frank fielding released by Bristol city. An excellent goalkeeper only 31.
Not seen him, but had a decent reputation a few years ago iirc.
England U21 keeper when at Derby but never seemed to take off from there
There’s something reassuring about having a goalie called Frank.
Stockdale for me provern quality, experienced, confident and would have crucial supporter support too and bring in another, younger number two. Wages ? If we want to compete at the top we have to pay and goalkeepers, good ones, are an expensive item in any team.
Would have support until his first mistake....
Then all hell will let Loose a again.
no it wouldnt. burge was shown lots of patience by fans these last few years until they finnaly turned on him earlier this season
He’s on around £30,000 a week
Yes they would look at other players that have come in had a couple of games and ripped a New one.
I think with the keeper situation it might be somewhere in between. Some are so glad to be rid of Burge that they will defend the new keeper to the hilt regardless of some mistakes, others will slaughter him from the get-go. You only need to look at how Sterling was treated after a few games to realise what our fanbase can be like.
Seeing as you were quoting yourself.
Is it just after one game and one mistake or a few years of seeing the same thing every other week?
He wouldn’t be here or anywhere else.
Interesting emergence of a new member solely to post on this issue. Probable bullshit!
But he has £81 credit !!!!! he must be legit
Any new keeper would almost certainly make us favourites for promotion next season.
He’s still contracted to Birmingham
Will Norris was mentioned on twitter (due to the link with our rumoured new gk coach).
Nope, not true. All players make mistakes: Burge makes more than the rest of the team and more than any goalkeeper I can remember playing for CCFC.
Tommy Taylor from Scarborough has been mentioned too.
Well if they want him off their wage bill they will have to do something about it won’t they
Better than FFS
We could get him on loan?
Another name mentioned on twitter was Jakob Haugaard. Just released by Stoke.
It looks like our top wage is circa 4k a week if that's what was allegedly offered to Willis. Need someone who is class who is prepared to come in on that money. All this talk of Stockdale and Westwood is pie in the sky.
We have been linked with lower league goalkeepers a lot recently. Which i think is better. Look at Luton how many of their players were people being released by clubs and dropping down the league. If we start taking lower leagues better players that surely outlines intent for
Just been mentioned that Ben Garratt of Crewe has been released after stalling on signing a new contract 25 years old and over 200 games played, I am sure he has played against us a few times and had decent games would be a good option as second choice at least
If any of your rumours come from the pissing Cov bible please let us know so we can disregard them.
I thought that got shut down?
He's started it up again and people are lapping it up.
I would think that if he dont ask for a transfer he would be paid up, he is possibly not going to get another big money deal so maybe the sweetner is a lower wage coupled with his pay off and the possibility of gk coach... who knows
My guess would be get shot of Addai bring in a development keeper and an experienced one so they can learn off one another
Guess playing and coaching would have two wages too.
And with his assumed pay off he would actually be finacially better off
there will be a new goalkeeping coach !!!
Any keeper that can do the basics is an improvement on what we’ve had over the last 3-4 years , this is an easy replacement job for sure
