Kasper Schmeichel...

Recommended Posts

I think we all take him for granted at times, he's having a great season!

 

When people talk about our brilliant transfer business with regards to Vardy, Kante, Mahrez et al, people tend to forget we only paid around 1.7 million for Kasper!

 

373 games, 205 of those in the PL with 63 PL clean sheets, 25 on the list of PL keepers with most clean sheets!

 

Would love him to copy Vardy and get in the goalkeeper 100 club for cleansheets, only 15 have done it so far, maybe going to need 3 or 4 more sessions to achieve it so its big ask!

He's been brilliant for years. The amount of times people on here have tried to claim Kasey Keller or Ian Walker or some other good but mistake-ridden keeper from our past was better than him is nuts.

Leicester City Legend already (374 appearances), getting better by the game this season and at only 33 still got plenty of years in his tank.

 

Will he surpass 500 games for us?

 

We're lucky to have him:

As a shot stopper he is one of the worlds best imo, shown in the last few games since the restart. I think even by Leicester fans he gets majorly overlooked and isn't appreciated enough. However, his distribution lets him down drastically.

That passage of play where he saved a fierce Tierney shot before kicking it upfield with perfect weighting for Vardy to latch onto past their defence was remarkable.

 

Don’t think you’d get many (if any) keepers in the world that would be able to do that

Shot stopping is never in question, particularly from inside the box. World class at that. Unfortunately he's been busier than we'd like in that regard.

That. And regrettably, his inability to command his box, particularly from crosses.

We are lucky to have him, but for anyone wondering why he’s not moved on to a ‘bigger’ club, there are your reasons.

He's a legend for us and is the best quality keeper we could possibly get (even with our lofty position). 

 

Baffling he isn't appreciated more but hopefully his behind closed doors form will make some realise his value to the club

Watching him against Villa and Chlesea back in January he looked like he may be on the wane but has been majestic since the restart.

 

The performance last night was right up there with the highs of Sevilla.

He's been great since the return. He seems to command his area far more regarding crosses, particularly corners.

I'm also loving his pep talks in the tunnel before the match! Pumping them up. Go on Kasper! 💪

I think his distribution stuff is because he is more adventurous than the normal goalkeeper. If you're knocking it to a CB 10m away then it's super easy. Look at the attempted quick outfield ball in the first half yesterday (can't remember who was on the end of it, I think Perez)...takes the ball romr a corner and pings the ball almost perfectly to put Perez in. Counts as a failed pass but it's such a useful weapon when it works.

Currently the best keeper in the Premier League..Better than Edison,Allison,lloris,Pickford,Henderson,de Gea..Where did he get that punched clearance against Crystal Palace ? ..his been keeping that hidden in his locker..landed 5 yards outside the box

Schmeichel is in beastmode at the moment. By far our best player after the restart.

He's a tournament & big game don. Champions League nights he stepped up and was tied with Handanovic for best goalie of the '18 World Cup(Lloris overrated imo)

 

Consistency has improved with age and has grown into the leadership role albeit I think we'd be better off with a defensive/midfield captain.

 

Certainly far surpassed hero status, guys been here since Sven. Longest standing player now? Gotta love him

Yeah but he sometimes kicks the ball out so we need a new keeper :rolleyes:

its more the 4 or 5 times a game he makes a shit kick right down the middle of the pitch to their midfielders that puts us back under pressure straight away people have a problem with.

 

You can mock all you like over it but its a much bigger part of a keepers game and every bit as vital as shot stopping if you are playing a possession game, Kasper NEEDS to improve this massively or yes the club will need to replace him, its not the biggest priority we have but its still something that needs addressing either by Kasper improving or signing a replacement.

 

No player is irreplaceable and no player should be immune if it improves the team

ask Klopp and Pep why they spent shit loads on top keepers then, it is vital if you want to play a possession game, we have other priorities but that doesn't mean its not an issue
