Morning all
Another great win, performance was not our best but to win when your not at your best is a brucie.
Thoughts on our Goalie situation, I think (and I'm not his biggest fan) is we bite the bullet with Cassilla, unless Caprille is good enough to step up. My thinkin is, if we got rid, no one would loan us a goalie to sit on the bench, older keepers who might be happy to sit on the bench would demand a big wage packet, can't see the likes of Ramsdale, Johnstone signing to sit on the bench, and both would be demand a large fee, money that could be spent elsewhere.
Unless there's a freebie out there somewhere on low wages.

Casilla was one of our highest earners when he joined so we were keen to get rid, however, maybe his wage isn't too bad for the Prem and like you say maybe we would have to pay even higher to get anyone else so perhaps just stick like you say unless someone actually buys him off us, which is unlikely.

I think he did well.
To be honest as well as mez has done I did feel slightly more confident with experience there. Mez is a better shot stopper but cas way better distribution and command of area.

Casilla distribution is awful and was even worse than that yesterday.

His defenders don’t trust him so didn’t pass it much to him like they do meslier and he made me panic every time the ball came near our net

I’m glad he kept a clean sheet because I don’t mind the guy and was happy to see him make a few saves.

It's Casilla's tenancy to do something utterly crazy that worries me. You never know when he is going to have a bizarre moment and cost us a goal and there often doesn't seem to be any reason for it other than really poor decision making. He's a decent stopper so for free kicks and corners etc I feel safe enough it's more when a team are countering like Direby in the playoffs.

Aus from a good post ( further down) to a ridiculous post from you above. Meslier is already so, so far ahead of Kiko in all aspects of goalkeeping.

Someone like Asmir Begovic would make a fair backup i think. experienced prem keeper would be a good influence on Meslier i would have thought. Probably would take similar wages to Casilla and could move Casilla on if someone would take him. That's subject to Bournemouth not going up of course.
