I know that nobody else cares about it apart from us, but that's 4 goals conceded in a week, and he wasn't exactly facing a ton of shots last night. He's practically guaranteed to concede at least one goal in every Ireland game he plays, and atm it's 2 goals per game. He only has Erling Haaland to face next month. Best of luck with that.  

Kelleher conceded less than that amount, in double the amount of gametime in this group. And yet bizarrely, there is still demands for Travers, the man who lost his last game 9-0, to get the nod ahead of him.

Kelleher should have saved Ukraine home goal, Bazunu should have saved 2nd goal last night, neither at fault for other goals. Two fine young keepers but both are fallible and can improve.

Oasis all day long.  I was on stage with them when they debuted on the Letterman Show back in 1995. "Live Forever" and all that.  I couldn't get over how tiny the pugnacious Gallagher brothers were in person.

I think the last 2 games (plus the Premier League game the last time) definitely planting a few seeds about is ability to be world class. Still very young and we've seen young goalkeepers make mistakes and still go on to be world class but I don't think it's a sure thing that It's Bazunu N.1 and Kelleher N.2 in the long term. Still a 50/50 one for me. Kelleher needs a move too though

Neither keeper is the finished product.  Both are still growing and evolving.  Anyone who claims to know which will ultimately wind up as our #1, is simply guessing at this point.

You're going to concede goals when your own players gift the opposition opportunities to score like Browne and Hourihane did in the past 2 games.

Kellher has played against:
  • Hungary 0-0 away draw (shared a clean sheet with Bazunu, 45 mins each)
  • Qatar 4-0 home win
  • Belgium 2-2 home draw
  • Lithuania 1-0 home win
  • Armenia 1-0 away defeat
  • Ukraine 0-1 home defeat
  • Scotland 3-0 home win
  • Ukraine 1-1 away draw
4 of them were friendlies. 1 clean sheet in competitive games.

Bazunu has played against Portugal x2, Serbia and Scotland. Kelleher has played against Ukraine x2, Belgium and Scotland.

Bazunu has faced attackers such as Ronaldo, Jota, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Mitrović, Vlahović, Tadić and McGinn.

Kelleher has faced attackers such as Yarmolenko, Murdyk, Batshuayi, McGinn and Che Adams.

Bazunu has faced better quality players overall. Belgium rotated heavily against us. Kelleher didn't have to experience Lukaku, Hazard, KDB, Trossard, etc.
