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.

Dwight Gayle deal collapsed as we have made surprise progress on 2 strikers and we pulled the plug.( both played uk last year ). Spence deal preventing finalising them both.  Could be another big exit

We’re close to signing Gayle, it’s almost done.

Expect us to get Gyokeres after Spence goes. Just been told it’s a large part of the fee going on him.    No idea on either fee though

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.

    • Interesting tactic giving points for leaving. Need to revisit some of my scores 10 for Connolly: 1 for his contribution and 9 for *** off. 😂
    • It depends on who we get tho. I doubt we can think for the next 10 years we should play with wingbacks. For instance dijksteel wouldn't be as good in 2 man cb partnership. I'd imagine after wilder we may want to change that. Also then a type of cm wilder wants might not be as suitable or effective in a 2. Wilder plays a very specific system and wants players with specific qualities to play in it. If we are being cautious with spending on certain positions but still getting good quality players while we are in this league I'm happy with that. You only need to look at Sheff Utd under Jokanovic and then what happened when they reverted back to the wilder shape under Heckingbottom to see how players struggle to adapt to a new style when they don't suit it. 
    • 6 for me. 4 for the player but an extra couple of points for the structure of the deal. Under previous regimes I feel like we would've bought outright and been stuck with him. 
    • Maybe some of our (potential) loan deals will have a buy option like with Sporar. Would love that for Armstrong 
    • I don't think Payero engages enough in midfield for Wilder. He does well shadowing the opposition and tracking their movement, but if you watch him, most of the time he allows the opposition to pass it off without engaging
