Being a goalkeeper myself, I can't help but notice that all the goals that have gone past Tim Howard have been on his left hand side? Have other teams realised this weakness? Or is it the fact he hangs his towel that side & like the legend Neville Southall said, if you put something in the back of the net, strikers will use it as a target?
Either way Chris Woods needs to sort this out with Howard. I don't think having Hahnemann at the club helps either...

I can't be arsed to look back at the other four goals he's let in this season. I'm depressed enough as it is...
ps: Here's a question: do good strikers actually look where they're shooting? Or do they instinctively know where the goal is?
Watch that brilliant finish at the near post by Van Persie yesterday. I don't think he took his eye off the ball. I don't think he even looked at the goal until the ball hit the net.

De Gae ? Too young, looks weak.
Reina ? Dodgy on crosses tempremental.
Scenzny- Don't make me laugh!
Hart ? Good keeper but error prone.
Cech ? Excellent keeper but injury plagued.
The rest are crap-average at best.
We also have Mucha and now Hahnemann who are both decent keepers and having them at the club is called competition for places which is a good thing.

Do you mean Goal Keeper as he's not been the best 'player' in the league for years has he?!
I think there are other areas of the team we need to improve first.

No good goalkeepers in the PL? Wow that's a bit harsh!
15 Posted 26/09/2011 at 20:52:18
And just for the record - can anyone please explain to me why a keeper better than tim howard would join us in the first place? Have we looked in the mirror lately?
We should be thankful that we have him.

Oh and "need replacing soon"? ? He's in his prime à la the legendary Nigel...
