The man with the model looks deserves his chance between the sticks against City.

McGinn is injured, and a bit small IMHO.

I've not been registered in time to play.

For all his experiences and his admirable qualities in distribution (though at times questionable) what the heck was he paying at for that goal.
My gosh that summed up the lack of confidence in the defence. (Particular that defender Guilbert)
Though that was Reina choice alone and he's the one at fault.
If he stays on line or at least somewhat nearer to goal it's far harder for Barnes to score but no he does some walkabout
Now I was questioning of Nyland when he made errors so Reina has to be really take into account of his fuck up .

Hopefully this idiot doesn't play for us ever again.  I'd rather invest the time into getting Nyland ready for a long, hard season in the Championship.

After tonight, I hope the FA/PL look into players betting on games. I can't think of any other reason for his performance tonight.

Agreed 100%, send him back. Nyland has some potential and worse case scenario we might be able to sell him for a few quid. This pot bellied clown made 5 league appearances in the last two seasons at Milan. Is it any surprise his decision making is miles off.

He played well for us at the start and I could see the logic in the signing (given I constantly call for more proven players to be signed I'd look a bit of a hypocrite)

Difficult to argue he isn't becoming a liability now though.

Would be amazed if he starts on Saturday.

He rivals Drinkwater in the fitness stakes.  He's got a right belly on him.

I wouldn't even have him in the squad for the last run of games.  Nyland first choice, Sarkic as back up.  Build for the future, and don't think that having a flabby, once decent keeper is going to help, because it plainly isn't.
