2010/2011 Season Review: Goalkeepers

2010/2011 Season Review: Goalkeepers
In an idea shamelessly pinched from Bhappy, we at VitalWatford decided to review each squad member`s 2010/11 campaign at Vicarage Road. The one stipulation was that only players who got on the pitch during the season would be included.

So here goes, we start with the goalkeepers…

1. Scott Loach:

It`s been a real hit-and-miss season for Scott Loach having made as many stunning, last-ditch, clawing saves as he`s made clangers over the course of the season. Unfortunately though it`s the errors that get remembered and replayed in fans minds, especially with goalkeepers. Loach clearly has his weaknesses - decision-making, crosses and communication, but underneath those flaws is a good goalkeeper. The fact of the matter is with no-one challenging him for the number one jersey, Loach is not going to be dislodged any time soon and at 22, his peak is eight to 10 years away - he really needs a rival for the starting berth. 6/10

13. Rene Gilmartin:


Like Loach, Richard Lee`s replacement is only young and having finally gotten a few games under his belt at Walsall last season, Rene Gilmartin has suffered from not playing regularly this season - not that he was ever expected to of course. Four cup games constitutes his season and like Loach, it`s the clanger against Brighton that will be remembered as the most memorable part of his season. Will Gilmartin ever dislodge or seriously challenge Loach? No, but he`s cheap and cheerful backup and in our financial situation that`s all we can hope for.5/10

The weaknesses pointed out in loach are the exact same ones that his coach had during his professional career. Maybe it's time that Alex chamberlain was replaced as his coach! Just a thought

Possibly. I still believe it will come with age though.

Tom you know that I have always rated Loach very highly, without doubt he will come good, I just believe the coaching needs to be looked at.
