Title: Robin Olsen
Post by: bigdunc9 on October 06, 2020, 02:24:27 PM
Anyone seen this guy play? I have watched his YouTube reel but every keeper looks amazing when you see there best saves.
I wonder if he's been bought in for 1st choice? What's going to happen to lossl , thought he looked decent for Huddersfield and was here to challenge Pickford for number 1?

Havenít seen him but has a decent CV and at 6í5 has what Pickford doesnít have.

He's got some pretty big mistakes in him by the looks of things. My worry is that he comes in for Pickford (probably inevitable as a mistake is only a game away) and plays poorly himself which leaves us swapping the two around throughout the season.

Ederson, Alison, De Gea all have some pretty big mistakes in them, problem is Pickford has more than all of them at the moment. I think that thereís a half glass full way of looking at this too, Pickford ups his game and if not Olsen comes in, pulls off a couple of worldies and keeps the no.1 spot for the rest of the season.

Decent cv?

Not sure on that
30 year old with 220 appearances in mostly tin pot leagues

It's more a case of us being able to actually drop Pickford if and when his next daft mistake comes.

It's not even like we're calling on the keeper to make 4-5 big saves a game as we've been mainly on the front foot and defending well generally.

It's the stupid ones like Saturdays mistake that are going to cost Pickford his place.  If Olsen can just do the basics he'll be an upgrade in the short term.

Been solid enough when I've seen him play for Sweden.

I'd rather this than someone who's been sitting on his arse for the last few years.

Next summer will be the time to get a quality keeper in. Now it's just about having somebody that's solid enough to come in for pickford for a few games.

I'm sure when that happens he'll get dropped and pickford will be back in eventually, but that few weeks off could make a massive difference.
Title: Re: Robin Olsen
Post by: Gary1878 on October 06, 2020, 05:10:40 PM
This is about competition for Pickford and someone that can push him to become better, not to replace him. They clearly didn't think Lossl was that man.

It's quite a big sign though that during this year and next summer we will be looking for Pickford's replacement.

Post by: ajax_andy on October 06, 2020, 06:33:01 PM
He won't be starting against Liverpool, he's there to tell Pickford that if he drops one in the net against them he'll be replaced for the foreseeable future.

It's as good as we could get on loan and makes perfect sense.  Hopefully he'll not be used as Pickford will up his game in response, it's exactly what he needs.

People not happy with the signing need to understand the very basic fact that we have prioritised other positions, and there wasn't any money left to replace Pickford with a top class alternative.  So a signing like this is a good move to see us through to the summer.

No real downside to an experienced loaner like this, we have competition for the keeper role and it'll push one of them to be good enough for this season.

Yep, not sure I ever want this guy to play. There isnít really any coming back once you drop your number 1. Rather not further ruin Pickford, for someone who is likely to make the same errors

He probably is a bit shite.

They probably thought they could get through with Pickford at least this season, try to settle him down and rediscover some form, and then it's been so pathetic since the Spurs game, they gone 'for fuck's sake, this lad's throwing them in, we're gonna have to get some sort of keeper in here'. Looks like they tried for Romero (and probably others).

We've ended up with 'some sort of keeper'.
Title: Re: Robin Olsen
Post by: Lxxx on October 06, 2020, 07:37:04 PM
As others have said if he can do the basics right then that's all we can ask for.

Pickford has literally been gifting goals away and getting nowhere near the ones that are on target. No point scoring for fun and defending pretty well only to see your keeper let them back into the game without having worked for it.

If he ups his game to counter the new competition for his place then great. If this lad comes in and gives us a safe experienced pair of hands then equally great.

Alternatively he's no better than Pickford but it's a chance we had to take with the options on offer.

If Pickford confidence is shot now can you imagine if he was performing like that in front of a full house, imagine also the mockery he would get from away fans about his ďEnglandís no.1Ē status, heís a lucky boy in that sense, jeez, I even remember Howard getting kip from the crowd towards the end.
 Would like to see Pope get the Wales friendly then Pickford play a blunder against Belgium then come back for the Derby with his head in a better place.

Well, Iím completely reserving judgement.

I was chuffed about us possibly signing Richarlison, after seeing Sky pundits blowing him during a Watford match v Chelsea, I think, but then I looked at our thread on him and it was filled with loads of you saying he was overpriced, and mediocre, so it tempered my excitement big time, making me think youíd all watched him being consistently shite, so I bowed to your greater knowledge.

Not a single one of these saves on his highlight reel was anything special. They were all decent, bread and butter saves I would expect any professional to make.

But maybe that's him? He does all the basics very well without having anything spectacular in his locker that would make him a top level keeper.

Watched it until the third save where he did a triple save and decided this post made no sense what so ever.

I mean maybe every save after that is standard, but at least give some credit to that one, it's excellent!

Thereís some very good saves in there - third one stood out in particular. Obviously we are only seeing the positives in this but a few things stand out for me here. 1) his positioning/movement seems to be better than Pickfordís and 2) He is a big physical presence in the box.
Title: Re: Robin Olsen
Post by: Mayor Farnum on October 07, 2020, 05:01:08 AM
I know it's highlights chosen to show him in a good light but he got down well to a lot of low shots for a man of 6'5". Most of his parrys went wide of the goal and he looked quite agile.
No footage of corners or crosses though and in the PL he'll face plenty of them.

Also let's not judge a player on YouTube... Judge him on if / when he plays for us, because really none of us know if he'll be great, awful or somewhere in between.  He might not even play a single minute for us, but if he does I'm not writing him off (or expecting high quality performances) based on a YouTube video.

Gets mentioned here as a big part of Cagliari's recent success https://statsbomb.com/2019/11/can-cagliari-turn-a-hot-start-into-a-historic-season/

In addition to their battering ram, Cagliari also lost Alessio Cragno to injury, the goalkeeper who in their last edition of Serie A saved the most goals, compared to the average keeper (9.93 goals saved above average). In his place came Robin Olsen, ill-treated goalkeeper of AS Roma, currently a key performer in the success of Maran's team.

Cagliari are indeed overperforming, having conceded just 9 non-penalty goals from 13.18 xG, a feat accomplished largely thanks to their Swedish keeper. Olsen has saved 85% of the shots he has faced, 14% more shots than the average keeper (the associated expected save percentage is just 71%). He also has the highest GSAA,, 6.68, in Serie A. In other words, he's preventing 0.56 goals more than the average keeper every game he plays, but he wonít necessarily keep this form for the entire season.
_________

In regards to claiming crosses etc....stats profiles of him show that he is one of the least aggressive claimers of the ball in europes 5 big leagues. 9/10 he chooses to stay on his line than come out and claim a cross :

Well at least the defence will know what he's going to do on corners and just worry about defending the corner and not about whatever Pickford is going to do. Assuming he actually plays that is.

Save stats look good but would be curious to see how Cagliari defend and what kind of chances they are

I'm not being negative. It looks like he gets the straight at him stuff that keepers get most, but not all, of the time.

Would much prefer a steady-eddie type like this right now.

Maybe I was a bit harsh. Some of his one-on-one stops where he made himself look big and closed people down in a slightly-Schmeichel-esque way were pretty good. He's definitely a 'spreader'.

But I disagree that any of them were worldies in that vid.

Unless it's kinda lost in translation and he was trying to get across the fact Pickford has just been rested? Surely it has to be on a performance basis and Olsen starts next game if so

Tbh I just think he said that to the cameras so that it doesnít become a big issue. I wouldnít be surprised to see Olsen in for th3 foreseeable

First time our keeper has done that since Nigel Martyn, probably, as Howard was obsessed with punching, and Pickford generally favours flapping.

I donít get keepers who donít. I used to love going for crosses - usually because I could wipe someone out to do it

And that is both expected and respected, unless you do it against Liverpool.

I donít think financially we can just demote Pickford. Cost too much money. Has to play to hope he gets some value back so can be sold for some money back. Him on the bench for the rest of the season costs us £30M. And we havenít done it with Sig so wonít do it with him.

I get that logic - but his value has dropped significantly anyway I would say
