    Maybe not Allison because he is a level above the rest of the competition, but i have seen Ederson racking up mistakes plenty of times in the same game. Especially in high stakes games.

    Nature of the beast, Martinez will make his fair share too, wouldn't make him any less of a keeper.

    Multiple mistakes in big games? Give me a few examples.

    Leno for a GK doesn’t seem to show much personality either.

    Tottenham in the CL springs to mind. He wasnt all that great against Liverpool as well, same tournament.

    Can we change the title to The poorly chosen one?

    Emi staying would have further galvanised our spine, and I believe he would have displaced Leno eventually. It was a matter of time.

    That said, you cannot fault him for needing to play and ultimately leaving. Not being first choice when, among other things, wanting to secure yourself as your country's number one makes it a necessary decision to play as much as possible.

    All this said, we are left with a number one who has faults but isnt as bad as he is made out to be. Leno will improve and become the reliable fixture he can be.

    We are sorted in the goalie department, Im confident of that.

    Do not know what to think really, last night was a really bad day at the office and he has and generally will not have them that often. I just feel emi was more suited for playing out from the back nonsense. Feel a bit sorry for leno. I do think leno is a good keeper he just needs to cut out the mistakes such as the parrying of shots.

    Not worried at all. He was so good last season. He's still coming back from injury and he'll be fine.

    Leno is a top keeper unless some of you guys think we should buy "world class" keepers for 80m like Kepa or De Gea :D

    Allison is a top GK. Leno is levels below so is clearly not top.

    Not many have that personality or X factor, but the very best ones do. Even when those kinds of keepers are past their best, they still get by on their personality which influences their decision making, for years. Leno comes across like he’s still trying to prove something or thinks he has it to prove. That’s a bit of a worry.

    I wrongfully bumped it and deleted my post. My bad.

    Emi made a mistake which means all Leno's errors are null and void!

    All I can say is you don't see Leno letting in any goals today.

    We just really need to stop talking about Emi. He’s a Villain now.

    Martinez is a legend in Birmingham. Proud to have my boy in my City.
