Is Kalinic *that* bad?!

Gabor Kiraly in his pyjamas wins that competition for me....


Yes, yes he is.

I was there for his league debut away at Wigan. Absolute horror show.

Haha, ok. I seem to also remember a goalie (Moreira?) who didn't even manage a save in the warm ups! Perhaps I have mixed them up.

He played in the league at Yeovil was it? Was fucking hopeless but saved a penalty. Jesus we had a run of comedy keepers, let's not forget Fruit T. Bunn the Baker too.

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.

Olsen is a high level international keeper, Steer isnt.
Welcome for your half a year loan stay Robin.

Welcome Robin. Another upgrade in the squad. On Jed, who must be off on loan?

Yes, it's really quite surprising some people have never heard of him. He played against England in the last World Cup and has acquitted himself very well for his country. I remember him thwarting Spain in the Euros last summer as well.

Agree. Short term deal to give Jed some much needed game time on loan somewhere youd think

Id imagine Steer has pushed for it leaving us needing our own loan and Olsen was available with experience and a good pedigree. Maybe Sheff Utd have a half decent keeper of their own who gave them no reason to be dropped.

Good move to get in a decent keeper, just in case Martinez picks up any injuries or infections in the Jan/Feb and March internationals.

Read a comment that he's a good shot stopper but struggled with the hurley-burley of the championship, and the first thing that came into my head was 'Nyland'.

Seems an odd one. Sheff U fans seemed delighted to see the back of him.

He was at Everton last season and played a couple of games.

Looked solid for Sweden but saw him a bit for Roma a few years back and he made loads of errors so miles off Martinez standard.

As others said let's hope he just performs backup role. Would've just kept Steer for another couple of months personally.
