Godamn all season I've been asking to get Josh Sims in.

What happens when we do? Man of the match and we beat Tottenham 😎

Now please give the boy a decent run so that we can have a decent run.

Ok I feel I need to say that which noone seems to be talking about .

That Alex McCarthy isn't actually that good 🙌. Before anyone goes mental yes I am, like most, grateful he stepped in and helped us a bit when we needed him. However I feel the reason why so many think he's amazing is that we had to endure Forster's antics for so long that easy shots that should have been saved became wonder saves when McCarthy did them simply because he kept them out.

Point being, given a regular run in the team next season were get to see how regular he is, not as bad as Forster can be but not a decent premier league keeper either, just regular. Whether that will be enough or not were see 🤔😋.

He won't cost us as many points like Fraser did. And are you implying that any other keeper than Forster can make the saves McCarthy made? Guaranteed? Even so, the difference which he brought wasn't solely on the saves he made but also the presence he brings. He gets down better than big FF, he actually comes out for his crosses as well. He deserves his chance to start this season as first choice and the fact that you're already downplaying him before the season even begun is unmerited. I don't even see the point of this post to be honest. He's hardly done anything wrong so far.

Let’s not forget how awesome Forster was when he joined us. He had a career threatening injury in his first season which obviously adversely affected him in his confidence and decision making. Let’s hope a loan move will give him a spring board back to his form when he joined us and ultimately then give the manager serious goalkeeping options.

Not sure. To be fair I use to be Forster's No1 fan but think at first he use to terrify attackers with his presence. After a while teams figured he couldn't get down low and that was the end of him really. Like you say thouy hope he manages to somehow get past it.

I don't agree with that, I thought McCarthy was excellent last season. If he can replicate that, then I'd have no worries. On the other hand, there is always a chance he regresses back to the keeper he's always been, which is more of a backup.

I think the comparison of the two keepers is ridiculous. They are completely different types of keeper. Fraser great point blank shot stopper Alex all round excellent goalie. The reason in my opinion Fraser appeared to be so good when he arrived was that he hardly had a shot to save due to the superb back four in front of him, AM has done nothing wrong so far, I’m happy he is between the sticks.

6.) 09 Jul 2018 13:36:14
I don't agree. FF was poor for some time, given chance after chance and eventually dropped. AM has come in and has been given one chance, that he has taken. Would be delighted with Gunn but AM is first choice for me.

7.) 09 Jul 2018 14:18:55
I wasn't sure about AM at first. But he did all the simple stuff we were begging FF to do. Catching crosses, commanding his box, holding the ball and actually making some unbelievable saves in the last few games. Now will it continue? Who knows, but from what I've seen if him as a goalkeeper. I've got no worries right now about his ability. even if he does just do the basics well.

If we will sign Gunn, I think we have the best GK duo since Niemi and Jones!

Yeah @Vick I thought were all honest most premier league keepers would have saved the shots he faced. Everyone just got a little carried away because of the situation. To be fair he's a young English keeper and I do like him so hopefully saints/ game time will develop him. Just seemed people were getting carried away.

I remembered back some time he had a decent spell at reading and qpr (? ), played a blinder against liverpool for reading back then if I recall. I think he has a decent ability to be first choice but let's be honest anymore than that then he won't be here in the first place. After all he's signed for less than 5mils from Crystal Palace as a back up keeper. He won't be spectacular but he gets the job done. But at the end of the day he was our stand in when we we needed a goalkeeper and to be honest I don't think every keeper in the prem (bar a handful), had they take his place, would've guaranteed our survival so my opinion still stands
on that. Until he makes the same costly errors that big FF, as solid as he was early in his career, made, I'll stand by what I said. For now I think he deserves at least to start as first choice.
