It's also ridiculous to blame him for the defeats.

He's no Fabianski, but he's no way near as bad as being made out.
You can't blame him directly for the defeats, but he's certainly let a few in he should save and this is where Fabianski makes such a big difference in earning us points. I appreciate when you have to play your 2nd goalkeeper you lose the luxury of your first choice, but he's still one of the worst 2nd choice keepers in the league. Lloris picked up a bad injury, but Gazzaniga looks half decent. I don't think Spurs paid for him. I don't think Roberto was just a cheap signing, it seems like a lazy one also.

I hope he keeps some clean sheets and puts in some good performances obviously, but I've seen little to suggest he will improve that much...

Making Allen McKnight look like Gordon Banks.
Give Alvin's boy the gloves and just hope Fabianski is back asap.
Roberto cannot take all the blame but he simply has to be dropped.

This guys not a premier league keeper.

The team play with zero confidence with this guy between the sticks.

Its embarrassing.

This pre season gamble on Fabianski not getting injured and not adequately replacing Adrian may cost us our premier league status.

Let’s recall Trott he cannot be any worse.We will not win a single game while he plays in goal at kick off we are already 2-0 down no matter the opposition.

Not his fault he is ****.

Sullivan took yet another gamble and it's backfired brilliantly.

I very rarely, if ever, run a player down who turns out in our colours. I always like to think that things will turn around for any of them, but Jesus Christ, this man has to be dropped. He really is one of the worse keepers I've seen play for us and I know our defence isn't exactly covering themselves in glory at the moment, but it can't help knowing he's behind them between the sticks.

why the f**k didn't catch that first cross that he miss-punched out leading to the shot that came back in for the corner for the first goal

went downhill after that
