When he as at the top of his form he was much more than that really coordinating the back 1/3rd of the pitch. A real lesson as to how there's more to goalkeeping than simply stopping shots. I don't think he ever quite recovered psychologically after breaking his finger.He was a good shot stopper but no more than that, that’s why he never got a move any higher. No club ever offered him a big money move else he would of gone, same as every other player who ever left us. Now he is not even much of a shot stopper, the rest of his game is all over the place.
No room for sympathy in football, he needs to be replaced.
I'm not arguing that he should be kept on, he obviously hasn't been up to it this season, but for fans to be calling him a cnut is totally and shamefully out of order.
