I definitely think we need to sign a new goalkeeper for next season, I feel like Glover makes at least one mistake each game and it makes me very nervous as a fan, I would love to see someone like Paul Izzo brought in to give Glover proper competition  

We at least need some genuine competition for the position

We've had the competition. What we don't have is a decent modern GK coach and a willingness to give any of the other GKs a go.

But he had decent competition when Biragitti was playing every game on the bench!

 

Yes, and he was more consistent that season

I think that FA/APL also needs, somehow, a secondary competition where reserve GKs and others - such as Pucci, Raphael, Cola  - in A-League clubs can actually get some competitive match football. Is this fulfilled by the NPL? - I don't think so in practice.

18/19 season: Birighitti's signing was announced 11/9/18. He left by mutual termination 30/7/19.
Bouzanis spent the season on loan to PEC Zwolle. The other two GKs were Galekovic and Delianov (S).
Glover was not at the club.

19/20 season: Glover's signing was announced 6/9/19. His competition was Bouzanis who returned from PEC Zwolle, and Joe Gauci. Bouzanis left at end of 19/20 (announced 25/7/20).

20/21 season: Glover's competition was Matt Sutton, Ahmed Taleb (S) and James Nieuwenhuizen (S).

21-22 season: Remains the same as last season.

Needs a spell.

He just looks devoid of all confidence and becomes more and more indecisive each game.

I don't know what he's doing with the goalkeeping coach but it ain't helping!

He was even shaking his own head at his performance tonight

I have to admit, his distribution was absolutely abysmal so the club should bite the bullet and bench him i am sure we would be no worse of with whoever they put in .

It’s something they trained on, he’s supposed to play it long on the wingers head mostly Nabbout. Last night was poorly executed.

Bouzanis wasn't that bad, everyone just had the shits with him cause he was picked over Sorenson. He had his bad moments but he also had some bloody good games

Doesn't help when he's got a defence that week in, week out, gives forwards the space they do. Been a huge problem all season but PK way too busy just screaming at his classroom to notice.

Yeah I agree way too much space every game. I've been trying to pin point it, all our defenders defend walking backswards, we lack real pace at the back and whilst many rate our midfield highly it is just not very good collectively in defending, our DM usually drowns without any support.

There isn't a team in the league who'd think they couldn't score against us this season, no matter how little possession they'd have. It's fukn woeful.

For the first goal,  his positioning was poor,  to be modest. Would the top keeper save the second goal shot? Most likely. But A-league is far from the top leagues standards. Funny enough,  no one ever complains that Florin's strike was well above the our league ability and standard.

He is the best goalkeeper on our team currently (which is not saying a lot) so we just have to back him and pray one of his brain farts doesn't cost us. The way our defending has been this season however, he is going to be called into action more often then we would like

Just has absolutely 0 confidence in himself atm and it tells in his erratic decision making and play.

He's trying to play as a sweeping keeper in general play, but the guy just runs out everytime the ball may be a sniff near him.

Then he's the polar opposite in set pieces, he'll almost never come off his line and even when he does, his judgement is so poor he never gets near the ball anyway.

Dead right. Part of the problem IMO is the GK Coach issue. Jeff Olver comes from a generation where the GK's role was to command the 6-yard box, where GKs could pick up the ball from a back-pass, etc. etc. Old style keeping. The rules concerning back-passes to the keeper were introduced in 1992, after Olver retired, and modified again in 1997. I don't see how he's equipped to improve Tom Glover's performance in the "sweeper-keeper" era.

Shot stopping from outside the box is elementary and the easiest in the keeper job. He does wrong with anything else.  He was good as we avoided those situations. When he comes into Redmayne's age, he will probably be decent.  He's already Olyroos first choice keeper, now with more international experience. The question is whether the club will persist.

I hope someone at CFG HQ is crunching the numbers to work out how many points/money/marketing/brand-exposure/etc. this guy has cost the club. 

Bring back Tommy Sorenson, or a sack of potatoes. Either would do better than Glover.
