Marsh-Brown would be interesting off the bench if we decide we're going to push for a 2nd

According to BBC stats (not always matching reality) Rovers with 56% of the possession but only 33% of the shots

All to do again.

Even on his better games he still gift wraps a goal to the opposition.
I'm sure in time he will be a fine keeper, but this season he's been dragging us back down to the conference. Probably worth a goal every other game to opposition with stupid, basic errors.

There's no point playing exceptionally well if you consistently undo all your good work with silly mistakes. This is hardly the first goal he's gift-wrapped for the opposition and it won't be even close to being the last. The good saves he makes shows his potential, the constant errors show why it's just potential. I'd take a consistently good goalkeeper over one who will put in 10/10 performances apart from the cheap goal he conceded any day.
This all coming from a goalie who could single-handedly keep his team in a match one week and single-handedly lose the game the next, I wouldn't have picked me! :lol:

Second game in a row where we have lost our foot in the game because of a silly goalkeeping error. Sam Russell is not the answer... A new goalkeeper is.

Yes he makes mistakes but he saves us frequently as well.
I don't think it's fair to call him an 'awful' goalkeeper.

Don't mind keanu having a crack from distance otherwise it's all knocking sideways while they wait to break.

That's the Goalkeepers job. I think its difficult for a young keeper who makes errors in a team that is struggling, an experienced league goalkeeper could be a double advantage, less errors, more proactive in organising the defence in front of him. A good keeper has less saves to make.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
