    Jesse Gonzalez had a fantastic save against Efra Alvarez yesterday.


    Jesse is kinda Bill Hamid-like. Capable of making the truly spectacular save...…………….but the other parts of the game can let him down. He's been notably more vocal in the back so far this season.

    Horvath with the 6th league cleansheet in his 17th league game of the season. 4-0 win to Brugge today.

    Luchi may force Gonzalez to work on his weaknesses. He wants even his keepers to help in possession and had them work in rondo drills early in preseason with everyone else. He is also being more vocal. Maybe he’s just growing up as leper’s usually get better later than others.

    Cincinnati's keeper, younger guy who was in development with the whitecaps for awhile. He had the talent from what I remember, he was loaned out to Cincy in USL the last two years too

    It'll be great to see Steffen vs Horvath in training. I wonder who gets the no.3 spot. I'd wager Johnson as it might be awkward with Hamid's recent comments. I don't figure Atlanta lets Guzan get called up.

    Johnson got the no.3 spot as predicted. I do wonder if Hamid might have gotten it were it not for his comments.

    Im not sure he did anything last night. His two saves werent worth making the highlights as they blew our RSL.

    True that, but I just meant in relation to his cleansheets. Those plus great saves (performances) can get him that move back to DK.

    Jesse Gonzalez is back with the national team. We'll likely get to see a lot of Horvath in the upcoming friendlies.

    We'll see. I still havent seen him clean up the issues with his game that kept him from winning a spot in the first trip.

    footwork. With many teams now wanting GKs to play out of the back. I love Bill (his return to DC United has me jumping for joy) and he is a great shot stopper but way too often he plays the ball back immediately to the other team, even when it is a relatively simple pass. My understanding is that Horvath will need to work on the same weaknesses. GB and many other coaches definitely value that, and if neither Bill nor Horvath improve in that regard, I could see Sean Johnson moving forward (possibly even starting in March).

    "Personally I think it’s wide open," Horvath said of the competition for the starting USMNT goalkeeper job. "Brad (Guzan) is not here right now and right now it’s me, Sean (Johnson) and Jesse (Gonzalez). Zack is obviously in the picture and Brad’s obviously in the picture. I think it’s wide open. All we can do is come into training, and whoever plays the game, just show Gregg and the coaching staff that we are ready."
