Have to admit: have only seen a few of your matches, but from what I've seen, Tim looks to have performed quite solidly for you so far. As an American, I'm intrigued by his loan spell there, and hope that good things continue to happen for him. (Well, except against LFC, of course :D )

At age 27, he looks to be the future of America in goal for international matches. Hahnemann (Reading's GK) is 34, but Keller's 37 and Friedel's retired.

What do all of you think of him? And do you think he'll stay permanently, or go back to Man U?

I think he's been incredible, a perfect replacement for Martyn in my opinion. He commands his area superbly, shouts at defenders when need be and hes a great shot stopper.

Im not too sure if he'll stay here permantly, i hope he does though. Even if he doesnt I highly doubt he'll be going back to Manure, he'll join another team permantly if he doesnt come to us I reckon.

Solid If not sometimes Twitchy & that refers in no way to his goalkeeping. His Glove Work has been pretty bloody good.

He has been outstanding so far highlighted yesterday when he kept us in the game with a 1 on 1 with Martins. I'm sure he has been a key factor in our form so far. I hope his move is made permanent.

Wonder why he couldn't hold down no.1 at Manure? At this rate, they'll definitely have him back.

But then Ferguson would have to admit he made a mistake...unlikely.

Been a good performer so far, solid on crosses and looks to have the trust and respect of his back line.

Would love to see him still here next season :)

I've been impressed by him, as well.

Edit:-

Would like to add one thing as well. Howard looked world class (i know that word gets thrown about a bit too much) in his first season at ManUre. He made a few mistakes and never got back to his top form.

He has had a new start at EFC and thus has had an oppurtunity to forget his past and start afresh, to an extent. I personally, would find it interesting to see how he reacts after a mistake or two has been made by him.

If he has the balls, he'll come back and earn more respect from me.



Not slating him, just laying down a new path for a discussion.

Can only agree, and indeed I said exactly the same thing about Reina last season. The best way to judge a 'keeper is after he's made a couple of howlers (although hopefully it'll NEVER happen in an Everton shirt).

He's looking good at the moment, particularly impressed with his ability to hold shots hit close to his body, Martyn aside, it's not something we've been used to recently.

That's very true Sir Alex holds no prisoners when it comes to mistakes between the sticks. It is no accident that Man U have been through so many keepers in the last 5 years. He has a way of destroying a keepers confidence, and he has had some decent keeper in that time, with Howard as good as any. It is also no shame to be second fiddle to Van Der Sar, who I would say truly is world class on a consistent level.

I don't think Tim will ever go back to Utd. I think the loan agreement rather a permeneant agreement was more down to Everton than Man U to be honest. I can see him signing permenent come next summer.

In his first season at Utd he played as good as any keeper in the Prem that season, so he does have the ability.

He has been excellent in goal for us in the first 6 games and I am very happy to have him, and his understanding with the defence and the defence with him will only get better with time.

You are deluded mate, you have to pay a reasonable amount of money to get good players you know. If we wont pay it then you can sure as hell bet on some other club paying it for him.

Bring back Richard(Flapper)Wright. ONLY JOKING :D
I think he's given the team more confidence as Mr Southall used to do.
I think will get him permanently especially if we qualify for europe.
If we don't who else is there ? :blink:
