    Nah , I heard it on Sky Sports news (Soccer Saturday)

    He was in goals for Birmingham last season when they lost 8-0 to B'mouth in one of the 4 games

    Sounds like he's playing well against Newcastle. I'm following text updates on BBC.

    To be fair, he didn't have much to do. One good reflex save from a deflected shot, but I'm not sure it was on target anyway

    Adrian is back from suspension now. Interesting to see who gets the nod at the weekend.

    Sorry, but I have to bring my little fella into this again. He's a good U10 keeper and yesterday he played well, particularly reading and dealing with through balls, sweeper keeper stuff. Then after training today one of the other dads commented on it. I said "well his favourite player is Manuel Neuer". My son said "No, it's Darren Randolph now".

    Randolph has started well at Anfield, very alert and composed. The BT commentator mentioned that he showed his pedigree near the end of Ireland's Euro qualifying campaign when he had a steady nerve and some big performances. I've been impressed with these English commentators Ireland knowledge the past couple of nights actually, the BBC fella mentioned last night that Hendrick is the only player to have played 90 minutes in every Ireland game this season, presumably meaning since September.

    Edit - Joey O'Brien is coming on now and Randy has just made a brilliant save from a Branigan shot destined for the bottom corner.

    He's looking very good in this match and it begs a question for me. He's not put a foot wrong for Ireland and I've not seen enough of him in Scotland and at Birmingham, but what are his flaws resigning him to not being number 1 at a PL side? There must be something I'm missing.

    Cracking performance. Away. Against Liverpool. Well done.

    Himself and Elliot look very capable when they get their chances but, unless the number 1 is injured, they're not first choice in the league. Disappointing.

    On the up-side, the fact that they have impressed when given chances does mean that we shouldn't have to worry about either of them playing for us in the Euros, in spite of them not being first choice at their respective clubs, especially as Elliott is likely to play the rest of the season for Newcastle (you could say the same about Mark Bunn at Villa, after some impressive performances in January). In fact, currently our goalkeeping situation is starting to look quite good. If you look at England's situation, I think only Joe Hart and Jack Butland are playing regularly in the Premier League.

    Both of them are very good, too.

    I think we're OK for keepers.

    I was a bit disappointed in Butland in the penalty shoot-out. He seemed to go too early and invariably picked the wrong side. I think when you see the likes of Lucas stepping up to take a penalty there's no need to pick a side, just follow the ball. For some reason I thought he'd be excellent in a shoot-out scenario which could have worked out well for England some day, for a change.

    Totally agree that it's great to see our keepers come in from the cold and perform so well. Randolph has another replay to look forward to anyway at least and hopefully progression to the next round against Blackburn, when they'll be expected to get through again. Massively jumping the gun I know.

    Excellent again last night, a string of fine saves. His wall let him down badly for the goal. CD might be vindicated yet although the Adrian still holds the jersey for now. The West Ham fans are starting to ask the question though.

    Agreed. I was hoping for a shoot out to see how he is at penalties.

    That would have been interesting alright although I was happier that he's pretty much guaranteed at least another game.

    A bit slow to react for Blackburn's goal today, a fairly soft shot from outside the box into the bottom corner. They won 5-1 though so no major harm done.

    I only saw the end. Loved how he came through bodies to pick a high long throw out if the air.

    If he had a hat on he could have dropped it on that shot. Maybe he is one of those goalkeepers that need to be busy. He probably will be busy with us.
