It was never just one mistake with Fed though was it. It was regular errors. He made loads of camera saves, some of which actually were as spectacular as they looked, though many were routine made to look hard.

But he was very suspect at his near post, getting down to his corners and claiming crosses. And he was a no necked Aussie chubster. Who has done precisely sod all since leaving.

Ben Hamer has signed for Huddesfield on a 3 year contract, so we can cross him off as a possible replacement for Mannone should he leave.

Think that's a little harsh tbh. Taking away the Arsenal game (remember the west brom cup game where he basically did the same when Gylfi scored the worldy) he didn't make half as many mistakes you claim. I'd agree that he had a knack for the camera save and sure would flap a bit at crosses but overall in recent years he was a good keeper and imho more reliable than Mannone has been and Al-Habsi year 1.

Depends who you talk to, and when. Was told this past season we should be at least Top 10 each season, so there ya go.

In other news, former keeper Alex McCarthy kept Soton up, is attracting interest from Spurs and Liverpool, and almost made the plane to Russia...

Would be happy to have Feds back. A very decent keeper at this level

He wasn't awful or anything. And he did have very good periods. He just wasn't ever as good as he, or many others thought he was.

I can still remember hum conceding six against Posh in the cup. At least two of them you could see coming a mile away, nothing too tricky, just got to get down to his corner and bang.. goal.

One of those kerpers who had to save shots spectaculalrly to make up for poor positionng.

It's a mystery to those who never gave McDermott the credit he deserved, not to mention those who think Federici made only one mistake in a Reading shirt.

Shame Southampton (re)discovered McCarthy this season. Might have been a worthwhile shout there otherwise. Instead he's now being tipped for a move to sit on the bench at Spurs.

He's eligible for Ireland who are in dire need of a new keeper. I hope that call up for England never comes.

Won’t go to Liverpool, Klopp is looking at Allison and Oblak but will I bet will end up keeping faith with Karius. Shame really as they are the one top club crying out for a decent keeper and both Butland and McCarthy are, IMO, a considerable step up from Karius and Mignolet (and either would be a lot cheaper than Allison and Oblak) plus it would do England wonders to have one of their keepers playing for a top 6 club again.

McCarthy is a step up on Karius?! :lol: He’s an extremely average keeper, I would be shocked if he’s playing first team football in the prem midway through next season. Happy to bet a fiver with anyone on that...

McCarthy isn't even in the same league as Butland. Considerably below Karius and Mignolet as well.

Just realised the literal irony in my first sentence, but the inference holds true as well. McCarthy as good as he was for us and is to a degree, is not a top keeper and never will be.

He might get better.. Friedel did.

Was really surprised to read that McCarthy is 28 now. How time flies.

Maybe Fraser Forster fancies some time in the Championship?

I met Ray Clemence at the 2012 FA cup semi final the day after we'd Southampton (A) to look like we're defo going up. Chatted to the legend about various things including his work as England's goalkeeping coach. I told him he should be looking at Alex and he said "not just yet, but in the next 4 years" Sadly for Alex he was a at least 2 years out, maybe soon though. TBF Ray also said that Harry Redknapp was nailed on for the then vacant England manager's job, which went to Woy Hodgson
