Petr Cech (1)


#782

Which is why I would give him a go :slight_smile:


#783

Just few games for us. Not enough to judge him.


#784

Exactly


#785

I believe there’s a reason why he’s like 26 and has about 50 senior appearances in his career.


#786

Cech was a decent signing when we got him, and his first season was ok but we haven’t had a top quality GK since Seaman and Lehman.
The lack of investment in this position since then has been pathetic, and apart from Cech, who was 10m, the most we have spent on a GK was around 3m.

Every PL winner has had a great GK, including us, so how we have gone for so long with such an obvious disregard for this important position, is another reason why we have rarely challenged for the PL since Lehman left, and also why our defence often looks chaotic.

Unless Leno has been bought to replace Cech, we are stuck with him for yet another season, and will have to rely on Emery to get him to improve his performances.

I know Sky are banter now but still this is too funny even in link form. Cech replacing the guy they replaced him with :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:


#788

Thiccc ! Here you go ladies :heart:


#789

What would he do at Chelsea? They would be crazy to have him as first choice.


#790

Did Unai bring a new gk coach?


#791

Yeah.


#792

Then I am curious to wait and see what he will do with our GKs. There’s a good chance our last defensive coaches and GK coaches etc. were just arse at coaching and the players are actually good enough.


#793

At 36 (I think) I don’t think anything is going to stop Cech’s continued decline.


#794

Gerry Peyton was definitely arse at coaching


#795

Javi Garcia was responsible for making Areola first choice keeper at PSG, with Trapp sitting on the bench. He’s supposedly very good at his job.


#796

Leno for the Golden Glove.

Who’s with me?


#797

Yea. This is really what I meant. And not surprising to see zero response to this point.


#798

Because I have faith in Garcia :slight_smile:


#799

Cech is old. A new GK coach is not gonna improve him.


#800

#801

Have Chelsea seen him play this past season?

Surely he’s the backup option to the other two haha
