    Laidlaws place to lose after coming in and doing well.

    He should keep his place and deservably so.

    You cant drop Laidlaw as he has not done anything wrong. Rocky has to be patient and take his chance when it next comes around.

    Laidlaw.

    Good performances and taking a chance should be rewarded otherwise it creates a culture of complacency.

    If you drop Laidlaw it makes a mockery of the "competition for places argument". Never been much of a fan of Laidlaw but he's impressed me since he's came in this season.

    Laidlaw

    By rights it should stay with Laidlaw. However when Lennon signed Marciano he made it clear this is my number one. Tough call all the same

    That's fine if Rocky was dropped in the first place for making mistakes. I don't think he was - he made one but ordinarily that would not have seen him dropped. He was taken out in prep for a game he was missing for religious reasons and so I think we could apply the same argument that Rocky had done nothing to be dropped in the first place.

    Play the best team and that includes Rocky as keeper.

    Would be happy with either, both decent keepers. Yes it would probably be harsh on laidlaw, but not bothered really with who's in net, as long as we win.

    Who says Laidlaw was there to give competition, Marciano was signed as number 1 with Laidlaw as number 2 and backup, I expect Marciano to play on Saturday.

    Laidlaw didn't just come in and have a fluky blinder - he came in and looked very solid over several games.

    He should keep the gloves.

    Harsh on Rocky, who didn't deserve to be dropped, but when you miss a game for whatever reason you run the risk of losing your place if the replacement performs well.

    As the manager you have to put out what you think is the best team to win on the day. At the moment I woukd say that the gk position stays with laidlaw based on his performances and for consistency.

    I dont think we had a clean sheet till Laidlaw came in?? I have not been at all impressed by Rocky this season I'm afraid.

    Laidlaw deserves to keep his place.

    Worth noting as well that Hibs have never lost a game that Laidlaw has played in.

    Laidlaw should start the game but like you, I fully expect Marciano to start.

    Laidlaw. Its a pity for Rocky because he wasn't dropped as such, but Laidlaw has performed well since he came in and IMO it would be daft to drop a keeper who is clearly in good form to bring back a keeper who was far from convincing in his last game.

    True but he's played about 20 league games and is undefeated. Granted they were mostly championship games but he looked comfortable and undaunted at an intimidating venue at Parkhead last week plus his debut v a decent European team in Brondby where he looked totally unphased. I like him a lot.

    Laidlaw. Keep him in until he's made a couple of mistakes and then Rocky gets his chance. Then back to Laidlaw once Rocky's made a couple of mistakes.

    Laidlaw, heís been excellent and doesnít deserve to be dropped, would send the wrong message to drop him!

  27. #26
    I thought Rocky was looking a bit err....rocky the last two games. Laidlaw has been excellent and deserves to keep his place.

    For some reason Rocky wasnít up to his best I thought before he had to take a break that wíend. Since then Laidlaw has been very good and defence for me looks confident with him as well. Not saying they arenít with rocky but it doesnít seem to have bothered them.

    He should stay on until he himself looks shaky or letís in a stupid goal.

    I think on his day Rocky is the better keeper, Laidlaw has done well recently though. I think Marciano only missed the Celtic game because of religious reasons so I feel it would be bit harsh to drop him because of that. Difficult choice, nice to have 2 good keepers though.

    Its a good choice to have, for me Marciano is one of the better keepers we've had in a while but I think when he has a bad day it really is a bad day.

    I feel Laidlaw is in possession, he's a good keeper, not done much wrong so he's there on merit and keeps the jersey for the time being.
