Buying a young keeper is like doing the lottery, you just gotta keep doingt it. Work out the odds... you can play 4-5 midfielders in a game but only one keeper at a time. Its such a niche position, its not just talent, its about mentality and maturity to the extent that you need to be so mentally strong.

 

However when you hit the jackpot you are laughing.

6th keeper on the books according to that link. Suppose we need that many and possibly more for teams other than the 1st X1. Must be a massive incentive to sign for a club like ours when you're that age and not have that many people in your path, unlike the multitude of defenders, midfielders, strikers we must have. Only your own ability and drive to succeed can hold you back. That and drugs, alcohol and women......

:lol: Fair enough, have never seen him in action or heard much for that matter..

we seem to always have a plethora of young keepers who end up moving on. Don't see any other future but the same for Mason, probably this lad too

I don't see the giant problem. Keepers rarely come through. You just can't get them game time with the first team barring injuries or that young keeper being a standout. I mean, what are we going to do? Play Springthorpe over Howard and Joel? Yeah right.

Did we need a young keeper?

 

Howard's not getting younger, Joel has proven absolutely nothing, and Everton couldn't find so much as a struggling League 2 team that wanted Springthorpe. So yeah, I'd say we could use another kid with upside on the cheap.

thats very harsh in my opinion. I rated him when he played at Wigan, where he was only let down because of a poor defence when he got to play. Plus, hes 23 so has a long way to go in his own development anyway.

It wasn't supposed to be a criticism of him. My point is that he's really young, raw, and has proven little at a truly high level like the EPL. There are absolutely no guarantees he'll be starter caliber for even a mid-table team, never mind a team pushing for CL. All I'm saying is that, with our starter getting up there in age, one unproven commodity behind him, and virtually nothing in the Academy, we absolutely could use another option.

if you watch the match highlights on the team website you'll see the first one is solely on ledson. he was pressured and made a terrible back pass/shot that ended in goal.
