No different to Adrian really from the little I've seen from him so far. But on cheaper wages.

Distribution average at best, but decent shot stopper. Should've absolutely saved that first goal though. And as bad as we were yesterday, IF he didn't let that first goal in, who's to say Everton wouldn't of got more and more nervous the longer they went without scoring? But that's hindsight. And you could also equally argue it wouldn't of mattered as we would of still conceded eventually anyway. Fabianski in goal, or not.

Maybe he will come good for us like Gareth Bale did for spurs.

Dodgy keeper. You don't get anywhere with a dodgy keeper, reserve or not. And the signing of David Martin will mystify me forever.

Will assume you’ve seen about 10 minutes of him then

The fella wouldn’t be back up for the mickeys and they wouldn’t have a 100% record if he was

Well for a starters if he was playing for Liverpool he'd be facing far less shots than he would for our shambles of a team.

Martin was signed so Nathan Trott can go out on loan to gain first team experience in the lower leagues. The free transfer was a good piece of business. Roberts’s (ie the #2 role) is undoubtably questionable.

"worst goalkeeping performance for west ham since Joe Hart" - heard on the train home, disagreed by none.

Must be time for Martin now.

Our worst ever keeper?

Poor positioning and can’t catch. Oh and cheap

Oh how I wanted him to prove us all wrong.

Such a slow and cumbersome goalkeeper. Made a few decent stops (though more terrible finishing than anything) but only after he made a woeful mistake coming out for that cross.

The free kick was a decent strike but should have been a routine save for any competent keeper. Like last week, slow to get down to his fat post.

We miss Fabianski (our best player) dearly, but having this clown to replace him between the sticks is the greater issue.

He is pony. No doubts
However, he isn't helped by the shower in front of him

He should never have come for the 2nd goal but where was the defence? Free header

This was the heading on his CV. Sullivan saw the last bit and thought "Perfect"

Pulled off a few good saves....but was in no mans land for their 2nd and shouldn't be beaten at his near post 30 yards out for their 3rd.

All because our owners wanted to save a few quid on wages and believe 34 year old keepers never get injured.

I cannot believe a decent scout cannot find a better goalkeeper than him in championship, league 1 or 2 . However he was free and probably on a third of aidrians wage. I cannot think of a worse goalkeeper currently plying his trade in premier league. At best he is a good goal keeper for five a side matches as he blocks one on ones but awful positioning no presence from crosses and is slower getting down than the titanic

Was to blame for 2 of our goals today

Simply not good enough for this level

Not his fault, whoever signed him

He is what he is. The result of another cash grab by Sullivan. Wouldn't offer Adrian the same terms and wouldn't fund a decent replacement.

Can we really blame the owners, this seems a Huslios signing, out and out.

If he had turned out to be any good we would’ve had all the old ‘we worked tirelessly to bring him in, he’s someone we were interested in for a while blah blah...’

I happily see them blamed for anything.
