McCarthy is costing us points 08:38 - Aug 24 with 3494 viewsdirk_doone

McCarthy showed some improvement on Sunday. He came out and punched a couple of crosses instead of always retreating into his goal and instead of letting in his usual 3 goals, he only let in 1. But, his long kicks all either went straight out of play or to Man United players and he seemed to do everything in his power to avoid the Greenwood shot that United scored from. That was caused by the panic that sets in with him when opposition players are attacking his goal. It would have been easier for him to let the ball hit him. That cost us 2 points to add to the 1 he lost us at Everton, where Forster would have saved 2 of those goals

McCarthy hasn't kept a single clean sheet this year. All of our clean sheets have come when Forster has been in goal. Over a season, the points McCarthy is costing us are going to make a massive difference to our league position.

Eh? Dirk's been posting on here for about 20 years.

His trademark is getting utterly obsessed with some players. The current one is Forster but before than he spent seasons trying to convince all and sundry that Lallana was up there with the world's best players! :)

I think they are much of a muchness but watching Forster fall apart before he eventually went off to Celtic was horrendous to watch , he was far worse than whatever anyone thinks about McCarthy's ability.

Out of the 2 McCarthy was the last of them to be picked and play for England. I wish McCarthy was more vocal but if we had to rely on one of them for a season than I would take McCarthy as he seems more steady whilst Forster could quite easily go off the rails again which would be a disaster.

I'd forgotten that one!

You're correct, Dirk went to one of those pre-season Emirates Cup matches and came back and told us all that Callum Chambers was the next Bobby Moore!

I think we better get the Samaritans on speed dial for him when he sees that McCarthy is about to sign a new 3 year deal with us!

IN my opinion Forster is the better goalie even at his age of 33 years. Obviously Father Time has caught up with him. But under koeman and puel he served us well, helping us to quality for Europe finishing in our highest position in the premiership under koeman, and getting us to the league cup final without conceding a goal until the final.he still holds the record for having successive clean sheets in a season I believe. On the argument of his wages Reed gave him that contract is it his fault? the club at that time obviously thought he was worth it.would any of us take a reduction having agreed on a contract I wouldn’t . In today terms 70,000 is peanuts compared to some average players receiving much more for their limited ability . He will probably play second fiddle to McCarthy this season due to Mac signing a new 3 year contract. But when called upon he will do a good job as his understudy I am sure.

McCarthy had a reasonable game at Newcastle, he commanded his box and came out and caught a few crosses, also made a decent save on the stroke of half time

I still dont think he is the answer, but a little credit when he deserves it

I agree, Nick. It was his best game this year. Now, all he needs is to keep his first clean sheet this year.

With the free scoring West Ham up next - followed by the even freer scoring Manchester City away - I'm not pinning my hopes on McCarthy's 'clean sheet' stats improving any time soon.

We really need a new goalie! As I I don’t care what others say about Forster, but he’s just as bad, but McCarthy is now getting to a point where it’s really costing us points. I mean how the heck did he let in that second goal!? I doubt Forster would’ve done any better, hence why we just need a new number 1 in January

Forster would certainly have done better, He is not totally sh!t like McCarthy, which is why he keeps so many more clean sheets. We would not have lost today with Forster in goal.

The first goal was poor, but you think oh well we go again.
You can’t keep saying it was a foul 5 minutes ago, it shouldn’t have been given.
You play to the whistle. Kids fûcking stuff.

The second, well, from where we were stood it looked like he got hands on it, but no.
Awful keeping.

The decision to play Diallo on the right was baffling with Tella and Walcott on the bench.
But then to put Walcott on up front and Armstrong to left midfield?
WTF?

I’m sorry but playing KWP at left back isn’t working. He was too easily controlled yesterday as they knew he was only going one way with the ball.
It is unfair on the player and more importantly us who spend a lot of time and money getting to these places.

Hassenhüttl maybe a nice man but that don’t win football matches.
Dean Smith fired some fûcks into his team at the break (as he did in his last PL match) and his team came out a different side.
How many times have we been pîss poor in the second half under the Austrian’s leadership?
If I could trust the powers that be to employ a decent replacement I’d say thanks Ralph but you’ve taken us as far as you can, thanks for breaking all these club records, bye bye.
But they won’t

As long as we are not in danger of going down Hassenhüttl will stay. Unless another club comes along offering him more money then he be gone like a flash.

We may as well cash in on KWP in January if there are takers and use the money to get a decent fûcking keeper at the club. One that can make routine saves and can kick a ball.
We are overloaded with right sided players and have Perraud and Small who can play LB.

We thought that we had the answers, It was the questions we had wrong.

My biggest complaints about McCarthy is he doesn't appear to organise the defence and his distribution. How many times do you see him throw the ball to a defender who is clearly going to be under pressure to release the ball because their so close to an opposition player?

Yeah, but I’m certain that Forster would’ve cost us points previously and in the future where McCarthy didn’t, as they’re both just rubbish hence why we need a new keeper!

How long have you been watching Saints???We had our highest finishes this century - 7th and 6th - when Fraser Forster was in goal. He's kept numerous clean sheets and got us to a Wembley final with clean sheets against Arsenal and Liverpool twice. Even this season, when he's played, he's been good. We'd never have achieved any of that with McCarthy in goal. He is a liability and shouldn't be playing at this level.

Of course there are better goalkeepers than Forster out there but could we get them with our limited transfer budget and lowly league position? Personally, I'd like to see us buy Hrádecky but with Bayer Leverkusen doing so well, would he come here? The important thing is to get rid of McCarthy so he can't play for us any more. We could take any random goalkeeper from the Championship and he'd be an improvement on McCarthy but getting one better than Forster to come here will be more difficult because we won't pay more than £10 mill for him and he'd probably already be at a club of our status.
