    Yeah true, he looks pretty decent, and imho good goalkeepers are few and far between. I think the last time I saw anyone of his level at my place, was when Gazziniga was here.

    It's much better experience than playing 'academy / reserves' ... Harvey Barnes had a great time at West Brom in the Championship a couple of years back, as did Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall at Luton last season ... arguably our best 2 performers today despite the loss ... brings the young'un on without doubt ...

    Fair play. Jury is out with me on Brenda, he took over a well managed side, I hate to say this to you, but he's starting to remind me of another Peter Taylor. <laugh>

    Peter Taylor would not have won us an FA Cup mate... we'd have gone out to your lot in round 3 ... he bought Ade Akinbiyi for a club record transfer fee ffs... still brings me out in hives and makes me shiver uncontrollably <laugh>

    Looks like my lot are heading in the right direction for L2 and goodbye to the leagues longest current tenant in L1....and I fooking hate L2, rather be in the NL, although that wish might come true as well at this rate.

    Soyuncu is utter trash these days and has been dodgy for the last year . Just mistake after mistake including just leaving Konsa to have a free header for Villas 2nd .

    What a guy.

    Had a spell where he got in the side here due to injuries to Lloris and Vorm and he was unreal, won like 3 MOTMs in 5 games and his form earned him an Argentina call up where he made his debut. Had a second spell in the side where he didn’t perform as well but wasn’t terrible, though then when Lloris turned you realised the quality difference but many of us liked Gazza. Was very good with the ball at his feet too, would’ve preferred keeping him at the club as Lloris’s backup.

    Looks like he’s lost the number one spot at Fulham in recent weeks, hopefully he can regain it.

    One advantage Gazza has as a keeper is he was a striker before becoming a goalkeeper, well that was my understanding when he came to the UK to play for my lot, and you could see it in him with his control of the ball on the ground. He was a fans favourite at our place too, however, the top tier is less forgiveful than a bunch of L1 fans, and the quality at the top was always going to be more challenging for him, so second keeper at the big clubs, was always going to be a fair outcome. I agree he could get his place back at Fulham, as always he just has to be patient.

    We need a result tonight after a couple of crap performances. Want to see Martinelli start ahead of auba, as he has been crap.

    If we play Martinelli through the middle he could tear your CBs a new one if we can keep feeding him the ball

    Yes. I’ll be the one not in an Arsenal or Spurs shirt.
