Forgot to mention that I really like the look of this fella. Unorthodox in a good way.

no number yet - Bravo currently has #1 - so there's a clue he might not want it soon.
Maybe put a 'Welcome' in the thread title PD?

Hopefully, if so looks like we are after valdez as second choice. Id take him, talk of Shay given as third choice too in the old richard wright role.

I hope all plays well for us with him, I do not trust brazilian goalkeepers, the last two good ones I remember were Taffarel and Dida and both of them had WTF moments.

Welcome!

The last really decent one I can recall 'off the top of my head', was Leao who played in the 1974 World Cup.

Felix, who preceded him in the 1970 team always had the propensity to be a bit 'flakey' at times.

Saw Leao only in videos, he was fantastic. With his footwork he would had fit perfectly in our system.

I really hope looks are deceiving because he looks like an absolute cunt. Almost raggish appearance.

I think the point is, with our team, they have fuck all to do. Bravo was having one poor shot per game and letting them in. No other shots at all - 7 in 7. Never, ever seen anything like it.

It should be a really easy job under hardly any pressure.

Once he has that puma shirt on he'll look fine.

For the record, Bravo never looked right in our kit.

It wasnt one poor shot per game John, some were save able, granted, but many were free one on one strikes owing to our defence being torn apart.

Just before we playe Chelsea at their place last season Courtois allowed 5 from 5 past him. Didn't hear that one reported did we?

for me bravo's shot stopping (?) wasnt the main issue...it was his complete lack of confidence that spread like a virus through our defence whenever he played.

Lack of confidence can have a big impact on performance SB, no doubt, hopefully Ederson gets a warmer welcome than Bravo got, as I'm sure that will help with his confidence.

Do you ever stop defending the undefendable ?Bravo was fuckign shit and everyone can see it, and thank fuck ,eventually, so did PeP.

We may get WTF moments with him but with Bravo we got WTFFFFF in 99% of his games.

Welcome Ederson.
