Near the bottom of the article..

A spin-off of West Ham's move for Hart is that Adrian, the Spaniard who had been No 1, is surplus to requirements and he is wanted by Crystal Palace. As yet, though, Palace have not made an offer for Adrian, who would be keen to work with Frank De Boer.

Not the worst keeper in the world, key thing being is it's cheap and he's been reasonably solid for West Ham in a window where we have a lot to do. Came across well with the incident with the ball boy last season too. If there's not much money to spend this is a good option. Although Skurupski at Roma would be our best option.

A group of lads behind me were in deep bemused discussion over who he was, when suddenly one of them made his way to the front and being Loftus Road, you're basically pitch side, and asked Sullivan outright, 'Excuse me, who are you?'. Thought Sullivan would give it the biggun and just ignore him, but to his credit turned around and told the bloke his full name. The bloke then made his way back to his mates telling others on his way back. It was a highly comical moment for a top flight match.

Can't believe the ums and rrrrrs on here about Adrian on a free. Proven to be a very good Premier League goalkeeper. Like all players he has had dips in form. Having had a quick look on Squawka, he was ranked the 9th best goalkeeper in the league statistically for the 2015/2016 season. Conversely, Julian Speroni was ranked our top GK at 35 followed by McCarthy at 36 and Hennessey at 39 out of a total of 47. Not saying that the ranking is super accurate but it gives some indication as to the quality of players.

When a striker goes for a master blaster and believes his strike is signed, sealed, delivered...the goalkeeper needs Faith and belief he is on Higher Ground so with his outstretched Fingertips the ball goes over. Too High.

Nigelbrag
14-07-2017, 09:44 AM
It's a tricky one to call, he can look outstanding in a game and then in the next very average. If we are looking at moving to the next level in replacing WH, having missed out on Begovic, then we should be looking at Cllissen a very good keeper who crucially FdB rates highly. But at the end of the day it depends on what ambition the Board shows in supporting the managers decisions.

14-07-2017, 09:59 AM
i think both Randolph and Adrian are fair keepers, but both inconsistent, hence West Ham looking to upgrade.

But then I find Hennessey an ok keeper, innofensive, I don't get the rabid hatred of him, for me a fair number 2, hence us looking to upgrade!

FourtyTwo
14-07-2017, 10:01 AM
Given we have Speroni and Hennessey, we should be looking for a clear first choice keeper, and Adrian doesn't seem to be that much better than what we have already got.

Martyn Margetson was WHU's goalkeeping coach when Adrian had his best season there. He also coached Hennessey last season to his best season ever, even if some on here think it's still short of the mark. Margetson will IMO turn any good keeper into a great one.

I don't think we should be concerned just yet with whom we are linked.We are a keeper short so fully expect that 'approaches' have been made to 30 or 40 keepers about their availability.
This one has come to the fore because he is immediately available as West ham are looking to and have plans to replace.
If we do go for Clissens then Barca have to get their replacement in place which may take time.If the dominos don't all fall into line on that one then we will have Adrian and bloody well hope others in reserve to nab.
That said I fully expect Frank to get all his parts of the jigsaw in place well before the close of the window so no dramatic purchases last minutes....... outgoings maybe

Good sensible comments and reasoning, as usual.
Without doubt FdB is aware of the need for a new First choice keeper or would have been, and as you rightly say it will take time to get the man he really wants even if that takes right up to the end of the window. And in all fairness for all the stick he gets, WH does need replacing immediately as in reality is not exactly a disaster that needs replacing yesterday, patience is needed so as to get in the right man.

Possibly. But I just think he is a decent keeper and he presumably wouldn't be too expensive either. We need to fill a number of gaps in the squad and have limited funds. And yes, there aren't many obvious alternatives we sound likely to get at the moment.

Why are we looking at a cheap Wham reject?! It's a false economy to always think you can get a bargain. He was dropped last season coz he was poor hence Hart's arrival. It's not rocket science, you make good investments like Bentke & Luka - they pay off. Keeper is such an important position I find it frustrating we have not identified a proper long term replacement for Jules. I'm convinced we only plumped for Mandanda because it was a tempting package for us and look how that worked out ��

Hello there, a Hammer here.

Posted here before when Tomkins joined you.

In terms of Adrian, he would be a good signing and personally I'd be pissed off to see him go. I'm not convinced Hart is better than him, and Hart we've only got on loan whereas Adrian recently signed a long term contract.

If he does join you, here's what to expect: He's a great shot-stopper, and is especially good at saving penalties. I'd estimate he's saved about 30-40% of the ones he has faced in goal for us. He is very passionate and vocal, so the fans tend to take to him. He also has a very good attitude, and kept his head down when dropped once and then took his chance when re-introduced to the team. He is confident in himself and seems popular with teammates. He also was recently called up to the Spain squad, and given the quality of keeper they have that says a lot.

He does have the occasional error in him, usually due to being too rash. This may mean he comes out of goal unnecessarily or that he keeps the ball for too long at his feet due to overconfidence.

Overall, I'd be gutted to lose him and it would represent short-sightedness from our board as we'd likely be looking to get a keeper just like him next summer anyway.

Just thought I'd post that to let you know he definitely isn't one of our 'rejects'...

We probably can't continually spend 10-30m on every position though. In the last 12 months we have done it on Townsend, Tomkins, Benteke, Schlupp, PVA and Luka. Riedewald is going to cost close to 10m, the likes of Chambers/ BMI would be big fees too. If we can afford more on a better, more expensive keeper who wants to join us then great. But if we can't then Adrian may be a sensible move if we can get him for a reasonable fee.

Missed out big time when Begovic went to Bournemouth - top quality at a reasonable price. Great signing for them

Nigelbrag
24-07-2017, 10:08 AM
To be honest which keeper is out there that we have actually Seen perform to form a proper judgement that is a big improvement on Hennessey, that we could attract.
Yes Cillissen would be one, but has said wants to stay put, Pepe Raina is another, but could we attract him? these are keepers who would be an upgrade in my opinion, Ryan who signed for Brighton would have been interesting but still an unknown at this level, but we certainly missed the boat with Begovic a real shame.
So we have to leave it to FdB and his knowledge in the the Dutch market and keepers who's ability HE will be aware of, i certainly have no idea.
So that comes down to Adrian, firstly are we really interested or just paper speculation? my opinion on him is, a decent competent keeper who probably fits the bill for a club of Palace's standing with its limited budget, and that is the reality.
Is he much/any better or an upgrade on Hennessey is debatable, possibly slightly better hence why i keep an open mind, he reminds me of having similar quality to Robles at Everton, excellent on occasions but average on others. If i was to make a realistic choice of a premiership keeper that we could attract then he would be Fabianski, a good solid proven keeper that would give me confidence.

Yeah the 2 all game springs to mind where he threw the ball back into play. Absolute shocker.:shy:

Am I right in thinking he made a world class penalty save against us and Barnsley went on to win 1-0? Can't quite recall what year but I'm 90% sure Fan Zhiyi took the penalty as well.

Whether we get Adrian or not, we seriously need a new keeper this season. We can't carry on losing cheap goals because of poor goalkeeping. I don't particularly dislike Hennessey, but I have zero confidence in him when he plays so if I'm feeling like that, imagine what the players in front of him feel. A new confident and competent keeper would transform our team IMHO.

I think he may have saved a penno against Barnsley in a 0-0 draw

Its clear wayne is not good enough. Hes not commanding enough for a big keeper and hes too slow to get down to a ground ball.

I thought he played a blinder, saved a penalty and Barnsley beat us on his first visit back to Selhurst, they beat us the following season definitely and he had a blinder then too.

He's surprisingly quick at getting down to the low shots, that's not a problem.

Any mistakes he makes are usually when he flaps too much when coming for the high balls, as he doesn't always judge them very well.

To be honest, the first time I saw him play was in the cup game vs Newcastle and that was the one thing he really couldn't do.

He's got better at that. I think it's that coach BFS brought in.
Dominating the area is a weakness, organising the defence.

Not for me. Would say he's beaten far too often at low shots. Massive weakness of his also combined with his inability to command his area.

Hennessey may be 6ft 6ins tall but he is slow and pathetically weak. He also has the reaction speed of a tortoise. He has no strength in his puny legs to propel himself sideways to save shots or upwards to catch crosses.

He does not move his feet quickly enough...so he can get down to low shots, but does not reach as many as most top keepers.

Yes, he kind of falls onto them.
We need a new keeper. It's what we need most in my view. Adrian is very communicative, a leader for the defence. I can see why de Boer would like him.

Skiddo

He's got the right amount of cockiness in him for a proper keeper as well.

The ball boy moment at Selhurst was him being a right **** but that's what we need sometimes. School prefect Hennessy wouldn't say boo to a goose.

Hopefully it is a priority that we sign Adrian.

We really need a decent keeper, it has cost far too much in points lost over the last few seasons having a Championship standard keeper.

Adrian is a proven experienced Premiership upgrade on Hennessy and it is a no brainer that we sign someone of his calibre after missing out on Begovic.

But not many of us think those two sentences go together. Why do you think Randolph was able to keep him out of the Spammers side last season ?

I don't rate Adrian & would prefer us to look elsewhere but he is an upgrade on Hennessey.

He'll do for a season or two if it means we can get a half decent striker in as well.

Billic seemingly fell out with Adrian. A manager preferring one player over another doesn't automatically mean that one is better than the other...

Why do you think Hennessey was able to keep Mandanda out of the Palace side last season? Surely not footballing reasons?

Bilic was seemingly losing it at times last season, so I personally don't have any concerns about him not selecting Adrian.

Exactly, he isn't a world beater but we will struggle to get better value for money. Really can't see us getting a better keeper than Adrian fro under 12 million.

Because Steve didn't want to play for us so couldn't even get himself on the bench?? Played a reserve game and was responsible for both goals?

He's a very decent keeper. At 3m, that's a a bargain.
We can always upgrade on Hennessey next summer.

We all know you've got an agenda. We also know that Mandanda is a better goalkeeper than Hennessey, and with your answer you have proven my point.

Edit: maybe 'agenda' is the wrong word, and 'irrational hatred' or 'grudge that borders on obsession' would be more accurate.

Hilarious stuff Sssttteeevvveee chanter. Everything I have ever said has proven to be true including referring to him as the Emperors New Clothes because he wasn't very good. You sir are a lemming. It is irrational to love someone who has screwed this club over (Steve, Kebe, Pulis, Freedman, Dowie, Bruce) but there are still idiots who love some of these people. And as for Steve he has not shown himself to be a better keeper than Speroni now (not at his best) let alone Hennessy.

Wake up and smell the coffee:S::S:

Seen a West Ham site now that seems to confirm the Mail story although it understands the fee is more than 3M. Might be bollocks of course but as we were linked with him when BFS was here it seems reasonable to assume we've been keeping tabs on him for a while and with him wanting out of WH and us needing another keeper it does seem to make sense.

Would have no objection getting him in, seems a decent keeper.
