Trap calls him up , gets him involved in and around the international squad then decides to come out with this??!! What is up with some people Confused

The whole interview's confusing. One minute he wants to play for the US and the next he wants to make his mark early in the season to be called up for the Croatia match. Dont think he has any hope in hell of getting called up by the Yanks in any case.

If all are fit anyway it'll be Westwood, Given and Forde ahead of him in the pecking order.

Fair enough if he was over-looked time and time again go declare for America , but the fact Trap has shown some faith in him by calling up (gk injury crisis aside) and goes out talking sh*te to the media!! Not very professional imo Thumbs Down
 
USA qualify for every World Cup , yes Darren the USA has a population of over 300million people and are coming up against mighty sides like El Salvador , Panama , Jamaica etc etc in qualifing!!
 
Hope Trap doesnt read that he wont pick Andy Reid for less LOL

That interview makes no sense. Basically his dad never said play for America, so while he's not confirming that he'd play he's not ruling it out? But he's determined to have a good start to the season because of the upcoming Irish games? Good man Darren.

 All the above goalkeepers are over 26 years old, we seem to have a shortage of goalkeeper under 26 years old. It may be a problem down the road, the only keepers on note under 25 are Randolph and Stephen Henderson.

If you must know the source of that was ex Celtic goalkeeper Stuart Kerr. If he's going to be a Number 1 at Birmingham, he's certainly on in or around 15k a week. Perhaps he didn't fancy playing second fiddle to Forster. Now take your smiley faces over to your Rangers thread like a good chap

And again whats funny? The wankfest thats over Forster could easily have seen him move to England for a decent sum of money. Transfer fee received, goalkeeper in need, goalkeeper available, offer a good deal to sway away from potential suitors (Birmingham) and there's your figure. Not that hard to fathom really.

Lee Clark praises Darren Randolph's 'man-of-the-match' performance

Lee Clark praised goalkeeper Darren Randolph for his man-of-the-match display as Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy bemoaned his side’s continued bad luck.

The Irish stopper made a series of saves to earn Blues a share of the spoils after Chris Burke had cancelled out Christophe Berra’s opener.

McCarthy said that Blues had used their ‘get out of jail free card’ as they salvaged a point.

And Clark was quick to praise his in-form stopper, although he insisted the rest of the team deserved credit, too. “Darren has made some good saves,” said Clark.

“He’s continued his impressive start to his time at the club.

“What we like about him is the whole package. It’s not just his saves, it’s the way he comes for crosses, his distribution and set-plays. I think he has shown everyone that he’s a first class acquisition.

“We knew about him before his arrival.

“What impressed me was when we had a meeting, the way he talked, his ambition personally and what he wanted to achieve.

“It’s not just his goalkeeping, it’s his personality, how he’s a driven young man, and now we’re absolutely delighted with him.

“We’re a bit frustrated as a group though.

“In the first half we were too negative.

“At least in the second half they were true to themselves as individuals.

“In the first half Darren had more touches than any player in my team because we went back to him too often.

“But we improved after the break.”

McCarthy said his side did enough to win three matches and admitted the result felt like a loss.

“I thought we were excellent and we deserved to win," he said.

“You talk about bad luck, but that was bad luck, no doubt about it.

“We came up against a goalkeeper who was in very good form.

“They’ve had their get out of jail free card.

“I hope we get a slice of it at some stage.

“I feel like we have been beaten.

“We did enough to win three games.

“I thought we were excellent.”

Forde is only a short term answer. Although as a LOI fan I'm delighted to see him get his chance and he  has not let us down. Randolph is playing well for Birmingham and despite today's error I would have him a head of Westwood. I cant  see what Colin Doyle is doing still at Birmingham surely he could get a loan spell some where and get some match time. Maybe he is like Harper who stayed years at Newcastle?

Would he displace Gordon tho? Unlikely.

If it was a year ago it would have been a good move, with Forster destined to move on but not so sure now.

He does need a move away from Birmingham tho, cant be doing him any good fighting for relegation every season.

Hard to know with this one. Don't think Birmingham are going anywhere as a club, but at least he was playing every week. Adrian is a good keeper for WHU, he would be doing very well to displace him, but then again, Adrian could get injured or suspended early in the season, and he might get his chance. Even if he starts as sub-keeper, he will get a run in the cups & possibly the early Europa league qualifiers at least. 

Good luck to the fella anyway, f**k knows we could do with competition for our near geriatric No. 1 and our slightly younger league 1 back up.

I would agree with that. Randolph is a very decent keeper and Adrian is being over rated. I am sure Randolph isn't go there to be number 2. Probably should be second choice for us.

No chance they will go down especially as they are out of this, only 1 player who will be a starter was in the squad last night. On the plus side Josh Cullen played and was easily the best

Yes, getting beaten is a sure sign they will stay up and then qualify this by saying it is the reserves that were beaten! Were the beaten the west ham way though? As I said elsewhere, have 20 on them at 7s to go down. I do not think they will be aslong as 7/1 again this season, will probably be in to fives on Monday! You can blame the fatigue your reserves suffered on their 2 and a half hour flight

Nope Arsenal will prob beat us regardless of what team played last night sure if you were that sure they go down you should lump more than €20 on . That was mostly the development squad . If they buy a decent striker they be in top 10 . Only thing I don't understand is the best they can hope for is Europa league but they obviously don't want that. They should've played a better team and tried to get in to the group stages and then tried to use 2nd team at times.

Bizarre attitude. You need more than a striker in my opinion and if I could afford to put more than 20 down, believe me I would, even thoughI don't think it is a certainty, there are loads of terrible teams in the league,they are certainly closer to the bottom than tenth

Not a chance in hell that West Ham team will be getting relegated going on todays showing. They've Jenkinson, O'Brien, Valencia and Carroll to come back from injury too. Should be comfortably mid-table bar an implosion.

you just highlighted one of their main problems, a lack of strength in depth

The last time he played Bournemouth he let in 8 goals. Up to himself to take his chance today.

Randolph was really badly let down by his defenders imo. He conceded four but he hadn't a hope with any of them and actually made a few decent stops. No matter how well he plays over the next couple of games though it seems extremely unlikely he'll be able to force himself into the team at the expense of Adrian.

The fact WHU are trying to sign Rob Green, I don't think they consider Randolph to be even 2nd choice.

He'd already fallen out of favour with the fans because of his performances in Europe, whether it was his fault or not conceding 4 is unlikely to win back many fans.

Clean sheet today away to Liverpool & West Hams best player last week to Bournemouth. Seems like he has a chance of keeping the No.1 spot for the time being anyway

Liverpool had one shot on target, a hopeful long range effort from Lovren.

Nevertheless Forde has been dropped by Millwall, Westwood is injured and Given is back on the bench and retiring after this campaign, so his chances of surviving the cut are decent and he could at least cement himself as #2 in the future.

Stephen Henderson is talented but he can't seem to keep himself fit. Joe Murphy seemed to be on his way out of Huddersfield this summer but has started every game so far in this campaign. They could be wildcards for the next campaign.

I've come to the conclusion that you are the biggest spoofer on this forum, who constantly talks rubbish and without a shred of evidence.

So you are either Rainpaulo or TNC, actually you are RainPaulo.

Liverpool had 7 shots on target one of them from Firminho whose shot hit the bar.

It doesn't take a genius to do a quick google as research to back up your point.

A bit like your posts about Long's scoring record which you tried to pass off as fact.

According to BBC and Sky Sports he saved one shot.

I wasn't making a judgement on his ability. I was just pointing out a fact.

He has imposed himself well and if he plays in the next game like he has in the previous two he is doing himself favours but he is unlikely to oust Adrian on the basis of what happened in that game.

2 shots according to livescore, only remember Lovren's effort.

Didn't have much to do in fairness.

Newcastle had 65% possession throughout the whole game but they did nothing with it! 
Good saves from shots by Janmaat but I think when your right back is leading the attack it's not a great game.

Its a joke how Randolph only has 2 caps, O'Neill has gone down a pretty similar route to Trap in regard to not giving him a chance.
I really cannot understand why our current and past management teams don't do all they can do give our back up keepers more exposure in games.

Dropped as Adrian returns from suspensions.

Adrian having a world class game aswell, it's no surprise Randolph was never going to be regarded as #1 at WHU.

It's like (obviously to a much lesser extent) the way i cant understand why someone like Begovic would go to Chelsea. If you're good enough to play regular football elsewhere why go somewhere you know you'll be a deputy? Adrián is one of the best keepers in the league. Randolph could easily be a starting Championship keeper. I doubt hes getting paid such a great deal more?
