Absolutely agree, he has already saved five certain goals, we would have conceded last season, brilliant keeper and one of us!

Yes. While it was an innovative move to try playing without a keeper for the 2019/20 season, I think Neilson's reversion to a more orthodox approach by actually having a goalie might just improve our chances.

That’s almost funny. But it’s still too soon!

No, Pereira is even worse than Jack. He had no chan e with any of those goals and made a couple of decent stops. Delighted he's not our keeper though.

Mmmm not wanting to dampen your humour but Robbie previously told us Jack Hamilton “was always going to be our number one this season”.

They should try that boy Marshall (?) in goal. Thought that was a decent save from the Boyce shot. 😁

JP's better with his feet and they're both equally as bad at stopping imo

I did not really want him back as I thought he was done but happy to admit I am 100% wrong and now remember how he is

You can sense the lack of panic in our defence knowing he is there, instead of the likes of what we’ve had over the last few seasons.

There was a time, even during the dark days of the 70s and early 80s, that we had excellent goalkeepers, with a couple or so exceptions. 
Just think.

 Cruickshank, Smith, Niemi, Gordon, Kello, to name just 5.

Wilson, Dunlop, Nelson, Pereira, Kurskis to name another 5.

If an empty crisp packet, caught by a breeze, blew across the pitch, it would be the closest thing you'd ever be likely to see to an authentic Joel Perreira tribute act!

The Boyce shot was close to going out for a throw-in though!

He's on loan at Huddersfield. On the bench for their last game i think.

I didn't really see a defence last night.  I saw guys at the back that were trying to start an attack.  Even Craig was moving the ball quickly and starting the process of going forward..  None of last years pedestrian two steps forward then back to the goalie. Great to have him back.

Changed his nickname from El Gato to El Gateaux because when he plays, the six yard box is desserted.

I just hope his missus does the washing up, otherwise his kitchen will look like a Greek dinner party every night.

I saw a Hearts keeper make a save last night at Tynecastle, it's been a long time since I've witnessed that.

Loved the way he continually threw the ball out to a teammate. Many of our attacks started with the big man. 

 

Superb goalie. We're lucky to have him.

Celtic would probably bite our hand off to have him back. He is the best keeper in Scotland still Imo

Definitely. Feel a lot better with him in goals and there is something thats just right about having the big man back. 

 

Really gutted he's 37 though. Heres hoping he can give us 3/4 seasons. Considering he lost 2 years of his career to injury, I'm keen to see if the adding them on at the end thing really is true. If Buffon can still be going into his 40s, then no reason Craig can't at our level.

Was thinking the same the other day mate. Modern day goalkeepers can and will play on a lot longer. Just hope the big mans legs hold up - if this happens no reason we can’t have 3-4 more seasons, and good seasons. 
 

Like u said, it just feels right 👍

I admire your loyalty to Jack Hamilton but Craig would have saved two of these without much fuss.
