Which is why he must start against Boro, We need the fans on side, Hearing his name being read out with give us the lift.

we can all see it. Annoyingly, the new goalkeeping coach is Welsh and probably has a side interest in Hennesey playing. A sad state of affairs.

I hate to tell all you Hennessy haters out there but he isnt the main problem, its the 10 in front of him. Granted he has made mistakes but to keep singling him out is not going to help him or us.

We need to get behind the team and lift them and not boo and walk out after one mistake.

Hennessey is literally the worst goalkeeper in the division and the worst many of have seen in our supporting lifetimes. Only Chris Day and Scott Flinders come close.

You can see the panic when the ball goes anywhere near him. Total lack of confidence.

The reason that I - and many other recent poster - think that this won't work is that our defence just isn't good enough to keep the opposition at bay for 90 minutes.
Yep heard Tony cascarino saying the same , I hope Sam sees this or is instructed by Sp after all he he don't like it he can resign

We are not in a situation to try and help out a useless keeper. Speroni should start against Boro as the crowd will be up for it as soon as his name is read out.

Hennesey has had chance after chance and he keeps failing. He received great support from the fans at Stoke and he was still useless

I think he will. He has not seen the best of Wilf in his brief time here, mainly due to him being away. Then Wilf had his worst performance of the season imo on Saturday.

Townsend on the right, Sclupp on the left and then Wilf off the bench on 60 minutes when there is space. It may just work, but I pray for Sam if he does this and it does not come off!!!

Wilf off the bench has certainly worked a treat previously. It could happen.

He was fine and whilst i am no hennessey fan the idea he is the worst we have had in the last 25-30 years is simply daft if you ask me.

Day, Flinders, nash, price, Kolinko were all worse in my opinion.

God you are boring. Odd that statistics don't support your view and that Speroni does so well in training he can't displace him. Truth hurts. What are your views on Dann, Ward, Delaney, Punceon, Townsend, etc.?

We can not draw our way to safety. We must score goals so its 100% got to be Remy and Benteke/Campbell no point in three non scoring midfield players drop one of them for Remy. AT is starting to play well and looks the fittest so start with him on the left where he plays the best.

Statistics.....lol.

Like the one you posted which said Hennessey is better than Lloris and on par with De Gea? I think i'll leave the stats and actually watch the games unlike you who clearly reads the marks out of ten in the papers the next day rather than actually see it with your own eyes.

Love the sentiment of this thread.

However. I just don't believe that Sam will adopt the kind of tactics that some of us crave. I would like us to take the Liverpool approach to closing down opposition defenders - defending from the front. Instead, Sam seems intent on a strategy that involves compressing the defence and midfield and letting the opposition have 60% of the pitch. Interestingly this is the same as Pardew's philosophy. The reason that I - and many other recent poster - think that this won't work is that our defence just isn't good enough to keep the opposition at bay for 90 minutes.
I would love us to play like Liverpool too. We just don't have the players, though. There's a reason why Klopp wanted shot of Benteke, he just doesn't fit that way of playing, you know, running and that.

As for the rest, well they missed out on half a season of conditioning thanks to Pardew. They won't get that back any time soon.

So you have to play with what you have got. Another lesson Pardew found difficult to comprehend.

I disagree about the defence. They are capable, they have just had their confidence shot to pieces by dismal tactical and physical coaching. A couple of weeks to get together without internationals and Cup games to get the basics right and to blend in the new players should see us right. COYP

Day, Flinders, nash, price, Kolinko were all worse in my opinion.

Agree on all but miller i think.

One thing is certain he is most certainly not the worst keeper we have had in the last 30 years.. Not even close.

He's probably better than suckling also in truth.
