Don’t see the fuss re the second save. I would expect anyone to make it?
The one before that where their player had cut in and it was going in the bottom left however was a really good save.
I know a keeper who wouldn't have saved it.
And that’s where I think people are judging from tbh. But the one before I thought was class and he did something Butland definitely wouldn’t in the first half. We had just had a corner and they countered immediately, there was absolutely no one on the right for us and they were in and he was there quick as a flash on the 18 yard box and stopped what should have been an almost certain goal.
BUT he had a real chance to score a goal when their keeper came up for a corner and it went straight into Davies hands. I was screaming for him to have a long punt at goal. That would have been hilarious if he had taken a pop. He was way too professional there and held onto the ball.
Excellent again today. Pulled off a couple of decent saves, the one at the end in particular was excellent goalkeeping to anticipate the deflection. Inspires confidence, commands his 6 yard box, vocal with his defenders, not afraid to come off his line to mop up or to pressure strikers, excellent distribution too and certainly not a bad shot stopper to boot! Think he should have been in real contention for the Welsh team anyway considering his form and the fact that Hennessey barely plays between internationals nowadays.
Well done to Davies and Powell. That team illustrates one of the problems with all teams of the week. The best 10 outfield players get squeezed into a formation which is often very different to the formation each player actually played in. I don't know how you get round it but only the keeper is actually guaranteed to make the TOTW in the position he actually played that week.
