Played his first PL game for newcastle today. Got an assist and made a few decent saves. anybody know much about him? Wiki says he's former under 19 international. this true? How does he qualify?

No, it says he will be called for the squad for the England game. 

Haven't seen him, but think it shows the management are not convinced by Forde, having seemingly already lost faith in Westwood for no apparent reason.

Yep, meant to say the summer friendlies squads...
Can't do us any harm to have another 'keeper at this level.
Looks like he's leaped ahead of Bunn too.

Bunn is worse than Forde and Forde looked dodgy in the loi. Hope this kid is the sh*t as we need someone and quick

Isn't up to it to be honest. Got a worldy of a move to Newcastle from Charlton but that was strictly as a backup. No chance he will ever challenge Krul. 

If Westwood is out of the picture, we are seriously struggling in the goalkeeping department

Elliott played very well on Sunday . His kicking and throwing out were impressive .

Westwood is the best of what we have at moment . Forde is very poor and not an international keeper .

Have to agree with everyone, still think Westwood as the best of an average bunch

To be fair I think a few of the sex shops on Capel Street are probably better.

Can't see why we shouldn't explore every avenue, Bunn is due a call up to imo! No need what's happening with Ryan Meara, he was supposed to be in Carlow over Christmas but i don't think he came over in the end. I'll ask my mate to see if he can give him an answer on whether he want's to play for us or America.

I don't think Bunn is a bad option in fairness. I'd prefer have a keeper who is (currently) playing week in-week out in the top flight than anyone else.

Technically, I think Westwood is the best option we have but he's not playing and is miles behind Mingolet (who by the way is a top, top keeper).

Just done a bit of trainspotting on 3rd and 4th tier European nation's goalkeepers to see where they are playing.

Lithuania: 1st choice for Gaizantespor - Top league in Turkey
Latvia: 1st choice for FC Sion - Top league in Switzerland
Albania: 1st choice for Chievo (on loan from Palermo) - Top league in Italy
Bulgaria: 1st choice for FC Twente - Top league in Holland
Slovenia: 1st choice for Inter Milan - Top league in Italy

The worrying thing is that we've nobody coming through as such and we haven't got many young keepers at big English clubs. That's just my take though
