    Interesting if someone actually is stupid enough to sign him

    Mental how bad he actually is. There’s nothing there at all.

    We only signed him off the back of the only 2 good games in his career.

    Unfortunately they we're both against us for AEK

    It has to be one of THEE worst decisions of recent times.......telling Craig Gordon he's no getting another year on his contract and instead spending 4.5 mil on this guy.

    Im glad we've got Joe Hart in (just dont pass the ball to him!! lol) but letting Gordon leave when he wanted to stay and opting for Barkas at that price was just absolutely ridiculous. Lennon should have got sacked for that decision alone

    If any officials or fans of other clubs are reading this thread ignore the above posts.

    He is a great keeper. If your club can afford him encourage them greatly.

    Surely will go down as one of our worst ever signings. I genuinely wonder if he was just at it from day 1 and never wanted to be here and just wanted the money.

    Nah Gordon has nothing to do with it for me. Gordon was rightly dropped for Bain. Barkas was an attempt to replace Forster and it backfired spectacularly. Gordon wasn’t good enough. A lot of revisionism with that. Heard it mentioned on commentary when we played Hearts midweek too, as if it was some kind of mistake to let him go.

    Useless *.

    Can't wait to get rid of him and him to play out of his skin against us in a European qualifier.

    Aye, just because Barkas isn't good enough, it doesn't mean Gordon was.

    He wasn't even anything special in those games either.

    We've seen SPL keepers have more inspired games against us.

    Gordon was * for us by the end. He milks saves and makes them look better than they needed to be. In Europe he was a disgrace and got shown up for what he was, a mid level spl keeper. There was a massive reason we got Forster in on loan, Gordon wasn't good enough. He was also offered a contract extension, he chose to leave.

    I've seen fat, Jakie, Sunday kickabout goalies, standing at a half way line with a Gregg's sausage roll, sucking brown sauce of their fingers with more about them.

    I agree with sentiment... He's right up there with Rafael *. One of the worst in our history.

    The difference is when we signed *, we were duped as part of a massive international cap scam.
    We jumped at the chance to sign a Brazilian cap, and trusted that the Brazilian international set up was above reproach and operating on a footballing level of the highest caliber.

    When we signed this *, it seemed to be right off the back of a YouTube video and a performance against us.

    If anything it underlines the massive importance of MODERN scouting. Something we are desperately lacking.

    Whoever is responsible for signing this travesty, ticked about three boxes out of fifty. Total * Champ manager 01/02 scouting at its finest.

    Basic English? Aerial ability? Strength? Handling? One on ones?
    Aye sign him up!

    Neglected all of the * KEY attributes a professional goalkeeper needs in the modern game;
    Communication, leadership, defensive organisation, endeavour, command of area, distribution, confidence, desire and on and on and on...
    More importantly, can he RECOVER from a poor performance or mistake? Can he dust himself down, and prove he deserves to be a number 1?

    However I WOULD let him feature again...if both Hart and Bain became quadriplegic mutes, and all the cones on the store room went missing, and all the scarecrows in the world suddenly sprang to life and went on an adventure to the emerald city, and we couldn't find a * roomba to patrol the goal line.
