I'd take Pickford ahead of Gazzaniga, tbf.
Siggurdson is just not good enough. Terrible signing. Thank god we were not stupid enough to resign him. If Redknapp was here he would have. God I love Poch
Just as a matter of interest mate, what exactly do you know about Gazzaniga?
Seems so many people are angry about his signing and I have no idea why.
How often have you watched him?
I cast my mind back to 1964 and we signed a young 18 year old goalie from Watford. He was terrible at first, but grew to become the greatest goalkeeper I ever saw. His name was Pat Jennings.
Let's not be too hard on young Gazzaniga, he's still very young and is learning his trade. Let's face it, he's joined one of the few clubs who'll give him every opportunity to mature and develop his goalkeeping skills, and with our incredible training facilities and expert coaches...who knows what he's going to grow up to?
Some BVB forum stuff, via Google Translate. Tried to keep it to comprehensible ones:
Not at all anti-Gazzaniga and fully aware of his youth and inexperience. Just very impressed (mostly) by Pickford. And Keane, come to think of it.
Am I missing something? He's 25.
For a keeper though, that's like 14
I wouldn't take it as anti-Gazzaniga, just saying that our team is so far superior that even their first choice keeper would only be as good as our third. Also he's 25 so young in goalkeeping terms, but not that young.
FFS, if we lose tomorrow it will certainly be because of The Alli™ having a red lock.
On a serious note, their fans do seem reasonable enough, most of them not taking anything for granted, and knows that they'll have to produce a good performance to get something out of the game.
This Gazzaniga stuff is like some meta-humorous thing right?
Gazzaniga was signed as 3rd choice because he understands what Poch wants in a goalkeeper and thats it. He will probably never play for spurs. Like thats all there is to it. He's not that young and would need to improve an incredible amount to ever really become a top PL player. But thats okay, thats not his job, his job is to cover for the other two goalkeepers, to train with them and to be a figure in the dressing room.
I thought the Pickford Gazzaniga thing worked as a joke, I Pickford is probably better than Vorm as well but the point is that its funny. To contrast Pickford, a highly hyped starting PL player, to Gazzaniga a perpetual reserve goalkeeper who has been loaned out to second division clubs without much success, is funny.
What a life though, 10k (or something) a week to be average at your profession while doing no work (0 games). I've been striving for this my whole career.
Best seat in the house to watch Spurs, too
He says there is sauerkraut in his lederhosen
Do you know a little German ?
FFS how do you embed gifs?
That's 18 in goalkeeper years dude
I know a fat Spaniard, is that any use to you?
As Poch always says. Footballers are paid to train, not to play.
I understand where this guy is coming from. Also I get a sense they think it won't be as easy as the Europa league farce a couple of seasons ago.
one should already confidently go to London point we have significantly more international experience than Tottenham Hotspur. And we'll get at least one point. I even count with a victory. Apart from the experience of Monaco, we have always convinced in the Champions League and have always survived the group stage, except for our first Champions League year under Klopp.
So head up, chest out and off you go.
