    I remember when he was meant to be dead good, but that link didn't fill me with confidence. Our scouts seem to know their stuff anyways

    I can imagine Van Dijk having everything under control, and out of nowhere Butland goes through the back of him with both feet, and as he is falling to the ground with ligaments snapping one after another, him screaming Adrian towards the bench, before the side of his face slams onto the turf.

    He's English which prob helps get someone else in the squad as well if we fancy it.

    He's not shit but he clearly lacks confidence for a while and throwing him into a derby won't solve that

    His agent probably wants to get him a move. This gets the name out there. Other clubs might bite. I doubt it's anything more than that.

    He's definitely some sort of number 2.

    He's low on confidence at stoke - he would either sink or swim if his next game was as the GK saviour for the PL Champions against their rival who are currently top of the league! Even writing that scenario out is LOLs.

    I've no idea how to post old comments into a thread but I've just looked back for my previous comments on Butland since 2012 and I was very critical of him all the way along. I mentioned him at least 8 times and each time suggested we should NOT be looking to sign him. My opinion hasn't changed - Adrian makes fewer mistakes.

    Maybe we're getting Butland just for practice after Lonergan left (assuming he's actually left at all). Funny after all those keepers we keep buying and still we feel we don't have enough quality there.

    The only truly reliable reserve keeper we've ever had was Steve Ogrizovic, but he only played about four times in five years because our first choice keeper never got injured and didn't need 'rests'. He was reliable, however, because he was a good keeper who actually played regularly for the reserves. It's rare enough these days to get a good reserve keeper; it's even rarer to get one who doesn't need to play regularly to be mentally ready for the first XI.

    The best/least worst thing the club can do is work on Adrian's confidence, set down some clear and simple 'dos and don'ts' for him and his back four to follow until Becker is back, and get on with it.

    Improve our overall defensive team play in transition and we won't shine such a spotlight on our defense and keeper.

    Haha. I can’t remember thinking he was that great for us to be fair. He was better at other clubs. Mind you, we had a very, very ropey defence at the time. Phil Babb was still something of a regular.

    I always thought Mike Hooper was a fairly decent back up keeper. Every year or so he would come in for a couple of games, usually do pretty well and sometimes stay in the team for a bit longer. Obviously eventually it would become clear why he was only a reserve keeper, as he wasn’t really good enough to be first choice, but I don’t recall him being anywhere near as dodgy as many others we have had since.
