Needs an op on his ankle 😬.
Loan keeper needed.
Cooper should just relax on that front - if he knows anything at all about the club's recent history, it'll be that we're never far away from signing another keeper...
Wonder if the signing will be another loan or a permanent signing. Just thinking about how many loans you can have in the match day squad?
Josh Gould still under contract to us until the end of next season. Currently on loan to Barry.
I believe he sat on the bench at the end of last season when Woodman was injured
Can he be recalled ? And is he good enough to cover ?
Won't be a problem getting a goalkeeper in imo. Don't get the chance to work with the English goalkeeping coach very often. Would imagine that would be a big deal for any player.
Sure I heard he'd already been sent back, ages ago. No, he's not good enough.
Gould is still on Barry's squad list on their official site.
I'd be surprised he's that bad too, if he was given a contract extension until 2022. I cant see how they would have extended without running it past Marge first, for his opinion.
But has he returned because the Welsh Govt cancelled the league? Dont follow the Welsh Leagues, so not sure what the score is on Barry's professional status.
He played in Barry’s last game until the suspension of the league.
They are higher mid table and David Cotterill also plays for them
I will take on board Jasper T’s greater knowledge of U21 and youth but how did he get such a long contract. Huw Jenkins had long gone by that stage?
Gould didn't play football until he was 15/16 he was a rugby boy, maybe some hopes there was untapped potential as a late-bloomer. Webb's much the better and more experienced goalkeeper having played senior football at Merthyr before joining us. Webb's Wales u19s understudy played for Norwich again yesterday. 7 shots on target but kept a clean sheet, fair play to the lad.
We don't have great numbers for goalkeepers in the development squads, and the options in the u18s aren't great (the best one is unfortunately too small to realistically make the grade at senior level). More promise in the younger groups but will need to be patient, hence squad-fillers like Gould and Jamie Searle.
Gould recalled. So he must be in the equation or will we still take a short term recruit
Gould not good enough to be on the bench for a prolonged time and I suspect that its more about finance.
Going back out on loan as Welsh league is suspended indefinitely.
Huw has only been gone for a couple of years and we already have a goal keeping crisis.
Are you suggesting we sign Big Nose on a short term deal, @Jackareme ? 😉
Hi Jackareme ,
Custard Cream or Digestive ?
Digestive all day long @Malc - dunking a custard cream makes me feel queasy!
Good choice , yep don't dunk Custard creams .
