    What do we all think so far?

    Mistakes get highlighted on goal reel type things but overall he seems to do more good stuff than bad. Just interested to hear from people who've seen a good chunk of him.

    The second goal yesterday seems to be a gripe but I thought he was ok there and just beaten by a weak, dribbling shot that surprised everyone!

    I thought the first goal was the one where he could have done better. What was he doing coming that far out when the defender is with his man? Gives him less chance to react.

    anyway......we go on!:cool:

    He is generally sound but his flapping is a worry.

    He wasn't great yesterday and I am concerned about the communication between him and Batth, or indeed the lack of.

    Have only seen him a couple of times live but I'm slightly worried at the number of mistakes he has made in a short space of time. His handling is a lot less clean than Ikeme's.

    Decent back-up but I feel far calmer when Ikeme is in goal.

    Appears still to be a lack of communication with his centre backs
    Positional play seems a little suspect at times
    Often goes walk about at corners
    Bit of a flapper
    Kicking is poor
    Throwing decisions are very odd at times
    Puncher not a catcher

    Other than that he's alright

    Agreed. And with Reading's first and the penalty at Bournemouth (although that's being overly harsh I guess). Was also very lucky at Cardiff at the end of the game.

    I just get the feeling a howler is around the corner. Which is ironically the same feeling I had about Ikeme when he first replaced Hennessey in the Championship-winning season.

    As I say, decent keeper. Just personally prefer Ikeme.

    There was a specific incident yesterday where he should have come out for it and didn't. Batth hesitates as he thought the same.

    See what I did there? Used an actual incident to make a point....

    More suitable back up I mean he's considerably better than McCarey

    He's a shot stopper, he's not best feet or commanding a box but he does a job as back up

    Ikeme will be straight back in, when fit, I would have thought.

    Hmmm he is not as good as I thought he would be.

    His kicking is pants
    His lack of communication with back four
    He flaps at crosses
    He has let some in that I think Ikeme would have stopped


    On the other side

    He is a good shot stopper
    Good back up

    Was hopeful initially and was happy with what I saw. But recently his flapping/kicking is worrying.
     
  21. Not as good as I hoped he would be but good cover

    I feel like Ikeme would have come and cleaned out everything in front of him for their 2nd goal

    Not as good as expected. Flapper and little command of the box. Would of expected a few better attempts for the goals conceded in recent games.
    Ikeme will get his place back when fit.

    I can only go on what I've seen on the video highlights but one thing that stood out was how slow he is to get down to low shots.

    Always has been bang average, always will be. Good cover though.

    I'd agree. Sometimes you have to say the keeper really had no chance but that's not what I feel when I see some of the goals he's conceded.

    He should be behind McCarey in the pecking order and hopefully will be once McCarey is judged to be match fit. Hopefully those who defend guy through thick and thin will allow McCarey a couple of games to get up to speed.

    If you are referring to my opinion NWW, I would have to say that while I rate you as one of the most intelligent posters on this site, I do think you have a blind spot with respect to goalkeepers. From what I have seen of our Polish friend I have not been impressed and I do believe that if he is not replaced shortly, we will suffer by the managers loyalty to him. As things stand McCarey is the one realistic player we have to come in only he too will be stale at this level. A number of posters were willing to give this goalkeeper two/three games to get up to speed. McCarey would need that number of games also to get up to speed. Though younger and less experienced I believe him to be a better goalie than the Pole.

    McCarey is a poor league 1 keeper let alone good enough for the championship. His performance against Northampton still gives me nightmares.

    It misses him giving away a very very cheap corner for there second.

    Agree, total bloody lunacy to say he's ahead of Kuszczak. And I'm saying that even though I think Kuszczak is hideously average.
