The point is irrelevant as it virtually never works for any goalkeeper. Still worth a try when you are going to lose anyway. Seems an utterly bizarre thing to criticise for.

How can it be worth a try if as you say it virtually never works?

Because you are going to lose anyway so why not? If it doesn't work, you've lost nothing. If it does, Jimmy Glass-style hurrah. Just seems a very odd thing to criticise. Of all the things to have a go at a goalkeeper for, I don't think I've ever heard anyone moaning about their lack of goalscoring prowess before. That's a new one on me.

He would've needed the o.k from the manager aswell, plenty of times a keeper wants to go up for corner in injury time but is told not to (presuambly to protect the GD although 4-0 defeat to Leicester rendered that a bit meaningless).

Because it ocassionally does, would be my guess.

And it is occasionally, as far as I know only 2 keepers in the PL era have scored when going up for a corner/free kick, and both have a Villa connection.

I was just walking out of Goodison when Schmeichal scored, we'd been utter garbage all game and we'd had enough.

I did exactly the same Lee even though I only live a few miles from Goodison - I was about a couple of hundred yards away when the cheers from the Villa fans was audible - we were poor that day

Heard rom a reliable source (the wife, so it's probably been posted on a Facebook group) that Reina has gone. Any truth in it?

He had certainly gone somewhere at the crisp bowl.

Has it been confirmed anywhere that Heaton and Wesley are allowed to play, if fit?

It's ambiguous but they won't be fit in time, anyway.

Havenít seen anything of him. He should be well over his injury by now.

occasionally?  only 4 goalkeepers have scored during PL  (10000+games) i think you mean very very rarely
