i think ricky should, give him a chance and he will prove to be a soild keeper for the club. i was watching the warm up and to be honest glens services to ricky was really poor its got to be hard to play with out having a good warm up

both good keepers haven't seen to much of johnson since he has returned and didn't have alot to do today so difficult to choose but i would tend to favour towards wisemen has looked realy good between the sticks in the friendlys

wiseman has looked ok but not as good as he can by a long way, but spoke to him after the game today and he is very disapointed about his current form in pre-season he said his kicking has been poor and he just feels slow.

I'm glad Ricky aknowledges that his kicking is poor at present. Glen Johnson slightly edges it for me at the moment because of that, and because I feel Johnson is currently quicker off his line.

Would probably say Ricky. Give him time and he will improve.

i think both keepers are the same the more games they play the better they will be, rick has played more games and looks more relaxed then glen, as you say glens kicking is better but then as much as ricks kick have been bad not 1 of them have been kicked and left us in hot water. 1 thing that i really like about rick is his throw ive not seen 1 like it before ding dang do.......

Both have got good ability but i feel they lack presence..

I would say wiseman is the better keeper but only just..

I feel both would benefit from having a experinced number 1 to learn from..

Just my view..

For me Glen is better all round at the moment but I think once Ricky has a few games under his belt he will be the one to take it over.
At the moment his kicking has been poor and his throws are good but sometimes a little too quick. He also needs to be more vocal which will only come once he is comfortable with his defence.
Having not seen much of Glen this year I can only go on past reserve matches I have seen. His shot stopping is good, kicks well and is loud but not the best dealing with crosses.
They are both young and very promosing indeed so I just hope we can keep them both for a few years to come and get the best from both.

im going to disagree here matt i think ricky has look good coming off his line and has made a few good saves where he has came off his line and saved down low. for example he made 4 in the billericay game

Yeah Ricky played well but Glen is a decent keeper and I'm sure will do really well when given the chance.

A great performance with three quality saves, a couple of distribution errors and a few worrying moments when dealing with back passes!!

Not wanting to be negative after a fantastic game, I think the thread still has time to run!!!

Glen has picked up a groin injury and therefore didn't feature in the squad tonight. Shame, as the enthusiasm he has to play for the club is overwhelming. Still, he would be the first to say how well Ricky played tonight, top draw!

im surprised how well you lot thought the keeper played tonight. made a couple of decent saves, most noteably the save from gary hooper when he tipped over, but i thought he looked shakey on corners and kicking was unpredictable.

think obviously he will no doubt be a great non league keeper as he is so young and already playing at a high level, just surprised how well everyone thought he played last night.

looks like i left too early as i missed the goal <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

4 bad kicks and one missed cross and were only half way into pre season by the time the league kicks off he will be at the top of his game
