Quoted from The Old Codger
He’s a keeper whose weaknesses are as obvious as his strengths. Problem is that distribution and mobility are becoming more important in the game and they are two of his weaker facets.

He’s ok at this level but so is Crocombe. Crocombe is probably substantially cheaper.


I’m told by a person with strong links to Boston they offered him 700 a week  we offered more hence why we got him , so I’d assume he’s loads cheaper than macca

We will probably get 2 keepers for what Macca is costing. Not knocking him; he negotiated a good contract when his stock was at it's highest.


I still find it quite bizarre that Fenty cut him such a deal and then moaned about it. He must have signed it off!

I got told he was on the verge of signing as their first choice keeper and we came in at the last minute doubling his offer from Boston.

Key point, I've been a massive Macca fan over the years but we are now a mid table conference side, no way can we afford to have one of our highest if not the  highest earners not even in the squad.

I don't know what the average fifth division wage is but £1200 for a second choice keeper seems like a lot of money to me.

Since player's salaries are private and confidencial, I like to know where you all got your figures from?

Does it really matter if McKeown (Macca is a different person), earns £X amount? He's under contract. You can't just magically save money from the budget if you decide you don't want him any more. Unless another club wants to come in and offer us terms, we've got McKeown's, Cromcombe's and everyone else's wages to pay for the foreseeable. The same goes for Scannell, Grant and so forth. At least is seems as though Rose won't be a burden for much longer.

For what it's worth, Crocombe has made similar blunders to those we've seen from McKeown but he doesn't yet have the narrative that he's apparently useless. Unfortunately, the daft errors are what happens with 5th tier goalkeepers. Well, they happen with all goalkeepers, but more frequently the lower down the leagues you find yourself.

From the little I've seen, I'd say that Crocombe's kicking is a good bit better than McKeown's. No idea about the rest of his play as I've only seen the home games, during which he's made a blunder in one leading to a goal and didn't have a chance with the winner in the other.
