    The more games he plays the more confident he will be, would help if he had a settled defence in front of him.

    He was fantastic tonight.

    Very confident at coming out and gathering crosses into the box which is refreshing to see. So calm on the ball and can pick a pass as well.

    His handling is really impressive. Think he’s growing in to the role and he’ll be a big player for us.

    A keeper from the continent who actually catches the ball everytime? Refreshing as * that.

    I was worried about constant trying to punch the ball out, seems to be the go to thing these days. Catching it just brings so much pressure off of you.

    Love him sprinting up the box to roll balls out and get our attacks moving quickly. Think he's been our best buy

    Commands the box quite well. I'd say that's what has stood out the most to me so far.

    Collects it cleanly 9 times out of 10.

    Was ropey for that one ball first half that came in but he looks really good..

    He's such an asset with hiw quickly he starts our attacks and with the ball at his feet..

    Starting to really fill the jersey now..

    He has indeed. He’s one penalty save away from being loved a la big Fraz against the minis

    I love how he comes and claims everything and wants to get going straight away again. When he came out and punched one which didn’t look that classy lol but the defence had lost the St Johnstone player so I think it had to be done tbf.

    He is good at collecting crosses but I don't think he is very commanding as such

    I don't really see him being very vocal, couple of times he could have taken a through ball or given Duffy a shout etc

    Can't fault him though so far :50: I just like a loud keeper is all

    I’ve been very impressed by him. He looks very self assured and comfortable. A big save or two against the huns and he’ll get the credit he’s due.

    I really like him.

    Comes out and gathers crosses and then sprints out to try and get us on a quick counter.

    Seems like a quiet guy. Doesn’t seem like the type that will bark orders but that means * all. You could be the loudest * going but doesn’t mean you can keep the ball out of the net.

    Starting to show what he’s about, his big tests are still to come though.

    12 games,
    8 clean sheets,
    6 goals shipped - at least 3 of those are completely not his fault (pen and two long shots that the defence should have closed down and both great shots).
    66% clean sheet record so far, while we are generally poor and that backline has had more changes than Britney Spears doing a gig.
    As an FYI Gordons last two full seasons 15/16 and 16/17 his clean sheet % was 43% and 47% with the season he shared with Bain 17/18 he was 52%
    Fraser last year was 66% as well.

    I know it is early days and only 12 games in, but so far he is on a par with Fraser. Needs to show his worth though in the big games.

    Certainly growing in to the team as well and playing better with his starting of attacks. Distribution also seems much much better than both Fraser and Gordon before him.
