The memory isnt what it was but the Leicester first aside, has Pepe made any other errors that have led to goals?
Nothing that direct but the second against bournemouth, the first against Soton was poor, the second, I may be harsh but he's not exactly a huge keeper, and at his age, coming up for a corner when you know you can't run back is too risky. I think generally, his handling has been suspect and as per always with Reina, he's a bit too punch happy for me. I think he's rusty and well past his best and ultimately a liability. He's deciding on things his legs won't back him up on. 10 years ago he might have marauded out and got that ball before Barnes. I've never particularly seen the fuss about Reina, that being said.

It was last 10 seconds so was worth the risk. Yes we might go down (eventually) on GD but I'd rather be looking at the last minute one conceded to Spurs as far more fateful.

Reina was decent enough in that Spurs game and the ones before but Southampton and Leicester were really poor so he'd have probably been dropped for Chelsea game and he certainly won't be here for our next game given all the keepers on our books could well be fit by then, certainly Steer will be.

Hasn't been well it seems.

I missed this. I hope he and his family are all safe now. He might be one of the players Dean Smith referred to as not going to be available.

In his short time with us Reina pulled out a few 'worldy' saves but dropped a few bollocks when he went walkabout. For me he was an old style keeper. Good at making saves but not particularly good with his feet.

I thought passing (with feet) was supposed to be one of his strengths?

I thought he was excellent with the ball, apart from the Leicester horror show I was pretty impressed. Maybe crowd nerves given our league position made many prefer a keeper who wasnt so focussed on keeping possession.

We seem to have had more than out fair share of goalkeeping fuckwits in recent times.

The list of players from the last decade that will be forgotten would probably be a long list. The turnover from MON's appointment to the present day has been the most prolific thing about us.
