    My take on it too. He didn't need to come out that far in the first place, and he compounded the error by initially pursuing Aguero when he ran away from the goal.

    The shrug of the shoulders afterwards as if it wasn't his responsibility was laughable.

    I really meant it more of a general statement that I really only consider very few keepers THAT bad, that they're absolute liabilities.

    For me, a keeper like Robert Green is pretty awful, even though he has matches where he can be an absolute hero. I hear (I don't watch Wigan often) that Al Habsi is having a crappy season (that looks the case statistically). None of the Southampton keepers have been good either. Oh yeah, Brad Jones is pretty **** too. Looked solid for a few games then...nah, should never be a 2nd option for us.

    From what I've seen Federici at Reading is the worst keeper in the Premiership. Green is terrible too (although not first choice) and Jaaskelainen looks like he's had his day and eaten it.

    On an unrelated note, Chelsea V Barca in April 09 was a shambles, wasn't it?

    Also apropos of nothing, didn't Harry Redknapp manage a team who featured in the Champions League "within the last three or four years"?

    Rob Green really is poor, has always struck me as such. Seems to have built his reputation on the fact that he tends to make several decent saves per match, whilst for some reason everyone watching ignores the fact that the sides he's played in have conceded loads of goals.

    Brad Jones defo a good shout too, he's seriously dross.

    Not sure about Al Habsi. Strikes me as being totally inconsistent, and often looks really really bad. But I get the impression he's actually a bit better than his horrible errors suggest.

    So far as keepers go, I don't think there are many in the Premiership who are truly awful, most are at the very least serviceable. Now that Almunia has been sacked off, of course. Fabianski out of contract in the summer too.

    Also the moment where RVP was sent off for having a shot a second later than the whistle in a stadium filled with 90k of shrieking Catalonians.

    Thing is some of these games will be a bet on first throw in with teams booting it out straight from the kick off like le Tissier said he was tempted to do.

    Least it only 1 of so many, only bright point.

    Bendtner had obvs taken a bung to miss that open goal at the end as well. Or at least, that's what I would have thought, had he been a reasonable footballer.

    Because it's not as bad a team as made out. Strikers are brilliant but could still do better. Wingers have been largely mediocre with Valencia being awful but Giggs being a revelation back out on the wing lately. Carrick, Cleverley and Anderson have all been good in CM but Scholes should retire and Giggs shouldn't play there again unless it's an emergency and Fletcher? Well... Rafael' solidified the RB spot as his, Evra's found some form again and Evans has continued the good work from last season.

    We don't play well for all the game but there's enough quality there that when we dominate the game we score and it's enough to get the 3 points.
