Jury out.

 

Feel maybe another djoum type character here where get a element of fans that think he amazing and everyone else left scratching heads why.

 

Early days though so have to give everyone a chance

Thought he was the worst of the forward players last night

 

A comment that would never have been made of the Terrible trio.  Just imagine saying that Alfie Conn (Sr of course) was the "worst" of the three.  Or  comparing Dave MacKay with John Cummings and saying John was the "worst " of the two, or Colquhoun was the "worst" compared to John Robertson. 

 

Entirely misleading and inaccurate use of the word.

 

He had a mixed bag but was key in some of the goals and put over a few superb crosses, and held up the ball regularly in tight positions, keeping possession for the team.

A lot of potential. Occasionally looks as though he's trying to do too much...maybe reduce the touches and quicken things up just a wee bit - he looks well capable of being a top player!

 

Bigger test for him in a couple of weeks time, and I think he'll more than rise to the 'challenge' of the wee team.

Won the corner that leads to the second goal. Plays the dummy that leads to the 3rd goal. Lays off a perfectly weighted pass for the 5th goal. Drags his man away and out of position for the 6th goal. The boy was a solid 7 out of 10.

I thought he looked very good. Occasionally slack pass, but we saw this from Kingsley and others too.

 

He looked quick, strong, and keen to get the ball in the box throughout. He’s a huge improvement on what we’ve had out wide for the past few years!

The most important thing about Roberts is he helps bring balance to the team and enables us to be a threat on both wings. He's done some good things so far in terms of assisting for goals and has done nothing wrong that I can think of, although no doubt people determined to moan about something will comb through the footage of games to find something.

Ginnelly has a bit about him. He could probably play for us in the SPL if we were a top 3 side. Not so sure I'd say the same about Roberts thus far tbh. He looks good for the Championship though.

You have to remember that some players take longer than others to get fully up and running. They are all different.

Very rarely has a Hearts player started off their career either poorly or averagely and went on to do well for us or move onto a bigger club.

 

Roberts is an ok player but he will move onto a smaller club once he’s done a season or two with us.
