Lambert Delays Goalkeeper Decision

Lambert Delays Goalkeeper Decision

Paul Lambert has said he will pick the goalkeeper for the game against Newcastle on the day, after Guzan's performance gave him food for thought.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail ahead of the clash, Lambert knows he has a decision to make following Given's poor performance against Everton, and Guzan's steady performance against Tranmere.

'When a keeper makes a mistake it's highlighted, it can happen. It's not a comment on how good a keeper Shay Given is because Shay's a brilliant keeper. Brad's been working on a few things, whichever plays, I trust them to go and do it. Footballers like honesty from decisions, I do that in an honest way, whichever team I pick for Sunday, I'm doing it for the best reasons.'

reckon you could be right Fear but we could well see a change if Given makes any more mistakes.

Agree with Ted. Given does not look Sharp. New era new keeper. He came with McLeish. Enough said.

Perhaps that was a bit harsh. I do like Shay but time for Brad Guzan to get a run.

Everyone expects us to lose, give Guzan a go and see if he plays a blinder; if not Given can come back and Guzan's had a crack at the whip. It's a no-lose situation.

He's made one mistake in game two, any decent manager would put Given in and back him. That's his one mistake though, make another one in the near future then Guzan is in and it's up to him to keep the gloves. You can't axe Given from one mistake, you need to put your arm around him and back him, especially this early in the season.

He was pretty ropey in the Euro's too. Not sure a break would hurt him tbh.
