    Incorrect of course.

    Nowhere near this bad.

    He has had spells like this too, check the Lloris thread.

    Early 2018/19 season springs to mind. That mistake against Liverpool, the one against Southampton, Chelsea, Barca, in the World Cup final, the error that caused his injury.

    Our choice is between mechanical limitations and erratic judgement. We need to find a better keeper.

    Lloris was having a mare right around the time he got injured, hes been shaky for a while.

    Im not sure quite what Gazzaniga has done to get the full treatment, I dont think he is as bad as being made out at all.

    Though I do think we can (and should) do better than both he and Lloris.

    Gazza is a good keeper, but people only tend to remember the mistakes.

    In my view, his shortcomings are:

    1. Slow to get down. Robbo was the same and it’s just the way some keepers are built so not much physically that can be done about it, just working on anticipation, reaction times and positioning. Which brings me to...
    2. Positioning. He often seems to get his angles wrong, and certainly needs to come off his line quicker to narrow angles and shut down threats (eg Norwich’s first goal in the 2-2, when Toby was backing off, Gazza stayed back leaving vast goal targets either side of him)

    He does have the feel of a reserve keeper about him though. I’d be happy for him to come into the team occasionally but not for long periods like currently. I’d sell Hugo and buy a first choice keeper with Gazza as no.2.

    I dont disagree we need a new keeper - I said we should have signed Pickford from Sunderland a few years ago as competition.

    He makes mistakes, but not this amount in a row and pretty much every game.


    He really is not a good keeper, the issues you have raised are pretty basic and if he has not done them now he wont improve.

    He also lacks bravery which a keeper needs - I dont blame him with his dreamy looks.

    I have no problems with Gazzaniga especially as he is the backup keeper.

    He is excellent, barring a few crazy moments.
    I think we should be bracing for bids this summer.

    I'd be happy to sell him if we got a decent bid. We need to start planning for replacing Lloris and that will never be Gazzaniga.

    Wait... Don't you want to see if Lloris recovers sufficiently first before you decide?

    I meant in the summer, so yes. If Lloris doesn't fully recover, we need as new first choice keeper.

    I rate Pope a lot. Think we could do a lot worse.

    Pope is a good shout. He's not brilliant in any way, but he's what's probably most important for a GK, he's dependable. No real weaknesses, and rarely makes howlers. I'd be happy with him between the sticks. And he would add to the home grown quota.

    Must admit i have really only watched him when he has played against us, but he looks solid and could do a job for us going forward.

    Now that would be a Levy special. GK and striker all in one.

    We’ve got that when Kane comes back, surely?

    We should be going all out for Alexander Nubel from Schalke on a bosman this summer. Would be a hard deal to do as the story is that he wants to go to Bayern but a bug contract and the promise of being first team keeper might just do the job.
