Craig Samson wasn't spectacular but he was nowhere near as bad as folk make out.

Guys a Killie fan and took a lot of criticism, the majority of it unfair.

The goalkeeping Rory Mackenzie. 

That’s harsh on Rory.

Guy tried hard but he wasn't good enough. Anything low was a guaranteed goal and I never saw us lose so many goals down the middle as when we had Samson. Comparing him to Rory is harsh as Rory has contributed a lot more over a sustained period of time.

Yeah but if they'd finished 17th they may have had a replacement lined up that they won't be going for now and Bachmann will be the back up.

He's pretty much always been second or third choice at Celtic and I doubt he will ever improve on that.
As one poster said that is similar to Rogers who has pretty much always been second or third choice at Aberdeen.

Bachmann has been 3rd choice at Watford and woodman was at newcastle, similar levels to celtic and none of us had heard of them before they came to RP or knew their level or quality, not saying Bain is better but I think he's probably similar. I do agree that Bain has given the impression he's happy to sit on the bench or reserves at celtic rather than go out and play somewhere which isn't inspiring. Maybe that'll change now celtic are bringing in a new keeper.  Would rather have Batman over Bain but Bain would be a solid signing for us.

Chad Harpur, Dubourdieu, Samson, Meldrum etc. we've had some utter dross over the years to be fair.

 

Jesus. Had forgotten about Chad Harpur, sure he was in goals the night Gretna pumped us at Motherwell.

Nice guy, Mr Community but murder keeper. Tbf he was about 5' 6"

Samson wasn’t as dreadful as some make him out to be I remember that game at Hibs we had to win to stay out the playoffs and Samson made saves he had no right to make 

Shame he cost us umpteen soft goals that season that led to us being in that position.

Nice guy, Killie fan but not a good goalie.

Just before my time thankfully.

You must have missed Hamish McAlpine scoring against Barry with a kick out, one bounce and over his head. I have never seen it happen again.

He was howling too.

He was almost signed last year as back up to Branescu. Koprivec became available at a similar time and Alessio went with him as he had an international cap and spoke Italian.

 

Robinson wouldn't have been the worst #2 GK we've had over the years.

At one time (season 2004-05), we had Combe, Smith, Samson and Bell on the books.

People might not rate all of them but they were strength in depth we've rarely had since.

It’s been long awaited and Watford have known it was coming. He was supposed to be retiring last season but decided to delay it for another year

Has been at least one notable setback recently but overall (on paper at least ) been a decent recruitment window , so far ......hopefully adding to with a couple of decent loan deals over next few weeks to improve quality in squad 
 

Whether or not we then see better results this season with this squad we will soon found out over next month or so , at the moment it does look more hopeful ....

Is the Bain thing serious or just fan speculation?

Was just me asking a question given the players Celtic were linked with and the fact we are looking for a keeper
