So I think what we are saying is Bayzo is to the late 2010s and early 2020s what Bassey was to the late 2000s and early 2010s. Loyal hype boy who is handily also half-decent at his job.

Sav I don't know if he does stuff on the side - it's not uncommon at these levels. I'd suggest he's not getting paid what he could get but it was telling that during the past few seasons, especially when we had so many new players and managers, he was very active on getting on the pitch after games, directing the players etc. He might be settled and really love his life. From what I've heard he is really mad about football. Thinking about it, it doesn't seem that common for GK coaches to move around anyway (not big moves that I can think of). A big money women's team might be the one that would happen for someone like him.

Lurks - thanks interesting insights. He certainly seems good at his job and it's telling that he has been kept on by five of our managers (if I can count right). It's also possible that there's just not that much difference in salary between a L2 GK coach and a Championship one, it's not exactly one of the glamour jobs you here a lot about. (So chasing big jobs less of a thing.)

Final point pure speculation mind you!
Brits is difficult to judge, still not 17 and was probably always going to get poached when bigger clubs found out he was playing a couple of years up in age (which is more difficult for a keeper really).

I think we lost our best potential home grown keeper to City not too long ago…. 👀

Bayzo strikes me as someone who is passionate at his job and I think his character helps to instil a bit of self belief into any goalkeepers fortunate to work with him. It’s difficult to gauge how good a coach is on paper but if all your alumni GKs seem to enjoy their time working here and have improved under him then it’s a big plus. You can’t really measure something like ‘instilling self belief’, it just strikes me that if you have a bad game that Bayzo will be straight onto you picking you up again.

Probably one of our best ever signings!
I'm pretty sure there's been the odd piece over the years where Bayes has talked about wanting to find an undiscovered big potential and develop them to be the number 1 here and progress. It's not uncommon. (I know a semi independent coach who does some stuff recommending keepers for pro clubs to look at etc. I've been told he gets approached about working at the clubs. He told me years ago his thing is wanting to help the kids who don't have the contacts but do have the ability/potential to fulfil theirs. He's also not a fan of the way the big clubs grind through youngsters).

Some people don't feel the need to chase the big jobs?
Sav I’ve been told by goalkeeping coaches (independent and guys with links to higher clubs) that he’s highly thought of in this region. Maybe not the entire country that’s more open to question. But the comments from the keepers is also interesting. It has been suggested before that we get loans from bigger clubs for keepers because they know he’ll be good for them. (Compare the quality of keeper loans to outfielders we get from big clubs). (Ramsdale talked about he rang Long to find out about us and Long’s big sell was you’ll love the GK coach, he’s mad but great).

Generally shouting abuse at people is not a good thing and shouldn't happen and if you do give it you should be able to take it

Apart from frannies and some dodgy referees
Wonder how Ben Wilson feels about our fans ,at 22 years old playing on loan,he got slaughtered by some fans.even years later prominent fan use to slate him on twitter,quite embarrassing and at least he had a decent time at Coventry

Yeah I'm ok with players (particularly owned rather than loaned) telling gobby fans to shut the fuck up. I'm ok with gobby fans too btw. We can't all clap along with fakes smiles whilst watching some of the shit served up, but players should be allowed to give some back too.

Pullen was a good servant to this club during his stint with us.
I was at the York game.Pullen was being given constant abuse by one of our ‘supporters’ throughout that half. The guy made sure Pullen heard him. If you’re going to be so abusive then don’t moan when the person you are attacking snaps back.

Can’t see how this helps during the game.

Sam walker for me was the pick of the poor keepers,and the short arse.

Suppose you can't improve every keeper
Was that the same keeper someone set up a count-down to departure website? Or is my memory of those days getting hazy?

Who was the keeper who swore at our fans in a Conference game at somewhere like York? James Tilley?

I tend to agree with Nick - I always just assumed the dynamic of their being only two meaningful keeper spots in a squad, meant greater willingness to loan good players out. Hence teams like us having on average more successful loans in that spot than the hit-and-miss of loans elsewhere on the pitch.

Maybe the reason it appears.that we treat our own keepers in a lesser light is that the standard of keeper we have been able to afford to sign permanantly was/piss poor. I think the thinking is thatany decent money should be paid for outfield players and keepers aren't winners so a higher class keeper on a subsidised loan is the answer. I disagree with that thinking by the way

Do we really have "arguably the best goalkeeping coach in the EFL"?

[86.lo.gg.ed] 
Not meant to be disrespectful to Bayzo - he's clearly pretty good and seems to be a fun person around the club, but I just don't imagine that the best talent in the EFL would stay at AFCW for 10+ years whatever role they are in.
