“All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. ... Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn't. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.”
Excellent performance. Have not given up on him being number two before the end of the season. And what a punt, for a youngster! Twice as far as Banksie,I reckon. Keep working hard, Jacob, (pronouced Yacob)

It'll be interesting to see what happens on Saturday now as surely Given has got to play and you'd think Butland will play some part as well but would be nice to see a bit more of this lad to see if that wasn't a fluke.
Those who were saying our goalkeeping selection would be weakened by this summer's moves may need to think again. For what is likely to be our third choice keeper, he looked a confident, assured, imposing figure between the sticks. All in all, it was a very impressive debut (if you forget about the penos!).
For me it was the fact that it was his debut and must have been nervous however, stood up well when 1 v 1 in the box , showed great bravery despite being goaded earlier by a rough challenge, his handling was good and yes his penalty saving needs work but you could not ask for more from a young man in his first game in a Stoke strip.
