    Stop making excuses, he had the budget to bring in other players and O’Brien has been injured for ages I am hoping Robins rams my words down my throat and plays Addai will see later won’t we, that aside a manager neglects the goalie position at his peril and you my friend have just demonstrated what I said about social media and websites, Stockdale apparently according to you has a stomach of a “pub” player

    What tosh ! Judging a goalkeeper by what he does in a fucking warm up, give me strength. I know for a fact he and other goalkeepers here including Burge do hours of extra practice at Ryton. As for warm ups if he’s part of the match day squad isn’t he wanted for the pre-match teamtalk ?

    You seem to know everything regarding the budget, crystal ball and Robins amongst his many faults neglects the goalkeepers! You are certainly well connected. Or just another know it all?

    For me this is a good signing albeit only for a week. Maybe we could extend or purchase in the summer if Burge rumour is true. I for one don't think we should be opting for Addai.

    I've actually watched the lad play many games for the U23 side
    He's weak on crosses and lacks concentration making him prone to silly mistakes - a bit like O'Brien
    Maybe someone can ask Robins in interview why Addai hasn't had a chance
    I stand by my earlier comments

    Then he should have been replaced in January.
    As said there was a budget for players, you don’t have to be an expert on our finances to know that apart from the two we did sign there was the player that never turned up to sign. If Addai isn’t good enough and Robins chose to go through the season with just Burge as O’Brien has a long term problem that’s a big risky gamble.
    But I’ll ask you a question Better Days as you have said you’ve seen him play for the U23s many times in your opinion will Addai ever be good enough, he is 21.

    Burge isn't exactly slim Jim though to be fair.

    My worry is that he won't know any of our players and the defence.

    An Addai is shit and Stockdale is great thread based on fans who have seen neither play.

    Some of our players must wish some of our fans were going out of contract in the summer.

    To be brutally honest unless he changes his attitude I'll be amazed if his contact is renewed at the end of the season

    If you asked a question like that I don't think you would get a true answer only a diplomatic one, he's hardly going to say he's shit and i can't trust him or anything

    No need to rush back from your injuries boys have a rest for the rest of the season and then clear off.

    How long could we wangle this for i wonder, if Burge got fit could we still claim it was an emergency?

    Also I wonder how much of his reportedly massive wages are we paying? I suppose there is a chance Brum feel its in their interest to get him playing and fit to play or leave at the earliest point in the summer

    At each 7 day extension an independent medical report needs to confirm that both our senior keepers are not fit to play
    The keepers would have to be in on it to kid the independent doctor

    Cheers, not much chance of that happening and absolutely zero chance of Stockdale cancelling his contract at Birmingham

    We couldn’t sign him even if he did. Would need to be out of contract before the window closed.

    All round Burge’s house with ball bearings and banana skins it is then.

    Need to do LOB too as having him in is far scarier still for me.

    Just use one of those doctors that do the whiplash claims. 99% made up (other statistics are available)
