He did an excellent punch last night.
Agreed. Came and took crosses, got pinned for one where they somehow missed though. Liked his attitude after the penalty save by shouting at the defence to concentrate and get in position for the corner instead of taking the plaudits on the save.
Credit where credit is due, but I would still prefer Big ben back between the sticks.
Thoughts of the Austria boss:
Foda considers him a ‘penalty area presence’ and ‘confident cross catcher’ and thus wants to test him out in his side ahead of the Euros.
Don't know what he's been watching!!!
Hopefully the shape of things to come.
I can't see why not.
Just watched the extended 10 mins highlights. RU only had 5 corners and 2 made it into the highlights where Bachmann was again a goal-line bystander. The second he was only interested in pushing the RU striker and not even looking at or attempting to get to the ball. I still think this is a serious weakness in his game.
Yes I agree but there was signs that he was coming of the line to take crosses. RU missed a sitter 2nd half from a corner where DB and Ngakia should of done better but also the other defenders needed to cover around the back which they didn't giving him a free header that somehow he missed. I still see more positives than negatives in the keeper and hope he keeps his position. The stats are showing he is more than capable and I'm personally very impressed with his handling.
I'm genuinely surprised by how much difference a keeper who is comfortable with the ball at his feet makes. We retain possession and start so many more attacks now. How much of that is down to Bachmann being better with the ball than Foster and how much is the absence of Troy demanding we smash balls up to him, I'm not entirely sure but it's definitely nice to see us build from the back.
Yes so long as we don’t play around with it for too long getting caught out but fortunately seem to have avoided that so far .
Most teams seem to sit off us when we play out so far, will be interesting to see how we cope with a team that presses consistently. Can see why teams don't risk it when we've got Sarr
Another good game today from Austria's new #1
Didn't have a serious save to make, but much better from crosses
Interview with Bachmann on the BBC site.
About his International hopes and connection with Steve Clarke.
Huge admiration for this guy. An international cap would top off a first-class attitude.
Doesn’t look like he is in the match day squad.
