Too many rumours, not enough action. Maybe this is why we created the rumours thread as it can be ignored if people want to.
Far too quiet for a team that wants to pass go and collect the £200 although I agree there's plenty of time in theory but in regards to planning, we're already playing catch up.
As for Townsend, my initial thoughts still stand in that he deserted a ship that was looking for a paddle and whilst we're still a small ship in a big pond, he would help us steer in the direction we want to, so it's mixed for me.
I quite like Darlow - even though he's far from the finished article yet, I do think he'll go on to be England's number one in a few years time - all the experience will eventually add up - and there isn't that much competition around right now.
In my opinion, it would be a mistake to let him go, on the same scale as it was for Forster. Just because he's not the top 'keeper now, doesn't mean to say he won't be in a couple of years.
I'd move on Selz (was happy he was loaned out, but now think we're best of selling him), and Krul too.
Reina, Darlow, Elliot with Woodman coming through the ranks would be my preferred order.
My problem with Darlow and other keepers we've had recently is their distribution, commanding of the box and ability to think quickly. Those type of qualities are what separates the excellent from the rest.
Unfortunately,ours lie within 'the rest' category.
Id move on all keepers apart from the kids and reboot. I just think they've been badly coached from Woodman's Dad and those before him.
