I agree with those who are saying LMc is a competent back up keeper. He did ok in the first part of the season.

We have seen since Benda came into the side that he (Benda) is a really good keeper, and for me there are two main reasons why he is better than LMc - firstly his height means he can stop some shots which LMc would be unable to reach, it also means he can command his area better and I think we look more secure defending free kicks and corners when Benda is in the team (Whilst he is a good shot stopper, LMc is not particularly good at defending crosses), and secondly, our style of play means we want a keeper who is happy with the ball at his feet, and LMc does not look totally comfortable on that aspect. I know Benda has made the odd error with his feet (first goal at Salford being one) and that he struggled kicking into the wind first half last week but generally that part of his game is fine.
I suspect having an experienced back up is also useful in that LMc can pass on knowledge from past  experience gained to both Benda and Henry, which is something which may be overlooked.

LMc 100 times better than RCC or Moore and at least on a par with Vigs IMO.

It's always worth revisiting what the discussion is about, namely the contention from Maniac that LMc is the best back up in Div 3/4.

Personally I don't see it, when he's played results and performances have been as inconsistent as someone like R C-C, some good some bad, kind of what you'd expect in Div 4 back up keepers.

Further he benched himself citing a loss of confidence, which adds to my feeling that it would be better if we don't have to call on him anytime soon, given how the pressure will ratchet up from now on.

Robinson seems to think his man's position is unique, because he's embedded in the club.... I don't know, just taking it at face value.
Not sure what "embedded" means? Does that mean he's full time (it sounds like he still has his private practice going, so probably not) or they've actually concreted him into the walls at the training ground? Or is it (as I suspect) just hyping up what Robinson hopes will be a selling point for attracting players? Nonetheless, good to see football clubs taking this seriously.

Given up on this one now,  all about opinions and personal choice.  From some of your  earlier posts I think your problem lies deeper than just ghe football side.  Think we're miles apart on our views Reg but then is that not what this forum is all about ?.
