Scott Carson

Does Rafa have confidence in the lad? I would have thought with Dudek not playing a game this season and probably out of the door that Carson would be the natural replacement for Reina. At the moment he isn't even featuring for the reserves.

 

In Goalkeeping terms he's barely out of nappies.

 

No rush

Carson has done enough to be given a chance. Remember Juve last season.

 

But by playing Dudek instead could mean the writing is on the wall, especially as we have signed another young keeper.

It made sense to keep hold of Dudek, if Carson had been injured we would be in trouble right now as we have nobody else ready to make the step up to the 1st team...Although I would much rather have Carson fill in in Pepe's absence, just goes to show how important Pepe is to the team. Dudek's distribution yesterday was poor at best..

I understand but surely a goalkeeper has to play to keep his sharpness and match readiness.

 

It's a catch 22 situation isn't it. Dudek's match sharpness would not have been at his best as well.

 

Dudek was a hero in Istanbul, but it shouldn't paper of the facts that he has been at best unreliable during the season.

 

I honestly would have played Carson last night.

I woul have bought Niemi and let Carson and Dudek go.

 

Maybe, but Niemi would not have been happy on the bench after being a first choice keeper for many years at his clubs.

 

Keeping all keepers happy must be one of the hardest jobs as a football manager.

With no 3rd choice back up?

We also acquired Alvin Martin's kid.

I didnt say I thought he should be on the bench. I am not a Reina fan, yet.

Could also be giving Dudek enough rope - there by proving that he's right to play Reina.

This is the point though had we sold both and bought for arguments sake Niemi and he was currently out injured you would be happy to send on a kid with no experience....?? Granted Carson isn't that experienced but at least he's had a taste of league and European football..

Fair enough. I am a Reina fan ;)

That would be bad management though by Rafa.

 

I dunno, for a keeper training games pretty much replicate match situations

 

I disagree, there's nothing like a game, nothing in this world, there's nothing like a game. ;)

Yep. Shame but you're right. That's what he'll always get.

 

Strange how the same people aren't encouraging Carragher to play like Johan Cruyff.

 

Worst cry in football: 'Ge' stuck in!'

 

:hmm:
