    Sluga

    Those that to choose to vilify him should take a good look at themselves in the mirror.

    A number 2 Croatian International doesn't just become poor all of a sudden. There may be extenuating circumstances.

    Keep the faith.

      I think itís criticising him is fair enough. But people seem to be almost happy whenever thereís a setback, so they can start skating Sluga or Jones or Brown or whoever. I feel itís symptomatic of whatís going on in the world. Am currently reading State of Play by Michael Calvin. Itís a superb book about the modern game which talks a lot about this kind of thing.

        I haven't managed to get to every game so far this season. So on a rainy Sunday afternoon I decided to go through the highlights of all the league games so far and do some analysis of the goals conceded, and in particular the goalkeeping aspect of them.

        Whilst I'm not currently a fan of Sluga, there is no way that I would get onto him during a game, however, like everybody else, I feel entitled to an opinion, and what I have written below is purely that.

        In 11 games we have conceded 20 goals, at 1.8 goals per game, I have concluded that Sluga is at fault or partial fault for 7 of those goals (35%) of the total.

        Middlesboro at home, 2nd goal down at near post, although Shinnie is at fault initially for losing the ball on the edge of the area.

        Cardiff away, 1st goal doesn't come for long high hanging cross, and 2nd goal too indecisive and fails to cut out cross.

        Sheffield Wednesday away, poor roll out of ball to one of our players. (video was inconclusive as to who)

        Hull at home, 2nd goal, beaten too easily at near post.

        Millwall at home, poor palm out from cross shot. Although others were also jointly to blame in conceding this goal.

        Derby away, both goals, enough said.

        So errors of one degree or another in 6 of 11 games, of which I would say 4 of the goals are totally down to him. Defensive frailties (in particular not cutting out crosses) also contributed.

        The highlights also show that he makes at least 4 great goal saving saves (so not all bad)

        At a complete guess, and in conclusion I would say this is all pretty average for any average Championship goalkeeper.

          Now in my mid 80's, one thing I always remember from my school days. One of our best players ever, Syd Owen, came to our school to do some coaching, and he said if you pass the ball back to the goalkeeper, always do it to the side of the goal, and never at the goal itself. If that rule had been observed yesterday the first goal cold never have gone in, no matter what sort of a mess the keeper got into.

            Standard advice - from 50 years ago which is where it belongs. This is 2019 in the days of sweeper keepers who have to play with both feet. This is EXACTLY why Sluga was signed and he`s no better than Shea with the ball at his feet.
            It was a simple back pass to feet and he missed it and cost us a goal - stop dressing it up as anything else.

                  The fans have given Simone strong support up until now. Yesterday, his name was chanted prior to kick off and the team got a good reception at the end of the game. Understandably, Simone hung back a bit from coming over to the away end after the final whistle but as far as I could tell he didn't get any abuse.

                  I have no idea why he is making frequent errors but it's a no-brainer that he needs to be taken out of the first team for a while. It's hardly surprising that people are pointing out that fact on here and elsewhere.

                  You may be right that there are extenuating circumstances but there is little room for sentimentality in football and at the moment continuing to play him, and putting him under further pressure, may not be the beast thing for him anyway.

                    The extenuating circumstance is that there is an enormous gulf between the Croatian leagues and top level English football. He is simply way out of his depth.

                                  The bottom line is that he's costing us points. At what stage do you take him out of the firing line?
                                  There's obviously a good player in there but we can't keep him in the team, waiting for him to come into form. He probably wants a few weeks out of the limelight.

                                                        Do you have a mate called Costello ?
                                                        If so I'd recommend you team up and get on the comedy club circuit
