“Genuine question. How long do we continue to “protect” Meslier before we just consider him as one for the future and get a proven keeper in?”

“Meslier could have done better with the penalty and he was lost for the second”
“Embarrassing from Meslier on that corner. Joke.”
“Meslier is not good enough when will people see”
“I can’t wait for the day Meslier learns how to catch a ball”
“Meslier needs to command his box. Was stuttering on the line for that”

With talk that he could potentially end up moving to a bigger club, hopefully there aren’t too many of these games on the horizon or that could be in jeopardy.
