Wanderers Ways. Neil Thompson 1961-2021

Last minute Trafford


Recommended Posts

He's had an amazing season. Did he have 26 clean sheets for us and 6 in the euros? Mental. 

We'll be the same as Preston is to Beckham in a few years time. 

Regardless of that it can only be a good thing for England that we've got a keeper with a season and half of first team men's football, a Wembley win and a euro winners medal at the age of 20.

Just hope he gets game time at Burnley.

The 3rd finsh attempt by the Spanish is poor too, but that doesn't detract from the great keeping.

None at all. Hes won them the cup. Fantastic.

Shouldn't have had to make the 2nd save if yon fella gets in first.

My mate sent me a screen shot of that earlier (I don't do twitter). I was already so pleased for the lad, as we all obviously are, but that had me bursting with pride. Love it!

Let's hope he takes the time to say it shortly after winning the world cup in 2026 😁

for me, it was the recovery to make the spread on the second save that showed his athleticism and his mentality.

the pen was poor, and predictable. the first step back after placing the ball will give an indication of where he his headed (based upon his feet). the slow skip in the run tells you he isnt going for power, and he'll likely wait for you to move.

two keepers in this house absolute buzzing with him

not all heroes wear capes... some of us don gloves

Everyone is entitled to their opinions, which may even prove right in time. But it is pretty funny how things have gone for the 'Traff is overrated and no better than Accrington's keeper' brigade. £19m transfer to a Premier League club, six clean sheets and a last minute penalty save to win England U-21s a championship.

In the mud, as the kids would say.
