However, plenty of players will target him physically.

A perfect example of this we'll discover this Saturday, it'll be like history repeating itself.

The main fear I have is more the fact that its always been innocuous circumstances behind the knee injuries. Doesent really matter about being targeted, it's the type of injury that just happens. 

Fair play to him though. Can't imagine how much of a toll its taken on him mentally and it must be in the back of his mind all the time. To have the guts to come back a third time is remarkable and I'm absolutely desperate for him to succeed, incredibly nice guy and a great footballer.

Aye ok.

And if you’re looking for further feedback, the commentary wasn’t up to much either

Surely no one believes he's indicating Vaughan? Clearly passing on information regarding Armstrong. 

Clearly not clearly, otherwise no one would see anything different.

People beleive in flat earth and they're fucking idiots aswell.

Just watched it for the first time this morning and didn’t think there was anything in it at all.

If he’d been meaning Vaughan he presumably would have pointed to both knees.

I think what Neilson was saying to his player is that if Armstrong cuts onto his left foot, stick your hand down by your knee to stop the ball and it'll be fine - the referee will think it hit your midriff.

Man calling people "idiots" includes spelling mistake and made up word in one sentence. Idiot.

*I do NOT believe the earth is flat. It's clearly more of a turkey twizzler shape.

Seriously though it doesn't look good but I'm sure there's nothing in it?

There's some degree of paranoia at work here. For a start it's quite clearly Armstrong he's indicating, not Vaughan and for a second he doesn't point to his knee at all. He slaps his own left thigh. So unless he was suggesting that his players should aim to give Armstrong a dead leg I think we can safely say he was either indicating that Armstrong is left footed, or passing on some coded message which could mean anything at all for all anyone here knows.

Of course there's paranoia; 1) It's Vaughan, whose knees are "questionable" 2) Robbie's actions were more directed at when Vaughan was entering, but I can see that he might have been looking more at his player than Vaughan 3) Robbie's statements pre-game were pretty stiff.

I'm willing to give hin the benefit, but would like the question asked...if you think that's paranoia, I think BBC Scotland also changed its broadcast plans recently...

I could've constructed that post by slapping my tiny tadger off my mobile screen, barely pulling a word together and it still would've been less ridiculous than the ones claiming that Neilson is telling his players to take Vaughan by the knees.

At least your Hearts team did the business, and got their much needed vengeance against one of the clubs that sealed your doom.
