If Romero leaves he may see a little more action as it is unlikely either Henderson or DDG will stay to be on the bench, one final loan to a CL club from another league might just be the finish to Dean's education before he is installed as number1. That being said, I would rather Kovar get minutes in cup games than Grant as I think he has real potential and could get the most out of it.

Quality today I thought. Ole putting a keeper in charge of the board, knowing he's less likely to drop it than Phil Jones was brilliant man management.

All of our coaches were out with Covid so we needed bodies. Wouldn’t be shocked if he does become a coach though.

Is this going to be like Tony Coton where he joined as a player with a view to being a goalkeeping coach maybe?

Speaking of Tony Coton, he’s recently rejoined us as the chief goalie scout. He was our main goalie coach for like a decade before a knee injury stopped him doing coaching.

Popular character at the club old TC. Tim Howard hates him, though.

Judging from what I read earlier in the week yes. A new contract is being talked about in a player/coach role. On the teamsheet someone posted earlier he was down as the goalkeeper coach for the match.

Maybe he’s a good influence? I guess we don’t know what happens behind the scenes. Tony Coton, mentioned above, was a success in this regard. Would be a great outcome given we’ve never played him, but he’s been pretty loyal all things considered

In interviews I've read I think he finds it tough being third choice and does work hard. Apparently the fittest of all our first team goalkeepers. A player/coach role might be appealing rather than dropping down a couple of leagues to play for another club for a season or two before retiring.

Mask Man bottom left looks bereft at Grant's board holding performance.
