Is a good shot stopper but we are spoilt by the way Courtois handles the box. 

It was really noticeable today. Caballero did made some vital saves, though

Reminds me of Almunia a little bit, which is okay for a number 2.

He's certainly a good option to have & a better PK saver than Thibo

He saved 1 penalty and people are talking as if he's some kind of specialist already. :D

I'm on the fence about him.

While hes not the reincarnation of Petre Cech and If he was of a similar standard and was a striker we would be more than happy I also dont see the vast difference of value or pay scale nether.

He has saved 10 out of 26 in his career in Spain and England not including shootouts (his shootout record in England is 4 saves out of 8, not sure about Spain). I strongly doubt there's another keeper with a better record than that.

Diego Alves with 24 saves out of 50 during his time in Spain.

Absolutely embarrassing for the first and third goal and looked a bag or nerves all game.

That’s why I’ll never understand why people say Courtois is worse than him. Even though Tbo is having a pretty rough period, he ain’t conceding those. 

Even the second goal he should’ve come out for a lot earlier.

It's quite funny that fans moan about lack of ambition yet there's constant cries for average players to be regular starters. Remy, Caballero, Bats, Begovic, Cahill (before he actually became one), Schurrle, Moses (as a winger) last few years of the top of my head.

Courtois would have conceded all 3 goals, too, though. In a way, all 3 goals were classic Courtois goals: the first one was a worldie shot from distance which is a Courtois special and for the other 2 Courtois would have just stayed on his line and come out too late and conceded in typical fashion.

There wouldn't be such cries if the team were actually functional. If fans call for the bench, then it means something's visibly wrong in the regular starting line-up. We have been a dysfunctional team on life support for too long now (yes even the title winning seasons masked our deficiencies) so it's no surprise that people are looking for alternatives everywhere.

There were calls for Remy/Bats to get regular minutes even when Costa was on fire. I'd rather a Courtois at 50% than Caballero or Begovic at number 1, likewise Willian/Schurrle.

I doubt even Turnbull would have conceded the first goal, if i watched the game with no knowledge on the players i would have assumed he was an outfield player in goal after watching that.

Poor game but he’s been solid for us every other time he’s played. Can have an off day, solid enough option for a number 2. How he made that save from Son but didn’t keep Eriksens shot out still confuses me to this minute.

I doubt that even Turnbull would have conceded the 3rd goal in Roma's 3-0 trashing of us and that's just one of the less ridiculous goals from distance that Courtois has conceded. Lest we forget Adam's goal from inside his own half or Henderson and Eriksen's goals at the Bridge last season.

There were? I very much doubt that, at least I can't recall anybody being against an on-fire Diego. I remember they were being called for when we were being shit and Torres/Costa/Morata weren't producing, so people were looking for change.

Yeah. Courtois would have lost us this game with 1-6. Worst goalkeeper ever, I agree with everything you always say about him.
