To be fair I have heard that Mejias isn't that bothered about trying to force his way into the team and is happy to just train and pick up a paycheck. Not the sort of player we should have on our books really if you ask me. Just another example of the club wasting money.
I'm guessing Pears was performing much better in training, as I don't think it makes any sense if the club brought him back from Cyprus just to be 3rd choice, he was almost definitely meant to be 2nd choice behind Randolph at the start of the season.
Goalkeeping is the least of our worries on the pitch right now though. We cannot defend to save our lives.
Mejias also played (and was a standout performer) in our 2-0 FA Cup win over Man City.
I just don't understand why we re-signed him and aren't using him. He's still a more experienced goalkeeper than Pears whichever way you look at it.
Agree. He is still a bit green. But I think he's acquitted himself pretty decently, considering the circumstances.
I also can't understand why Mejias wasn't the default replacement for Randolph. Guess Woody doesn't like him for some reason.
