A good keeper with a crappy team in front of him can often look pretty poor of course.
True enough, but I thought Raya looked a much better option than either Eastwood or Steele when they were vying for the 1st team jersey in the same team.

Re: Portsmouth v Blackburn Rovers, Tue 13/2 2018, KO 19:45

I think Raya has done a good job at this level and greatly contributed to the confidence of those on front of him. I’d say he’s the best keeper we’ve had since Robinson, and possibly even better than him towards the end of his time at our club. Obviously he’s nowhere near Friedel’s or Flower’s stand...

No thanks, just pleased we pulled it back for a point and Wigan and Shrewsbury both lost.

Re: Blackburn v Oldham Athletic, Sat 10 Feb, 2018

Unless Stillgrowling is right and it's a back four of Nyambe---Downing---Williams----Bell? With that line-up, I'd be tempted to experiment with a back three and two wingbacks. -----------------Raya--------------------- -----Downing--Mulgrew--Williams----- Nyambe--------Smallwood----------Bell ------...

Re: Blackburn v Oldham Athletic, Sat 10 Feb, 2018

Good question. I’d stick with Downing and Mulgrew at centreback because they’ve proven they have an excellent partnership. Then it’d be a toss-up between Bell and Williams, but I’d be inclined to drop Bell to the bench and treat it as a position that’s Williams’ to lose. *edit - just seen this from ...

If Mulgrew is fit he has to start in defence. Otherwise Smallwood and Bennett would be my first choice for central midfield.
