He hasn't been outright bad, but he hasn't had an impressive start either. The season has only just begun, and he's barely had a chance to play. I get the impression that he's a convenient scapegoat when the team, and the defense in particular, doesn't play up to expectations. His poor footwork is nothing new, but he has shown in the past that he has other qualities that are rightfully, highly rated, and those aren't going to disappear over night. I'd be more worried if we had conceded these many goals on a night where the opposing team wasn't steamrolling us.

Not at fault for any of the goals. Why cant Hala and D.O.C blame Ramos and Marcelo? Both were the biggest culprits in Madrid's loss today

Listen Chelsea, I understand. I do. We sold you the biggest fraudulent forward in a long time in Morata and you sold us a slightly taller version of Cudicini. Let's write this off and give each other back the players and start from scratch.

Morata has just started scoring again.

We'll swap if he stops again Wink

I can only recall one solid performance so far. It was against Atlético Madrid where he made a series of vital saves and was amazing throughout. Other than that, he has been pretty average (and I'm being nice).

But I maintain that the GK position should be the least of Madrid's worries.

Courtois has been good for us, he was amazing in the derby, killed two 1v1 chances from Atletico which should have been goals.

People looking for someone to blame, he is certainly not at fault here lol

Navas has been better Nick... he's a better shot stopper than Courtois.  His problem was ball at his feet and handling balls coming into the box...  Courtois is no better honestly.  He sticks too close to the goalline and is downright clumsy handling the ball with his feet.

Certainly not an upgrade so far.  So far, a downgrade.

I never understood the fascination with replacing Navas who has always been quite good. BUT, given Navas' age and the price of keepers, getting Courtois for 35 mil is a steal and it should help us long run when Navas invariably slows down.

I think we should just give the job to Courtois and be done with it. This rotating keepers has never worked. It might be a reason for the hesitancy in Courtois.

They've only been rotating for a month. I agree that the goalkeeper position wasn't a high priority, but like you say, we got him for cheap and it will likely benefit us in the long run. Despite Courtois' well documented, poor footwork, I don't think he's been featured enough to warrant the harsh criticism he's already receiving on here.

I'm going to agree courtois will be beneficial in the long run for that price, but he is not a massive upgrade and as hypelords make him out to be no surprise really, tbh I liked Navas better he is quick and agile makes courtois look like a tall clumsy old man, I feel he will improve eventually once he settles.
