    Not really working out, is it? How long do you give him? Can't afford for him to carry on as he is at the moment, can we? He might be a good a shot-stopper but he hardly inspires confidence, does he? Quite small for a keeper too.

      He might not improve. He could get worse.
      If you read some of the posts here, i'd guess that's not possible.

      There was hardly anything between the two sides today, neither created much.

      The difference? Ryan throwing one in after a minute then flapping at a ball at a key moment.

      Should have been a point today.

      Really not so sure. To me it barely looked like Leicester got out of first gear.

      Ryan is rubbish though, weird scouting for that one.

      At the moment he is a complete liability and worth a goal start to the opposition before the game has even kicked off.

      I imagine Hughton's final instructions were something like, "keep it tight for the first 20 minutes then we can build on that..."

      So what happens? Ryan spills a regulation shot after 45 seconds and bang - one down and effectively game over.

      He needs to get his shit together very quickly.

      it's possible, but letting in a soft goal every game is bad enough
      Never adds anything of interest.

      Well that didn't take long ! I wonder when CH will become a target ?
      You can't blame CH yet. If he was not given the players early enough to bed in, it's hardly his fault. Chris Woods off to Burnley for £15 mill, fee agreed
      It's not the size of the Cannon, it's the power of the shot.

      Maybe the early goal did that, but at times Brighton looked decent with the ball without much of a threat or cutting edge, sort the forwards and keepers out and will stay up.

      We weren't good enough as a unit today and didn't deserve a point. However a really good goal keeping performance might have saved a point. That was NOT a good keeper performance

      Things for Ryan
      1. He is brave
      2. He cost £5m and whatever some people say was always going to be set up as our first choice keeper at that price.
      3. He deserves a longer chance before being written off

      Things against Ryan
      1. He is too short
      2. He's never succeeded at this level. His record always concerned me.

      Unfortunately the things against him are rather serious. I think we'll have a new keeper in the new year and Maenpaa will get his (deserved) chance before that.

      I remember being fed up with Stockdale during his first season and relieved when we signed Manepaa as I saw him as a replacement. He could've been our player of the season for each of the last two seasons and I don't think any other player singlehandedly won us more points than he did or stopped us loosing the points. I found myself gutted once he left.

      Ryan has the difficult job of not just playing for a side who has spent 2 seasons winning most of their games to a team expected to win about 25% of their matches but also he has to replace a keeper who was a massive fans favourite that most wanted to see us keep.

      Give it a few weeks and he will be a superb part of our squad
