Clearly haven't learned from Runnarson. Acting like a small club. United telling Henderson he isn't leaving on loan in Jan just in case. Us letting Leno go and signing a fella who has played for Richmond kickers. Sounds like a brand of patches to stop smoking fs. All because Arteta or someone doesn't have the balls to say no you're staying.
He's 27 and still there.Know nothing about this guy but tbf the US have a great track record with goalkeepers.
I'd have thought it would make more sense to bring in an experienced backup who'd count as a homegrown player though.
He had previously played at Galatasary so had some experience outside of America. Also made his US debut very young.Not comparing him to anyone. If you want to compare him to Friedel though he didn't sign for Liverpool till he was 26.

There's plenty of Americans on this forum and haven't seen anyone say that this guy is a PL level goalkeeper.
Selling Leno for 10m to sign this fella for 5m is crazy. Leave it to summer sell Leno for 7m and buy a proper back up or find someone senior who is out of contact. Finding a decent number 2 isn't difficult.
Yeah we can get a homegrown keeper from the championshipThe age thing means very little in a keeper to me, in fact 27 is relatively young.
Side by side 5m for him and 10m for Leno, I agree looks poor but I'm pretty certain his wages, or whoever we sign, will be an absolute fraction of Leno's. That transfer would be all about getting his wages of the books.
As I said though, it would make more sense to me to have someone who can occupy a homegrown spot to essentially sit on the bench.
