Dominic Fifield says we could be signing a free agent keeper outside of the window. Doesn't sound likely to be a first choice unfortunately. Is there a list of free agents around somewhere?

I do. He is lacking in so much especially when you consider his height. He should dominate his area but sits in his line reacting to things. That is my main gripe. I watch other keepers collecting crosses that hennessey would not dream if going for. He seems scared. His indecision probably makes the defence more edgy too. Bring back Gabon kiraly he was good.

Probably one of the worst in the league. But if we get Sakho I think we will have a real leader in the back line which will no doubt help Hen. I thought he looked pretty good when we were at our best under Allardyce.

We only stayed up because of Sahko and Sam's defensive masterclass tactically. Something that clearly wont be replicated by De Boer.

Wonder if this is the fall back plan. Anyway, we will have to look at it in the context of other deals we do/ don't get done tomorrow. I could live with Hennessey as our number 1 if we do good business elsewhere.

The thing is that I think De Boer's style of playing out from the back will always be uncomfortable for Wayne, apart from the other flaws to his game.

He's not good enough to make up for the deficiencies in our defence and our defence isn't good enough to make up for the deficiencies in him.

Probably why if we plug some of the holes in the defence with Sakho, we could probably live with WH.

Otherwise, we're looking for a quality keeper who isn't for sale and that really isn't going to work.

Controversial, but really don't see Hennessey as the weak(est) link in need of changing.

If he had a more settled back line (four) in front of him, with 2 commanding centre backs, then he would be ok - he played well at Liverpool for instance. The likes of Adrian are certainly no better.

Sakho, and a 2nd striker (Tosun) would represent a good days work for me.

To be fair to some of them, they have tipped over the age limit this season and have never been near the squad in reality - Pentreau, Inniss, Anderson, Lapado, while Kai Kai has been on the edge a few times. That is 5 players of whom 4 will be probably be looking for moves today once we have first team level replacements (being positive).

The only real senior clunker has been Mutch, plus Sako because of his injury issues.

Yes. Wickham not named in the squad last January.

Windsor_Eagle
01-09-2017, 08:28 AM
I'm pretty sure that a long-term injury does not classify as 'eligible to be registered'. I think it has something to do with the likelihood of the player being in contention before the registration period ends (1st Jan). Wickham will be out until Jan. I think, therefore, we have at least 1 space in the squad. Whether that is filled by a keeper or a striker is now the big question.

Shipp Ahoy!
01-09-2017, 08:34 AM
Yes. Wickham not named in the squad last January.

Question is, did we still submit 25? You can leave your choice of players out if you have 25 already... If you don't you are obliged to include them - not sure if there is a dispensation for long term injuries mind.

laboxers
01-09-2017, 08:56 AM
So I believe these are the players we have over the age of 21.

Ward, Kelly, Souare, PvA
Dann, Delaney, Tomkins, Sakho
Cabaye, Luka, McArthur, Puncheon, Mutch,
Schlupp, Zaha, Sako, Townsend, Kai Kai, Lee

Emergency loans can still exist, there is provision for it but it is likely that no available GK is about the only reason it would be allowed in the PL.

Its all a bit daft really anyway. Were Speroni and Hennessey to get injured, we could claim the Peterborough kid was injured as well and get someone like the Brondby keeper Gonenow on an emergency loan anyway (i think thats how keeper emergency loans work anyway).

So, if WH breaks a finger, and JS "gets a groin strain" we're on for one.

Could be we are taking a gamble on this scenario if things go wrong in GK dept, and using the freed up 25th place in squad on an out of contract striker.

It's known as making the best of a bad job, I suppose.

I've heard rumours that the management team have discovered Mutch is in fact quite a decent keeper, big, strong, being taller commands the box better than Speroni and gets down faster than Hennessey, and lack of pace not a problem as a goalie, although more likely to take out a marauding forward than wonderful Wayne. Which is why his potential loan moves were called off at the last minute.

Which is fantastic news, it means we can use the spare space for a striker

Emergency loans can still exist, there is provision for it but it is likely that no available GK is about the only reason it would be allowed in the PL.

This is what I was able to dig up concerning the emergency loans:

http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/deadline-day-summer-window-transfer-12538208?service=responsive
At the start of the 2016/17 campaign, FIFA introduced new rules which mean that the emergency loan window would no longer exist.

http://www.miltonkeynes.co.uk/sport/football/mk-dons/transfer-window-must-be-the-same-for-the-whole-of-europe-says-neilson-1-8107393
Last season saw the first time the 'emergency loan' window abolished for clubs in England - a system Neilson was used to up in Scotland.

Though the Premier League website suggests that the FA doesn't particularly care about FIFA rules :)
https://www.premierleague.com/news/60177
Exceptional temporary transfer (aka emergency loan) – Under rule V.7.6.2 clubs the temporary transfer of a goalkeeper in “exceptional circumstances”, subject to Board permission, can take place outside the transfer window.

Checking the handbook itself confirms:
V.7.6.2. the Temporary Transfer of a goalkeeper which in its absolute discretion the Board may allow in circumstances it considers to be exceptional;

Though it should be noted that:

It requires FA approval, which isn't guaranteed
The FA would be approving this player in absolute defiance of FIFA's laws, and if they decide to make an example of us, we could forfeit matches in which the loanee participated.
There's no certainly that "we forgot to sign a 3rd keeper" will be judged as a valid "emergency" by the FA
As far as I can tell, there is no getting around the 25 man squad requirement, so we STILL could not add a free agent striker if we were going to use an emergency loan, unless of course that loanee was U21.


And this is all apart from the simple question of where would we get this loan keeper? The big clubs won't risk getting trouble with FIFA, and the clubs around us won't risk sending us a player that can keep us up at their expense. They would certainly prefer to watch us field a U21 goalkeeper or put Sahko in goal (which he has done at PSG).

I think the club has given us an explanation. See the articles in the Telegraph ('dead man walking'), Independent and Guardian. They read pretty much like unofficlal press releases from the club. FDB is still manager so the club can only provide this information to the fanbase by leaking it to the press.

True. If both keepers get injured we are ****ed. But we're ****ed if Benteke gets injured or suspended. I'd be of the view that given one striker injury would **** us, but we need two keeper injuries to have the same impact, a striker is the bigger priority. This is especially true as you might sometimes choose to bring on another striker for tactical reasons (something we effectively can't do at the moment other than by using Lapado), when we wouldn't look to make that kind of change with a keeper.

It's crazy though that we find ourselves in a position where we have to decide to try and get a last minute reject freebie keeper, or a last minute reject freebie striker, as we failed to buy anyone in either position despite desperately needing to.

I believe that under the old rules you could only bring in an emergency loan if we only have one fit goalkeeper on our books. We still have Matthew Funnell and Oliver Webber in the under 23s / under 18s so we would have to plead that they are totally inexperienced for Premier League Football if both Wayne and Jules are injured.

I'm fairly sure the emergency loan goalkeeper is additional to the 25 man squad rule.

I can't see we would be acting in defiance of FIFA' s rules if the Premier League has this as one of its rules.

dave_who_ru
03-09-2017, 07:57 PM
Apparently the FA put in some transitionary measures but no idea, so far, how long these last:

Clubs are permitted to sign a goalkeeper on a seven-day ‘emergency loan’ basis if they do not have a senior goalkeeper that has made five first-team apps

Clubs will be able to recall a goalkeeper at 24 hours’ notice from a loan at another club if they are unable to field two fit goalkeepers in their 18-man matchday squad.

A player registered on a standard loan may continue to play non-first team football for his parent club during the term of his loan period.

The question is still going to be asked why we only have 2 senior goalkeepers.

Although thinking about it does the 5 first-team appearances apply to any club. Say we did have a third senior goalkeeper, unless he has put in 5 first team appearances elsewhere, the chances that he might play in the first team are likely to be limited if the main two goalies are always fit.

Because many of those same people will probably decry the guy as shit after about five minutes, when he does not cleanly catch the first cross that comes within 20 yards of him.

Or he will he described as the new Buffon, and the manager is crazy not to play him regularly.

How many times has a 3rd choice keeper been used by any club in the PL?

Not often of course, but it happens.

What are we going to do if both pick up an injury/suspension? We'd be a Premier League football club with an outfield player starting in goal.

Emergency loan.

How many did Jordan Pickford concede?

Doesn't automatically make him a bad goalkeeper.

We need a capable third option 'til January. If one of WH or JS get injured we'll be firmly up Shit Creek.

No we won't, this ironically might be our get out of jail free card. I believe we would be allowed an emergency loan? This would enable us to get an upgrade

You are only allowed to Emergency Loan a keeper if you named 3 in your squad to begin with. We even managed to **** that up. So if Hennessey and Speroni both ended up unavailable we would have to play Dion-Curtis Henry.

I thought that but it is not actually in any rules/regulations i have seen.

If both ere injured then i think the PL board would look to protect the integrity of their competition.

That was before football officially began in 1992. The Les Sealy fiddle was a Uri Geller-like bending of the rules even back then. Rules have changed a lot since then.

If you'd only named two then there's more chance that any such request would be refused and you'd have to get by with a youth keeper.

Gosh just like the 1990s. How did football cope. :D

Interesting thought. The boy is well thought of but clearly not yet ready for the senior team.

No of course but it could be the only option should the other two be unavailable.

Lindegaard isn't that bad of a keeper to be honest. As much as I despise having Hennessey in goal if we use up our one squad space I think I would rather use it on a striker though. Rather we went all out in January and spent big on a top rate Goalkeeper.

He was very good at United in my opinion. If he'd have been signed for a big fee and rep (etc) then he'd have got more chances and credit.

I'd be more concerned about his spells since.

If conceding 18 goals in 10 games doesn't make you a bad keeper, please enlighten me as to what does.

I can see a cinario where Big Hen injures himself. , then we have no option, but to break Speroni's arm for the cause.

Escape to Victory!

With a very poor defense in front of you, you can be the worlds absolute best goalkeeper and still concede a shedload of goals. You have to take the full circumstances into account. Those sort of statistics are misleading and meaningless.
