He might not be a bad keeper but he does not seem capable of playing at the highest level either. Needs to be replaced ASAP!

I think if there was a huge list of outstanding GKs yes go for it but I still dont think Henderson, Onana and Donnarumma are vastly superior. Oblak and ter Stegen? 99% Unattainable but outstanding GKs. I still think United wont even replace De Gea with Henderson and you could say hes had a worse 2 years than Kepa has for mistakes.

Cannot be blamed for anything at all, anyone says differently they need their head examining,.

Yeah lets knock him down before his debut

Dean Henderson? At this point, I might even take Nick Pope!

Henderson, I doubt will be Uniteds number 1 next season and their Gk has had a poor 2 years. Nick Pope? I could see him as a back up and while hes had some great games, I feel hes overhyped and will likely be to the same sort of level Fraser Forster was at Southampton, which again wouldnt say is a huge improvement or the level you want at a top 4 club as your number 1 GK.

(Video): Frustrated Chelsea defenders scream at helpless Kepa as he leaves dangerous cross

https://www.chelsea-news.co/2020/07/video-frustrated-chelsea-defenders-scream-helpless-kepa-leaves-dangerous-cross/

Chelsea have just conceded 5 goals to Liverpool, yet their goalkeeper’s worst error was after all 5 had gone in.

If you ever want to see a goalie in painfully bad form, just look at this.

Liverpool flash a free kick across the box – not even a particularly fast one, and the keeper stood there like an icicle.

The ball literally travels 3 feet in front of his nose and he can’t move from the spot, so transfixed with terror is he.

The defenders are screaming at him not because he should come for it – it’s long gone by then – they’re screaming at him because they can’t believe he didn’t.

You can see the horror moment in the clips embedded here:

Conceded 13 goals from 18 shots on target since the restart in the PL. Fuck me, that's horrible.

For some reason I still believed in him before the covid break but since then I've well and truly seen the light. After that fraud of a performance the club should just leave him in the streets of Liverpool and tell him to walk home.

Defense doesn't really do him any favors either but he should still save at least some of the shots aimed at him, right? Near the end today Liverpool had one set piece and everyone was shouting at Kepa to claim it but he just stood on his line and watched the ball as it went across the box. He's really bad.

This is why i defend the defenders despite none of them being great themselves, a ludicrous amount of pressure is put on them due to our wastefulness and any clean strike going in. Get a new keeper to go alongside our new attackers (and pick atleast 3 constants in the back 4) and i think people will be surprised at how much better/less chaotic things look.

I don't think it ever got this bad with Courtois...

Said at the time people didn't realize how good we had it with Courtois. He may be a repulsive bellend but he's an unbelievable keeper.

This, he maybe annoying, not loyal bla2 but It was so obvious we had a wc gk in our hand. I said he wasn't the best shot stopper but compare to kepa, Courtois is a goat shot stopper. And i don't want to talk about crosses.

There's probably a few more but of the top of my head i can only think of three set pieces we conceded on Courtois's watch (Bournemouth home in 15/16, PSG 14/15 and WHU home on Conte's debut) he was ridiculously good at dealing with them, also in his last 2 years he had by inlarge the same group of defenders infront of him who went on to struggle with then under Sarri and Lampard.

Yeah well, you made it sound as if we made a mistake by letting him go when we wouldn't have had it not been for bloody Real Madrid!

Not really, he was never signing a new deal, I was referring to more the posts (which were prevalent in his last season especially) of people genuinely thinking he was an average keeper.

The problem as usual, and maybe hindsight is 20/20, is that we never found an adequate replacement for him.

Simply not good enough for this level, we have badly regressed from the great GK we had in the past, Cudicini, Cech, Courtois, it's obvious Kepa can't handle the pressure of playing for Chelsea, too many mistakes and lack of great goalkeeping skills (can't command his box, can't organize his defense, bad positioning, bad awareness, bad decision making, lack of confidence, very inconsistent). We need to address this issue asap.

I am even open to sending Kepa out on loan by sponsoring part of his wages. That is the only way a club like Sevilla, Valencia will take him. 

The best resolution is if Atleti can do us another solid and exchange Kepa for Oblak + 30-40m but that is wishful thinking

I don't want to talk about crosses. I just want to say my respect for gk who Mistime rushing out to claim crosses and got caught compound big time after watching Kepa. 

Let's talk about shot stopping. With kepa, ANY SHOT on target I fear it will go in. It doesn't have to be corner shot, even if it was saveable I fear it will go in. I mean that is me watching from tv, I don't know how our defender feel.

This. I have tried to be patient with Kepa this season, even after all the mistakes he has made but it has gotten to the point where I don't think he will make a save anymore. He's just there to make up the numbers but otherwise, he's just a ghost in goal. Better off not even playing a goalie if Kepa is gonna play.

Still wouldn’t have saved it IMO. It went round a bit of the wall, which was perfectly placed so it was hard luck that on the day the ref gave a foul and TAA got it in. I suppose it will be back to the KDB FK analysis soon enough. ‘£71m GK rooted for 2nd top class FK in same season’

All in all while the other goals theres more debate for (3rd and 5th goals) how he should of done better, its pretty much pointless with the FK.

Also does it matter how much closer Alisson was to Messi’s FK? At the end of the day he didnt stop it either.... its like saying you were 1 team off a winning coupon, you still lost. Guessing the guy running the account is a bin dipper? Surprised the caption isnt ‘Look this is how close top GKs get to saving FKs!!!! #YNWA #kingkenny #hendolad’ dont have twitter anymore and wifi onboard isnt loading the page so forgive me If I am wrong (if its one of our fans then I apologise in advance) but even then as I said its a pointless comparison it was still a goal 😂 if it was saved ok it would make sense. Plus if you want to get technical about it Alisson is 5cm taller than Kepa which gives him a higher reach in all I would imagine. Obviously positioning etc height isnt essential but you could have stuck the BFG in the net for that Messi FK and he wouldnt of got it. It was perfect. Trents not as good but still good enough.

It really, really does matter. Because when the player shoots the keeper can't know for sure if it's going in the top corner or if it's saveable. Kepa doesn't even try to save it so the shot only needs to be on target to go in. Not just yesterday either, he's been rooted on his line for many conceded goals this season.

That Alexander-Arnold free kick was so obvious where he was going to shoot (he always goes for the near corner from that position) so why on earth would the keeper not try to go for that? Kepa with his short hands probably wouldn't have reached it anyway but not even trying makes him look really bad.
