Deserves another thread of his own. I find myself watching him more than anything else. He and Alex Smithies are the two most nonchalant looking 'keepers i've ever known. Looks like he's an England Keeper playing in the park with kids the way he walks around. Makes it look so easy, such a calm persona, more so even than Alex perhaps. He plays like he knows something we don't. Bad mistake for the first goal, should have pushed that wide, but a superb recovery. He eats those motherfcuking crosses for breakfast. Overjoyed with Joe so far this season. Losing Alex was horrible, i loved the way he carried himself, old school class. Never imagined i could like another goal keeper as much as i liked Alex Smithies. I think people are underestimating how well he's done precisely because he's made it look so easy. Good goalkeepers do that. Got to love the fact he wasn't afraid to talk about getting in the England squad. He shouldn't afraid. He's far better than Rob 'comfortably the best 'keeper at the club' Green ever was.
Joe, i've got my fingers crossed for you buddy, so far you're a hero of mine.
Ps Having just watched Joe's interview on the offie, how refreshing to see a player who isn't scared being in front of a camera. More words from him than a dozen interviews with most players. Obviously a self-confident fella. Great interview. You want to get him on the podcast asap...
I smiled when he said they have the huddle and Toni Leistner usually speaks and they try not to laugh at what he says. I used to play for a team with a German captain, and Markus used to love that kind of thing and all the British lads would be chuckling away. It was always nice, though. Made you feel a bit more appreciated i suppose.

Four loan signings, four (touchwood so far) very good signings. Rangel, what a signing he's been even if it pains me to say it. Don't see Darnell replacing him any time soon at right back. Was it Clive i was reading, or was it Lee Hoos explaining football clubs typically only generally get one success out of every several signings?
Excellent recruitment. Wish to God we'd had this lot in charge when Redknapp and Hughes were around. We be 6th in the premier league...
