Given was a top stopper, but other parts of his game were average to poor.  Command of box especially and distribution was poor.

There's few others I'd prefer between the sticks for a desperate reaction save than Given but other than that his stature made him weak in the box and it seemed like he was aware of that since he rarely came off his line to pick up balls. His distribution wasn't great either, albeit a bit exaggerated on here. All in all above average keeper in his time, and he would still be above average today, in a league below De Gea/Kepa/Allison/Schmeicel.

The amount of times he was beaten from distance with absolute ease was ridiculous and let's not even mention his pathetic record against penalties
and now Tudor's gone down for Newcastle

Saved us from a hammering, in my view. Four world class stops.

What the hell is this absolute cack?  :lol:   

Given made incredible saves in just about every match, and he seemed to have a knack of making them at vital times aswell.  His positives massively outweighed his negatives man!  He was probably worth about 10 points a season to us from about 2001 onwards.

Saw nufc.com blamed him (twice) for the free kick - though that was overly harsh.

I noticed Brewcie talked up Hourihane's left foot - wonder if he once said to Dubs "This boy, I've seen him do this fancy move in training..."

Dubs should have actually torn a strip off his defenders for both goals. f***ing daydreaming, the lot of them

He is probably a top half of the table keeper, but not quite a top 4/6, he is better than what we are.

It certainly was. Doesn't look spectacular, in fact he makes it look easy, but it was outstanding.

I've given him some severe stick lately but that was absolutely exceptional from him today.
