    He needs a run of games in a first team environment. Whether he'll get that chance at Bournemouth now is questionable.

    If they decide he's not going to be their first choice pick for the season he will need to get out on loan though, that might even be the best thing that could happen to him, he could develop under less pressure down the divisions. The danger is that he ends up benchwarming for the season, which would be useless for his development.

    True but his team mates aren't our concern.

    Haven't seen the full highlights but wasn't he weak on the other goal too ? And you could argue that his team mates should be able to trust him from that distance on most shots and are doing ok if they are restricting opponents to testing him from there.

    Yes, Bradley Johnson has been known the score the odd screamer but you wouldn't even fear Bobby Charlton shooting from there.

    Ya make sure he has something else to be worrying about rather than giving him Free Reign to have a shot at his leisure !

    Anyway what does not kill a Goalkeeper makes him stronger ~ ~ hopefully.

    Sorry but that's 100% on Travers for me. From there as a defender you're probably happy enough to see the guy shooting because it's such a low percentage play, unless it's an absolute screamer or the keeper has a howler they're never going to score.

    Begovic started Bournemouth's League Cup win over Palace last night, keeping a clean sheet in normal time before conceding ten in the shoot-out, missing a spot kick himself but eventually winning the tie with a save from Milivojevic.

    Out of the team already in the 2 league game of the season as Begovic starts.

    Not a good sign.

    Begovic with a poor game according to their fans forum. Position seems up in the air, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they draft in another keeper. Of only Travers could get a run of games and get his confidence up.

    I suspect the rookie manager won’t be gambling on Travers unfortunately, and will take a 7 iron off the tee with an experienced keeper. Hope I’m wrong

    Is he good enough though? Every time he gets a chance he seems to make a mistake

    He seems to have all the attributes to me to be a very good keeper. He just needs a run of games and gain experience. Had some really low standard non league experience, but that’s not enough. Ramsdale spent time at Chesterfield where he made a number of appalling mistakes, but learned from them and gained confidence, away from the spotlight of his own fans. Travers needed to get out to league one or two last year and make some mistakes rather than staying as 3rd choice keeper. Now, he’s in a tricky position. Needs games

    He does. But so did Colin Doyle. Doyle had a decent enough career but was let down by being error prone. I hope for better from Travers.

    Doyle was a bit sluggish and his distribution wasn’t the best. I know Doyle very well, Travers has better attributes IMO, needs experience and iron out the mistakes. Hopefully he gets a chance to do it this season

    Agree solid showing. My heart was in my mouth after collision with young Delap. Hopefully manager will back him for a few games.

    Must be in with a shout of starting Bournemouth's next league game - especially given Bogovic's less than stellar performance against Middlesbrough.

    Travers linked with a loan move to Swindon Town today.

    Second bottom of League 1 with the second worst goals against record (Only Kieran O'Hara's Burton have a worse concession record) so he'd get plenty of practice anyway. Bazunu down in that part of the table also with Rochdale.

    Swindon seem to have a young keeper on loan from Man United in goal at the moment.

    He'd be kept warm during these cold, dark winter months, anyway. And a spell on loan at Swindon didn't do Shay Given any harm early in his career.

    Doubt Bournemouth would let him go, though.

    Swindon's keeper for the first half of the season has been recalled by Man United. Reports are that Travers is their number one target as a replacement and that it could be announced today or tomorrow.
