Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

Interesting stats here of goalkeepers in the league shows Bettinali has made the fewest saves along with the worst save percentage with he shots he's faced. Therefore kind a worst performing keeper in league has only kept cleansheets when not called upon. Stats

We need to address the Keeper and Fwd line in the summer, there must be a better keeper available to buy/loan than this one.

We used to have one but we loaned him out on account of his poor English.

With Charlie Wyke competing to be top scorer in League One, us desperately needing a targetman like him and him being out of contract in the summer, I think we're definitely going to be interested in signing him this summer. He'll probably be below the likes of Diedhiou on our target list, but I still think we'll have a substantial interest in him and, if anything, we'll have a far better chance of signing him.

Tbf Stojanovic had his critics on here as well. Plenty of people were unsure of his capabilities. 

If he had been as poor as Bett has been he would have received 10x the criticism as well.

I also question the wisdom of loaning him to a foreign country.

German speaking keeper goes to a struggling German club to try and catch the eye of a German speaking national team before the Euros.

I expect Austrian scouts pay more attention to the German leagues than the English ones.

Makes sense to me.

Besides I don't imagine there were many English clubs needing a first choice goalkeeper in January (except us).

Hopefully Betterwelly it won’t be part of next seasons plans. 

he's a free agent at the end of the season so if NW is still here, expect Betts to be here too IMO.

Are there any decent GKs out there we could get on a free or a season loan?

I notice Hennessey at Palace is out of contract in summer as is Weatwood at Sheff Wed. Not suggesting we go for either but other than them two no real names jump out to me.

I guess it depends whether he has a future at the club or not. If it’s to put him in the shop window then fair enough. If we want to develop him then an English speaking league would have been preferential.

    • There's a lot of assumptions you're making there though, mate. 1 player being sold and not replaced, 1 specific player being injured and another suspended. You know how I said big emergencies? Huge crisis? This is that scenario. I don't see why we'd sell Spence and not replace him, either, really. He's played a lot in pre-season. Peltier was Fisher's cover apparently so I'd think Spence would be replaced.
    • Like I said, neither of them have signed, bamba could well be considered an alternative rather than an addition. Well have to see what the makeup of the squad is at the end of the window.
    • you're more likely looking at  Peltier - Hall - McNair - Brown/Bryan - Bola
    • Say we lose dijksteel to injury and fry gets suspended for 3 games. Were playing someone who plays 3 at the back so we want to match up.  Immediately were looking at  Peltier hall McNair bamba Bola (assuming Spence is sold and fishers injury is as bad as it seems) A back 5 with a 34 year old and a 36 year old who haven't been playing. With no one on the bench. We might well sign another but for right now, that's not the case. Who's to say bamba isn't the back up to one of those other signings if they don't go through and he's the only one we end up with? That's what I'm worried about. It's all hypotheticals for now, but I don't see the value of someone who can't step in and be an able deputy long term if things go wrong. 
    • This is how I'm viewing it as well. I know you were allowed to name a larger matchday squad last season, but it was pretty common that every fit player we had was involved. This year I'm hoping we have enough depth that we can actually afford to leave players out altogether, and only call on them when we need to. If we sign Bamba, this is where I imagine he'd fit in.
