Having just watched it back, it looks even worse.  Not only does he not appear to shout but there was no need to go for it.  It was going to land on Jedinak's head - The best header of the ball in our side.

Absolutely no need for him to go into that cluster of players and it looked a very poor decision.

Harsh. At least give him a few games to adapt. I'm sure if terry was still here and we had the whole playing players in their right positions thing going on he'd look a bit better

Hopefully he will pick up, but how many games do you give him if he continues to make mistakes which cost us goals?

well i'm guessing if we lose and he plays a major part in that, then he will be dropped, but he won't be the first 'keeper to find british football a bit of a new experience. there's a few in the premiership suffering that currently that cost a fair bit more.

Fair enough and hopefully it won't come to that.

How hard can it be for a goalkeeper to adjust to the English game? If he's a professional footballer then surely the basics of goalkeeping are the same whatever league or country you play in. This guy is no good and shouldn't have been signed in the first place.

His howler against Wigan and indeed one other time in that game almost costing another goal came as a result of him being deep and on his heels and not coming out to clear back passes, this game and with no need whatsoever he charges out through a ridiculous amount of players to try and punch a throw in.

Very worrying start it has to be said.

Wouldnt be so bad if our 2nd goalkeeper signed this summer didnt look even worse in his debut and looked an even bigger calamity waiting to happen.

Did any of our coaches/scouts ever actually see these 2 play before putting pen to paper?

Yep so hopefully he's better than he's showing at the moment and it's just nerves of settling into a new club, new country and new league.

I will say what I always say when yet another player puts on a Villa shirt and fails to produce what we bought him for.  Time is a luxury you cannot afford especially in the Championship.  We appear to have bought Nyland and Moreira both of whom are either poor goalkeepers or who are mentally weak.  By the time we find out which it is a quarter of the season will be gone.

he's not an accident waiting to happen, he's an accident that's constantly happening.

Howler against Wigan? It was Jedinakís fault. An experienced international footballer who played a terrible backpass. Might Nyland have reacted a little quicker? Maybe, but it certainly wasnít his fault. Yes it was poor yesterday. But to completely write him off as some are doing is just ludicrous after 2 games.

The error wasnít great today, but I still think itís way too early to determine that Nyland or Moreira are poor or mentally weak.
