Remember our new goalkeeping coach is from United, he’ll know the keepers at City very well. Should be interesting to see how he does. 

Yeah the gazette reckon he is more than a standard GK coach and will be helping with identifying keepers so probs was in on the deal

I appreciate people are going to dismiss my information and think I'm full of ****  but thought I would post this because of mixed reaction and comments which I fully understand where you are all comi

Sorry everyone, I can't go into too much detail atm with what I have been informed so that's why I'm not responding to everyone's posts. Larsen was there again today and trained. Not sure what th

Hopefully we get Steffen over the line. As much as I rate Darlow as a decent shot stopper I was slightly concerned that he might struggle with being the sweeper and playing it out the back which is obviously what we were asking Lumley / Daniels to do last season. Having been at Man City for years now he’ll have had that drilled into him despite that clanger he dropped in the cup.

He also just looks like an absolute unit. Lumley was built like a bit of a stringbean and was never really very commanding.

Can’t see much to complain about imo. Only a loan so we’re not tied into anything if it turns out he isn’t up to it, but he’s now down to 3rd choice at City so we probably have an alright chance of landing him if he ends up being decent.

I know this isn’t anything to go by but hear me out… so in Fifa I always used to sign Steffen for my GK.. after a while I was surprised to see Man City linked with him as he was from the MLS so I did a bit of reading up on him at the time of the city link and he seemed to be very highly regarded/promising younger keeper. I know he hasn’t played a lot and I know fifa isn’t anything to go off but like I say, articles I read at the time seemed to be hyping him up so you never know he may be a shrewd bit of business.

Yeah. 

OK what sort of goalkeeper is he? I don't give a *** about what he does with his feet I want to know what he's like as an actual GK over the course of a few games because I've only seen him once on highlights when he had a mare so I have no idea really what to expect.

Being competent with your feet is just as important as being competent with your hands these days though for a GK.

Who have you watched him for? And how many times do you reckon you have seen him play? Could you give those of us who have seen very little of him a summary of his strengths and weaknesses?

As far as I can tell this amazing with his feet description seems to come from the fact he's on the books at City but so was Scott Carson 

I've no idea what his distribution is like as I say the only time I've seen the ball at his feet is when he made the gaff vs Liverpool

I'd prefer Iversen if I'm honest as he's more proven but I'll back Steffen if we do bring him in and anyways I'm quite confident in Roberts as a number 2 if Steffen turns out to be the 2nd best Goalkeeper called Zach at the Boro

I mean he’s been capped for USA nearly 30 times. Joe Lumley isn’t in the same league. 
 

 

If Joe Lumley was American then he'd have been capped as well.  Have you actually looked who the 'top' American goalkeepers are at the moment?  One of them is the back up keeper at Forest.

I mean ffs, Sylvester Stallone is ranked 7th!

Not if you are wanting your keeper to win you points across the season. It’s a ‘nice to have’ for sure, but give me a big plodder who’s can stop the ball going in the back of the net over a keeper who’s good on the ball.

Man City. He’s played in quite a lot of cup games for them and the odd league game which Ederson missed out on. He looks a calm laid back keeper who is ridiculously calm on the ball and can play. Tall, stocky unit type so competent on crosses, the only thing I would have to wait on to give a more assured opinion on his him making saves as he didn’t have to do a lot of that in the games I seen him play for city. 
 

Everytime I watched him though I did feel he was someone who was too good to be a no 2 and expected him to leave to a European team or lower Prem team so to get him whilst we are in championship feels a bit of a coup.

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
