Don't know him from Adam, but no goals and no assists last season. Gash.

I heard he is known by just his first name. Couldn't be a more apt replacement for Adrian could there? :lol:

On 31 May 2019, it was confirmed that Roberto had signed for West Ham United on a two-year deal for a free transfer. In reaction to the signing Steven Scott famously Claimed that after watching a few youtube videos he is a "very good keeper"

Wikipedia is excellent :lol:

Good luck to him, I hope he does well for the club. He might be our keeper in the cups I guess

Well that's one of the 30+ slots taken from this summer's spend up.

Fortunately, being a 'keeper, it's not such an issue.

Seems like Benfica fans rate him as the worst GK in the history of the game, meanwhile Olympiacos ones as one of the best they ever had. Knowing our luck, it's kinda easy to guess which version we'll end up getting :D

Played for some big clubs, backed up keepers, and has been the subject of some decent transfer fees.

Don’t know the man from Adam.

Welcome!
