    Thank you for confirming my suspicions! Mainstand plucking numbers out of thin air.

    I always think it's interesting the way goalkeepers are treated differently ... pretty much every other player in our squad has been in and out of the team this season and no one really raises an eyebrow when it happens, but if Parish was to come in for Clark for a few games it would be seen as a massive statement. Personally I thought Parish looked OK when he played at the start of the season, and given Clark's ropey form I wouldn't object to seeing Parish given some more game time. Doesn't have to mean Clark's Saints career is over forever. Just means Clark's getting a break and someone else is getting to show what they can do. It happened with Mannus when Clark came in for a spell, and didn't seem to do him any harm.
    As it stands I think probably CD is in a situation where he has two goalkeepers under contract, doesn't feel his budget will allow him to go out and get a new one (or, at least, not a new one that is any better than he already has), and has maybe just decided that the only choice he has at the moment is to stick with Clark, try to work with him and avoid denting his confidence, and hope his form will pick up again.
    I actually thought Clark had a good game on Saturday, albeit without having a huge amount to do.

    So it's ok to say........ statistically he's performing poorly.

    Yes and half of them listened to stats and bull provided by some that used information to suit their arguements. So thanks Nigel

    I was diagnosed with high blood pressure recently, and I have no doubt that it has mainly been caused by reading posts from Cagey and mainstand on We Are Perth. If they could inform me that it's purely satirical (even if that's untrue), it would be the kindest thing to do for the sake of my health.

    This is what gets me. Folk can argue with the stats (and these aren't advanced metrics, they are very simple: basically shots on target minus goals conceded) but are they not watching the guy? 
    It annoys me that people are saying he's a hate figure or whatever. For a long time, people have kept quiet and backed him, keeping reservations to themselves. But this is 18 months now of poor form, eventually the patience is going to break. 
    Saying we shouldn't criticise him until the summer because he's here until then whatever is fair enough I suppose but trying to claim he's not playing poorly, I just find that bizarre from anyone that actually watches a lot of the team in action.

    Joe lewis looked shite today....but can't drop him below zander as it doesn't fit the stat rhetoric.

    R.B.B:- Adz reacted to Cleveland-Saint in Zander   
    No stats on defenders, midfielders, miscues, crosses defended, weather, missed chances, striker shots on target vs attempts, missed sitters, poor marking, angle and power of shot, swerve of ball, 'should have shot' instead of pass, sun glare .... ya di da
    Just this 'indisputable' stat on goalies, but not any other factors that create the overall team / player performance that impacts keeper performance and confidence in their back line. 
    Our own manager, who spends hours upon hours with Zander, says he's the guy, so should CD be fired for being so stupid as he can't read these stats and not switch him? If Zander had the best stats in the league, but two terrible games on the trot, with dozens of errors, and same in practice, would stats matter to the manager or any of us? 
    Players confidence is crucial ... great boost all round today...so lets keep witch hunting Zander, who looked confident and didn't put a foot wrong.

    Clark is a keeper who has went through a bad patch to say he is a poor keeper is about as daft a statement as you have made ina long time and there have been a few.

    Surely you’ve noticed how much of a better side we are at the moment when Liam Craig starts.
    We need leaders at the moment. Guys who have been through this before and guys willing to grab others by the scruff of the neck.

    Shankland himself has stated that he noticed Zander had been too far off his line earlier in the game and knew it was worth trying due to Zander’s choice of positioning.

    I agree we need a new keeper , even if. It is for competition.Zander is turning into a bomb scare.Saves very few and when he does do his job we all think he’s a world beater .

    These criticisms of the Shanksinator are grossly unfair. I’m with the Wee Man on this. He’s got a whopping 5 goals in 33 top league games now ON TOP OF all those goals against Alloa and Queen of the South etc. And he has created literally THOUSANDS OF SQUARE MILES OF SPACE along the way. If that’s not multi-million pound transfer form then I don’t know what is, frankly. HUGE offers will arrive soon. Any day now. Just coming. Won’t be long.
