How can people say Benda is better than Woodman, when like me, I’ll bet they’ve never seen him play ?
Not commenting on either player's capabilities,but apart from playing for the U23 etc has Benda played first team with us at all ,and has he become so popular here as an improvement purely on reports from Swindon?If so, good luck to him,I hope it is justified,but it does seem a bit of a hopeful leap to me.
Bit static, not a great leap on him so not that impressive with crosses as often looks flat footedOK on his line normally in the De Gea style but not yesterdayTheir first should have gone round for a corner didn't move for the 2nd was probably unsighted but didn't move for the third either as lost it in flightDon't think he has a future beyond Championship level and if I were Benda hearing that we want Woodman for next season too then I'd be looking around for a new clubBenda for me should be next season's keeperI also blame Conor and our MF for giving Lawrence free pots at goal instead of forcing him onto his left - he is a one trick pony after all
was he unsighted? that's normally a sign of a keeper reacting late.
Woodman couldn't do anything about the first goal- in fact I thought he did well to touch it onto the post before Waghorn tapped in the rebound while our defenders were extremely slow to react, but I felt he was poor on the other 2 particularly the 2nd goal where he appeared to just flap at the ball while on his knees !I likened it to a Bafetimbi Gomis goal celebration.
