    Completely agree. He's a better player than people on here give him credit for. He's only 20. He will get better.

    Robson will be our left back no doubt about it,we just do not have the money to sign him as a squad player,the proof of the pudding is in the eating,he would have been away with Fraser IF any club out there thought he was good enough to play at a higher level.In my opinion Fraser will play in our top league or in England next season because he is a footballer.
    I am not writing Robson off yet but at this present time he is an also ran Championship player.

    Good summary GB. Thing with Fraser is you feel a good coach will make him a better player, jury still out on young Robson. A good coach. (aye, I know) would spend time with him this summer, put an arm round him then wind him up, motivate him, show him videos of great left backs, put him through his paces relentlessly, tell him he only has one chance to be a footballer then it's over. See if he can get a lot more out of the boy. Either will or won't. As others have mentioned though he needs better protection in front of him.

    Just sit him down in front of the tele this weekend to show him where his predecessor is now. Only Jamie can put in the effort to start the whole thing off!

    Sean Bryne of Livingston mentioned again. The mighty Falkirk also mentioned as being after him. A midfielder that can actually tackle would be nice though.

    Perhaps I am one of the few that see something in Robson. There is a player in there I think. Has made a lot of mistakes , no doubt about it. Needs to knuckle down, work hard and concentrate. Improve defensively in particular, get doon that wing and cross the ba. He has that skill. Cmon Jamie prove a lot of the negativity is wrong.

    He need look no further than Andy Robertson, who has worked at his game and by all accounts grounded. Further back there is Malpas, Gough and Holt (right backs), who just got on with the game. Inspiration from great players like Narey etc. albeit different positions should be taken. If you aspire to just 10% of his ability you will be a good player

    Agree with you and Chick above. What I was meaning as well is that as long as a player shows the motivation to improve, a good coach should be able to get that improvement out of the player. Robson has either been kept because we think he might command a fee at some point or because we think he can improve. It's now down to the coaching team to get that improvement out of the boy. Let's see if they do.

    I think it's wrong to assume every player that wants to improve has that ability. However, in Jamie's case I'm sure he will as his learning is more to do with what it means to be a professional sportsman than anything else.

    Most professional players that want to improve will show some improvement in some aspects of their game if they're coached right and motivated by the coach.

    First of what some think will be anything from 15 to 20 players we require.

    As far as i see, we still need a first choice back line plus 2 to challenge for places. Then midfield we need 3 until Fyvie can establish himself along with 2 wingers.

    Up front we need another 2 and i heard from an unlikely source that one of those places will be filled by Si Murray! I think they were getting their Dundees mixed up though!

    Well the guy who told me that Robson was staying last week also told me that Murray was coming back. However I seen hibs might miss out on that boy Kamberi which I would imagine could scupper that deal.

    Happy with Clark. 100% proven at this level.

    Works hard. On face of it a good signing, Csaba!

    Good signing. A goal every 2 games with a team like Dunfermline where his midfield support wasn’t great is very promising

    To be honest any player that puts himself about and has high energy is a type of player we need just now.
    Good goal ratio, promising first signing.

    A good pickup from Laszlo.

    Time will tell, unfortunately Laszlo hasn't proven much himself yet
