I have just read on the teamtalk and bbc websites, that Simon Brown will start on Sunday ahead of Ben Hamer. I just can't believe this could be true, can somebody please confirm this. :confused: :confused: :confused:

He probably will if he's fit, but I really hope he doesn't :banghead:

Hamer = 10x the keeper Brown is...

Why drop Hamer?

No chance of Brown playing, Butcher knows his stuff Hamer will definately play.

If it's on Teamtalk it's probably just b***ocks. Reckon the BBC is speculating at best.

While I agree that it's far too early to slag off Brown, this is nowhere near the kind of targeting that Brooker (quite justifiably IMHO) got. Have some perspective!

It has to start somewhere. Easy to see him becoming a target imo.

With Brooker, it started with the player himself. I don't see Brown falling into the same trap frankly.

No it didn't. It started with supporters expressing an opinion that he was crap.

As I say, it's not difficult to see the same thing happening.

I may be bombarded for this but surely the main reason that Brooker (deservedly) got both barrels is because he wasn't crap.

It only takes me to start slagging him......lol

Hamer looks a good keeper and has done nowt to be confined to the bench, Brown has wait for his chance.

Brooker was a c*nt but so few saw it until it was too late.;)

If Hamer is going back next week, there's not a great deal of point in playing him above Brown IMO. If on the other hand we can keep him for longer then :bound:

I think it is a bit early to compare Brown to Brooker, maybe by almost a season. Maybe I'm wrong but I dont remember Brooker getting half the abuse he did last season, the season before. I think the whole Brooker situation got worse as time went on and then went into overdrive as last season went on, along with most of the senior players. The only difference I guess was that some players like Kev had shown consistently they did want to play for the team at some stage where as Brooker, even when given another chance this season didnt.

Brown is coming back from an injury and needs to gain match sharpness, this Sunday at Wycombe may not be the day for that. I just think it would be better to stick with what has worked so far and ease Brown in. Having said that, doesnt the loan deal run out Monday?

Even if he does go back next week, with him playing we have a greater chance of gaining the three points.

Brown, from what I've seen (friendlies and JPT), is an average goalie.

Only after he played and we could see he was crap.

Sorry Ed, but isn't this what is happening here. :eek: At least Brooker was considered the dogs conkers for one season. This guy has only played one game ( apart from friendlies ) and already people are slagging him off.

Who's slagging him off?

People are stating that they prefer Hamer which is fair fecks IMO as he has been brilliant so far.

Brown however, has already shown he can be a great shot stopper as well as a liability.

He will indeed be better than most league two 'keepers but doesn't give the people who have posted so far the same confidence as Hamer does.

Not a problem - he's just second best. Atm anyway.
Almost in the way Smith is being kept on the bench.

Brooker was never considered the dogs conkers btw..

.......Brooker was a c*nt .......

Is, was and always will be. :thetruth:

But I'm not bitter.

Brown hasn't played enough to warrant a slagging off yet IMHO and deserves a break. If he had had the chance to establish himself in the team before his injury we'd all have missed him but I wouldn't know him from Adam in the street and certainly don't really know what he's like as a keeper. I'd kind of like to make my own mind up before rushing to judgement. It can't exactly help his cause or make it any easier that his loanee replacement has come in and played quite so well.

Anyway, he can't be anything possibly like as bad as P. Brooker. At least Brown has been seen trying to get in the way of the ball.

Hamer has played very well since coming into the side, he surely has done enough to retain his place.
Brown should just have to await his chance.
It's not a question of criticising Brown - just being fair to Hamer.

It's not a question of being critical about Brown, it's a question of picking the best team to win a tough game!! Anyone who went to Bury & witnessed the best performance by a goalkeeper at this level for god knows how long, knows i'm right.
On the day, Bury should have beaten Brentford, the difference was Hamer. The bigger question, is why didn't Brentford know he was potentially available on lone before we signed up that numpty Masters for a season?
Also, if we're talking about picking the best team, we need a balanced midfield with Simth playing, not a sweeper system with Pettigrew encouraging the opposition onto you. If our tactics don't change our luck will run out, regardless of who is keeping goal.

I'd be amazed if Hamer's not in goal. More to the point, is who will be playing in front of the keeper. With Mackie definitely out and I imagine Starosta very doubtful, it would be useful to know why Heywood was subbed at half-time against Swindon. If he's injured too, the back-four will look very suspect ... presumably O'Connor, Pettigrew, Osborne and Basey?

Hamer shows signs of developing into a top draw keeper.

Brown's track record is that of an adequate journeyman.

We should play hamer as long as we can and I would do my utmost to extend the loan.

I also wonder if in the case of Brown TB is beginning to question his policy of giving players 2 year contracts

Agree

I think some players were signed up for two years far too swiftly and some should not have been offered a contract full stop

No comment on Brown as I have not seen him yet

Have we got Hamer's loan extended? If not, it must be ending pretty soon. I guess if we can't keep him then there's not a lot of point in him playing when Brown needs the games and will be our first choice keeper after Hamer leaves.

Well, put it this way. If Brown plays on Sunday and has a shocker, then TB will have to move heaven and earth to get Hamer's loan extended.... if he hasn't already done so.

I think it's clear enough now who most people would prefer between the sticks. Hamer is the best keeper we've had since Paul Simith IMHO. (Julian, Bankole, Masters, Abbey, Nelson, Brown).

we can still bring in loan deals outside the transfer window... so cant we just let hamer go back and then 'bring him in again' if we cant simply extend his loan deal. with masters out on loan TB MUST be thinking of this, unless he wants seb brown to be the no2
