re: Tim Howard is currently a top 3 GK in the world - Friend of OBUDan
pretty much yes to everything you've said. tough to measure. GK is pretty much like baseball D. there are metrics out there, but their reliability is questionable and needs context. szcz's shot stopping has never been questioned, but his gaffes, aerial prowess and distribution have always been l...

re: Tim Howard is currently a top 3 GK in the world - Friend of OBUDan
false. he's not a top 3 GK in his league. overall, he's had a pretty down year. i think this season (in no particular order), szcz, mannone (despite his huge gaffe v City), Lloris, mignolet, de gea have stood out. and i'd still take cech over him, despite his down year. in the world, courtois,...

Matt Spiro, a Ligue 1 journo, says Wenger met with Kos' agent about an extension yesterday and also inquired about his other client, Serge Aurier (moar serges!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). no word from him on Sagna's contract though. sky italia might have jumped the gun (shocker). the guy says aurier ha...

i think we need a more mobile no. 1 striker, at least with where i want to see this team go. theo helps our issues some, but even with him, having to defend limits some of the space available. we need to get drmic, costa, etc this summer. even Mandzukic would be an upgrade. hard to be a top team wit...

[quote]I wish we could keep him as a late sub/starter against bottom half squads.[/quote] that's my opinion too, because of his flaws. there's no question he's got the best end product on the team. against lesser teams when we have the ball for the vast majority of a match, he's more likely to...

Was concerned about them yesterday, but TV5 and poldi performed well. Poldi's all around game still pisses me off, but he can finish and we need that. By far tv5's best match at LB. maybe it was due to the competition (they generally attacked down their left through jarvis) but still good to see. ...

He did an interview where he said he might leave when his contract is up and finish his career in Spain. Probably what led to that idea. He has two more years though. Eisfeld or Akpom need to come in if we're going to pks. Don't trust sanogo....
