He's certainly part of the equation , Leon - as is Adrian , as is the return of the Back 5 .

It would seem that we fell into using Jonathan by accident or the inevitability of Andy Carroll becoming injured once more , his selfless running and closing down of defenders is just one reason why we beat Tottenham - Ayew was equally as impressive in that department - also the deployment of 3 West Ham whenever a Tottenham player got the ball - it's how Barcelona work , they hunt in packs , play as a team while defending and going forward , it's simple but it does require a certain level of fitness .
The whole team were immense on Friday night - from Adrian to Calleri , each played their part magnificently .

I hope he stays too. Same with Randolph. Both are decent but can have dips in form, So long as this is recognised quicker and the other one bought in to freshen it up I think it can work.During the last switch I though Randolph was given too many chances before the trigger was pulled. We need all the money we can spent on other areas of the squad.

The return of Adrian along with Ginger Pele and the Maori Warrior since Everton game has resulted in 3 clean sheets. This is not a coincidence.

Adrian brings more to the table than just his goalkeeping - he is very vocal and knows how to organise those in front of him, he is so much better than Randolph and I am more than happy for him to be our first choice for the foreseeable - Randolph however, isn't even good enough as a back up and he needs replacing.

Has signed a contract extension :scarfer:

Great news, relieved he hasn't thrown his toys out, over being left out for so long

Forgive my ignorance but isn't us activating the extension clause a one sided thing, not so much HIM willingly signing another contract. Whether he wants to stay hear or not has no bearing on that?

It was the right thing to do, in any event.

Slightly concerned about this as well.... no quotes from Adrian about signing for another year (yet)

Could be activating it to ensure we get a fee... either way it's the right decision

Just hope he is staying to play...

Sounds more like the club have taken up the clause to extend his contract which they'd obviously do if they wanted him or not.

100% agree :thup:

Least that's one position sorted for next season. Randolph starts his new job with Uber at the beginning of July, so we need a decent no2 to keep Adrian on his toes.

I can still see Randolph being on his way and a new keeper coming in as the top dog

This has hardly been played up by the club like a new signing...more like a bit of admin done

I like Adrian as a character and he can pull out amazing performances at times but I don't believe he is a good communicator with his backline and I just don't think people trust him

There are lots of good goalkeepers around at the moment - many of them capable of brilliant saves, good with their feet, good on crosses, good communicators/motivators, good team players and so on

But very few of them are 100% perfect, never make mistakes, never flap and all that

So I see Adrian in that way - he does plenty of things really well, but isn't 100% perfect.
But the thing is that anyone we replaced him with wouldn't be perfect anyway.

So - let's keep Adrian, with Randy as his back up and save the huge amount of money a Joe Hart or a Jordan Pickford would cost us to invest in some quality outfield players

That's what we need this summer

Good that the contract has been extended but I can't shake the feeling that a bit of his West Ham fire has gone out - am I the only one? He seems to have been less showman on the pitch (which may be a positive), less instagram or twitter posts related to West Ham but loads of Spain related ones.

Much rather keep Adrian than Randolph and think a Randolph and Ruddy dream team at the end of our summer would be pretty worrying.

It's worrying that he appears to have been given another season as first choice keeper. I've no problem with him as second choice, but we need a better goalie. I'd break the bank for Pickford.

Adrian was good enough when we finished 7th, is better than Robles who finished 7th this season, and was named in the Spain squad earlier this season.

We do not NEED to spend big on a goalkeeper, we have much more pressing issues.

We need a striker or two for sure. But providing Zabaleta is done, goalie is our next weakest position. Adrian was woeful at the beginning of last season and couldn't have been great in training considering how long Randy kept him out the side. It's definitely a position we could quite easily improve on and should be pretty high on our priority list imo

i think (based on pretty much nothing) that he didn't want to sign a new contract, so he's been benched as a result, and his contract extended to get a fee in the summer. we wouldn't have seen him playing again for us had randy not been fuckingawful.

prediction: he'll be off, randy stays, we'll try hart, we'll try pickford, and end up with ruddy.

:raver:


i'd like begovic or vorm as new number one (not sure how feasible they are though) and adrian as back up.

if adrian stays, we should still replace randy with someone better.


and since we're at it, hart is worse than adrian and on four times the money probably, i haven't seen much of pickford but his price will suffer for englishness inflation no doubt.
