Areola is shit btw.

Yet has better statistics than Patricio this season. Interesting.
I think I am retiring from this discussion now with the hope Rui improves and it becomes moot.

And yet his parent club keep loaning him out and playing a 34 year old. Strange one that.

He isn't very good.

So we get rid of Rui (will get next to nothing for him due to his age and contract situation), Areola costs what, £15m, and we've gained what exactly? Meanwhile £15m has disappeared out of our transfer budget when we need a centre half, a central midfielder, a winger and possibly a #10 and a striker, plus we need to pay for RAN and Vitinha if we want to keep them.

I don't think this sounds like a very good idea.

We do need to look at GK options, maybe someone has a GK we could loan for a season

while I'm not going to defend Rui's performance this season (I agree that he's underwhelmed), it's bonkers that he could be a primary target to replace. a new gk needs to be in the picture at some point regardless simply because of his age, but his upgrade is about the last priority for summer 2021. argument for fullback being the only lower priority, assuming everyone comes back OK from injury and we sign RAN.

I think we definitely need to look to have an up and coming keeper on the bench - don’t know enough to say whether that is Sondegaard or Sarkij though. Ruddy can stay as our Carson.

We don't need to replace Patricio, we just need him to start performing to his capabilities, not underperforming. Same can be said of a few players, to be honest. Though I'm not convinced Donk is underperforming, I just think he's a bit rubbish.

Is it Joe Young that's always on the training videos

Bloody good job he hasn't been called up for a dozen or so caps with the no. 1 ranked team in the world eh ? He is underperforming as is a lot of plyers this season, but I'm not going to change your mind am I ?

Caps is not always a sign of quality - there’s no hiding Donk has been pretty dreadful this season. Let’s hope he can rediscover his form next season.

Unless Ruddy wants to sit on the bench for one of his last few playing years then can see him going back into the Championship where he will cope well.

Depends if he wants to play or not - if he does we will need cover as don't think Sondergard or Sarkic are anywhere near ready yet

There are a few people on here who might change my mind. I've read the absolute dirth of quality in every single one of your posts and know for a fact you're not one of them.

Quite right, shouting never gets you anywhere.

😂😂😂😂 I remember another poster going there without much luck!
Twas a joke, I think Johnny knows 🤣

We aren't going to upgrade on Rui without a huge outlay, and I'd rather that money is spent in different areas this summer. We have much more pressing concerns than the goalkeeping position.

And bearing in mind before the keeper gets to save it there are 10 others that the oppostion need to get through.
