Fabianski looks to be out for about 3 months apparently. No idea who their back up keeper is
..
"Safe hands"
.
Spaniard Roberto, signed from Espanyol in the summer, conceded four times in the embarrassing midweek Carabao Cup loss at Sky Bet League One Oxford and endured some shaky moments on the south coast, particularly with his kicking.

Chilean coach Pellegrini insists he has no concerns about the capabilities of the well-travelled former Benfica, Olympiacos and Malaga keeper.

“Roberto is a great goalkeeper. He has a brilliant career in a lot of different countries,” said Pellegrini.

“I know him a lot, that’s why he came here.

“Now he has the chances because (before) it was difficult for him to play because of the performances Lukasz was having in every game.

“But I trust him a lot and I’m sure he will replace Lukasz in the way he knows how to do it"

Didn't they also sign the son of one of their ex-players in the summer?

Edit - David Martin, son of Alvin. Signed on a free from Millwall. It looks like he was at MK Dons with Dele.

Yes, and I think David Martin was with us as a Yoof, but as an outfield player!

You may recall that David Gold has had some unfortunate issues concerning his players on Twitter.

There was that time he failed to recognise a picture of Michail Antonio and retweeted his picture as a plea to find a missing person.

More embarrassingly, there was the time he welcomed the signing of Pedro Obiang with a picture of Angelo Ogbonna. :cautious:

Now there's not much he can do about the first. He's always being asked to retweet random stuff and he's bound to let the odd mistake through, although the number of times it's involved that guy from the Inbetweeners is slightly concerning.

But how to avoid the second issue?

Well, clever old David has found a way. He only tweets photos of his players holding up their shirts now. So, today, on the occasion of Ryan Fredericks' 27th birthday, and yes that made me feel old too, he tweeted his congratulations and successfully posted a picture of the right player. Well done, David. No fuck-ups for you, today.

Well, apart from linking to the Ryan Fredericks who tweets bible verses in Arizona rather than the Ryan Fredericks who plays for West Ham. But, that apart, well done. nwn.

It’s funny, and it’s West Ham so fuck ‘em, but somehow I’ve developed a soft spot for the ignorant porn-peddler. I think he tries to do the right thing, it’s just that he’s not very good at it.

Of the two he’s miles more likeable and apparently he’s a much nicer bloke than the little goblin looking thing that had Brady as a side piece for years

He's a bit like GW Bush for me - I get the feeling I'm supposed to hate him and think he's a bad guy, but every time I see him interacting with the world, I can't helo but see him as a bit of an Of Mice And Men 'Lenny' character.
Gold is obviously not very smart at all, but comes across as well meaning and good hearted

That’s a good comparison. GW was a pawn in a game of incredible evil, but he’s probably a nice enough guy if you met him down the pub.

There’s been a few tweets from Gold where I just think ‘aw, mate...’. He’s definitely the good guy in comparison to Sullivan and Brady.
