Now I'm a big fat dynamo!
It's definitely the right move but it does show a lack of trust in our 3rd choice keeper. If Poch genuinely believed he could hack it sufficiently enough he wouldn't be going back in for Vorm. Don't get me wrong it's absolutely the right move but Vorm was probably only not kept on due to HG/nonHG reasons. After all, the moment our 3rd choice GK gets remotely close to a potential start he ends up moving further down the ranks.

It's the right move but it does kind of show Whitemans status as genuine 3rd choice at the club was a false position. Either that or the management team didn't push through with offering him sufficient development opportunities much like we seemingly haven't with the likes of Walker-Peters etc. Right call but shows the youth boys aren't up to scratch.
We really need to start sending our youth players out on loan more. Surely it would be easier to judge if a youth player is ready for the first team if he has a season of loan games to look at and measure him by?
 
when the first choice GK gets injured its common to bring in an emergency loan GK - this is the smartest option not something to be ridiculed imo.

Actually searched for the Vorm thread so that I could post that gif...

To dare is too dear
This is a logical move, we need a backup to our backup and nobody in the academy is good enough yet for PL football, Vorm knows the players and the club.

Not sure what the issue is, that being said, neither Gazza or Vorm are good enough to be first choice imo but what else can we do right now?

Think signing a keeper next window should be a priority personally.

Donnarumma has just over a year left of his current contract and AC Milan are all over the shop. I saw we swoop as there aren't many top teams who need a new GK at the moment.

Don’t know why we bothered. We’ve already got another international captain who has experience of keeping in Europe.

Make or break time for Gazza now, the pressure is on him but he will find out if he can cut it and so will we.
