Phil Robson

Nickname Weed Boy
Date Of Birth 8/9/82
Place Of Birth Edinburgh
Big Team Liverpool
Wee Team Hibs
Favourite Player Ever Jamie Carragher
Position Seems to be equally at home anywhere on the pitch, the lucky bugger - skill and pace to burn
Distinguishing Features Lack of appropriate footwear, more ginger hair than you'd find at a Baillie family gathering (shudder), a water bottle in his hand as he bosses the midfield, woolly hat (rapidly removed if a header seems imminent)

Bradley or Sean Slater out of 'EastEnders', Cardiff rugby player Paul Tito, Ron Weasley out of 'Harry Potter', Sideshow Bob out of 'The Simpsons', Ginger out of the Wildhearts, comedian Tim Minchin, posh comedian Jack Whitelaw, Tongan scrum half Taniela Moa and model Jade Thompson.

Any celebrity ginge, basically.

Battlecry Will let out a brief, strangled howl when one of his shots or passes goes astray - or when he's going up for a header and wants to distract the keeper ...
Claim To Fame

Reckons he makes it acceptable to be ginger - steady on, Phil!

Also (as far as we know) the only Real player ever to live in his car.

Blacking out Melrose (among other places) by putting his spade through an electricity cable.

Warmed up for the 2013 Winter League final by cycling from Lauder to Edinburgh. In an hour.
