Afterwards, Rochdale boss Brian Barry-Murphy explained his decision to leave Bazunu out, with the Corkman clarifying that his omission wasn’t performance-related.

Bazunu played in last Friday’s 2-1 defeat to Portsmouth, which was his third outing in seven days. The Dubliner had just returned from international duty, having earned his first senior caps in Ireland’s games against Luxembourg and Qatar.

“I was very conscious of the fact that for a few weeks I’ve been desperate to give Gavin a breather,” Barry-Murphy told Rochdale AFC’s official website.

“He didn’t get the international break and he’s had a very intense block of games – and there’s an amount travelling involved too. It’s been on my mind for a while and, if I’m being honest, Friday at Portsmouth was where I was seriously considering it, but I asked him to go again.”

Do goalkeepers need to be rested? Really?

I would say yes, 19 year old keepers anyway. More for mental than physical reasons though. As a keeper you have to follow every single play in the game, often from 80+ yards away when the ball is up the other end of the field, because it just takes one long punt downfield and you have a split second decision to make whether to leave your box to try to intercept it or stay put. 

Good keepers are constantly organising their defence as well, making sure there is cover if a full back bombs forward etc. I watched Given do this kind of thing a lot for Ireland back in the Croke Park years because my tickets were always in the same place at the edge of the Hill 16 penalty area. He was excellent at a lot of things you'd never normally notice during a game. There's a lot more to keeping than just saving shots, coming for crosses and playing out from the back.

His mind needs a rest from 90mins a week?... no way, you can play your first team goalkeeper every game for 10 seasons without a rest. If anything it keeps the mind sharp.

They kept a clean sheet last week hence naturally he was kept on the bench. 

He’s at the tail end of the season so job done he’s got his 30 plus games his experience etc. He’s a seriously lucky boy that’s the case and getting put on the bench might actually be no harm in waking him up to his mistake against Portsmouth. It was crazy.

It was a bit sloppy, not crazy. 
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Getting 30 odd games at his stage of his career isn't too bad. Be nice to see him go out on loan to a Championship team next season

Il meet you halfway so. It was definitely worse then a bit sloppy. If he was closed down under pressure fair enough but he was under none it was casual. While Portsmouth did have work to do to score after it was costly. 

I have huge time for Bazunu don’t get me wrong and his job is done as regards he’s got his game time/experience. It actually might be no harm for him to see the consequence of a mistake like that either. A harsh learning curve for him.

The overreaction and hyperbole is part of what makes football hard to follow now. A young goalkeeper makes a mistake and it has to be 'crazy' and discussed for weeks.

Not sure he'll get a Championship loan next season. League 1 again, although maybe a better League 1 team, or Eredivisie might be options. City have a link up with an Eredivisie club - Breda I think.

Kelleher was supposed to move to an Eredivisie team on loan at the start of the season but it fell through at the last moment.

How is it an overreaction. The manager has put him on the bench for this essentially has he overreacting too?? 

I am saying it’s really not a major concern long term as he’s his game time and experience got anyways.

Where do you think he will end up next season while we are on the subject? I’d be quite happy to see him back at another League 1 club. He’s no rush a while.

Kelleher was meant to move indeed only for Alisson getting injured. Lijnder Klopp Dutch assistant had his finger prints all over that.

You seem quite sure he won't move on a level in club football. Why is that? Why don't you think he'll get a Championship move? Please elaborate using facts and maybe the odd opinion here and there to support this assertion.
