Didn't like Hampden.


*couldn't find the 3 he lost in the League Cup Semi, including another 2 to Novo.

Unfortunately some excellent goal keepers are simply limited a bit by their physiques.  Dani was only 6 feet tall . 3 or 4 inches taller and he's getting that.  One reason why a lot of goalkeepers these days are nearer 6'5' or even bigger.

Off the field he was an absolute gentlemen and one of the nicest people I’ve met. My parents met him at an awards night one year and both said he was fantastic and spoke all night. My Mum thought he was genuinely a good guy and he became her favourite player for this reason (her not knowing anything about football🤣). When she died a few years back, Bobby found out and got in touch. He donated to the charity for her and signed his match top which she had for years and went with her as she treasured it. Not the best keeper by any stretch but a thoroughly decent guy that we’ll never have a bad word to say about him. 

Worked at the Club during Bobby`s spell there and can confirm everything you`ve said. Really nice, unassuming and friendly guy. The players called him "Inspector gadget" as he was always into the latest tech. As part of that, he got interested in photography. After a game at Pittodrie, he walked down to where I was sitting on the team bus just as it left and started enquiring about cameras. When the bus pulled in to the Stadium 2 hours later, he was still standing there asking questions!!🤔😂

I rated Kasper over Krul myself but it's amazing we had either keeper as our no1.

Boabys issue as mentioned was crossed balls, decent shot stopper and was at times shafted by us altho when he was given the No1 Jersey he didn't progress. He obviously did in his move to England earning him a 300k+ transfer. I'm sure he started well at Peterborough and during that period he was quoted for silly money.

He wasn't Mcgloves who has been the standard long term wise you look for, he could have a howler but week after its gone, that's the difference from decent to great.

I don't think anyone will disagree in Fasan we reached a new low 

I think that's a bit unfair. Leo was quite happy manning the turnstyles until Hartley decided that he was a goalkeeper.

100% agree, I remember saying at the time he was the worst goalie in the world.

Not going to say Boaby Olejnik was a great keeper, but he was far from the worst I’ve seen us have. His kicking was abysmal but one thing i’ll say. That night in Vaduz he saved us from losing 5 or 6 Nil, and where the defeat wasn’t good that kind of score would have been a real embarrassment

It's a parody account. There seems to be a few of them around. I was told today that one has been made up for Clyde FC saying that their signing of Benjamin Mendy is imminent.

Its an example though how the clubs stock has fallen. In these days FFC were taken seriously by clubs like Arsenal. Aston Villa, Newcastle, Manchester City. Where their young players could get experience and they would be sure they would get looked after.7

I said last week the acid test was the next three league games. Sadly pretty predictable 

We had an incredibly easy run of games against the poorest teams in the league. Maybe even the 4 worst back to back. And we still only won 2 out of 4.

Raith, QP and Cove coming up. 3 defeats beckoning.

It’s been a downward spiral for a good few seasons, but by God, it hasn’t half accelerated under this BoD and Holt. His recruitment buoyed by data analytics is woeful to say the least. The sooner he leaves our club the better. I was all for giving Sheerin a chance, but his time is up too. If we still have ambitions to go up, the whole club from top to bottom needs a clear out and start afresh!

I'm not sure about this Data Analytics chat. 

Having seen out scouting report 'Left back likes to kick the ball with left foot' there's no danger anyone at this sham of a club even knows what a primary key is.

It’s apparently what Holt is using to identify players. His lad must have hacked into his laptop.
