URZZZZ Didn't make any howlers as such but there were simply too many "could have done better" moments, good decision to get rid IMO

He most definitely did make a few howlers. That said without his penalty save against QPR last season we could well be in League 1 right now.

From Despair To Where? He wasn't a disaster, just not the answer.

To call him a disaster is a bit OTT.

very average is a better description imho

Yes. The Chris Gunter of goalkeeping.

Thankfuck we haven't had to enjoy hundreds of appearances over years for Mannone as well.

disaster in that a player on high wages and transfer fee let go on a long loan with us no doubt paying a lot of his wages still. When we could have probably picked up someone of equal quality on a free and half the wage. What do we reckon - overall cost of 3.5-4m to us for a desperately average keeper?

He wasn't a disaster, the deal for the club on the other hand was a disaster

IMO that is seriously unfair to Gunts, whatever about Ian's original dig.

Personally, would have Ian as more of the Mark Lawrenson of Hobnob....

Not fair on Gunter. How many caps for Wales has Mannone won?
