2011/12 Match Notes & Ratings

2-1 v Blackpool (n) 19th May 2012
by Gordon Thrower

A couple of times we were screaming for him to come and collect but by and large this was a good game from the ‘keeper. New contract anyone?

3-0 v Cardiff City (h) 7th May 2012
by Gordon Thrower

One of the Norwegian gang who were over for this game is the spitting image of Greeno. We told him off as usual for having a few pints of Guinness before an important match. However, the real Greeno could have sat there with a pint and the papers for much of the game. One good save at the feet of a forward and some useful distribution from throws.

2-0 v Cardiff City (a) 3rd May 2012
by Staff Writer

Barely had a save to make. Made up for a couple of dodgy moments - one flapped-at cross and once poor clearance - by mocking the home support, who had chastised him throughout the game, at the final whistle.

2-1 v Hull City (h) 28th April 2012
by Gordon Thrower

One good save. Sat back and watched the match for about 80 minutes. Might have done a bit better with the goal.

6-0 v Brighton & Hove Albion (h) 14th April 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Fine save in the first half. Probably spent the second half sat on a deckchair reading an improving book or two.

2-4 v Reading (h) 31st March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Might have done a bit better with the 4th but it was offside anyway. A bit of fielding practice aside little else to do.

1-1 v Leeds United (a) 17th March 2012
by James May

Had very little to do throughout the game but dealt with everything when called upon. Made one excellent reaction save from a Connolly header in the second half.

1-1 v Doncaster Rovers (h) 10th March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Little chance with the goal but saved the point with the superb second half save.

1-1 v Doncaster Rovers (h) 10th March 2012
by Daniel Prescott

The only thing that stood between Doncaster and three points.

1-1 v Watford (h) 7th March 2012
by Daniel Prescott

Didn't have an awful lot to do but pick the ball out of his net on one occasion.

2-0 v Cardiff City (a) 4th March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

A spot of uncertainty at the start but it was notable that he was barely called upon to make a save worthy of the name.

0-0 v Crystal Palace (h) 25th February 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Some fine saves in the first half kept us in the game in the first half. It was a measure of how things changed in the second half that he was largely unemployed in the second. Probably edges MOTM on a day where it was difficult to really single anyone out.

4-1 v Blackpool (a) 22nd February 2012
by James May

A spectator for most of the first half and could do nothing about the Kevin Phillips goal. Made misjudgement for red card and in hindsight shouldn’t have committed himself to the challenge.

1-1 v Southampton (h) 14th February 2012
by James May

A brilliant double save and a great fingertip save from Lambert in the first half. Commanding in the air once again, didn’t put a foot wrong.

2-1 v Millwall (h) 4th February 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Although barely tested there were still a few iffy moments dotted throughout the match.

2-1 v Millwall (h) 4th February 2012
by James May

Solid as ever, dealt with everything that came his way. Made one good save from Dunne in the final 15 minutes to keep us ahead.

2-1 v Nottingham Forest (h) 21st January 2012
by James May

Solid as ever. Made crucial save from Tudgay in the second half to keep us ahead.

1-0 v Portsmouth (a) 14th January 2012
by Gordon Thrower

Two important saves in the first half. Fewer tests in the second half. If he’s going at the end of the season SuGo will need to ensure funds are available for a decent replacement.

1-2 v Derby County (a) 31st December 2011
by Gordon Thrower

No chance with the goals. His kicking was a bit erratic though. Kicking to touch for safety reasons was all well and good but he seemed to find the sidelines when he had time to do better

1-0 v Barnsley (h) 17th December 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Not over-tested but the save at the start of the second half was a match winner. Collected crosses well and his awareness and command of the box helped settle an 'unusual' back four combination.

1-2 v Burnley (h) 3rd December 2011
by East Stand Martin

Little to do bar pick the ball out of his net. Twice. His distribution was decent enough.

3-1 v Derby County (h) 26th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

A little casual with one kick in the first half. No chance with the goal and barely tested in the second half.

2-1 v Coventry City (a) 19th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

One fine save, several routine ones. The rest was largely practice.

2-0 v Hull City (a) 5th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Some excellent saves both in the first half and late on preserved a clean sheet and, in the process, rammed those oh so tedious World Cup chants down some throats. MOTM – just.

0-1 v Ipswich Town (h) 27th September 2011
by Gordon Thrower

A couple of good saves in the first half and was beaten by sheer pace for the goal.

1-0 v Peterborough (h) 24th September 2011
by Staff Writer

Little to do on the day but dealt comfortably with anything that was thrown at him.

4-3 v Portsmouth (h) 10th September 2011
by Gordon Thrower

One decent save, no chance with the goals, not really tested otherwise.

4-1 v Nottingham Forest (a) 28th August 2011
by Staff Writer

Had he not made two stunning saves in the first half it could have been a very different game indeed.

2-2 v Leeds United (h) 21st August 2011
by Gordon Thrower

No chance with either of the goals. Made some good saves and looked strong throughout.

4-0 v Watford (a) 16th August 2011
by Brian Evans

Handled well, commanded his area well, great first half save.

1-0 v Doncaster Rovers (a) 13th August 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Not overly tested but equal to the job when called upon – one decent save required and made.

1-0 v Doncaster Rovers (a) 13th August 2011
by East Stand Martin

Little to do throughout but was on hand make the necessary saves when required.

0-1 v Cardiff City (h) 7th August 2011
by Gordon Thrower

A couple of smart saves. Possibly might have done a bit better for the goal maybe.

 

2010/11 Match Notes & Ratings

0-3 v Sunderland (h) 22nd May 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Dealt with the long range stuff comfortably enough. No chance with any of the goals.

1-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 7th May 2011
by Gordon Thrower

No chance with the goal. Made one save from distance in the second half but was largely untroubled.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 23rd April 2011
by Staff Writer

A couple of decent saves. He saw the first goal late and couldn't have done anything about the second. Made a bit of a mess of one shot.

0-3 v Chelsea (a) 23rd April 2011
by Staff Writer

A good game. Not worried under the high ball, and made some good saves. Little could be done for the goals.

1-2 v Aston Villa (h) 16th April 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Some fine saves kept us in the match but his distribution was often worryingly wayward.

0-3 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 9th April 2011
by Staff Writer

Three goals conceded. Recieved little help from his backline. Wayward shooting came to his aid.

2-4 v Manchester United (h) 2nd April 2011

0-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 19th March 2011
by Gordon Thrower

The save from Bale’s free-kick was out of this world. Mind you I’d have held it!

1-2 v Stoke City (a) 13th March 2011
by Staff Writer

A fantastic penalty save; there was little he could do with either goal.

3-0 v Stoke City (h) 5th March 2011
by Gordon Thrower

One iffy punch aside he wasn’t found wanting on the few occasions he was required.

3-1 v Liverpool (h) 27th February 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Unemployed for the first period he weighed in with three fine saves in the second half.

5-1 v Burnley (h) 21st February 2011

3-3 v West Bromwich Albion (a) 12th February 2011
by Staff Writer

Not much chance with goals one and two but you'd have liked to see him being alittle more assertive for the third.

0-1 v Birmingham City (h) 6th February 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Barely tested by the visitors. No chance with the goal.

3-1 v Blackpool (a) 2nd February 2011
by Staff Writer

Slow to react for the goal perhaps but withstood all else thrown at him. Nothing spectacular - for a change - but solid.

3-2 v Nottingham Forest (h) 30th January 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Busier in the first half than the second when he was less troubled. Might have done a tiny bit better for their second perhaps.

Yes we had a silly second in the second half but without his superb save in the first things could have been a lot different.

3-1 v Wigan Athletic (h) 27th November 2010
by Gordon Thrower

Ok he had a good game. The penalty save was decent but it wasn't his most testing of days. So the sponsors' decision to award him MOTM was met with much scratching of heads – not least from our Jem who could scarcely hide the disbelief in his voice when he had to make the announcement.

Looked a bit out of position on a couple of crosses. He'll probably tell you Adam's long range effort was covered – I'm not convinced. Good save from Cathcart at the end though.

1-2 v Newcastle United (h) 23rd October 2010
by Gordon Thrower

No chance with the goals. One good save but his distribution was poor in this one.

1-1 v Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) 16th October 2010
by Staff Writer

Another goal gifted followed by some superb saves and some more rubbish (another couple of weak punches and a hospital pass to Da Costa). Almost amazing!

1-1 v Fulham (h) 2nd October 2010
by Gordon Thrower

Three really good saves – it'd be nice for us if he told Capello where to stick his England place thus keeping him away from injury.

1-0 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 26th September 2010
by East Stand Martin

I think I vaguely recall him coming for one cross in the first half that he didn't look too convinced about. However the four proper saves he pulled off were breathtaking. There were a number of candidates for MOTM this week but given the rubbish that he's had to put up with since the summer, on balance I think I'll give it to our custodian.

1-1 v Stoke City (a) 18th September 2010
by Staff Writer

Looked shaky, was beaten more times than we actually conceded. Not many times tonight when he gave me confidence. Needs to get himself sorted quickly because he is our only realistic number one.

1-3 v Chelsea (h) 11th September 2010
by Gordon Thrower

Culpable for the second but he recovered enough to make two decent second half saves.

0-3 v Manchester United (a) 28th August 2010
by Staff Writer

Two excellent saves. Little chance with the goals as the defence opened up before him.

1-0 v Oxford United (h) 24th August 2010
by Staff Writer No.2

Did not play.

1-3 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 21st August 2010
by Gordon Thrower

Bolton supporters predictably tried to barrack the keeper but there were so few of them he probably didn't hear. One poor clearance – from a poor throw back to him but otherwise sound.

0-3 v Aston Villa (a) 14th August 2010
by Staff Writer

Suffered the expected post-World Cup abuse from the home fans and looked edgy. One attempted punch led to Villa's opening goal, but still made one or two decent stops.

by Gordon Thrower

Given no chance with any of the goals.

3-2 v Wigan Athletic (h) 24th April 2010
by Gordon Thrower

Might have come for the first so-called corner that Spector put away. However, the tip onto the bar in the first half, together with the free-kick save in the second were both vitally important.

1-0 v Sunderland (h) 10th April 2010
by Gordon Thrower

For all the visitors' comments to the effect that they deserved something out of the game, he had but one proper save to make all afternoon – from Henderson's free-kick.

2-2 v Everton (a) 1st April 2010
by Staff Writer

Little chance with either goal and rarely tested otherwise.

0-1 v Stoke City (h) 27th March 2010
by East Stand Martin

Looked in control, came out when he needed to and punched effectively. Much improved. Little chance with the goal.

1-3 v Wolverhampton Wanderers (h) 23rd March 2010
by Rob Chapman

As uninvolved as it’s possible to be when you concede three. Not directly at fault for any of the goals, but did little apart from pick the ball out of the net.

1-3 v Wolverhampton Wanderers (h) 23rd March 2010
by East Stand Martin

Faced four shots, conceded three goals. Not really his fault but he wasn't anywhere near a single one.

Make a couple of decent saves in the first half but looked uncertain for much of the game.

3-0 v Hull City (h) 21st February 2010
by Daniel Prescott

Top save from Boateng. Not a lot to do today but effective when asked upon.

3-0 v Hull City (h) 21st February 2010
by East Stand Martin

Always difficult to judge a ‘keeper when he’s had so little to do. However, during that short spell in the first half when Hull did their spot of threatening he looked confident on crosses and pulled off that marvellous save from Boateng.

2-0 v Birmingham City (h) 10th February 2010
by Gordon Thrower

One good save first half, one rush of blood in the second. Largely untested in between.

1-2 v Burnley (a) 6th February 2010
by Rob Chapman

Looked reassuringly comfortable coming for crosses, but partially at fault for the first, and despite a quality strike looked clueless for the second. Not his finest 90 minutes.

0-0 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 30th January 2010
by Gordon Thrower

A couple of fine saves though his kicking has seen better days.

2-2 v Sunderland (a) 31st October 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Looked a little flat-footed for the second, though earlier saves had kept us in the lead. Better than of late.

2-2 v Arsenal (h) 25th October 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Came for one he shouldn’t have. Should have come for one he didn’t. Result: two goals. A lot better on crosses in the second half and made two fine saves that ended up earning us the point.

A couple of good saves were eclipsed by a couple of howlers. Whilst I can understand a reluctance to go to the Ukraine, South Africa is quite nice in places and it’d be a shame to miss out because of days like these.

1-3 v Manchester City (a) 28th September 2009

Poor for the second goal.

1-3 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 22nd September 2009

His usual, reliable self.

2-3 v Liverpool (h) 19th September 2009

Bossed the box well though some might wonder how Torres’ first got in at the near post.

0-1 v Wigan Athletic (a) 12th September 2009

Some comfy saves in the first half. Unlucky with the goal.

0-0 v Blackburn Rovers (a) 29th August 2009

2008/09 Match Notes & Ratings

2-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 24th May 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Solid – if rarely tested. If Robinson or Carson get in the England team ahead of him questions need to be asked.

0-3 v Liverpool (h) 9th May 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Unlucky with goals two and three. No chance with the first.

1-0 v Stoke City (a) 2nd May 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Baulked and battered at every turn he still managed to claim a hell of a lot and the save at the feet of Fuller was bravery itself.

0-1 v Chelsea (h) 25th April 2009
by Gordon Thrower

One good save. A number of much easier ones. Some culpability with the goal.

2-0 v Sunderland (h) 4th April 2009
by Gordon Thrower

A few good saves, a couple of wobbles some good distribution – including that which set up our first.

1-1 v Blackburn Rovers (a) 21st March 2009
by Gordon Thrower

No chance with the goal. Some good saves in the first half but for all Allardyce’s bluster it was noticeable that the defence’s hard work gave him few saves to make in the second half.

0-0 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 16th March 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Man of the match almost by default. Fine first half save. Did ok second half despite spending much of it dizzier than a vertigo-sufferer in a skyscraper.

0-0 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 16th March 2009
by John Simkin

Good save from Morrison and as usual commandeered his area with authority.

1-0 v Manchester City (h) 21st February 2009

Very little to do but an excellent save from Bullard in the 5th minute.

Missed one punch and made a reasonable save from Gary Liddle.

3-1 v Fulham (h) 18th January 2009
by John Simkin

Had little to do but some would argue that no goalkeeper should be beaten from that distance.

2-2 v Newcastle United (a) 10th January 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Comfortable enough though I thought he might have done a bit better for their first.

3-0 v Barnsley (h) 3rd January 2009
by Gordon Thrower

Dealt with what Barnsley had to provide fairly comfortably. Distribution wasn’t quite right once or twice and he probably owes Faubert a pint over the latter’s caution.

2-1 v Stoke City (h) 28th December 2008
by East Stand Martin

A spectator for most of the match – was probably as cold as I was. Did what he had to do without fuss.

Virtually unemployed all game. Not at fault for the goals.

Virtually unemployed all game. Not at fault for the goals.

1-1 v Middlesbrough (a) 1st November 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Made some good saves – let down by the collapse of the wall for the goal.

1-3 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 5th October 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Two goals were his I’m afraid.

2-1 v Fulham (a) 28th September 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Only one real save to make – turned a shot round the post under pressure from Paintsil. Otherwise came and dealt with a few crosses and I suppose we now have to slag him off when he doesn’t save a spot kick!

3-1 v Newcastle United (h) 20th September 2008
by Alex Shilling

Didn't really have much to do, produced good saves from N'Zogbia and Geremi.

3-1 v Newcastle United (h) 20th September 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Barely tested, made two comfortable saves just after they scored but they weren’t the most testing of shots.

2-3 v West Bromwich Albion (a) 13th September 2008
by East Stand Martin

A couple of good saves but flapped at a cross or two. T'was never a penalty ...

4-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 30th August 2008
by East Stand Martin

On hand with two vital second half saves that preserved United's slender lead.

4-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 30th August 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Excellent – and that’s without even taking the penalty into account. On past form he can look forward to a week off thanks to Cappello’s strange insistence on having crap ‘keepers. Oh well England’s loss….

4-1 v Macclesfield Town (h) 27th August 2008
by Graeme Howlett

Nothing much to do. Distribution a little better than normal.

0-3 v Manchester City (a) 24th August 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Solid enough and – one save in the first half apart – not really tested. The second goal found him on walkabout however.

0-3 v Manchester City (a) 24th August 2008
by Alex Shilling

Made one outstanding save at the end of the first half from Johnson. No chance with the goals.

2-1 v Wigan Athletic (h) 16th August 2008
by Nick Bull

Rarely bothered – unlike the back of the stand – but pulled off a fine save when required.

2-1 v Wigan Athletic (h) 16th August 2008
by Alex Shilling

Had a good game. One fantastic save midway through the second half saved the points. Dealt with virtually everything Wigan could throw at him.

2-3 v MLS AllStars (n) 25th July 2008
by Graeme Howlett

Some good saves, little chance with any of the goals.

 

2007/08 Match Notes & Ratings

2-2 v Aston Villa (h) 10th May 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Maybe slightly in the wrong position for the first goal but made some fine stops later on.

1-4 v Manchester United (a) 3rd May 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Strange one really. They had five or so real shots (if you count Ronaldo’s deflection that Sky are probably claiming as genius). No chance with any of them and barely a save to make otherwise.

1-4 v Manchester United (a) 3rd May 2008
by Alex Shilling

Did all he could to prevent goals. None of the strikes his fault, let down by defence on copious occasions.

2-2 v Newcastle United (h) 26th April 2008
by Alex Shilling

Was there when he had to be. One very good save from Martins with about 15 minutes to go. Didn't really have a chance with either goal.

2-2 v Newcastle United (h) 26th April 2008
by Gordon Thrower

No chance with either of the goals and not tested for much of the match. Fine save at the end from Martins.

2-1 v Derby County (h) 19th April 2008
by Gordon Thrower

For long periods was bothered by little more than back-passes. However, he made two good saves when required.

0-1 v Portsmouth (h) 8th April 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Barely tested and beaten by what may have been the only shot on target in the whole match.

1-2 v Sunderland (a) 29th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

A fine game. Commanding in the air and safe on the ground. Some dodgy kicks though.

1-1 v Everton (a) 22nd March 2008
by Graeme Howlett

An excellent performance, two superb saves that kept the Hammers in the game.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 17th March 2008
by Alex Shilling

Had a good game. One crucial stop from McCarthy five minutes from the end all but sealed the win.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 17th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

An uncertain start but more than redeemed himself with a fine save at the end.

0-4 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 10th March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Left woefully exposed for the goals. Kicking left a lot to be desired.

0-4 v Chelsea (h) 1st March 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Not at fault for the goals – let down by those in front of him.

1-0 v Fulham (a) 23rd February 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Coped comfortably with what little came his way. One fine save and a few easy ones.

1-1 v Birmingham City (h) 9th February 2008
by East Stand Martin

Nothing to do really. Surprisingly let in a penalty.

1-0 v Wigan Athletic (a) 2nd February 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Few saves to actually make though his positioning was a bit suspect for the goal. There again he’d have been perfectly placed if Kilbane had got his header right!

1-0 v Liverpool (h) 30th January 2008
by East Stand Martin

Barely troubled all night – most dangerous opponent was the pitch that caused an early back pass to bobble.

0-1 v Manchester City (a) 16th January 2008
by Jacob Steinberg

He could do little about the goal as his defence had let him down on that one vital occassion.

2-1 v Fulham (h) 12th January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Probably to blame for the goal and his kicking wasn’t too impressive today.

0-0 v Manchester City (h) 5th January 2008
by Jacob Steinberg

He made two excellent saves from Ireland and was generally sound plucking crosses out of the air.

0-0 v Manchester City (h) 5th January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

One fine save and did the rest of his job well. Capello please note.

0-2 v Arsenal (a) 1st January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

Strangely he was barely tested, though he was a bit too eager to come off his line for the flukey second.

2-1 v Manchester United (h) 29th December 2007
by East Stand Martin

No chance with the goal but not really bothered otherwise. Will probably claim to have sent Ronaldo the wrong way for the penalty kick!

2-1 v Manchester United (h) 29th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

It's hard to think of too much he faced apart from Ronaldo's goal and penalty. Incidentally he has faced four of those this season alone, and has conceded none.

1-1 v Reading (h) 26th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

He made a couple of decent stops early on, but was perhaps guilty of a bit of indecision with defenders.

0-2 v Everton (h) 15th December 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

He had little to do for most of the game, but still found himself beaten twice as those in front of him floundered.

0-2 v Everton (h) 15th December 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Juggled one in the first half but left exposed for both goals.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 1st December 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Not really tested by the multi-zillion quid opposition. No chance with the goal. Which was offside.

1-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 24th November 2007
by Gordon Thrower

A rare off-day. At fault for the goal. Uncertain handling. A shame McClaren has gone because those seem to have been his criteria for selection in recent years.

5-0 v Derby County (a) 10th November 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Didn’t put a foot wrong mainly due to the fact that, easy crosses apart, he had little to do. Probably had time to start a McClaren-out petition - and sign the first 10,000 signatures himself.

1-1 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 4th November 2007
by Graeme Howlett

Possibly his worst performance of the season given the high standard he has set thus far.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by Alex Shilling

Dealt with most things comfortably apart from one occasion in the first half where he completely missed a cross. Couldn't do anything about the goal.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by East Stand Martin

A decent performance from England's real number one.

0-1 v Arsenal (h) 28th September 2007
by Josh Tappin

Played well, made some important saves.

3-0 v Middlesbrough (h) 15th September 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Punched one that I thought he ought to have held in the second half but kept us in front with some important saves. England’s loss is our gain.

3-0 v Reading (a) 1st September 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

A comfortable game mostly for Green. He relieved pressure during aerial onslaughts and made up for his foul by saving Doyle’s penalty.

3-0 v Reading (a) 1st September 2007
by East Stand Martin

Generally solid though a knock seemed to restrict him a bit in the second half. Fine penalty save – if only he hadn’t given it away to start off with!

A quiet day for Green, he did well to halt Aghahowa twice- but he could do nothing about the very good goal.

1-0 v Birmingham City (a) 18th August 2007

Robinson, James and Carson are in the England squad. No, really.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (a) 17th March 2007

Coped fairly well with everything that was thrown at him - and did enough to put off Pedersen when a goal looked on the cards.

Some magnificant saves. But another four conceded meaning in three games he has let in 15...

0-4 v Charlton Athletic (a) 24th February 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Not his fault – had no cover when he needed it most.

0-1 v Watford (h) 10th February 2007
by Nick Bull

He started a game again. Unlucky with the penalty; just the way the season is going for him. I just hope he doesn’t listen to songs about not being fit to wear the shirt.

by Gordon Thrower

When the ball is hung up in the air you always get the impression he’s going to win it. He did. McLaren won’t drop Robinson but maybe he ought to think about it.

1-0 v Manchester United (h) 17th December 2006

The save from Ronaldo was breathtaking but there was a lot of unspectacular stuff going on as well. Solid.

0-2 v Everton (a) 3rd December 2006

1-0 v Sheffield United (h) 25th November 2006

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Nick Bull

Perhaps at fault with the goal, Green dealt with everything else thrown his way – which was surprisingly little.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Rarely can an away ‘keeper have been tested as little at Stamford Bridge – though there was a wee question mark over his positioning for the goal.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

Surprisingly rarely called into action although he won't be happy with his positioning for the free-kick.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

Although he didn't have much to do, I was a little sceptical about his effort to save the goal. A perfectly positioned free kick, but was our keeper in the right place?

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

Rock solid again and made the right decisions. Another excellent performance which should guarantee his first team place for the forseeable future.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Commanding and safe. Some fine saves when the chips were down. Better get used to that bench Roy.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 29th October 2006
by East Stand Martin

One fantastic point-blank save when the score was still 1-0 and another commanding performance that deserved a clean sheet. If his defenders hadn't fallen asleep as Bentley strolled in unattended in the final minute it would have been.

1-2 v Chesterfield (a) 24th October 2006
by Nick Bull

Another strong performance, another defeat to accompany it. Faultless for the goals, his saves kept West Ham in the game.

1-2 v Chesterfield (a) 24th October 2006
by East Stand Martin

Looked assured throughout, safe hands and good distribution. The save that (sadly) led to Chesterfield's first goal was absolutely top-notch. Roy, keep that bench warm.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 22nd October 2006
by Nick Bull

Could do nothing about the goal. Solid debut, producing one good save from everyone’s favourite, Jermaine Defoe. West Ham’s number one from here in.

0-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 22nd October 2006

A good confident start with a couple of fine saves. I feel happier with him already.
