How good was Kevin Pressman


Recommended Posts

Even managed to chase after two burglars who tried to rob his house and held them till the police arrived!

 

it might have been one but two sounds more impressive

Overall he was a very good keeper for Wednesday.

But I do think he let himself down a bit in his last couple of seasons with putting weight on and he always seemed to have problems with low shots to the corner you expected him to save and couldn't quite get there.

But do remember 2 or 3 games v Sheffield United were he was outstanding.

I idolised Pressman when I was a kid. What a servant he was! 

Stayed with us after relegation as well, when he clearly could have stayed playing in the Premiership....legend!

Remember him getting sent off in that Wolves game though pretty early on😄

Think it's still  a record at 13 seconds

Unlucky not to get a cap. Saved us many a time. From memory superb games at spurs, l*****ool and esp at home

to the pigs once.

Was my ex next door neighbor at Chesterfield. 
We became good friends. He used to come over to my house Friday evenings whilst his wife put kids to bed and for a chill before big games at home on the Saturday. 
Cracking bloke and went on many a night out with him and his wife into Sheffield. 
Once had a party at mine and he invited Jim Magilton over as well. Happy days. 
Thought his son Thomas might make a keeper as he had a small keeping set up in his back garden but seems not.

He'd be getting into the England squad these days, no question imo. 

 

Think he was a tad unlucky that we had a lot of very good keepers about when he was in his prime.

Only caught the back end of his career when I was a kid, but remember loving him and buying the keeper top because of him.

 

My mum loved him and used to tell me about him being called up for England B.

 

Miss goalkeepers like Pressman - massive and could plough their way through a corner and just pick the ball out of the air.

could beat at near post some time struggle to get down but very good

 

The flapper man Chris WOOD he was the terrible one with cross coming over him and look scarey
