Have to admit, I was a little concerned about our goalkeeper situation last week but have to say Meslier pulled it out of the hat today, perhaps a few more ups and downs along the way but he's certainly looking like he can be our number 1 for years to come.
There are non more easily offended, than those that want to be.

The BT commentary team couldn't believe Melsier was 21yo, one of them said he looks like a 14yo boy :mfpa:

Perception is a funny thing. Watching last season I thought he only looked about 18. I never thought he was ready for the premier league and looked a little lightweight. I was impressed at the Liverpool game, less so v Fulham, and today he was imperious. He seems a foot taller and 6 years older than he did at the end of last season.
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

I’ve had absolutely no qualms at all in seeing Meslier become our no1 since the Arsenal game last year. Early days, yes, but he’s shown no signs of not being up to it so far. Delighted for him

Tough run of fixtures coming up, Even though I could see them picking up points if they can get back to last seasons form

Very disappointed with Wilder's comments, expect more from him...and lets be honest without the save's the goalies made it would have been around 4 or 5-2 to Leeds as their keeper played a blinder also.

Bamford himself said it went in off his nose so it was not a header it was a noser.
