Left Back: Andrew Robertson

I’ve been a little disappointed with Robertson in these last few games. Don’t get me wrong, he has been decent. He has been better than any reserve left back that we’ve had for a decade or more. For most of the last 10 years we’ve been worrying about our first choice left back let alone the backup.

While I am glad he has been decent our system needs more than decent, solid and dependable from our full backs. They have to be incisive too. They have to be able to cause problems for 90 minutes.

He is a fantastic crosser of the ball but unless Dominic Solanke is playing they are wasted. Even with Solanke that is not the way we want to play; pinging it to a big man. He needs to find some of the confidence he has shown for Scotland.

For his country he is more willing to get forward and he is picking his runs better. If we could see a few strikes like he had against Lithuania we good feel a bit better about him. He needs to find that level of production if he is to truly challenge Alberto Moreno for the first team place.
