Bob Wilson and Farquharson were the only two names that sprung to my mind as competition but you can only judge your own era and even that's hard. I was tempted to go for Gavin Ward, who did have a decent career and was good for us but at a much lower level. I was a kid then di didn't have much to compare him too

Alexander worthy of a shout too but never had the chance to sign in the Prem like Marshall.
Dibble and Hansbury were pretty good.

Probably the best we have had.
I remember Bob Wilson as a kid I thought he was brilliant but Marshall edges it for me.
We have been fortunate with keepers over the years.
Fred Davies was a far better keeper than Bob Wilson and if Fred had been able to play against Hamburg, we probably would have won that tie overall.

Marshall is / was a great shot stopper but his command of his area and distribution were pretty poor. Heaton was a better all round keeper but was unfortunate in that Marshall had the gloves when he arrived..

Ward was dodgy on crosses. I liked Alexander, Dave Jones did't :hehe: Brought in that Forde, who I thought was a disaster but seemed to get away with things. Ended up in the Ireland team after he left here.

It was Wilson displays that put there in the first place.
It's really hard to compare players but as I said we have had some really good keepers over the years.

Have we ever had a 'keeper who played for the national side when with us? Margetson aside.

We have had some poor ones as well that Greek chap comes to.mind

Zois is always mentioned, but only had the one game.

Andy Dibble - didn't see him except as a 5/6 year old.

Mel Rees, tragic story.

Apart from Marshall, maybe Allan Macgregor when he was on loan, but perhaps you mean Welsh keepers only ?

Yes, just the Welsh side.

Forgot about McGregor.

Phil Kite was the 'keeper who injured Hemmerman at Bristol Rovers. Grew was inconsistent.

Hallworth was brilliant - crazy how he ended up here from Oldham who were in the PL at the time.
