    Wow. I knew Frei was foreign, so just assumed he was cap-tied somewhere.

    I was just making a hilarious joke saying he should know the intricacies of the Belgian league.

    it landed, as usual.

    Got him listed as 13 on the City site.

    Is there a significance to 13 for GKs?

    Courtois wore it at Atletico, Chelsea and last season before switching to 1 this season.

    Oblak wears it.

    Oh SHIT. Steffen = Rooins. Turner = GOAT. This guy proves it with science. I’m sure no brains GGG will still run out that subpar PL keeper next friendly though. What a dolt.

    I remember I always thought it was weird during the Horvath/Steffen debate a couple years ago that many considered Steffen the more athletic shot stopper and Horvath the more polished/less mistake prone keeper when in reality it was the other way around.

    Steffen had a pretty solid game yesterday so he may prove me wrong, but the way I’ve felt about him for a while is that he’ll likely go as far as the team around him takes him with the MNT. He’ll never steal a game for us, and he wont “lose” many for us. I don’t dislike him as the option, but I do hope at some point soon someone overtakes him.

    I actually thought you were serious lol but I stand by my post.

    I value analytics in sports and Steffen’s numbers are what they are in the shot stopping department. As someone pointed out on twitter, Pep favoring a keeper that isn’t great in that area wouldn’t be anything new. He did look good in distribution yesterday, though.

    He did fairly well but they were a complete disaster.

    I didn’t think there was much he could’ve done on that goal yesterday but his distribution was really good.

    Statistically, his goals allowed above average was positive. (He gave up more goals than an average keeper would based on the number of shots faced and where they came from)

    -For whatever that’s worth to people. I understand I’m probably in the minority in my opinion, though.
