Shay Given looking to join a championship club to extend his career at the age of 41
Not saying we are even interested but surly his experience would make it worth trying for him?

At 41, I'd say he's too old now, and would rather see one of our many goalkeepers given a go. I also have to say you can see the progress Smith is making each game, so would be happy to stick with him. It's the four people in front of Smith that are causing us problems!

A quiet, 'stay at home' goalkeeper is 50% of the problem with any defence.

A keeper that gives a defence direction and confidence is worth their weight in gold.

For example, as goalkeepers Paul Smith and Lee Camp were of similar ability but as soon as Camp came in, Morgan and Wilson actually started to look like defenders! No coincidence!! (I'm not saying I've have Campy back though)

My moneys been on Given since the window closed if Smithy gets the wobbles over the next few weeks.

However he does seem to be stepping up to the plate and if we can get our best defenders on the pitch the goals against will reduce.

Main priority is a new centre back and to sort out the right back/midfield berths as the current combos do not work.

I think we would be a much more solid team with Lichaj and Ward playing on the right?

I'm with Trickster on this hence the post
Smith has stepped up but too quiet for me
He needs to be vocal and rollock the back 4
