    Kicker had him 7th in 2.liga with an average rating of 2.91. So, in the top-10 keepers in the 2nd division.

    I'll also point out that Holstein Kiel had the most defenders in the top-15 best rated defenders in 2.liga, so Kronholm's job was probably a little easier than most.

    from the 1st game, decent shot stopper but very shaky with the ball at his feet and doesn't deal well with pressure.

    It's the first game of the season, lets see how he is after a few under his belt. Right now he has 1 clean sheet.

    clean sheets are not an indicator to how well a keeper played. And he's not a young keeper, almost 33 years old. His issues are the same as they were last season. Seems less likely to change.

    would you use saves or goals against average or performances in big games as the deciding factor?

    he's not impressing vs 1860 and should be glad that 2nd goal was ruled offside.

    I saw him in the pro/rel playoff between Kiel and 1860 4-5 years ago and he was exactly the same. At 33 he's not going to change much, if at all. Nice to keep up to date with a YA abroad, but there was no way he was ever going to play for the MNT.

    in goal as Kiel beats 2BL leaders Hamburg 3-1.With this Kiel are in 5th place going into the break. 4 pts away from promotion playoff spot.

    anyways this post is more about him being linked with Chicago Fire of MLS.

    Dream of national team lives
    According to Liga-Zwei.de information, MLS club Chicago Fire has deposited its interest in a commitment Kronholms in Kiel. The team for 2014 World Champion Bastian Schweinsteiger is looking for a new goalkeeper for the season starting in March and has aligned their search radius for the new keeper to Europe.

    A change in his country of birth would favor Kronholm's big dream of a career in the national team. The new US coach and former Bundesliga professional Gregg Berhalter has Kronholm according to our research for some time on the slip, would see him in a change in the MLS accordingly more often.

    also says that Kiel reject a Winter move but could reconsider if they can find a strong replacement.

    Kronholm started as Kiel got knocked out of the DFB-Pokal by Augsburg. 1-0 final, winner came in the 85th. Kronholm looks like he got a hand to it, but couldn't keep the shot out.
