Great to see we have filled a position with an experienced good goalkeeper who cost nothing , cant ask for more , means we can spend more in the 2 - 3 positions we need too , lets just hope Morgan didn't mean the back up goalkeeper position was not one of the 1 o2 2 new faces Morgan expected to see haha ! I doubt it and im sure the " Watch this space " words Morgan used are towards a big money centre half and a left back and im hoping Mills aswell !

this would seem like a decent signing for you and retains any budget for elsewhere, as opposed to a back up keeper.

It's good news for WW but I wondered why De Vries was happy to exchange a certain start for a period on the bench. I have read his comments and they are the ones that I would have expected him to make. They are the same brave words that Hahnemann uttered on his arrival. Then I reflected on the WH-MH situation and realised that DDV has a point about the possibility of competing well against Hennessey. No-one is better than Wayne when stopping shots head-on but he still tends to flap when going for crosses. I don't know if DDV commands the box any better but, if so, he is in with a chance, especially if Hennessey lets in a couple of goals from crosses he should have cut out. Given that Wayne is such a tall man, one would have thought that this was the aspect of goal-keeping in which he would excel.

I dont think WH flaps at crosses , its the fact he does not come out and command his box enough , when he does his handling is usually very good , its just for such a tall GK he should be doing what the mighty Murray used to doo and anything in that box was his and if your in the way then tough **** hahaha , but on the other hand Hennessey's kicking is awsome and as you say he is a fab shot stopper so with De Vries being a keeper who does command his box then its good to see we have 2 very good keepers on our books !

As I wrote on another thread I still have my doubts about the Wayne. You are both right in my book. One, he does not come for anywhere near enough crosses. Two, when he does he does flap at them. Great shot stopper and he has certainly improved but there is still something missing- I just don't have the greatest confidence in him.

My response to Oddjob is the same as yours, Yorkie. WH certainly does not come out and command the box enough. In fact, I have often seen him in two minds when a cross is pinged over. And I have also seen him flap when he does come out. To be fair he often takes the ball cleanly too but one cannot be certain of it in advance. This is not just my opinion because wherever I sit in the BW stand I can sense the tension around me when a ball is crossed into our box. Yes, I know that's a natural response to a dangerous situation but it's more than that. I didn't discern the same nervousness in the crowd when Hahnemann was playing. You're right about Murray, though, Oddjob. What a tragedy!

We all loved Matt Murray for his commanding his box skills but his kicking off the deck when passed back to him was awful , to say WH is only what 23 ? i think the qualities he already has for goalkeppeing terms a very young age is far advanced than many , yes his shot stopping is great but so is his kicking which none of you mention , personally i prefer your 2 centre backs to be able to clear and take pressure off a goalie which none of ours do , thats why id love Dunne to sign , I cant think of many goals last season that came from crosses under Waynes nose , mostly bloody screamers , I looked at a video the other day of the top 20 goals and we had loads AGAINST US haha , Merieles for Liverpool , Neville and the russian for Everton , Varney for Blackpool , Elmander's dribble , i was like jeeeeeez goal of the season candidates saved there best for us lol
