So many fans believe that we are after another keeper as they believe kirkland will be sold. Reading the star this morning that does'nt seem to be the case it appears that adam davies has had a op and jameson has just returned so back up is short looking like dawson could be on the bench saturday maybe we will have another keeper in by then guess time will tell

been struggling to make sense of this one but is kirkrlands contract up end of season ? if so could a fee  in January or nowt end of season ?

Hull reported as wanting him previouslyand possibly Palace spring to mind as suitors

 

Butland wants games and will see none at stoke behind begovic and sorensen  

 

so kirkland gets wrapped in 'cotton wool' till january sales and Butland gets game time

 

situation to be reviewed in January ?

We wouldn't get much for Kirkland in January anyway as he enters the last six months of his contract. Resting him would be pointless - as would Stoke loaning us Butland be.

have now come to thinking this ones being overcomplicated - we do need another keeper coz of injury to davies  etc and maybe do rtegardless  

 

so why wouldnt you go for best you can get ? only other club in for butland mentioned so far is ...yeovil ...where he will play every week no doubt but where would you choose to go and where would stoke want him to go? also cant see stoke being so desperate to hold out on his wages as say soton are for Sharp's

 

Providing it dont mean compromising too much on our other targets - why not ? ( ie if a midfielder and a sharp/lita were done deals who would complain at having butland ) and this may well be why nothing has happened yet

His opportunities may be being 1st choice at yeovil, 1st/2nd at wednesday, 3rd at stoke

Totally agree  fresh owl ,only goalkeeper im interested in signing is Kirkland on a 3 year deal,would be madness to just let his deal run out.

Did we have an option on a 3rd year?  I'm sure I read that somewhere (probably on here!).

 

I don't think anyone doubts the wisdom of getting an extra keeper in.  That keeper being Butland would be an odd choice on his and Stoke's part if he was only going to sit on the bench as Kirkland's backup.

If Butland comes then Stoke will insist he plays and he is only coming to give himself half a chance on geeting on the plane to Brazil.

Unless Kirkland is carrying an injury make him play with young Dawson on the bench.

Kirkland is an excellent shot stopper but wont come for a ball so there wont be a queue of PL teams waiting to offer him a Xmas present especially with his injury history.
