    Not going to sit and go through all the goals he conceded.

    Name his big saves then explain why the £4.5m goalie can’t get in the team ahead of Bain despite no obvious clangers. He’s obviously been *.

    Also you’re surely not sitting saying he’s been blameless in every goal for * sake. He obviously could be doing better.

    I can see him going back to greece on loan, still young to resurrect his career.

    I mean hes over here, not playing, stuck at home due to covid so basically training and home, would be a bit *.

    The lack of "big" saves is why, for me, he still needs to prove the price tag.
    But he most certainly has proved why we signed him.
    If that makes sense.

    As for naming them,
    11 goals conceded, 2 are world class ranged shots across goal which no keeper is saving, but if they did literally it would be the "big" saves people demand of him.
    6 are literally down to Duffy or other defender * ups.
    The other 3 are ones where 2 are communication issues (forgiven early on since he literally speaks a different language).
    This is in 14 games where he has also had 8 clean sheets.

    So yeah, he actually hasn't been *.
    No more so than Bain who's shipped 13 goals in 7 games and has kept just one clean sheet.

    Say what you want about Barkas not making any obvious "big" saves that keeps him being compared to Forster (shouldn't be), but he is by far a better keeper for the side than Bain is (who I like).

    It's the same old same old though, if the face fits with Lennon, you get a game.

    If Hammond recommended Barkas then he should be chased. £4.5M spunked on a goalkeeper who is clearly not good enough. Congerton mark 2.

    I definitely agree he’s better than Bain.

    Clearly not good enough my hole, he's no even played enough games for him to show he's "not good enough"...

    Why is he not playing then? Clearly not good enough in Lennon's eyes.

    Lennon's opinion in the grand scheme of things means absolutely * all, guys so out his depth is frightening.

    He should he starting. It’s mental that he’s been dropped despite not really doing a whole lot wrong.

    Not sure anyone here is putting much stock in what Lennon thinks is good enough anymore, not the way we've been playing all season, and with some of his comments the last couple of months.

    Neil Lennon is given feedback on the goalkeepers from Mr Woods. Neil Lennon does not select on his own

    Folk like to say he’s not done much wrong (debatable) but he’s not done much right either. That’s the long and short of it.

    Bain has shipped too many goals for my liking but I think he has done better relatively speaking and his inclusion was justified. Bain has made several saves and I doubt Barkas saves the two penalties based on his showing in a Celtic jersey thus far. Could that change? Maybe.

    We could certainly do with a new number 1 in January if this fella isn’t going to cut the mustard.

    However, the keeper discussion is a bit of a red herring here. There are more pressing issues I’m afraid to say and Barkas ain’t the answer. Somewhat bizarre how the Bitton and Frimpong threads are getting of relatively Scot-free after Saturday for example.

    I think he should save the hun goal but he does get a lot of unwarranted stick but then at the same time he's not yet showed anything to warrant his price tag

    Because they are NOT called Shayne Duffy. Imagine the big man defending like Bitton in recent matches???

    I can't remember too many complaints when he was dropped in the first place to be honest. Guy maybe needs time to settle or whatever but I still haven't been exactly confident with his handling. Still reckon he shoulda done better at a few of the goals he's conceded too.

    Starts again at the weekend please. Would feel much better with him in goals again, and unless he's dropping balls and letting them under him and through him left right and centre, wiping out defenders etc, keep him there.
