Me too, never wanted to see him again, but Smith has single handedly put us out the cup, and thrown the last 2 games away. Is he friends with John Higgins?

Aye, get Maka in - been critical of the big man many times in the past but he needs to return for Sunday. Smith has actually looked assured in the majority of our games but there's no escaping the fact that in our 3 biggest games of the season - Ross Co. away, Yams on Saturday and last night - he has sold the pies with horrendous errors.

Maka on Sunday and a fit Mark Brown for next season please.

I was thinking about Gomez the Spurs keeper the other day. Last season he was a clown, Alan Hansen described him as 'the worst keeper to ever play in the Premier league', making mistakes week after week, newspapers making fun of him, abused by his own fans etc etc.

This season a lot of pundits have described him as the best keeper in England, and has contributed massively to Spurs making the champions league places.

It goes to show that with keepers, who depend on the mental side and confidence more than other players, you can go from zero to hero quite quickly.

Maka back please:agree:

I liked Maka, although a bit unorthadox at times, every keeper makes mistakes and i think most of his were purely down to loss of concentration and at times lack of aggression. This could be put down to inexperience and also his mind being else where due to family problems.
He is certainly no worse than Stack or Smith, i agree bring him back.

I have said all along that Maka was dropped far too rashly in December, he's the best keeper we have at the club (fair enough I haven't seen Brown play for us yet)

Would feel much better with him in goals on Sunday :agree:

Ohhh this thread is going to be interesting. Grass is always greener and all that eh.

I hope Maka does come back in and plays well. I've always liked the big guy and almost got in a square go sticking up for him during the Rangers 4-1 game!

Admittedly I was pished and the other guy was right about his performance that day but I was adament that he's still a good keeper. :tee hee:

Now we know just how desperate we have become when we are calling for the return of Makalambay.

The goalkeeping (as well as the entire defence in general) was absolutely shambolic last night but Makalambay isn't the answer for me. I think he is a fantastic character and I have a lot of time for him as a person but he has been at fault for some pretty awful goals at times. He is still young, particularly for a goalkeeper, and there is still plenty of time for him to improve. However, I think that should be away from Easter Road.

For next season, I think we need to see Mark Brown in goal, with Graham Stack as the number two.

We might be clutching at straws true enough but we can't go out with the same defence and keeper as we have in the last two games, they were and are culpable.

We do not have a decent keeper at Easter Road. We have 3 keepers who between them could do a job but individually, cannot.

Rather than pissing around looking at more places in the team needing anything, our number one priority purchase should be a proper, decent, can catch the ball/kick the ball/stop the ball KEEPER.

THEN, we'll worry about other positions. If you have reliability problems between the sticks, you are ****ed. We cannot rely on the forwards battering in 2, 3, 4, 5 or even 6 goals if the dip****s at the back leak goals like the Titantic leaked water....

Maka isn't the answer. Yes Smith was at fault for some of our goals recently but Maka is a joke as well. He is one of many sh!ite bags at our club who would just add to the problem. I would rather have Graham Stack in goals than him and that's saying something. Im pritty confident that Mark Brown is a good kepper but we will have to wait and see.

To be fair to Smith, I think he showed he was a good keeper with Motherwell. Some keepers go through periods where they just don't do it, and he's taken a few knocks over the last year or so with getting taken out of the team unfairly, firstly at Brighton, where he was involved in some calamitous defensive displays, rather than goalkeeping displays, and secondly here after the St. J's game. I wouldn't be suprised if his confidence is shattered right now.

Smith is a good SPL level keeper, but not good enough for where we want to go.

Maka will grow as our performances grow and he will fulfil his potential to be a really good keeper. Play him every week from now on and give him a new deal. So what if he makes a blunder, he will learn from it under the right guidance.
