His physique is ridiculous for a professional goalkeeper. Every bit as unprofessional as it would be if he had one like Rab C. Nesbitt. He'd probably be fantastic as the Incredible Hulk, unfortunately for Vale he's a **** keeper in reality.

semi professional indeed his activities or not compatible with being a pro footballer. I remember many years ago the great Peter Shilton got into body building but then stopped it as he recognised that it was hindering his career as a goal keeper. Tomo should take note

As much as people go on about the famous Tomorrow chest bounce, at least he does what all young keepers are told and gets his body behind the ball.

 

Now, look at the goal we conceded on Tuesday night.

Body behind the ball though? My 13 year old keeper does that. Not exactly rocket science.

I personally think Tommo is alright for our level. Yes he makes mistakes but when you watch the football league show, some of the howlers on there are far worse. Take Accrington away for example, their keeper gifted us two goals.

 

If we go up a division then I agree we need a better keeper, but in League 2, he's ok.

I've been saying all season Tomlinson's muscle bound and it hinders his game. I don't rate him at all and he's cost us loads of points this season through spilling the ball or dreadful positioning.

 

Trouble is Chris Martin has lost his way and gone from a promising young keeper to an error prone understudy.

 

I think we need a proven decent keeper for next season and continue with Martin as back up in the hope he can get back on track and improve; if he can't he'll have to go as well.

 

Looks like Macc are doomed and their keeper Jose Vega has always struck me as pretty decent at L2 level although I haven't seen a lot of him, so maybe we could take advantage of their misfortune? (We could also go for Nat Brown as a replacement for McDonald).
