That is just sh*t.

A ) Living very close to Manchester, car crime up here is rife. We read everyday that cars are being stolen and that is within a 3 mile radius of where I live.
B) We were broken into 6 weeks ago attempting to steal my car, fortunately didn’t get away with anything, but the event was and still is very disturbing.

A mixture of Scrotes breaking in to get money to cover their next fix and organised gangs targeting cars to order.

The lengths I have had to go to to make sure the house and cars are secure is ridiculous but necessary in the current day.

Hope others do not have to go through what we went through and his folks are ok and the cars are recovered quickly.

You were lucky that they didn't take anything, but the thought of someone being in your home is horrible.

Horrible thing to happen.
Sums up modern football though that a fella can afford 2 motors like that and plays maybe 3 games a year.
Mind boggling.

Personally, I don't think he's ever let us down, and yes I'm aware that he's only had a handful of games.

:sorted:
Exactly what you want from a number 2 'keeper – completely dependable.

Remember when we had a similar fixture vs Oxford and a young Bonham was the goalkeeper. What an improvement

I had him in front of Bentley for the whole of the latter’s final season, myself. I felt he punched, when he should have caught a cross from their left in the first half, but he doesn’t let you down.

He is a very decent No.2 keeper to have and if Raya isn't ready for whatever reason against Brum I would have no concerns about Daniels stepping in. I think most of us think he should have had a run of games when Bentley was throwing them into his own next for fun in season 2018/19. However he remained professional, never Complained & has never let the side down, have a lot of time for the bloke.

All of the above. Completely dependable, and must be very reassuring for those in front of him. Maybe churlish of me to point out after such a commanding performance, however, that he is not the footballer that Raya is, and this may well count against him in the eyes of the coaches and dofs.

If you looked at what Daniels did yesterday, it was everything you could ask for in a goalkeeper. He stopped shots, saved a penalty, commanded his penalty area, shouted at his defenders, distributed the ball well, and was calm.

There was a powerful shot that came in from the right in the second half. It could have crept in at the near post, but Daniels covered it well with a great save.

To me Raya is a “Benrahma" type keeper, animated, skilful, and great at getting everyone to notice what he does in a very noticeable type of goalkeeping.

Whereas, Daniels is very much a "Norgaard" type player -skilful, dependable, doing the hard work, less glamorous, more serious, but actually doing as much work and contribution, but in a less than always obvious way.

If Daniels became our regular first team keeper, then I would be happy with that!

If we wanted a goalkeeper pure and simple then he is excellent. Problem is that we want more beginning with distribution from the back and a keeper who also acts as a sweeper.

Wonder if there's a price Arsenal are prepared to pay for Raya that makes up for Daniels perceived weaknesses? £7mill plus Balogun?

I thought he did that well yesterday, plus he only had 2 of our normal back 4 playing in front of him, with the experience of Pontus and Henrik missing.

Excellent save today, but he was a little slow to spot the Birmingham goalscorer moving into an unmarked position and adjust his position from goal centre accordingly; he doesn't create enough from his goalmouth distribution, as it is usually rather tame rollouts or short passes.

There was a few occassions when it needed a quick throw out to get us started on a counter attack, and he just held onto the ball.

He is the goal keeper and it is a defenders Job to mark the opposition so I can not agree that he was a fault at all for the goal

He did nothing wrong today and made a good save but as I posted (in the wrong thread) there is no urgency to get the ball going again from him, his only outballs seemed to underarm rollouts or kicking long. We miss Raya's claim, look up, over arm throw/drop kick and counter attack.

Also he is always so deep when we attack unlike Raya who is pushing up to keep the pressure on.

Wasn't the reason we lost the game by any stretch but happy for him to be our number 2 and Raya to continue as number 1.

Dependable goalkeeper but not as quick with his feet as Raya. Unfortunately , we lose that quick movement forward that Raya gives us but one is valued at £10 million compared to Luke who is reliable and obviously happy to be a number 2.

He played fine but we’d probably have had a bit more zip in starting attacks with Raya. If it comes down to having him as our number one he won’t let us down but the outfield players will need to do more work to find openings.

No way should we be going in with him as our No 1 if we are targeting promotion IMO.

Oh I agree we need Raya but if he goes and we don’t buy someone who can immediately replace his quality we could rejig to be fine with Daniels.

That can be taught into him surely?

Taught into him? He is 33 next January surely a little late to change very much.
He's been at the club how long now?

3-4 years.

This is stuff we should've been doing in training.

Why ? What has Luke Daniels done wrong in the 2 games he’s played this season. Maybe the only real difference between the two is Raya does look to move his ball quicker

Pretty baffled by any criticism of him to be honest.

He is an above average championship goalkeeper imho.

Not a criticism on my part, just an observation that he doesn't release the ball as quickly as Raya.

He’s done nothing wrong. I’ve said we could he fine with him but would need to alter our play elsewhere to compensate for him being less good with the ball at his feet than Raya. That adds a dimension to our play which the club has clearly been keen on- I think it broke Bentley trying to adapt to it.
