The most insane thing is, they've registered 4 keepers. It seems to be that due to so much of their squad being under 21 opened up some gaps and that wary of a covid outbreak in the team (especially with the goalkeepers in close contact) if anything does happen he'll take off the suit and tie and have a full kit on underneath. 

No, the most insane thing is he isn't the oldest goalkeeper in the squad.

I know everyone is bored of me going on about Wrexham, and next season I'll make my own thread so people can avoid me going on about them like we did with the North London clubs, but here is their mis

Just had to check that and that's actually brilliant. 

Gotta love Chelsea and their old keepers.

Joe Hart was always destined to become shit whether Pep was a cunt or not. When it came time to stand up to scrutiny he crumbled like dry Weetabix in the hands of Andre the Giant.  Who was the last great British goalie? You could make a case for David Seaman but even then I’d argue he wasn’t a great goalie. Very good but not great. That being said keepers of the quality of Seaman, Flowers and Martyn would walk in to the current England team and stay there for 10 years.

Depends on what your classification for great is. I would say top 3-5 in the world at a position and Seaman probably was at a time. 

He is certainly significantly better than anyone who has came after him to my mind.

Seaman's reputation was tainted by sticking around 5 years too long when he had no mobility anymore. But he did that save against Sheffield United that convinced everyone he was still really good when he actually should have been retired by then.

Hart won two league titles, two league cups and an FA Cup with Man City. I never saw the keeper as a problem there. If anything, Pep made things worse when he replaced Hart with Claudio Bravo during his first season in charge.

Since he lost his place he has moved to Torino before becoming a second choice goalie for Burnley, West Ham and Spurs. City have gone on to win leagues and cups. I think it’s fair to say Hart wasn’t a major contributor to their success although he was very good for a few seasons. It’s his mentality, usually confidence in abundance is a great attribute in a Keeper but it seems to work against him.

How did that work out for Guardiola, City and Hart in the end?

Well Pep replaced Bravo for a start. Granted, City have won titles and trophies since (not when Bravo was the first choice keeper I might add - they won nothing that season). Hart hasn’t done much since either but being so unceremoniously ditched by Pep probably didn’t do Hart’s confidence and mentality much good. Don’t get me wrong, Pep has been great for City overall but his treatment of certain players has left me baffled at times. I blame Pep’s treatment of Leroy Sane for him becoming unsettled and wanting to leave. I still don’t think Pep trusts Phil Foden either (one of the only players who looked like he cared when he came on in the second half yesterday). City aren’t exactly setting the Premier League alight right now either by the way.

If you'd watched any of Guardiola's teams you would know that Hart wasn't what he was going to want from a keeper. He's trying to win trophies and he's managing a club that's spent hundreds of millions of pounds. The owners want trophies. He had to be ruthless and he was. He wanted a keeper who was confident with the ball at his feet and who would be good at distribution. Hart has never been either of those things. Bravo's failure didn't change Guardiola's mind, he just realised he needed different defenders in front of him and a more mobile keeper for a faster paced league. You can't blame Guardiola for Hart's failings since. If he was as good a keeper as you're claiming then he would have found another big club and thrived there. He didn't.
