I wouldn't say its a mistake by Dixon, he couldn't realistically reach it, but that's the problem, he just doesn't look big enough to be a keeper, its not like he makes up for it with amazing agility.  Being tall and average has to be a better bet than being relatively small and average surely.  A taller keeper surely gets his finger tips to that.

Wiki has him at six four.. thats surely wrong?

Crap keeper that keeps saving pens.

He may not be the best, but if teams get enough balls into dangerous areas, then eventually they will score.

Just ask de Gea.

The crap keeper we had from fleetwood saved pens more than once in games . You  just have to look at anything coming into the box Dixon struggles .
He is good with is feet which evatt likes and  probably why we signed him but over all he isn’t good enough in my opinion

Eh?!  If anyone has a team picture (do they still do them?) he should be towering above a few of the others in that case.

He was stood next to Santos and aimson at one point today and commentator said Santos was 6ft 6 and the other two didn’t look much smaller . I was thinking if Santos had shrunk

If that was the case we would surely have scored against 2 or 3 of Sunderland, Sheff Wed, Burton, Pompey, Cambridge, Wycombe, Rotherham.  Fine margins, if we'd swapped keepers would any of those results have been different?  Not having a dig at either you or Dixon BTW, just asking the question, as our pressure doesn't always seem to result in a goal, but the opposition's pressure invariably means we concede.

6ft 4 according to wiki! Think theyve got their measurements wrong!

The header was a fluke, Vokes got above Baps and just directed it goal wards hoping for the best  and it dropped in the top corner.

I don't rate Dixon but very little he could do, the work needs to come in stopping the cross and I think it's seriously worrying that's not been drilled into them given how many goals weve conceded from crosses.

I would have liked to see them busting a gut to prevent the issue at the source.

I dont agree regards Dixon. If your coming for the ball, show some conviction, if you decide not to, stay back near your line, not in  no/mans land!

Maybe, will watch it again, still think it was a fluke mind, luck were having at the mo

John miles off the pace and let’s in an easy cross; their player uses Baps shoulders and it should have been a foul. Fluky header into top corner with Dixon in no mans space.

Evatt has been getting more than you’d think reasonable out of a squad full of free transfers and rejects.

It was always going to reach a point where the strain of what he’s got to choose from showed.

We need a few results and quite honestly some more luck with injuries. The worst result today wasn’t the 1-0, it’s the loss of MJ.

Down but nowhere near out right now.

People pinning all this on Evatt are benders, but it’s up to them.
