Don't think anyone is saying he is the difference between where we are and the top 2. Don't think anyone is saying Dawson is doing a bad job either but we could be doing better with him - not a certainty but having a keeper with experience might help add more stability and organisation to a jittery defence. If there was a long-term plan not to play him - which seems to have been the case given how little the manager took the opportunity to look at him in pre-season - then we should have done a better job of moving him on. Given how tight the finances have been for some time, we shouldn't be in a position where we are paying the 3rd choice keeper probably one of the highest wages a goalkeeper is getting in this division.
Let's hope we keep our first league clean sheet of the season tonight.
