Petr Cech

Whilst i believe Courtois is the longterm first team GK in waiting,i expect him to have some problems in his first season here so would want us to keep Cech for 1 more season for that reason (and a few others)

Cech is apparently likely to miss the start of the season,so Courtois can start the season and we take it from there.

We let Courtois go on loan in World cup year when it would have been better for us to have him in our squad instead of Schwarzer.

We have employed Cech for 10 years on high wages and given him the oppurtunities to play in many big games and win alot of medals.

Both of them should atleast be prepared to compete for one year.

Cech almost died playing for this club. That'll never be forgotten. Legend.

Can't even find the words anymore...

Both would want to play and I do not think the club will use the Real Madrid way of handling keepers. Cech has been a terrific player for us and is obviously a Legend but Courtois is the future now and we must accept that and be really excited about it.

The club let Lampard and Cole leave so it won't surprise me if they let yet another legend leave. Whats important is that we all understand that these changes are being made for the best of the club. Goodbyes are a bitch but its time to continue the legacy with younger players.

Legend no doubt, top level GK no doubt, big personality no doubt, but Courtois is our future and arguably better than Cech already. It's a tough decision to make and I'm just glad I'm not Jose. Whatever the outcome would be thank you big Pete for everything you have given to our fans.

Courtois is coming as no.1 next season. There is really no doubt. Next season is make or brake for Jose, and with Cech even in doubt for beggining of the season I don't think that Jose will play Schwarzer(or maybe Blackman :D) until Cech's fit. And there is no guarantee that Cech is going to perform after the injury, and with us going literally for the treble, there is too much risk.

I wouldn't say theres no doubt. Petr Cech is the finest goalkeeper this club has ever had, and he's still an exceptional goalkeeper at a great age. They are both top goalkeepers, both world class, but many would argue Petr's experience gives him the nod. In my eyes it comes down to Jose's preference, but either way we're clearly in safe hands.

Cech has been amazing for us during his time here, but last season, even though it was relatively good for him, i began to doubt him much more, as his mistakes seem to have increased, and his commanding attributes have faded.

Everytime he came out of his goal to punch the ball or catch it, it was a scare for me atleast.

Many times he came out a few footsteps, and decided to go back, and you knew that moment of indecisiveness meant that if the opponent managed to get a clean header ahead of our amazing defenders, there is a real chance they will score.

This is in no way a summary of his season, but just small things which changed for me while watching him.

He is a legend for us already and i wish him the best, here or elsewhere, but after 3 seasons of being loaned and establishing himself as world class, We simply cant afford to not get Courtois back as our no. 1 as otherwise we will lose him IMO.

This day was bound to come, and its something we as fans should embrace, while thanking Cech for everything he has done during his time here.

Its different with Goalkeepers, so there simply has to be an undisputed No. 1.

I think if we let petr go, there's a chance he'll go to another English teams. He is currently 9 clean sheet away from all time CS record in premier league history. I hope so much that he will stay for another year and Courtouis agree to loan for another year and extending his contract.

Let's do a Madrid: Courtois plays all the FA cup, League cup and Champions league matches (20 + matches). Cech plays the EPL matches. Let Courtois be the 2nd choice behind Cech for one year, to adapt, to learn and then he can take over it from Cech.

no keeper of courtois level would be willing to accept sitting out of all the league matches. propose it to him , and he will be gone within 10 minutes.
