Hi Ed001. I know your know ramsdale's biggest fan but what do you make of this Ramsdale / Raya situation? I personally feel it is not a problem if Arteta brough Raya as the new number 1 but what do you think? People are blaming Arteta now for Ramsdale losing confidence and having a shocking game against Brentford. Cheers mate.

{Ed001's Note - he had to change him, that I don't think is the issue, Ramsdale can't even concentrate on a match. Him and his dad have had far too much to say as well, which has proved Arteta right to want to change him, though it is going to be difficult to get much money back on him after their comments. The issue is that he brought a keeper in who is no improvement on him, in fact might even be worse. So it has become an issue. He will have to bring in someone else instead as soon as possible. But I certainly don't see Arteta as having made a mistake by looking to replace Ramsdale.}

I just wondering with all this debate around Raya and Ramsdale and lots of people believing that Raya has not been an improvement and that it doesn't seem to be an upgrade and all the media's negative coverage about it and highlighting all of Raya's mistakes, which there have been a couple.

Not a lot is mentioned about the assured displays that Raya has had and some outstanding saves that he has made, but more importantly the fact that we have the best defensive record in the league and have conceded the fewest goals, I am not going to accept that is only the defensive partnership (Saliba and Gaberial) that has made that happen, it's the defensive unit.

Last season in the run we didn't have a problem scoring goals, but we let in some silly goals from some commanding positions as well, i personally don't believe it a coincidence that this season we have been less fluid but have been much harder to score against and beat.

I think Arteta has identified that as an area we need to improve on and actually while we do all have our opinions on the situation (i am also someone who would prefer Ramsdale to be No.1) the stats and fact sho that we have improved and are currently sat top with the least goals conceded and apparently still have not hit top form (i not sure that I agree with this, I just think perhaps that has been a slight change in how we are playing and rays is part of that change)

just a thought but i do think way to much has been made about the situation, and I don't think Arteta has made Ramsdale lose confidence, there should be competition for place. but I do think the media have made way to much about the situation and I think it gets way too much coverage.

I may have mentioned before but we have 2 young English GK at palace in Johnstone and Henderson who are about the same level in ability, but I have not heard that being made into a story about having 2 keepers battling for the NO.1 jersey.

Cheers Ed. I think Arteta made the right decision replacing Ramsdale. I think Raya is better than him, and even though it hasn’t showed yet, I think over the course of the season it will be clear that Raya is the better keeper.

Raya is better than Ramsdale but it just hasn't shown yet, I think a penny is worth more than a pound but it's just hasn't been accepted by thr International monetary fund yet ????.

Basing off of past seasons in the EPL gunner62 mate.

Fair play Dagenham mate, I'm basing my comparison on when you could but 2 pints for a penny compared to todays egg cup full of beer for £1 mate. It's all relative I guess, what was, was, what is, is and what is yet to be is yet to be seen.
