Pretty shit by all accounts. And by all accounts, I mean twitter. I've never heard of him, hopefully never have to see him play either.

Welcome!

He's the guy who Roma brought in to replace Allison when Allison went to Liverpool.

So at one point he was very highly rated.
For £12Million, so he must be half decent

He only played 27 games for Roma. The only longish spells he has had at any clubs were 71 games for Copenhagen and 53 games for Malmo.

Pretty obvious SG doesnít rate Steer and I canít blame him. Good shot stopper but thatís it

What exactly is it that so many people dislike about Steer?  He might not be as good as Martinez, but there is nothing he has done in his time with us that makes me think he isn't a perfectly respectable second choice keeper, and from some of the Olsen clips he definitely seems much more steady. 

That's without the contribution he made to getting us promoted, which given he was 3rd or 4th choice for much of the time until Smith took over was pretty remarkable.  Frankly, he was the first goalkeeper we'd had in about 6 years who didn't give me the shits anytime the ball went near him.

I think Martinez is an excellent keeper but I also appreciate the job Steer has done for us.

His "length of reach" isnt up to standard for the level we are heading for IMO

Irrespective of not being particularly rated by our new manager, which may or may not be the case, doesn't Steer want away anyway? I'm sure I heard that somewhere. He'll never displace Martinez, but we're offering him about one game a season, and I think he's good enough to stake a claim for the No.1 jersey somewhere.

We owe Jed Steer a deep debt of gratitude, for his penalty saves and mind games against the Albion in the play-off semi second leg.

Good luck to Olsens today vs Manchester City could do with two like Mary Kate and Ashley

Certainly should get a good look at how he is today with Man City attack, expect him to be busy. Robin Olsen will be keen to impress and at least he's experienced so have to look at the positives as tough ask to keep a clean sheet.

I can't recall every seeing him but 56 international caps for a team that usually has decent keepers is a decent indicator that he shouldn't be a huge liability.
