Clearly a talented footballer but bar a few flicks here and there has not yet delivered 

 

Unbeaten since he came into the team mind you. Him and McKay have transformed our attacking options.

Very talented player but definitely played below his best today. Thought he would have been pulling out all of the stops to impress Gerrard.

Still unbeaten, Robbie still proving you wrong, random thread to deflect away from you being shown up. 

I.E. you are spewing

Agree to an extent. Not sure what "delivered" is meant to mean though. Not a prolific scorer, and like most of the team for 60mins, the game passed him by.

 

Think he'll be benched for Dundee actually, unless there's a clause from Liverpool stating he must play.

 

Very talented, no doubt. Confidence isn't an issue. Maybe just a goal's needed to have him influence the game more. McKay's offered more since arriving, IMHO.

It's still to really click for him IMO.

 

We are in for a treat when it does though.

Do we really want to judge a player based on an away at the Bronx!

 

Lads a talent. Let’s enjoy him while we have him!

I see this as a bonus. We've done great so far without him reaching expectations.

 

There is definitely more to come from him. When it does I suspect it will be well worth the wait. 

 

As I say, it's great to know Woodburn and one or two others have still to get up to speed. 

 

A great place to be!!

Robbie has proven me wrong 👍as far as deflection goes Woodburn is not really cutting it unless you represent him

Have seen enough to know that he is a player, of course he hasn't hit form yet but I reckon he just needs a goal and will be flying.

Same as McKay, just needs to add a goal or two. Both have been really good though - intelligent, creative, skillful footballers.

I'd say he's been absolutely excellent so far.

 

However today I got the feeling he was desperate to shine and do well meaning he didn't relax and play naturally. Basically tried to hard meaning it just didn't flow for him today. Meh, it'll come!

We're in the rather nice position of having serious attacking strength in all areas of the pitch.

Opposition coaches have rightly targeted Ben as our best option. He's getting doubled up on and pressed constantly.

Rangers did a good job on all our players today for 60 minutes.

 

But...Wee Boab has players with big baws and rather good ability at his disposable now 🙂

 

Ben is a class act.

It was strange that he was called up for Wales when he signed and made a sub appearance..yet was completely left out this time around.

Didn’t have a great game today but he didn’t shy away from tracking back and doing his bit for the team.

 

I think days like today will show the likes of Beni and Woodburn what this league is all about and hopefully (in Woodburn’s case) it’s worth signing for a club like Hearts over a mid table championship team. It’s not the cake walk most down south think it is.

He needs a goal and a bit of confidence, also players moving so he can find them, not exactly seen a lot of the ball especially today. 
He will come good I’m sure of that, harsh as it is to say it but once he gets used to the lower standard of player he’s playing with.

Indeed it was, who knows what hoes in these squads as Boyce isn’t being picked and Smith wasn’t on the bench for NI 🤔🤷🏾‍♂️? Oh and Stephen O’Donnel is still in the Scotland Squad.

Don’t think he’s playing with enough intensity. Not overly influential in last two matches at Tynie. On the fringes too much. 
 

Best half for me was v Hibs. Marked difference in intensity from first half to 2nd.

It’s possible to both think he has shown quality as well as feel he’s not contributed enough. These opinions are not mutually exclusive. You can tell the guy has quality, but if we’re being entirely honest if his name wasn’t one we had heard of and if he wasn’t coming from Liverpool I suspect he wouldn’t be held in as high regard and his performances in a Hearts shirt to date would be criticised more than they currently are. Not saying he’s been bad or anything, but he’s not been above average either. But I’m okay with that, as if there’s more to come like there looks like there should be then I’m looking forward to it happening.

Didn't they both ask not to be considered?

Boyce asked not to be called up because of his new born

Boyce has asked not to be selected for the last 2 international squads because he doesn't want to leave his Mrs alone with a new born and Smith withdrew from the squad because he's had a couple niggling injuries and he thought it would be best to let his body rest this time round.

Yeah I just edited it. 
Didn’t see anything about Smith. 
I don’t really read those rags tbh and hadn’t seen it mentioned on here.

Boyce has asked not to be picked for the foreseeable future and Smith asked to be left out for Switzerland and Bulgaria

Clearly got talent but agree he's not hit the heights we expected yet, which is actually quite exciting.

While he hasn't scored and he had one 'off' game today; it's undeniable that he's a very intelligent player and creates pockets of space which give our other players some room to maneuver.

 

In my opinion, whether he scores or not even if he just keeps doing what he's doing and gives other's more goal scoring opportunities then he's a massive credit to the team.

Must admit I expected him to rise to the occasion today more than he did.

 

I like the guy and I think he is part of the oil that keeps us moving but I am expecting big moments from him but we haven’t had any yet.

The lad’s not played much football and has had some injuries, so I suspect he’s slowly getting back to match sharpness.  It’ll click soon, he’s a talent.

Thinking more on it; and I'd have to look again, but I wonder as he was the Captain of Gerrard's Liverpool team, did Gerrard get his player's to pay more attention to Woodburn. 

 

He more than most, would know exactly what he's capable of given the space. Admittedly Rangers closed down very well in the 1st half. But he & McKay were our two most creative players on the pitch at KO, and if Woodburn was negated, then it cut off one major outlet in the midfield link to Boyce.

 

He'll come good. He's too good not to.

Talented, playing well, just needs a goal.? all things said about Tony Watt during his time at Hearts.

 

Woodburn is a beautiful footballer though. I've no idea why it hasn't really clicked for him yet

We were at Ibrox playing the champions

 

Its hard for me to criticize  any player today when we returned with a draw and still unbeaten 

 

Lets be realistic, we are doing just grand

 

Just back up

 

Alls good, lets enjoy

Hes doing well and for someone thatseems maybe at 50-75% of his best hes still head and shoulders above many in the league, think he could do with a moment out the spotlight and give Gino a chance v Dundee though?

Is it not part of the deal that Klopp insists he plays hence the problem with the delay in signing, the pressure on the guy to perform must be enormous just hope he can relax and let his skill do the talking
