I am sure you are, as I am fine with mine, facts do tend to trump opinion though and that Norwich game was not a one off. Lumley had some good games remember and made some good saves too. I am keeping my fingers crossed for Iversen, consistent reliable less gaff prone keeper and a far more saleable asset for the club in the future if needs be.

Well let’s just wait and see what happens I would prefer Darlow but Iversen would be good too Considering he won player of the year for his club.

Not been funny mate but you sold us the dream with Akpom and Balogun telling us all how exceptional they were. They were ***. My turn to sell you the dream, Darlow is a solid goalie and will be best we have had since Randolph and he will do very well if we sign him. Don’t write him off

Akpom and Balogun were both exceptional at the level I regularly watched them play at. I thought they could step up to Championship level, I was wrong. 

Darlow is barely an upgrade on Lumley or Daniels, there's enough evidence to show that.

'facts tend to trump opinion'

Well this is what Sky put together of the lad from 20/21:

Don't get me wrong, not hailing him as fantastic because of this but these saves are also facts.

Should've caught that first one 🤣

Awesome saves in there 

I'm not sure he actually got anything on that one against Southampton, the second one against Spurs is a save I'd expect Lumley or Daniels to have made and he was very fortunate against Salah.

Hahaha what an interesting take that is. They were good saves; he has an excellent spring off the ground that’s clear from them saves. People say there is more to goalkeeping than making saves of course there is, but we haven’t had a keeper for ages who can make saves. Darlow would be absolutely fine.

Be nice to have a keeper who puts some effort in when we give away a penalty.

Randolph use to just give up as soon as we give one away. Made little to no effort to try and save one.

Also, that Norwich game was from 16/17 so for some more video evidence (and perhaps more proof that video evidence in such small pieces means nothing), here's some of his best saves from that season:

What happened to “Don’t use YouTube as your go too” or is it ok when it suits? 🤣

I could post some good saves from Lumley too and he was garbage. Youtube is a factual Library, those saves were made just like his gaffs, people tend not to roll them into one video though, mistakes cost points, Darlow causes chaos in the area. I said he was a good shot stopper, but we want more from a keeper than that. Darlow is known by the Toon side of the family as Fred, after Fred Karno’s Army.

Darlow is a solid keeper who has had some very good seasons in the prem and championship, certainly wouldn't be the worst option and he's a massive upgrade on Fumbley.

My only worry is his distribution and ability on the ball, he's never really excelled at that.

Like others have mentioned, if we could get Bazunu on loan I would be offering City a large loan fee to get him as he's genuinely quality and I'd be confident of us going up with him in goal.

Iversen would also be an exceptional signing but I think we'd probably be priced out of him as I imagine they'll want around 5-6m.

My choice would be Michael Cooper from Plymouth, quality goalkeeper who is only 22 and is solid with the ball at his feet and good distribution. Think he could be premier league standard in a few years so not only would he improve our team, he's also a very sellable asset in the future unlike Darlow.

Nope as I said in my first reply that good footage isn’t the be all and all either. I watch a lot of football and he’s more than good enough to get us out of the division. The biggest problem last season was n it having a good shot stopper, if we had Darlow I’m confident we would have enough points for a play off spot. You disagree that’s fine but don’t mock me with laughing reactions and a sarcastic tone.

I love the transfer window.

Already enjoying all the intrigue and debate and it's not even open yet.

This thread is always hilarious. 

Three pages of arguing over whether a keeper we probably won't even sign is s*** or not 😂

You mean like Boyd- Munce? 

No.  21 year old vs near 24 year old at the time of signing.  Jones was 20 when we signed him, Munce is an attempt at similar.

    • With a 10-15m odd budget and ambitions of promotion we should have a player that does both Refuse to kid myself that Akpom's the answer this season
    • Haha we all saw that article coming didn’t we?!? I’ve nothing against Akpom and I hope he does have a decent season but it’s articles like this that just confirm we’ve missed out on key targets.
    • It's not all about goalscorers though, Saturday showed we need at least one player up there who can keep it and link up play 
    • This seems like the transfer window of January 2017 for me. We know what and who we want but we either can’t or wont pay the money or the selling club wont sell and it ends up affecting our outcomes negatively. That window relegated us, clearly this wont. If we were to end up with Akpomb, Forss, Watmore, Hoppe and Muniz, I can see Muniz and maybe Forss scoring but don’t see it as a top 6 strike force. Additionally, I feel our midfield is powderpuff defensively as it stands and as everyone knows, I was worried about Steffen and his ability on crosses, well the jury is out on him for me. That said, it is ridiculously early to judge, people deserve chances. Steffen and Lenihan need to bed in and the midfield will surely be bolstered and we may yet see a wildcard goal scorer come in or one of the current crop defy expectations. 10 games in and the window shut is a fair time to assess how everyone is knitting together. I have complete faith in the manager, less faith that he will be provided with the ammunition he needs and wants.
    • The difference with Pulis was he was trying to make out that was his plan from the outset to wait until the end. although I suspect/hope he was saying it to manage expectations of he want then it’sa very dangerous game to play
