  In reply to: Good point on US Goalkeeping  posted by SixShutouts66

His goals against in Kansas City are:
2015 1.21
2016 1.11
2017 0.43

He certainly doesn't look like Friedel or Keller, but we'll see how his numbers pan out this season. The other name being discussed is Seattle GK and recent US citizen Stefan Frei. He has more game experience with comparable numbers to Melia before this season.

I'll take them both over Howard and Rimando. I need to see Guzan play some games with Atlanta this summer. Bill Hamid and Sean Johnson have shown flashes of brilliance and look more like the tall lanky keepers that from central casting, but Hamid gets hurt all of the time and Johnson just got traded, so his old team found him expendable.
