Ross Kemp's caf ID
- Sep 13, 2012
I think you'd be surprised at what you saw if you had to watch Schmeichel every week.his inconsistency at his age is a worry
id love a kasper schmeichel 7/10 week in week out
For example, Schmeichel was one of the few goalkeepers less active in claiming corners than De Gea last season. Yet I think a lot of posters here just assume he is super dominant for some reason.
Some random quotes from the most recent page on Schmeichel from a Leicester forum:
On defensive corners I’d put him up on the halfway line in the holpe that he just might snatch a breakaway goal.
Can't we get Rab Douglas back at the club he is on the bench today for Arbroath at the age of 49.
His effort for the first Goal was shocking , He made no effort at all to get to the Ball. Yet he stood watching the Ball land on Rudigers head.
It's time to give Ward his chance to see if he can do better.
If I could choose one predictable thing on a match day it’s that Kasper will kick it out of play 30 yards up the touch line or pass it to opposition multiple times.
There is a reason he plays for us and no one else has come in for him. Needs to be dropped.
I’ve really loved having Kasper as our keeper, and he’ll forever be a legend.
However, our awful defending at corners is linked to him simply refusing to attempt to collect crosses.
It was really highlighted by 2 corners in 10 minutes today, Alex McCarthy started on his line centrally and made the ground up to take the ball at full stretch at the very far corner of his 6 yard box. Southampton are in possession and can reset.
At the other end “HEAD IT CLEAR” is heard as Kasper literally watches the ball go over his head 2 yards out and makes no attempt to claim the cross. We are under pressure even after winning the first header, the ball bobbles around the area for a while before eventually it’s cleared and Southampton attack again.
