Pretty good

Really like this guy. He is a no frills solid pro. Reminds me of Adam Eckersley/Alan Maybury in that respect but a bit better.

After some of the huddies we've had at full back recently he is a welcome addition. Can see him becoming a favourite.

Solid signing.

Left back still a problem. The Man City cripple, or the Polish bouncer Monty Umm

I think the steadiness of Smith helps John Souttar just as much as having Berra alongside him. With the shite we've had at full back the centre backs were often pulled across to cover when Rherras/Sowah got beaten and inevitably led to mistakes

Second most interceptions in the league so far this season apparently Pretty good

Really assured player and never looks uncomfortable. Great first touch as well.

Hopefully when he gets back to RB and gets more used to the guys around him we'll see him breaking forward a bit more often as well.

I rate this guy highly, solid player, quite good on the ball, can use both feet, defends well, gets up and down the park all day, decent shot on him either foot, good delivery. Can't really fault him tbh.

Positive move. He’s back in the international fold and is very reliable and consistent at this level.

Reminds me a bit of Grainger, very consistent just not the most glamorous player in the world.

Very good player to have as can basically play across the entire defence and can move up into midfield if desperate. I didn't really like him when he first joined but really come round to him.

He rarely has a bad game, and when he's playing well with confidence GodIsGod
