Kasper Schmeichel

Recommended Posts

I like Kasper also but why can’t I not critique what I consider a howler by Kasper. That’s shot probably goes in once or twice every 100 with the quality of a premier keeper trying to stop it.

 

the same with the Richarlison goal which was very soft but I thought today’s shot was softer.

 

We can’t gift teams that sit deep against us the first goal and unfortunately for Kasper he has the past few games.

the world class saves are great but the simple stuff is more important as they happen more often, it was a tame side footed volley not a vicious shot he could barely react to, it seemed to go straight through him with that little pace on it a minor deflection, if there was one, off of Justin would have made very little difference.

Was it me or was there a slight deflection from Justin which may have diverted the ball slightly and wrong footed Kasper. 

I'm glad other people have spotted this too. I didn't notice it at first but when you see the angle behind the goal, you can see the shot gets a faint touch off Justin's boot which diverts the ball past Kasper, and of course he doesn't have time to react.

It would have made a huge difference. Kasper has set himself and the deflection diverts it past him.

It's not even necessarily the severity of the deflection. Think Kasper was waiting to see what would happen if it touched Justin's boot on instinct to not be wrong footed, but the shot was caught so sweetly that he basically had no time to adjust. I usually have little sympathy for keepers beaten at their near post but make exception in this case.

His contract runs out in June 2023. He'll be few months shy of his 37th birthday. Better start looking for a replacement now, as his decline is around the corner. Better keepers than him (Cech, Casillas, Lloris etc) have declined massively by the time they hit 34. 

 

Great shot stopper, produced multiple game saving moments in the last 10 years. Still goes missing on corners and free kicks.

Thought his distribution was much better today and his positioning to cut out two counter-attacks very impressive.

Yep. Don't think any kicks went out of play today either.

 

He was like Neuer-possessed for that first one he cut out!

Overall, he is having a really good season.

is he up to 400 games for us next time out, our most capped player in the 21st century, a legend not appreciated enough imo

 

think for any other club with our size and pedigree, he would easily be their best keeper of all time, just a bit of an oddity we have had banks & shilton; often think maybe that might contribute to some of reason people do not show him respect he deserves on here

What counts as "claimable"? Is it based on the area the ball is delivered, number of defenders marking the goalkeeper, height of the ball when it's in the goalkeeper's area etc.? Or some individual watching every corner in the PL this season and making a subjective call?

Probably schmeichel’s biggest fan but this interesting on him at corners

Maybe unpopular but i would rather schmeichel who doesnt try to claim them that often and succeeds when he does than mccarthy who constantly tries to claim corners but misses 1 in 6. If you look at it most of the best keepers have 100% success rate, coming out for a corner and fumbling/missing it isnt acceptable tbh.

I'm loving how much you hear him screaming during (non-artificial-crowd-noise option) games recently. It's an insight into his mentality.

 

Although it would really piss me off having to defend in front of him...


The guy never shuts up. 

 

Earache!

Kasper's gone back-to-back for Danish Footballer of the Year.

 

 

That's his third time now, the same amount his dad won.

Not a lot of competition tbf. Bit like winning the most intelligent man in Coventry award.
