Bettinelli
« on: October 05, 2019, 03:48:33 PM »
Hasn’t been good enough this season. We don’t need much from our keeper given how we control the ball. Just make standard saves and maybe one good one a match, and he’s repeatedly below that standard. Too many goals conceded that are either outright mistakes or questionable keeping for me.

Can't really blame him for the 2 today.

Must admit, if I was looking to upgrade at Christmas, keeper is where I would begin.
Marcus has lots of fans on here but if you were taking a helicopter view of our team. A strong international keeper to anchor the back line would be a step up.

He was solid today. Made some good saves but distribution so slow.

Harsh and unfair, excellent save from the deflected shot that was going in the corner, and could do nothing about either goal.

yep, at first glance I thought it was going down, the slow mo showed just how good of a save it was

Certainly not at fault today - wrong scapegoat (for those that insist on having one )

Thought his positioning was definitely suspect for their second goal Grandad. Too far off his line.
We all have different views though

Kept us in the game first half & top draw save in the second to prevent Charlton going 3-2 up so well done Marcus in my opinion.  Strange how people have completely different opinions on his performance
Hats off to Charlton’s keeper - great second half. We could have 5 without his top class saves.
Special mention for Jonnie Williams - best player on the pitch in the first half & very surprised when he was subbed off, very little threat going after he left the pitch

Both goals today were saveable by a keeper with good mobility. Our standards need to be higher if you want top-2. Mix in the Cardiff and WBA goals, and I question why Rodak doesn’t get a look.

I felt Betts was without fault today, the keeper is always easy to select as a scapegoat.

Can't fault him for either of the goals today, but as I overheard someone say on the way out, if you swapped the keepers today we'd have won 4-0

My criticism of him would be for his slow distribution especially in the first half. A quick ball out from defence would give us a great advantage. He really needs to distribute quickly as do the defence.

His distribution is painfully slow, and when you play the way we do, that is a problem.

I don’t like saying this, but that’s rubbish in fact it’s utter rubbish. It’s so rubbish it could be taken away by a refuse collector

First six 'passes' of the day were between Mawson and Bettinelli on the edge of our box.  Hardly inspires confidence.  Never heard of a warm up?

The Charlton keeper made a similar save moving across his goal to his right to deny BDR (and also Cairney on the header before Mitro's goal), but sure thing.
