The mistake could have dented his confidence but he handled everything that was put at him for the rest of the game

Agreed - he makes one mistake albeit it cost us a goal and the COF wants his head to roll and inferences he has been making mistakes all season. I would rather have Hall in goal in preference to some of the others we have had.

The highlights of the first game of the season made him seem a bit skittish, probably at fault for a goal there, and obviously at fault on the weekend, but keepers at this level will make some mistakes, its just about whether those mistakes are in an acceptable range.  Whilst not in the league of a HWR from last year, I can't say he strikes me as being a weak link, and I'd question if we could get significantly better, and given that I think I'd opt for stability at the back rather than chopping and changing even if he isn't absolute top drawer.

"at this level", sometimes we need to step back and realise that that's why they're playing in this league and not higher, I recall Jas Singh being very honest about that.

Good old Jaz who was also susceptible to the odd mad 5 mins I seem to recollect.

Great bloke and decent keeper.

Keepers make less mistakes than most outfield players - the problem is that their mistakes are amplified because they normally lead to goals.

You only have to look at our keeper on Saturday who, on 10 mins, slid out of the box with the ball in his hands, and then on 14 mins decided to not communicate at all with our defender, in turn allowing a Bristol Rovers player to nip in between them, take the ball and slot into an open goal.

Said keeper played 30 plus games for Reading in the Championship last season, and for 45 mins didn't look good enough for my u12s team.

Whilst that’s true, there’s also levels within this level and you have to wonder whether a keeper who wasn’t deemed good enough for mid table maestros Hereford is good enough for us if we really mean business. I don’t think he’s been awful, but in nearly every game I’ve watched there’s been a wayward kick, a botched clearance or a moment of madness that’s put us under unwanted pressure. That goal on Saturday was a total catastrophe and as King said if we go in 2-0 up at HT it could be a different second half.

It was the same for us Vs Southport, it's an easier team talk when you've got one back before half time

As still playing in goal granted for the WFA over 60’s for England I have to insert the goalkeeper’s Union here.
I was at Alfreton and his error was a shocker, However the first player to console him was Ben Morgan who hasn’t been without his faults this season.Brandon never put a foot wrong after that.Considering the clowns we’ve had in goal before excuse the pun a safe pair of hands.

Just seen that MC Harvey was at this game. I saw him at the end but didn't realise that it was him.
