I've read that and its hard to argue against it. Didnt realise Alvin's son has over 300 League appearances under his belt, that and he should be better able to deal with Burnley's inevitable aerial bombardment convinces me we should hand him the gloves tomorrow
What I took from YorksHammers, 'Roberto highlights reel' was that yes, he can stop shots but they do have a tendency to come straight back out. More often that not, he doesn't seem to save & then hold on to the ball. So, +1 for stopping the shot but -1 for then not keeping it safe.
Martin does have over 300 league appearances (& is not young & green as grass as Bywater was, all those years ago) but that can present a question. Why hasn't a 'big club' (ahem, present club excepted) picked him up by now? I get the feeling that he was bought, to only play if both Fab & Rob were injured.
I don't mind which of the 2 are in goal for us tomorrow but my only fear if it's Martin, is that it could kill whatever confidence Roberto has still got remaining. If Martin then has a 'mare (bearing in mind our sometimes dodgy defence that would be in front of him), it could ruin him as well. At a stroke, both back up keepers, done for confidence.
