Love Brad, proper Villa keeper and my favourite since Bosnich.

Imagine him playing now behind the 09/10 defence, we'd have conceded 5 goals that season.

Can't argue with that.

Great keeper and to think TSM was going to let him go on a free.

Very impressed with Brads performance yesterday and how he reacted at full time. He was the most animated of all the players.

No he wasn't - McLeish offered him a new deal but he chose not to sign it as he was never going to be first choice.

And who can blame him.

He should never have lost his place back to Given in early 2012 so I don't blame him for leaving either. How long was it between him leaving and Lambert taking over as surprised no one came in and agreed a deal with him in those few weeks.

Their loss, thankfully.

When you consider all the attributes required to be a good Keeper he ticks every box. I've been going down to Villa Park since the Spink era and I think he is probably the best all round Keeper we have had in that time.

Another outstanding performance yesterday, he's really taking control of his defence now. Only concern is that one of the CL teams will be sniffing around him soon.

An exceptional performance yesterday.  Not just the saves but the crosses he collected really impressed me.

The only areas I'd like to see him improve, and these are minor quibbles, are his organisation of the defence and that he throws rather than kicks the ball more often.

Great keeper and played a key part in the goal yesterday. Long may this form continue. Wonder if he will play v spurs or Steer will get a game.

Great shot stopper and he saved us from dropping two points yesterday.
I still think he occasionally flaps at crosses though.

I think the point there Saunders is that he is there to flap. He takes risks-they nearly always come off. When you are a forward and you know a keeper hesitates-it makes it a gift-Brad is instilling the opposite. They know he is going to come off his line and they hesitate.
