Thread change, GR was correct.

First and foremost this is not a "Macca" bashing thread.

I have noticed that in recent weeks there's been quite a few on here stating it's time for a change between the sticks and just wanted to gauge people's real thoughts on James.

Now, for me in 10 years he's pulled of saves worthy of any "save of the season" whichever league we look at, from the premier down.

My gripe is his delivery and lack of being able to command his 6 yard box.

So it's really time for a change or do we accept his plus points outweigh any negatives within his all round game..

Again this is not a "let's slate" Macca nor a scapegoat type of thread, just open for discussion.

Have to say does look like a Macca 'bashing thread' by singling him out like that

He does play in a position where you can't avoid singling him out. Maybe "New First Choice Keeper" might have been a more sensitive subject?

Whether it’s a player bashing thread or not his inability to command his six yard box is a major flaw in his game and he could have little argument if he was rested and the other lad given his chance.

It depends on the quality of Crocombe.

We all know Macca’s qualities and flaws… what we haven’t seen is what Max’s are. Hurst sees them both each day in training so he’s in the best position to make the call!

James McKeown is a 5th tier goalkeeper just like Max Crocombe who we pipped Boston United to the signing of at the 11th hour.

Every goalkeeper at this level will have strengths and weaknesses. If they were a decent all-rounder then they would probably be playing in League 1 or above.

It would be a sensible move to give Crocombre a run of games, he looked decent with the little he had to do at Bromsgrove,  but we'll never know until we give him a proper chance.

I think its time to give the lad a run.
He must be wondering why the hell he was signed as he's not even on the subs bench and on matchdays he's behind Pearson!

I would have liked to have seen Macca work on improving his weaker areas over the last 500 games.  I see little or no progress here in his development.
