Does it matter then ? i mean really matter to you ? why not just enjoy a very unexpected victory instead of talking about what you see as gramatical shortcomings of fellow fans . christ you must be a bundle of hope and joy when we lose ..

His only weakness seems to be his kicking when rushed, but he’s constantly making brilliant saves now. He’s been a superb signing.

Let's be honest, when we played West Ham away less than a year ago we had Wayne in goal and lost. Yesterday we had Vicente in goal and won, with much the same outfield players/strategy. Guaita made a couple of superb saves that Hennessey would more than likely not have made, and there's the difference.

Great signing.

He's kind of like a morph of my 3 favourite palace keepers, Nige, Gabor and Jules.

Agree with all of the plaudits for Guaita but one thing that has stuck out in the past 2 matches is how woeful he is with his left foot clearances. An obvious thing for opposing managers and tbh a problem for our defenders to think about.

Everything else is groovy as they (used to) say.

Best keeper outside top 4

Shocking that WH kept him out for so long

We would be solid bottom half at best if WH had played these 8 games

Fantastic keeper

WH may or may not have saved the shots but he would not have punched the ball clear and that is a must have skill for any top keeper. I thought the point blank save was far better then he has been given credit for and his handling was top class. RH gave him time to adjust and that has paid dividends.

Guaita new song to - Snap! Rhythm is a Dancer


We needed a keeper
Guaita was the answer
Watch him flying through the air

he'll defy your striker
And your dodgy diver
You'll never beat him in the air

Ohhh oh, Vinnie Guaita
Ohhh oh, with his bleach blonde hair
Ohhh oh, Vinnie Guaita
Ohh oh Ohh oh Ohh oh

Vicente came through Valencias academy played for them a bit before moving on to get game time due to a combination of injury and managers prefering other players. He's just in a different category of GK. The type that we've haven't had access to for years. The difference is this time we've gotten him as he comes into his prime not picking him up based on potential. People slag Dougie off but he has found several gems at this club and done it entirely on the cheap.

I still think purely based on ability, Mandanda is just as talented, if not more talented than Vicente. But he never really wanted to be here. Fortunately, we got the top class foreign goalie signing right the second time, and as you say, credit to Dougie

I don't think it's shocking. He did take a little while to settle and adapt to life here. Wayne was also in good form at the start of last season. Roy likes to ease players in, look at the bigger picture and it appears to work.

That’s why I said purely based on ability. Just because a player doesn’t show it in a short spell at one club doesn’t mean he doesn’t possess it.

Yep - he needed to learn (some) English before establishing himself. Fairly important for a keeper to speak the language.

He is Speroni 2.0 - very similar in style and personality. A direct upgrade. And he clearly loves it here.

Has the awareness to be in the right place generally. Moves more elegantly than Hennessey. No more Ent like antics.

Makes all the difference.

Guaita has improved this season. He is so much more confident and successful in coming for high balls into the box, he was average at that last season, I think that is a major benefit for the defence.
