top signing

goalkeeper is the most important position in the team imo

never agreed with those who were happy to go with what we had and didnít see it as a priority
our back up keepers are ok to be honest but you really need a top end goalie with authority on the pitch and Reina is exactly that

I think he has been an excellent signing and could even be the difference between us going down or staying up.

He is brilliant. I think we should try get him in the summer for 12 months.

I've not seen a keeper so cool with a ball at his feet. Doesn't matter if it's in his own six yard box with an opposing striker incoming.

In fact, he could easily be a replacement for DD in midfield.

He hasnít put a foot wrong since getting here. Aside from his ability which he clearly still has in abundance his attitude has been superb. Proper player and leader. Just superb yesterday and you can see how personally he takes it all when heís beaten.

We joked yesterday that at Wembley we should play Nyland in goal and Reina at the base of midfield.

Felt sorry for him yesterday, he kept us in it, saved a penalty and his teammates still fucked it up.

Agree about the comments regarding Reina.

I was just a little surprised he choose to kick the ball so quickly which led to the goal. I thought he might have took a yellow to run the clock down a little. Only a small criticism as he has been excellent.

Good point.  So many ifs buts and maybes.

It still hurts.

He is certainly more of a Friedel than a Given when it comes to signing an older keeper.

Heís been excellent for us so far, and would be a good move to sign him permanently on a 2 year deal if the price is right in the summer.

He's clearly superb, having him and Heaton for the next couple of seasons would be brilliant although i'm not sure how you'd keep them both happy.
