After watching the Charity Shield or whatever it's called and the performance of the Man U goalie,any clear thinking person will appreciate what a find we have in Maka. That Foster guy was like an outfield player stuck in goals. He was fumbling,dropping,getting caught in possession... And the two goals he let in would have been saved by Maka in his sleep :agree:

If/when he has recovers to have a few good games and then drops a clanger we can start to compare the 2.

Foster did seem very nervous today but he is still a top keeper. All players, regardless of position or ability will have an off day... The difference between decent and class is the ability to bounce back quickly.

I keep expecting Hibs fans to finally realise that Maka is a goalie worth respecting (and certainly keeping as the starter). His great performances have far outweighed his bad ones, but I dont think anything will change certain peoples' minds. He's just the nominated fall guy:yawn:

If Maka was as good as you constantly harp on about why isn't he playing for a top team in Serie A/Premiership/La Liga?

When Foster starts consistently dropping clangers we can compare the 2 - until then Foster is better than Maka.

May I ask what stats you're reffering to?

I think you're kidding on if you can't remember many mistakes. He makes far too many. In the game yesterday he took a goal kick and decided to punt it into the stand half way inside our own half:confused:. He also dropped a couple of crosses almost resulting in a goal, the Aberdeen thing was stupid. Why kick it off the guy anyway??

I've lost count of the number of times he's made an @ss of himself but 2 off the top of my head are the Aberdeen game at Easter Road (07/08?) where he made 2 blunders in the same game, fortunately we got back in it and drew 3-3, the other one is the derby game where he virtually threw the ball in his own net at Tynecastle an the Hearts fans started singin his name

Not posted for a while but Jeez we now complain because Maka drops balls that almost result in goals. The laddie isnt perfect but there again he's on scratch grand a week. Lets just sign the Chelsea boy with the hat, pay him as much as the rest of the team put together and ignore the mistakes he makes :grr:

zlatan
09-08-2009, 10:04 PM
Zibi and Simon Brown really have scrambled our mentality on goalkeepers.

For every mistake Maka has made for us since his arrival there has been a game where he's had a great peformance.

Cech and Casillas are considered the best in the world and they have made a collection of total howlers in the past 12 months alone whereas Valdes of Barcelona had an almost flawless past 12 months but is never listed amongst the best, mud sticks badly with goalkeepers it seems.

We're the only set of fans who in post-match discussions can say the keeper had a great game but then say he'll probably have a howler in the next game though.

Am I right in thinking that a certain Mr. James Leighton lost his place in the MU team after a mistake in a cup final? We untimately benefitted big time from that mistake. Problem with Maka is not that he makes the occasional mistake which is the lot of every goalkeeper. It is that he does not have a safe pair of hands, appears to lack positional sense and his distribution of the ball is woeful. Hopefully Stack will put pressure on him to right these things and that he will go on to be a Hibs legend but somehow I doubt it. Of course we could look at it from another point of view. If he was any good he would have been sold by now.

Has Foster ever jumped for a nothing ball that the CH was dealing with, only to have it drop right through his arms, bounce under him and go in?

Has Foster ever blootered a kick out against someone's erchie and the ball cannoned into our goal?

Does Foster get stuck behind a player at a corner or set piece 2-3 times per match allowing the ball to drift into the six yard box unclaimed?

Does Foster run into his own CH and allow the opposition forward an empty net to shoot at, which they score from?

Does Foster drop the ball from a cross and lose control of it 1-2 times per game?

Just wondering likes.

Didn't see the charity match so can't comment on this Foster gadge - but it should at least demonstrate to some of Maka's critics that even goalies rated by one of the world's top managers - young goalies in particular - are liable to make the odd gaffe.

I think this is a big season for Maka - he's got a good bit of first team action under his belt and is now the man in possession with a good and more experienced keeper in Stack breathing down his neck.

It will be up to Maka to improve his concentration and thus cut out the daft errors to claim the jersey as his own. I for one think he has the potential to be a top performer and international - hopefully this season he'll prove me right.

Glad that Stack is in to give a challenge to the number 1 jersey but in the 5 pre-season games that I've seen Maka in he has shown improvement from the one that ended the 08-09 season.

Hopefully new coach Scott Thomson will get more from him and he keeps this form up into the new season.

Nobody's saying top goalies don't make mistakes!

People are saying Maka makes too many. As someone said, dropping the ball 2 or 3 times per game is not what the top goalies do.

As for the Shut-out stats being good, that's down to the team rather than just the goalie.

Saying that, his performances lately have been good, though still making the odd crazy error

Danderhall Hibs

Correct, before that clanger he was playing as well as he has in pre-season games - clean sheet at Tiny etc. As I've said his problem is the clangers he slips in after a few good games. I expect the new coach will be working on concentration techniques so the clangers stop.

If not I'd bin him (the keeper) after the next one and I'll start a sack the goalie coach thread. :greengrin

I can't believe how downright thick some fans are here. Maka is a complete liablity. Even when he isn't making glaring errors, he is doing silly things in every game. His positioning is a joke at times, and I have lost count of the amount of goals he has let in that are within a foot or two of his body and very saveable.

The idea of us going into the new season with him in goal again is a disgrace and reflects how badly neglected the playing side of this club is now.

Maka hands down for me each time.

The guys got it all, the skill (as shown by him skinning opposition strikers regulary in his own box), the personality, the ability to make any save look like it is outstanding...just class.

Maka will be a top top goalkeeper in the years to come. I just dont think we will be able to hold onto him, I bet he ends up back as Chelsea's number 1 by the time he is 30.

I think Maka was pi$$ed off with Miller for moving to block his path, so deliberately fired the ball into him safe in the knowledge Miller would be penalised for blocking the clearance.

The ref then decided to exercise poor judgement. That's all.

The George Best one and the Riordan one at Tiny are different though - they stuck their leg up to try and win the ball - Miller just turned his back on Maka and waited on him punting it against him.

Same rule though. You can't impede the keeper when they are kicking the ball out. That includes standing directly where they are going to be kicking it from. Miller was standing less than a yard from him when he kicked it. It's obstruction and the ref should have given a foul for it. And if he had, perhaps people would more remember a great penalty save from the big fellae that day instead of what was just a bizarre goal in a meaningless (for us) end of season game.

Maybe if Ma-Ka tried this practice he'd have a safer pair of hands.

Honestly though a lot of comments here are over-rated will Hibs fans ever be 100% comfortable with there keeper after Leighton/Goram days? I doubt it, but I'm 100% comfortable with the Orangutan (no racisms meant) for the coming season he's a class act and better than previous years.

Whether that's a rule change or not I don't know.It is in the goalie trying to punt the ball scenario...When they're standing so close as to prevent the goalie from kicking the ball freely... Now i'll supply the towel as long as you promise to throw it in :greengrin

You've answered your own point - he was able to kick the ball freely - the problem was he couldn't kick it to where he aimed it.

Seriously. Have you actually watched what happened? He's less than a yard away from him and has went towards him before turning his back just as the ball is kicked. If you don't think that's obstruction, then what exactly does qualify?

FFS - he never looked at him, stuck his leg out, nothing. If you think that's obstruction I think you're a basketball fan!

We've strayed slightly anyway - that howler isn't the (only) reason that I have my doubts about him.

Good grief. So he didn't take a few steps to the side to exactly where he was about to kick it from then?

We're just going to have to disagree here mate. All I can see is a goalie kicking the ball off a strikers back when he could have got rid a lot easier, you can see a lot more.

I'm sure Millar wouldn't have turned his back if he didn't think he was going to get hit! Why on earth would a guy turn his back when he's sure he's not in the way of a bullet from two yards? You're not getting another towel :greengrin

Has Foster ever jumped for a nothing ball that the CH was dealing with, only to have it drop right through his arms, bounce under him and go in?

Has Foster ever blootered a kick out against someone's erchie and the ball cannoned into our goal?

Does Foster get stuck behind a player at a corner or set piece 2-3 times per match allowing the ball to drift into the six yard box unclaimed?

Does Foster run into his own CH and allow the opposition forward an empty net to shoot at, which they score from?

Does Foster drop the ball from a cross and lose control of it 1-2 times per game?

Just wondering likes.


No

No

No

No

and No

But has Maka ever been lobbed from near enough the other teams box by Paul Robinson?:wink:
