It is great that he wants to fight for his position but I think he has to rethink this for his own good.

Willy made 9 saves today. Kepa 8 in the last 5 games. Mendy is coming so he wont be even on the bench at the moment.

Transfer window is open for 10 more days, lets find a team where he can be regular even if this means we have to pay majority of his salary.

He's probably bored, sitting around doing nothing. :lol:

In all seriousness, if we really need a new GK coach of sorts, then I'm not sure why don't put Christophe Lollichon back in his old job (assuming we haven't done so).

He’s 57 I guess he doesn’t want to fly after balls anymore

He really needs to start fresh somewhere, before his confidence is so shot he falls into Karius level.

He is Karius level. It is not just a confidence issue, he is just that level. I said this a few months back, but Kepa is just dire there is nothing about his game, apart from his ability to spring back up after saving, that is top level.

It is why I'm done with Spanish players for a while. 
The last great is Thiago that Liverpool got, after that not interested. 

That's why I prefer that we didn't get Reguillon and got Chillwell. 

Yes Chilwell cost more but I'm sure he will be more reliable over many years at Chelsea, not just one season wonder.

Think that's a little harsh, the fact we fucked up and chose wrong shouldn't mean we don't get suitable Spanish players in the future.

Had we got David Villa instead of Torres we wouldn't be even having this discussion.

I would take these in a heartbeat (small list and obviously not ALL at once)


Saúl Ñíguez  (best CMF in the world IMHO, best Spanish player atm)
Rodri  (3rd best DMF in the world, after Kimmich and Casemiro  IMHO)
 

Mikel Oyarzabal  
Ansu Fati (top 5 teen in the world, and he is still only 17, one of the few bright lights at Barca atm)  
Thiago  (superb buy by the dippers, I do NOT like them getting him, and btw, yes he is a Spanish national team player, but he was born in Italy, and lived in Brasil too, and is Brasilian genetically) 
Koke   
Ferran Torres
Dani Olmo    
Pablo Sarabia  (last season on the list, as he turns 30 towards the end of the season after this one)  
Sergio Reguilón (I still rate the hell out of him, and 2 LB's are needed, it is just a matter of playing him enough so he doesn't get pissed off but oh well, sigh)
Luis Alberto    
Fabián Ruiz    
Riqui Puig (insane that Barca are considering selling him, he has baby Iniesta potential)   
Gerard Piqué same deal like Thiago when he leaves (he is 2 and a half years younger)
Sergio Ramos  same deal like Thiago when he leaves (he is a year and half younger than Thiago, and is better than Pique for the rest of their careers IMHO, and always was, even though he is a cunt, lol)

 

NO MORE SPANISH GOALKEEPERS!!!!!!!!!

You are right lol 7 months younger O.O
 

Heck, i bet if Cech had kept on playing and rejoined is 2019 he would still be our best goalkeeper.

We conceded many goals from set pieces in situations, in which Kepa should have come out and catch the ball. He rarely does that. So that means for our CBs that they MUST win the aerial duels. We only have one truly world class player at aerial duels and his name is Zouma. He wins almost as many aeriak duels as VVD does.
Tomori, Rüdiger and AC are not that good at aerial duels compared to Zouma.
So, Kepa clearly does not help the defenders either like Carragher pointed out couple of weeks ago that it is a horror for CBs to have a keeper like Kepa

To be fair, Cuntois is the best air commander in the world. So for the defenders it was very difficult going from watching Courtois catch every set piece, and the season after having to do everything their self.

I also think people are way too hard for Kepa. I think the kid tries his best. He is not a murderer, it is still a game.

Lollichon being our keeper scout must have had a major influence in signing Kepa.

He is also the 1st to notice Mendy - before Petr did.

Lets pray to the atoms this one turns out better.

Not sure how sad I keel about Kepa tho. On one hand his head must have got fucked up when his Mrs left him. But hes made a few quid and doesnt need to do bugga all for the rest of his life!

Bit like Drinkale!
