    Lewis

    New member and first post, my confidence in Lewis over the past month or so has gone completely, his efforts at 2 of the goals yesterday were amateurish at best, he does not have command of the six yard box and makes our defence jittery at best on every ball that's played into the area, crying out for a change of goalkeeper IMO.

    Agree but the rumour is that Southampton are paying his wages as long as he is playing, if he's benched Utd need to pay them. Don't know if it's true but would explain why he's undroppable.

    I very much doubt if that is true or you would expect all the other loan players to be under the same terms and getting a regular game which they are not, interesting though.

    If it is true then it's another ludicrous piece of business. The boy could become an excellent keeper but he is a rookie.
    Usually a keeper is in their late twenties before they are fulfilling their potential and Lewis is no Donnarumma.
    The lad needs a break and Deniz should get a chance, even if it means losing a bit of money.

    To be fair, he started off OK and it seems only latterly that he's gone doonhill a bit, but as is pointed out it's a ridiculous deal to sign up for in the first place. What if he'd been total keech from the word go? You're then forced to play him for the entire season? That's mental.

    To be fair for a few moments, the last thing you need when playing a young keeper is a defence that changes every match.

    Its standard practise when a team loans out someone who they want game time for.

    You pay more if he doesn’t play.

    When moneys tight you have to play him.....or don’t take him on loan in the first place.

    Yeah that’s pretty nail on the head.

    Lewis is a good young keeper which he has shown in the 1st half of the season. he is young so he was always going to make mistakes but when the "easy saves" are going in you need to question whether he needs to be dropped for a game or two.

    his confidence is gone which results on him doubting in his own ability. two of the goals yesterday he effectively dived out the way of the shot rather than reading the striker and having belief in himself to make a comfortable save. the 4th was right at him but hes some how managed to dive to the side to try and save it?
    the other two goals i still think he should have done better by moving his feet. hes a big laddie but doesn't seem to use his physical presence enough.

    I have to disagree with this. For the last 3 seasons the players have been 'shot' shy.

    If the pundit had not fallen out with Bain you may well have still been in the cup,Parish has hardly got the Dairy choir singing has he?.

    Dunno GB, was Bain not in goal when St Mirren came upto Dens and knocked them out last year, or when Sevco blitzed them in 13 seconds the year before

    This is spot on

    We have to be questioning our goalie coaching, that’s a few young keepers now in recent years not improving and regularly making the same mistakes in games.......simple things too, like coming off line, standing tall / making yourself big when strikers in 1 on 1, goal kicking and clearances staying in the field of play, coming for crosses particularly in 6 yards box - take the hit and refs will give the fouls !

    Even just instilling confidence in these guys, they’re a bag of nerves .......mind you it’s maybe seeing the team like nes that gives them same fear we have every week.

    Absolutely no idea what this has to do with the subject matter but you crack on.

    Completely agree. I feel sorry for the lad as having that ever-changing defence in front of you would hardly fill anyone with confidence but I'm afraid my patience has worn out completely after Sunday.
