Will Potter have the balls 14:19 - Nov 8 with 1756 viewsSgorioFruit

To drop that sack of spuds Nordfelt and put Mulder between the sticks on Saturday?

My methods are not favoured by some but by god i speak the truth.

I hope he drops him. I do prefer Mulder and he stepped upto the mark when given his chance. Why he put nordfelt in baffles me

Surely it takes more balls to stick with Nordfeldt?

Another error and it's not going to play well and he looks very insecure.

I think he will stick with him though, otherwise Mulder would have been back after Ipswich.

Based on the press conference I think he'll stick with Nordfeldt. Said he doesn't want to drop players for making mistakes, wants to see what each keeper can do long term before making decisions, knows people are going to disagree and criticise etc.

On the one hand it's nice to see he's thinking long term (wants to be here the length of his contract, and longer), on the other Nordfeldt is sht.

He made it clear in that statement what this season is all about. Same drum I have been beating for the last few weeks when we have had a few bad results.

Have they had equal games yet? Maybe the idea is to trial everyone and combinations first half of the season and, if we are handily placed, go for it second half? His approach should certainly help avoid a Bielsa Burnout.

8 starts each.

Nordvelt is his preferred choice, it's as simple as that. He likes his ability to play from the back, this is more important in Potters plans than, basically, height, which Mulder has over Nordvelt.

He may at some point have to go back to Mulder, but he doesn't necessarily want to, and this has zero to do with having a look long term to see who maybe more in his plans for next season etc, as Risca is thinking.

That's just nonsense.

So was Potter lying today when he said his aim is to see what both keepers can do with a mind towards long term selection decisions?

Nordfelt hasn't exactly proved himself competent regarding his distribution though by any means though has he?
I agree that a GK with outstanding distribution abilities would be a very useful asset but a GK who is sort of ok at it but cannot command his area is surely more of a liability.
I hate to discount any member of the squad but after his display at Notts County away last year, it was obvious to most who were in attendance/watched the match that Kris is not the type of keeper to put any part of his body on the line for anyone or any team.
As a back-up keeper at the time it may have been expected by most, as a starter in the senior/1st team it's surely essential?
If there is anyone within a couple of yards/metres of him he either shrinks into the goalmouth or punches the ball away. Poor form for me.

The problem is potter has backed himself into a corner now. If he drops him then he is admitting he is wrong. Unfortunately I think his ego will prevent him from recalling Mulder. Mulder is so plainly the better keeper, it's not even close. Nordfelt is small, not agile and this talk about him being good with his feet is just a meme without any evidence to support it that I have seen.

I think some of the criticism of Nordfeldt has been a bit OTT. Yes, he was completely for the penalty Saturday and should have saved the winner vs Ipswich, but it’s not as if he’s been a walking disaster. Potter simply likes to play out from the back and trusts him better to do that. It’s quite key, particularly when we have a team of good footballers who aren’t going to be that competitive winning aeriel battles from goal kicks.

I do understand why people want Mulder in, he looks a safer pair of hands and it has been tough on him. It’s not as if we’re keeping DeGea on the bench to play a Sunday league keeper though.

TBF a lot of fans who have watched Norfeldt in Cup games as well as his occasional league games have always considered him to be weak.
For me, I just get the jitters when he plays ... very little confidence in him

It’s not nonsense at all. He backs up with what he’s saying due to the reluctance to play Dyer and Routs aswell.

He’s building for next year. The club as a whole are building for next year. Success in the league aka promotion/playoffs isn’t Potters target this year.

Steve Kaplan (SK): "We view this as a project in a lot of ways and respects. This is a reboot, we are doing it with young players who really want to be there. We know there are no guarantees we will get promoted in the first year in the Championship. This is a multi-year plan to get back up and, when we get back up, be sustainable."

Or were the yanks lying as well as Potter?

Can’t see Biedla burnout at the moment.

I’d be surprised if Leeds didnt add to the squad in Jan.

Them & Derby for automatic promotion this season in my humble opinion

That so bloody goes against my DNA as a football fan. I want my team to win every game. Sod this corporate speak. Kaplan know eff all about soccer anyway. Let’s get promoted again and worry about fecking “sustainability” if/when we get there.

Where in my post did I say we don’t want to win every game? If we get promoted then it would be great. Similar to last year, I highly doubt Warnock was told promotion would be his target, he was trying to rebuild a side still reeling from relegation and bad management stints by Trollope and OGS.

We are making huge cut backs, trying to shift a lot of dead wood, it’s very rare you can do all of this and at the same time have a squad capable of competing in a 46 game season for promotion.

It just seemed to be implied in your statement that he was building for next year, as if this season is not really important in the grand scheme of things. Apologies if I read too much into it.

Promotion is obviously the target, I think it is for everyone, but it’s not expected this season and Potter’s performance won’t be judged on where we finish this year in my opinion.

He is not admitting he is wrong at all. If you read yhe sttement from today, he said that Mulder has done nothing wrong and he has spoken to him about why he isn't in the side right now.
He said he is going to give them both a proper stretch in the team to see how they do. He doesn't want to drop people for mistakes. He chose to start with Nordfeldt, so he is continuing that. Mulder will get his chance again.
