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.

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.

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.
