Since it is so depressing to read the fishy these days (although understandable, we are doomed) I thought I’d try and think of something positive.

Eastwood. Great keeper and fills me with confidence which I haven’t had in that position for a while. Shame we haven’t had him all season.

He is much better than us currently, but if the conference doesn’t finish and we manage to stay up, I’d be over the moon having him as our number 1 next season, somehow.

He’s done good. And he’s taken Johnny Oster’s title:
“he’s a baby, he’s a baby!”


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Composure, decision making, distribution, positioning - alll tons better than Macca.

I actually think some of his kicking accuracy has been pretty poor. That aside though has looked promising so far , some smart saves yesterday but more importantly he is comfortable coming to catch a cross.

Premier League goalkeeper better than 4th Division goalkeeper shock.


40+ years of black and white striped misery.

Matete? He of the spinny spins? Didn't think he was much good against Harrogate, easily bullied off the ball and seemed more interested in showing how much he can spin like a ballerina over making something happen. He was even doing it when nobody was near him  . His one run beating two players was good but apart from that don't recall him doing anything constructive...Not that there was much to pick out in a very dull game.

Eastwood is clearly well trained and has been with Sheffield United since he was a kid, still on the books so they clearly see the potential there and he's obviously going to stand out playing in lower divisions. He's kept us to conceding 1 goal per match when we could easily be letting in more, the only ones he let in are ones that he didn't really have a chance of saving. When you look at goalkeepers from that level you notice how much more vision and anticipation they have on what's happening around them because you need to have that when facing players of that level. If his anticipation and positioning wasn't what it was then opposition players would easily make him look very silly.

Premier League goalkeeper better than 4th Division goalkeeper shock.


Tommy Forecast was also a Premier League goalkeeper and Barry from the local Sunday league pub team could have done a better job after four pints and a pie before the game.
