Spot on, it's the same as when Lopez supplanted Casillas at Real, and identical to the Pantillimon-Hart situation at City. In both scenarios the latter is, clearly, the far better goalkeeper, but whilst the other isn't making any errors, you have to continue to play them, right?

It's not like the Hart situation at all because Hart sucked for a long time and deserved to be dropped long before (maybe even last season). He made mistake after mistake and bad ones in big games. Cech made one bad mistake. Schwarzer didn't make any errors but he also didn't make a single save that a small child couldn't have made. This isn't like a striker scoring because that still takes doing something active rather than just sitting around while your players attack. Cech is a better keeper and his poor form has been massively exaggerated.

He was brilliant. He didn't deserve to lose this game... Weird to say this about a 41 y.o. free transfer.

Isn't it just f***ing typical?

In Carlo's time we were complaining about the lack of a good no.10 and a decent backup keeper, and now... :lol:

There was this one powerful long shot which he caught and made look effortless, but I'm pretty sure many would have simply tipped it over the bar or punched away. This was all experience.

It's a shame he hasn't had more chances, because he truly is still a class goalkeeper. I hope he sticks around as our number 2 next season. For the first time since Cudicini left I feel safe about our GK situation!

Not only that but he is also a truly professional guy and a very nice character to have in the dressing room.

Schwarzer has kept 5 clean sheets in 7 appearances for us this season and on the two occasions he didn't? We lost 2-1 to Sunderland on both times after scoring first...

Still a better #2 than we've had in a while & that most teams have anyway. Of course he was going to be rusty, should definitely be here as long as we can retain.

Yet another clean sheet for him!

Good game overall. Is a lot of pressure to go in for Cech in a CL semi-final against a team that is said to be better than yours by many, but this 41 year old handled it well.
