Reading between the lines (his trial appears quite extensive) and chatting to someone at the club, I'm expecting him to be our second keeper - any thoughts?

First time watching him yesterday when he came on for the second half. As with the others, it's difficult to judge against weak opposition but the one thing i did notice was his constant talking and organising of those in front of him. He seemed very confident and vocal but was largely untroubled.

Needs to be good enough to challenge McKeown to be the starting goalie.

No idea if he is good enough, but happy to trust RS & PW.....they'll have seen plenty of keepers in their time.

My opinion is we need a GK who is good enough to be a number one if needed as James McKeown has never had a proper challenge .

Dean Henderson came in and was number one for a bit but now James has no competition so hopefully whoever comes in will really push him .

You have to be careful though.

I'm lead to believe that Henderson returned to Man U coz someone really pushed him  


Why?

I heard it was the coach  


Då ska vi vända hem     Then we shall turn home
då vill vi dit igen             there we want to be again
Till det ställe som             To the place from
vi ifrån en gång kom     which we once came
     
För längtan finns             For the longing is there
hos folk som minns             in people who remember
Den tid som var             The time that was
finns i drömmen kvar     remains in dreams

One year contract with the option of another year if Grimsby Town wishes to take it, that's  according to Russell Slade's video interview after the Barnsley game.

Looks like Killip approached Grimsby Town. In Killip's video interview, he mentions contacting Paul Wilkinson to see if the club needed an extra goalkeeper, having known him from being at Norwich.

From the age of 7-years old he spent 10 years at Chelsea! in the youth sides, probably had some of the best coaching available to him in the world.

Nice to see a player graft and work hard instead of sitting back and letting an agent or club try find him
