    Always liked Sam Johnstone and I think he and Joel Pereira are top goalkeeping talents. I thought he played very well last night, and would have no issue with him being our number 2 keeper next season.

    He was reportedly excellent at Doncaster last season too.

    I liked his decisiveness in the game last night and his handling was confident, I'd not be opposed to him getting the back up spot this season over the sloth from Argentina we seem to be getting to replace Valdes.

    Senses danger very early, and showed a lot of confidence as well.

    I thought he had a solid game last night against tricky opponents. I'd like to see how he does on this tour and if he performs like he did this morning, then he should be given a chance. He looked far better than Lindegaard that's for sure.

    Thought he was good last night, got off his line early and often and judged them all perfectly. Spared the blushes of both Darmian and Carrick, the latter just 10 seconds in to the game.

    He made Lindegaard look like a reserve team u16 player.

    Needs to practice his kicking out. Still comfortably better than Lindergaard's though.

    I agree. He was so alert yesterday. I just wish we hold off the Romero signing for now and see how Johnstone does on tour or maybe Lindegaard will be sold and we'll go with De Gea, Romero + Johnstone as our 3 goalkeepers.

    Sign Romero and send him out on loan. He isn't going to get better fecking around on the bench.

    Keepers get their chances and make their names in injury crises'. When the first choice is injured would be better if he were on the bench rather than on loan. If he is any lower than second choice though, I'd agree with a loan.

    Is that even possible anymore except Youth Loans?

    Plus i think he will need registering in the 25 Man squad from now.

    I think he's quality. Good enough to be our number two.

    Very impressed with him last night. Read the game well and was quick off his line every time he sensed danger. Definitely a keeper to watch out for!

    He was apparently excellent at Doncaster first half and then at Preston too in the 2nd half of the season.

    I like him. Like a little prodigy of Hoek, think I'd rather him around for a year.

    I'm really poor at judging goal keeping talents for the most part. I guess I can identify quality sometimes since I knew from an early stage of Lloris' career he'd be class but in general I'm not sure.

    He did his chances no harm at all, very quick and positive when coming off his line to deal with any danger. Watched him a couple of times at Preston last season, he does look a decent goalkeeping talent.

    Even though the attention was on our new signings yesterday, I couldn't help myself being quite excited about his performance. His reading of the game and his bravery really stood out. It's good to see a young keeper come off his line and take charge of the situation. You'd hope that would impress LVG and Hoek too.

    I'd like to see him as our no. 2 next season and get a good run of cup games.

    If we end up with Romero and cillesen as our two senior keepers it would be worth his while sticking around because I think he would have a good chance of getting in the side ahead of both of those at some point in the season.

    I think he's promising as well but playing every game on loan would be far better than sticking round here on the bench all season.

    liked the look of him against club america, not afraid to come off his line.

    I wouldn't be against loaning him out again to preston for first team experience in the championship though, as he won't get regular game time for the first team instantly.

    His kicking and passing need some work, but he has the goalkeeping on point. His decision-making, speed of thought, and reading of the situations is amazing, and we know about his reflexes as well.

    I like him too but he should go out on loan to Preston and gain that much needed experience at a higher level. Maybe he can do a Hart.

    A championship loan would seem the logical move.

    Sign romero as de gea's back up. Lindegaard is happy to be number 3 anyway.

    Sam needs to go out on loan again. No point of keeping him here even as a number 2. At his age it is better for him to play.

    I'd rather we kept him and had him as the #2 choice battling for the main gig. We are going to get to the point where we cannot keep loaning him out all the time and need to make a definitive decision on him one way or another.

    Would love it for one of our local lads to be #2 keeper.

    I'd keep him this season, give him the cup games.

    Following the Joe Hart trajectory, he it would be great if he had a PL loan this season, one in which he was first-choice. Then, like Hart, he can return to Manchester ready to be first-choice, once De Gea leaves.

    Me too.

    I always wonder when is the right age to get a homegrown goalkeeper to be part of the main squad. We just can't keep loaning him forever after all.
