Albion keeper called up by England

The Argus: Christian Walton Christian Walton

Albion goalkeeping prospect Christian Walton has been named in the England under 19's squad for a friendly against Turkey at Chester on Wednesday.

Walton has earned his first call-up after taking part in an FA training camp in Surrey last month for some of the country's most promising keepers.

His rival for the No. 1 spot is Mitchell Beeney, son of former Albion keeper Mark.

The squad also includes Southampton's Worthing-born midfielder Harrison Reed.

Fair comment Mark and difficult to argue against. So why don't they do it...? You and I should manage the team. I could do the difficult bits whilst you take on NJ's role, talking about it... you do it so well...!!!
Dream team! UTA, whoever's in charge.

If he's good enough to get a call for the England squad, then surely we can acknowledge his development by giving him a place on our bench, at least.
He has to be worth a shout after Brez's performance midweek.

Agree 100%. put him on the bench for rest of season, we need to see how good he is. Reports suggest he is going to be very good. .When we get to a stage (if we do), that mathematically a top 6 finish is not possible, we may play him We have had two articles in the Argus that appears to suggest that TK will not sign a new contract. At least this is consistent with developing the D S. players.
On another note well done for making a signing without player publically turning us down!

They probably haven't done it as he is getting more experience and developing quicker by actually playing for the U21s. What good will it do him just sitting on the bench?

I agree, however, that he could have played in the cup games as it seems he has far more chance of being our number 1 at some stage than Brezovan or Ankergren do.

The first Albion goalkeepers I watched were Harry Baldwin and Jack Ball in 1948/9. God, that makes me old! I don't think I've seen a worse Albion goalkeeping performance in the years since then than Brezovan's last Monday. It occurred to me to wonder if he was picked to bring about an exit from the cup and avoid an embarrassing encounter with Mr.Poyet. If so he did a great job. It would be wonderful to see a young English goalkeeper in the Albion side.

I think Walton has had one 'bench' outing already earlier this season when Kuszczak and Ankergren were injured. Perhaps he will get more opportunities later in the season if we 'drop out' of the race for the play-offs.

It's great that Albion have a young keeper getting some international recognition and hopefully he will develop into a very fine keeper. However, getting into the England under 19 squad and playing in the championship (particularly when we are desperate for points) is a world apart. Imagine him playing and making the same kind of mistake as Brezovan, it could knock his confidence for ages and put him back. I think we have to trust OG and keeper coach to make the right call, as has been done with Ince and March. But it's great news for our club.

I think you are right about not bringing the lad on too quickly, but as number two choice, he would be rarely called upon as our season approaches it's end.
Had we not had such a good cup run Brez might have got two games this year, this lad if on the bench for the last 8 matches, with luck, wouldn't start but would be more involved witht he senior squad, that could help for next year.
If he were promoted to our second choice keeper next year, at his age and stage of development, he is not going to be troubled by not making a start but the more intense training that the senior lads go thru, could work wonders for him.

There have been dozens of worse performances by an Albion keeper than Brazovan's on Monday. One of them by TK, but several by Nicky Rust, Brian McKenna, Mark Cartwright, Alan Blayney, Simon Royce, Wayne Henderson, Graeme Smith etc. The list goes on and on.

Brezovan's really was not all that bad in comparison. It's not like he shipped seven: one was possibly his fault, the other was not.

Best goalies I've seen are: Peter Grummit (he was the best, and my wife painted his portrait for his testimonial match). Eric Gill, we got to have Joe Courigan in there somewhere... and Graham Moseley put in a shift. For consistency I think Brian Powney played more games than anyone else. And ofcourse TK (could possibly push Peter Grummitt and Eric Gill for top two).

What is agreed is that the two current understudies are not in the top 20 of all time Albion custodians so move them on and give Walton a go.If either of them get retained it will be a huge error by the powers that be.

We need to promote Walton to number two, and realise Brez and angergan , saving money, if we get a injury to our number 1 bring in a loan,
I can agree with maybe havig the lad as number two keeper, but I would prefer it if we had another young lad as number three rather than having to do an emergency loan deal. Develop our own, it's the best way to go.
We have another promising keeper (Grant something) who's also gaining credit for his development. Perhaps too early but a number three next year or the year after perhaps?

The first Albion goalkeepers I watched were Harry Baldwin and Jack Ball in 1948/9. God, that makes me old! I don't think I've seen a worse Albion goalkeeping performance in the years since then than Brezovan's last Monday. It occurred to me to wonder if he was picked to bring about an exit from the cup and avoid an embarrassing encounter with Mr.Poyet. If so he did a great job. It would be wonderful to see a young English goalkeeper in the Albion side.
There have been dozens of worse performances by an Albion keeper than Brazovan's on Monday. One of them by TK, but several by Nicky Rust, Brian McKenna, Mark Cartwright, Alan Blayney, Simon Royce, Wayne Henderson, Graeme Smith etc. The list goes on and on.

Brezovan's really was not all that bad in comparison. It's not like he shipped seven: one was possibly his fault, the other was not.
Agree with this. Criticism has become exaggerated.
