Phil Roberts is one of the most frustrating players I have ever come across (Even more so that Dominic Shimmin or Darren Young). He has the potential and the ability to be a fantastic player at this level, yet seems to be throwing it all down the drain with his attitude and the way he is conducting his private life (Drinking and Partying).

Do you think that PH should cut his loses now and pay off the remainder of his contract and bring someone else into the club that would do be willing to play for the Jersey( At least their wages).... or should he be given another chance to prove himself?

Voted yes, he's had plenty time to show us what he's made of, he can waste his talent if he wants, but not with us is my take.

It's frustrating when you see the way he played against Celtic last season, and yet even 'Alloa' turned around and said you can have him back as he is a waste of space.

Went 'don't know' but that's not really the case, if we could pay him off for a reasonable sum then I'd go for that but if he stands firm and holds out for his full wages then unless he's a hindrance in the dressing room I'd keep him around, you never know when an extra player (in a position we're thin on the ground in) will be handy.

If he's on e.g. a grand a week that would mean the club would need to pay him the best part of £50k to leave the club. A lot of money that we might not have right now. It's certainly hard to justify spending that kind of money to get rid of someone.

I would just leave him in the stand until the new year. If he hasn't got another club by the end of January then offer him £10k to walk away.

I voted yes but, if we pay off his contract then I don't see how that would create money to pay a new player.

Unless we agreed a reduced pay off, in which case if it meant a new face I would jump it the chance.

Unfortunately Roberts won't because his wages are going to spiral downward after his spell at Dens.

I can't see him being on a grand a week here at Dens.

I suspect that during the Jan transfer market he might be off, be told he is free to leave and find another club (As PH likes to do with players he doesn't see fit to wear the dark blue).

Given that he came from Falkirk and wasn't in any great demand, maybe £500 p/w is closer to the mark. The less he's on the easier the decision to pay him off I suppose.

There is no point paying a player to warm the subs bench or sit in the stand every week.

We should cut our losses and send him out on loan to a club in a lower league until January 2016 transfer window when he can be allowed to go and look for another club.

With out knowing the ins and outs of the situation it's impossible to say IMO.

If he's out boozing etc and showing a lack of professionalism then yes he should, however I wouldbe looking at a loan move for him instead of a pay off.

The reason he is still at dens is cause of the reasonably decent wages he will be on,theres no way he will go anywhere unless his contract is paid out in full.....a real bad signing from hartley

Not so much a bad signing imo but a very poor decision to give him a two year deal and that is not in hindsight either.  He was worth a punt but he had the sort of background where it was down to him to prove his worth to us and not the other way around.  Greg Stewart is the perfect example of how it should work - prove you're capable and you get a better deal.

One good half against Celtic and a jammy deflection against Partick are all he has produced in his time here.  Is there another mug out there that will think they can get it out of him?  Maybe but I doubt it.

Bit disappointed to see the "drinking and partying" passed off as gospel rather than the messageboard rumour that it is.

Don't know enough about the situation myself so have voted don't know.
