Dimi will be off in June, contract up. Mejias and Ripley competing for the place on the bench.

Yes. A keeper with some physical presence would be nice, particularly in the Championship.

No way Valdes will stay. I agree we need a keeper with a presence though

I like Valdes and felt he was unfairly criticized at the beginning of the season. I actually think he's been one of the few positives we can take from this season. At the end of the day you can't argue against our defensive record.

Valdes is still a high quality keeper and as much as I love Dili, he's I a different league to him.

VV will almost certainly get offers from other PL clubs if we go down.

I hope Valdes does leave. Good shot stopper, fast reflexes but he is prone to calamitous errors and bad luck

Yesterday the tide had turned, we were back in the game at 1-2 and pushing for a deserved equaliser. Then he gets his foot caught in the turf and it's all over. He is the Norman Wisdom of PL keepers unfortunately

Most definitely. Three outstanding blocks by Valdes yesterday, but then once again a deep cross leaves him in no mans land as he can never decide whether to stick or twist. Stay on his line he gets the header, and we go in at half time nil each.

"He is the Norman Wisdom of PL keepers unfortunately" - that was anomoly not the norm, jees, give the guy a break. He has performed well this season.

Regarding the back post cross. Any GK coach will tell you that would be the wrong time to come and collect. High looping cross, two defenders in position to deal with it....they should have, but Gibson and Fabio both switched off and left Valdes vulnerable.

Can't see Valdez staying if we are relegated..

Is Mejias still here?? not up to the physicality of British game..

Dimi could work.. though expect if we are relegated Ripley will be given the chance to impress with Dimi as backup & Cup keeper..

I don't get why people rate Valdes so much - he has made countless bloopers this season that have cost both goals and points. I think the only reason Dimi wasn't given a chance this season was that Aitor fell out with him. Both Valdes and Guzan were very pointless and unnecessary signings imo

I don't want Dimi or Valdes anywhere near the team in the championship next season.

Give Ripley a chance, you never know we may have a top drawer number 1 on our hands for many years to come.

I think Valdes has a few seasons left in the top flight. Clearly he needed this season to re-establish himself. If we go down then I don't think there will be a shortage of prem league clubs wanting to snap him up.

Guzan's already signed a pre-contract for an MLS team hasn't he?

I think Valdes is great, and let's not forget he's Victor XXXXXX Valdes - what a treat it must be to be in a dressing room with someone who's had the career he's had. Took a while to settle into it because he hadn't played for two years and still shaky on the odd cross but his shot-stopping is as good as it gets and his distribution is pinpoint. There were a few games earlier in the season when he'd land it on Negredo's chest nine times out of ten. Wasn't it Pep or the Spain manager who said he'd be good enough to play for Spain as an outfield player?

If he likes the area he might stay next season, depends what we're paying him and whether we can afford to keep him I suppose. Obviously he came here for AK. I'm sure there'd be plenty of PL clubs who'd want him, as well as China & MLS because of his profile.

With Guzan going back to the state's and Mejias and Dimi out of contract well be left with just Valdes and Ripkey

Rippers training with Valdes everyday for a season could really help his development. He's had plenty of game time at lower levels but this would be an opportunity to learn from the best.

I'd be happy with Valdes No 1 and Rippers as back up.

Whether Valdes could handle the championship is another matter.

I can't believe people are on here knocking valdes what a load of XXXXXXe. 3 or 4 excellent saves and the goal was bad marking. Yes he slipped for the 3rd but the game was finished. Do people really think dimi would have made those saves? Dimi dropped a few fatties in his time while playing in a defence that protected him for most of the game. Valdes is playing with a team in front of him who are struggling. Dimi would have struggled to cope with the quality and pace of attacks in the premier lge.

Can't really knock him about that slip.
However, and this is only based on televised evidence, I still reckon the main area that I'm not convinced about with Valdes,is his dealing with crosses - something which IMO was a strength of Dimi..
He has looked pretty good in other aspects.

Has conceded the most goals from outside the area of any Premier League keeper this season, which is a concern for someone who is primarily a shot stopper, I think he's a decent keeper but can't think of too many Premier League sides where he'd get in first choice.

Would have been nice to see him get a chance in PL but can't see him staying after this season

Mejias Ripley and Valdes have another year left but I can't see Valdes staying if we go down, and I really can't see Mejias returning

We know Guzan is off after the season , so I'd guess a new keeper, or , will be here next season

Hope Ripley ends up being good enough to get a chance here
