    He was another player who went from having a dodgy start to an incredible finish, a keeper like that we have to find a way to keep. He obviously wants to be here so it has to be possible.

    He belongs here.

    Sometimes a player and club are well matched, a spiritual partnership. I hope the club and player can sort something out for him to be here for the remainder of his career

    I also think Fraser is a good goalie.

    He made some excellent saves but let's call a spade a spade. Forster must improve in the air. It's absolutely ridiculous how timid he is in the air for a man his size and it will cost us eventually.

    Love the big man but I'm speaking facts.

    He has got flaws but he turns potential draws and losses into wins and draws.

    If we can improve him in the air then good but at this stage I don’t even really even care, he’s priceless for us in the big moments.

    Let's no forget that's the biggest stage he's operated in for a few year's..

    He's been injured and in the doldrums for a good bit..

    Looked rusty at time's...but still a top keeper when it matters..

    I've no worries about him improving as the season goes on and his confidence continues to come back even more..

    Mate he's been absolutely exceptional since coming in but he's a ball hair away from being the key to us going on an excellent run in this competition. We should be drilling hundreds of high balls with him every single day in training. I've faith in Stevie Woods anyway to get it done.

    No doubt mate. He’s not a ball hair away from being key but, he already is.

    He’s regressed majorly in that department since going down south, was never a strong point but they’ve tried to coach that punching * into him.

    He is already key to the team but if he improves in that department he could be THE key.

    Made some crucial saves last night, a big reason we are sitting top of the table.

    He was immense last night and thought his stop with his leg from the corner late on was so important. His reflex saves are astonishing.

    I've noticed he seems to use his left foot an awful lot even when he doesn't have to, had a howler of a kick with it last night too. Considering it's his weak foot he's very decent on it, but I just find it slightly odd.

    I remember boruc being very good with his left foot too, rememver he used to take goal kicks with if he had to. Must be a goalkeeper thing.

    Big big reason we have 6 in 6 aginst Lazio is because of the saves he's made.

    Chances of him signing if Southampton go down?

    Would be the signing of the summer.
