What a waste of time that has been. So much in the hands of chance. He needed a run of games and to end up at a club where the other keeper is clearly worse / ill / injured or whatever. Sure the folks at the top believed he would get game time but he hasn't. Half a season wasted which at his age is a big big loss. It seems increasingly apparent that he is surplus to requirements at BCS and he really needed to be in a shop window to prove he can become a senior FL keeper somewhere. What a shame...Been recalled from his loan
I agree to an extent but they aren't going to play him unless they think he's better than the other options and they obviously don't which is a concern at this stage in his career.Must be very undermining for him, pointless loan where he plays only in the cup. Surely Burton would assure us he would get League game time? Would be better for him to be sent to a League 2 team and get a full 90 every week and get his confidence up, or a League 1 team if they can promise him time between the sticks
He didn’t play a single game outside the Papa John’s Trophy. He joined them in July and spent their first 6 league games on the bench before he even played a cup game.Let’s not get too up ourselves. He went there because Burton had an ex-Brentford goalkeeping coach.
No one gets a guarantee of game time. He has to perform and from what I have heard EB didn’t.
You can’t blame Burton for not playing him when they have someone who’s patently better.
I would think he would be one of the better, if not the best keeper in L2 and a decent keeper in L1. He had a few very good games with Donny last season, especially in that FA Cup where he saved 2 penalties. I would have thought there would be 1 or 2 in League 1 that would want him, but whether he performs or not is a different matter, his confidence must be shot, feel sorry for the guy reallyI agree to an extent but they aren't going to play him unless they think he's better than the other options and they obviously don't which is a concern at this stage in his career.
He got overtaken for a while by Louis Jones at Donny, only for a few games as I think they wanted to get Jones minutes, he is a very good keeper and I believe is seen as a very big prospect at Donny, but yes he wasn't first choice all seasonDidn't he also get overtaken by both the Boreham Wood and Doncaster keepers during his loans there as well?
Have not seen enough of his game to comment on strengths/weaknesses but clearly needs minutes
I agree, think he has it in him to go further than he has, not sure if he will ever become good enough to challenge for our #1 but I think he still has a good potential
