Always been a good keeper. More than good enough for this level.

Kicking is a bit poo sometimes but he's getting better all the time.

Good to see him going well after some harsh criticism last season.

5 games 3 clean sheets. Growing in confidence and stature every game. New defensive line up in front today and never once looked in trouble.

Well done Cam, keep the doubters quiet for at least another week. 
 

Let’s be honest he won’t get an easier 95 mins all season

I really want him to be brilliant but I'm never totally confident that he will dominate his 6 yard box

This, for a keeper, he can be very indecisive, still don’t think he’s good enough, time will tell.

I’ve been pressed that recently he’s started looking to full backs for a short pass or throw out to them rather than his aimless long balls to no one earlier in season. 
 

His distribution isn’t the strongest, nor is our aerial threat up top, so great to see us retain possession when the simple short ball is on.

I think his commanding of the box is much better than it was under Jos. He catches it now rather than flapping at it. 
 

I think it’s all chicken and egg really as things like that and the errors are only eradicated through experience and we didn’t give him much time out on loan. So he’s at the point where he needs to play if he’s going to stay here and we will persevere. 
 

If there wasn’t a wider issue it would still make sense to have one of Dawson or Wildsmith out on loan playing each week whilst the other was no1 working with an older keeper like Westwood or similar. Sunderland were desperate for a keeper and as a big club chasing promotion I thought that would’ve been ideal for one of them.

I think we need to look towards Darrell Flavahan.

Since he has taken over the senior GKs they look better at the simple things.

 

This isn't a dig at Weaver, but maybe he is better suited to the youth set up.

Still don't think he's good enough!

 

Seems to pull of good saves but let's some easier ones in!

 

Problem is we've been spoiled by really good goalkeepers down the years.

 

Carson

Grant

Kirkland

Westwood

 

Even Weaver and Bywater were pretty good!

Were it not for terrible finishing and some great defending by Joost, he was rooted to his line more than once. I'm not at all confident with him personally, but clean sheets means no shag as they say.

His clean sheet yesterday was more down to his defense, some poor finishing and Van Aken's block. He still looks indecisive and his positioning is suspect. However, his distribution although still waywards with his kicking is much improved with his early release awareness. Give him some time but continue the search for a top class bargain.

Seems to have worked on his quick distribution too 

 

I used to age 10 years between him receiving the ball for a goal kick, and him actually starting the game again

This.

 

Wonder if this has been coached into him as he used to do the Westwood thing off hang onto the ball for ages.
