In recent days posters have commented on how Godden was poor for us but has been prolific elsewhere and that Hayesey is an Iron legend but will have been forgotten by Barnsley and Preston fans.
The question has been asked, “how long do you persist before the player needs to move on?”
UTI99 is right when he lists Johnstone, Goode & (possibly) Burgess. But he is wrong to think it was just the terrace fans and “keyboard warriors” knocking them back. Managers not playing them or dropping them for a favourite (or more expensive) squad member. Injuries. Formations. Tactics. All of these play their part.
The problem we have here is that this is such a key position (think of Klopp’s Liverpool pre Allison) so all eyes are on the lad. A young keeper needs an experienced CB in front of him. Young CBs need an experienced keeper behind them.
If PS has faith in Rory and sees Kelsey and Collins as adequate backup why were Eastwood and Lawlor loaned in last year?
Of course we all want to see OUR players develop and flourish but not at the expense of another relegation battle surely?
