Nice little shoutout on commentary about how well we'd protected him and got him up to speed as a number one.

Yes I heard them say how well we've managed him and his development with the rotation with Steele.

The youngest keeper at the Euros and the youngest Netherlands goalie at a Finals.

Surely not. All the 'experts' on here have told us how RDZ effectively almost RUINED his career with the MADNESS of squad rotation.

All because Roberto's masterplan was Steele being called up to the England squad apparently!

Yes, this tournament has helped Bart's development. He did not let his country down.

My son (7) was strangely subdued after the game. Turned out he felt sad for Bart.

Question on Bart.

If you had the chance to swap him for any other keeper in the world, would you? Who would it be?

I mean, someone like Allison is probably above him, but at an age where he's unlikely to improve. Same with Coutois

Because I'm thinking, my answer would be no. I'd take Bart and the future he has over any other keeper in the world. Donnarumma is the only one who would tempt me

Has one penalty save credited to him in his career. Was in the Belgian Challenger Pro League, which is their second tier playing for Anderlecht reserves against Standard Liege reserves.

He did however save 3 out of 3 penalties in the only (?) penalty shootout he's experienced to date, Anderlecht vs Ludogoretz.

He did save 3, and I went and hunted down the shootout video last night and the pens were shocking from Ludogretz. Credit to Bart for going the right way for all 3 though. However penalty shootout records are never included in overall stats for a player hence them missing from the list I posted (which is a bit harsh on a goalkeeper).

He was also involved in another shootout in the QF of the Conference League that season. Anderlecht lost 4-1 on pens to AZ Alkmaar (Mat Ryan was in goal for AZ).

Other than Jason Steele, no-one

Need to sign him up

I'd be hard pushed to think of a less suitable keeper for our style of play than Donnarumma.
