    Clear to see from that garbage today why Barkas might look like he’s * it all the time, what a bomb scare of a defence!

    Right so you know Forster personally to know that? Yet i'm the one making things up lol. It's common knowledge the board are cheapskates who wouldn't pay FF's English wages, yet we wasted 5 million plus presumably 20+k a week on Barkas and dozens more who don't play and never, ever will.

    Lennon himself said that Forster hadn’t responded to his approaches fs.

    Lennon doesn't sign anyone though does he, it's the job of the board and that other seemingly useless guy we hired to take over useless Congerton. If we don't sign someone it's because the board don't open the penny jar. Simple.

    We are so much worse and less confident without FF.

    It was widely reported by the club and media and considering its substantially damaged Forster’s reputation here, I’m sure he would have refuted the claims if they weren’t true.

    So yes, you made your statement up.

    That obvious isn’t the case. Player ambitions are the overriding factor in modern football. Forster simply didn’t want to be here.

    Because we didn't want to pay him his worth... it's pretty obvious. Money trumps ambition. You think all being equal he'd prefer sitting on a bench to playing somewhere he's been happy before?

    Anyway Barkas is another waste of money.

    It was a loan deal - he would’ve been paid his Southampton salary irrespective of where that money was coming from (Southampton or ourselves, or some sort of split). So I’m not getting how it could’ve been about money.

    Seems to lack presence which is worrying for a goalkeeper. Looks like he desperately needs a boost in confidence which he will only get from pulling off some top quality saves in a big game which he is yet to do. As with most of our players this season I have been relatively unimpressed but haven't written him off yet.

    We are fortunate to have a excellent goalkeeping coach in Stevie Woods hopefully he can work his magic on this guy and get the best out of him.

    I don't really have much to fault Barkas on, he hasn't made sublime saves that Forster did, but the defense this season has been * atrocious so that factors in to the equation here.

    Aye there's been a couple he could have arguably done better on but if it had been is that scored those goals we would have been shouting it as great efforts not bad keeping that caused them.

    NL on Barkas: “He’s travelled but he has an ongoing shoulder issue, it’s nothing too strenuous.”

    i still don't know what to make of him and its still early days. He must have some quality though if he's the Greek goalie but, for me, he doesn't inspire confidence and does not command his box

    The one thing he does well is command his box. It’s his shot stopping that is dodgy.
