Ryan Conroy does have ability. The only problem is, while it's all well and good being able to make a world cup pass, the game almost always completely passes him by. At this level you can get away with a lack of ability by sheer hard work, energy and putting yourself about. While I don't think he doesn't try, Conroy doesn't possess these skills so he struggles to impose himself on the game or make an impact as a result. He has the odd game where he absolutely strolls it and nobody can touch him but it really is once in a blue moon sort of stuff. As alluded to above he's got no defensive ability or discipline so he's not the sort of player you want in your team when you're backs to the wall or struggling at the wrong end of the table. Think at Airdrie that manifested itself mostly in 2017/18. A squad of youngsters and loanees, mainly battling to avoid relegation for most of the season, that was probably Conroy's worst season in a diamond. As an experienced player you'd have expected a lot more from him but he didn't step up at all. For a supposed set piece specialist they were invariably dreadful for the most part. Despite what the P&J article says, he really doesn't have the legs to play on the wing or at full-back anymore. He was badly exposed there and almost cost us 3 points when he got moved there one game so I wouldn't expect him to be the next Jamie Stevenson in that regard. 

He'll almost definitely score a 30-yard free-kick against us this season though.

Ryan Conroy is pish and finished the boy is a waste of space jogging around the park like he’s Lionel Messi and when was the last time he scored a free kick or hit a decent corner for us?

Let’s hope Conroy turns out to be a good signing and not another waste of money. He appears to have been less than brilliant at Airdrie and might have something to prove to his many critics.
