Who was it that said he was fat and out of shape? I said to a friend the other day that if I was in as good as shape as he is when Im his age Id be delighted...then I had a shock when I realised that Im actually older than Reina. How the fuck did that happen?!

I still find it hard to admit that I'm old enough to be most of our squad's dad.

Reina coming in just proves there is so much more to the keeper position than just shot stopping. Confidence and a cool head is crucial, it transfers through the whole team, giving every player a lift. Having someone between the sticks who knows what they're doing, been there done that etc. You need experience in a team and the keeper position is not a bad place to have it. I just hope he can keep it up and we push on now and get well out of that bottom 3. Just need West Ham to fail in their 2 games in hand and we might just pull it off.

I felt it was a bit harsh for Nyland to lose his place but I have to say I was very impressed with Reina last night.

That punch he made second half to take the ball of Deeneys head was worth every penny.

He's got to be our 'biggest' acquisition in a long time, a player of global renown. Here, I suspect, as much for his character as his ability. He was excellent last night, and in that photo on the post-match thread of the immediate aftermath of the winner, he's turned to the crowd and joining in.
Any team worth its salt needs a strong spine. I like him already.

Very impressed with him. Doesn't stop talking and looks fully committed to everything he comes for.

I wonder if he knows he's living Gianluca Pagliuca's dream?

I think we play West Ham on the final day, too.

Lets hope we're well out the bottom 3 by then and we can enjoy it. Maybe even put them down as a bonus. Only room for one claret and blue team in the Premiership ;D

I'm hoping we are safe by then, play the reserves at West Ham and send Arsenal down.

I remember somebody giving me a copy of Claret & Blue magazine in the mid to late nineties which listed the date of birth of each member of the squad and feeling old because I was older than most of the players. Now I am very well aware I am old enough to be the father of most of our players.

So far he's had relatively little to do from a pure goalkeeping perspective; a decent save from Maupay and an excellent one from Deeney, although he did inadvertently set him up before the save.

However, as has already been said, I think it's more his presence, composure and 'man management' that has benefited us most so far. So I now get why he was brought in even though Nyland had done quite well since Heaton's injury.
