    So we've gone for a 4-2-3-1 and the first thing to do is to pick a goalkeeper. Poll will be open for approx 24 hours and please state if you want one who isn't an option.

    I know SKD wasn’t technically the greatest keeper out of the 4, but he deserves to be picked for his loyalty during the administration period, when he could have gone to WHU but chose to stay with us and take the consequences. Top man.

    Yeah I've had to go for Kelv too ahead of Artur. I did love Boruc too though, absolutely mental and a decent keeper.

    Favourite keeper rather than best keeper. Hmmm gotta be SKD then followed by Boruc because I loved his starfish one on one saves.

    I love Kelv, but it's got to be Artur for me.

    He had that x-factor, he was entertaining and I maintain that without him, we'd have gone down in our first season.

    Was capable of utterly superb saves and utterly bewildering gaffes. Loved watching him play! (which isn't something you can say often for a goalkeeper)

    For turning round and not signing for West Ham and driving back to us... SKD

    Boruc was better but SKD is getting my vote for staying, the Leeds game and just being Super.

    Yep, there's loads of reasons for Kelv. And if it was more than just 'who did you enjoy most' then it'd always be Kelv.

    But I enjoyed Artur. A lot. Goalkeepers are generally boring to me. :)

    Close between Kelvin and forster, but Kelvin for his loyalty alone.

    Hasn’t played a competitive senior game since 21 April 2015! I would love, after we have clinched the title next March or April, to let him have a couple of games just to see if he’s as bad as people say.

    I think SKD was a top man, and a good keeper, but I liked Artur because he was so entertaining, and a complete mentalist which I think is a must for a keeper. I don't think I ever really forgave Koeman for bringing in Forster as his intended number one and effectively forcing Boruc to look elsewhere for first team footie.
