ve pointed it out I’m talking about his playing career.

Just because he was lucky to be here at that time. He was Leveins pet project, if he’d got a decent LB Maybury would e played ahead of him. Burley wanted him out but got Tall instead. It doesn’t make him a success. One cap for Scotland is not great really. 
Great managerial career so far, apart from his derby record which defined his first term. 


I think you’re being a bit churlish here. He wasn’t a world beater, but he has had a reasonably successful career, which is even more impressive since he wasn’t the most gifted player.

 

Scotland cap

Scottish Cup

Group stages of UEFA Cup where he scored

Second place and quite a few third place finishes

Champions League Qualifiers

Fair few other European games 


That’s not bad at all. :thumbsup:

Probably, considering how limited he was. I only mentioned that playing in front of Fysass was better than playing in front of him.

Thing is though, he knew his own limitations and has said as much. If you haven't already, check out his interview on "scarves around the funnel" podcast. His career is a testament to his intelligence and it is serving him well (so far) in his management career. Yeah he wasn't amazing but he had a better career than you or I ...

Christ, no arguments there! Imagine being Miko and Cesny when they first arrived - Neilson and Jamie McAlistair, if I remember right. At that point they were probably coming to blows with each other to be the one playing in front of Robbie. :lol:

I didn’t question his intelligence, just his ability which as everyone has admitted was limited. Better football career than us definitely.

For someone with limited ability Robbie had a brilliant career. Including time at Leicester. As a manager he has so far been nothing short of fantastic for Hearts. We romped a Championship that included both Rangers and Hibs. He left us 2nd in the SPL. Those who moan about losing to Hibs in the cup need a reality check. We had a decent record against Hibs and Rangers last season but look where we have ended up. Of course I would like to beat Hibs every time bit it simply wont happen. Occasional loss to Hibs and be near top of SPL? Yes please

I celebrated that wildly, didn’t do much for us though. I remember him abusing the fans at ER during a diddy cup semi defeat to Motherwell. Seems to be doing well as a coach now, funny that 🤔😆.

What you wanting a medal? Why feel the need to attack an another poster, personally speaking i don't give a toss what you post on here, but if I post a bit of info up and it doesn't come off that means I've had a mare. 

 

Really does show what you know about football, because if you knew anything about football, you would know clubs speak to many players and enquire etc, some come off some don't.

 

That's football if you want top ITK you can have it,like genuinely mate i could not care 😂i certainly don't come on a forum to have a go at other posters. 

 

Must have way to much time on your hands, like genuinely have i ever quoted you 😂 if you tell a bit of info and it's come off then fair play, certainly wouldn't have a go at you if you didn't.

 

So petty man all the best 👍

Well said, think this ITK chat on the forum is very cringeworthy. 
 

I have someone that shares info not on here from numerous sources - some that come off and some don’t, all is much appreciated and I choose to leave it at that.

 

I think it’s always excellent to hear from guys like you willing to go out your way to put the rumours out on here. 
 

The back patting/personal digs and sh** patter (nothing to do with ‘transfers for Our club’) clogging up the thread from some make it tedious at times though.

 

cheers and keep posting, some of us really enjoy reading it

Popescu has been officially announced as signing for us. Not by us though, but by Dinamo Bucaresti.

 

Hickey is set to sign for Bologna either a month ago, in the last week, yesterday after getting his 2nd test back, which moved to today once it was clear nothing was announced yesterday. Personally I think it’s pretty safe to say he’ll be announced as a Bologna player in the next 1 to 2 decades...

 

Other than that just pure speculation that gets debunked within hours of posting as supposed ITK tidbits or complete wishful thinking of mediocre hypothetical signings.

 

Fun times.

Definitely need one or two guys with a bit about them in the team.

 

A midfielder that gets fired in about it would be nice too 😆

Been saying the same regarding a midfielder. We lacked a lot of qualities in the midfield last season and someone who's going to cause a few bruises was one of them. 

 

Edit: I am delighted Robbie seems to have added width. Will make a huge difference.

Who knows? By the way, rather than replying on the other thread. Can't you just mirror your stream from the laptop to the TV without relying on an ethernet cable? Is your signal not stable enough to do that?

I didn't get Robbie while he played for us because all I could see were his relative limitations going forward and on the ball.

But he was a right back, not an attacking mid, I was looking at the wrong attributes. As soon as he left we started getting hammered down our right side, and I clicked to how effective he'd been, how well he'd understood the position, where he needed to be and when.

 

Sometimes you don't know what you've got til it's gone, that was me with Robbie.
