Thibaut Courtois

Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

Begovic is an outstanding keeper, and a far better second choice than I could ever possibly have dreamed of as a replacement for Big Pete.

Thank God we did sign someone of his calibre considering the extent of Courtois' injury... imagine if we'd had Rob Green in goal this entire time!

We would probably be 16 instead of 14th. I mean lets be real,how many points has Begovic really won us?

Seeing Begovic in goal for an extended period has made me realise just how fortunate we have been for over fifteen years to have had such great goalkeepers at the club.

Cudicini, Cech and now Courtois have all been very solid and as good as Begovic is, it's been noticeable to me that we haven't been playing with a really top quality goalkeeper.

dont get me wrong.i totaly agree begovic has been one of our best players this season.tibo has to play though.and im not saying it was a howler .im just pointing out that a world class keeper would have saved that.begovic is a great keeper but not world class.

He was at fault for the goal, but the opponent did well blocking him ( legal or not) from getting a decent touch on the ball. I think that was Invanoic who missed the kick on the clearance, and no one else went for the ball when it was up, really poor from us. This is one area where Cahill is not at JT level, probably never will. JT would usually get a good touch in crucial set piece defending scenario. We probably would have conceded before HT without him, so really can't blame him for the loss. A 0:0 draw at home against a promoted team is hardly inspiring, that's the best we would have got based on that performance.

Was a stark reminder of the difference between a good goal keeper and a world class one.

How many points dropped because of Courtois being injured......and Cech sold?

Certainly has been no shortage of games this season where the tiniest of differences would of determined getting one or three more points.
