I think this guy deserves a thread of his own for his part in our pathetic relegation. I can think of 15 lost points without much effort thinking.

Has any keeper cost us as many points in a season in living memory as this clown? I never though anyone would be worse than Billy Turley, Chris Dunn or Dave Cornell.

This embarrassing excuse for a keeper had trumped them all.

Harsh.
But true - I personally cannot remember a worse keeper in all my years following the Cobblers. Has certainly cost us many points this season. He’s simply non-league standard.

Not having a proper number 1 was an absolutely ridiculous decision...

Instead we had two bang avarage L2 keepers at best battling it out...

Never known a keeper as injury prone as Arnold & some of the goals Mitchell has conceded have been utterly laughable for an alledged professional keeper...

Thankfully, we shouldn't see either again as I would hope the youth keeper (along with several other youth players) are selected v Sunderland...will be a great experience for them & I don't see the point playing any loan players either as they won't be here next season.

He has been absolutely fecking useless at times and without a doubt has cost us dearly this season.

To single him out when the whole team lacks anything even approaching quality. This side would be relegation fodder in division 4. The strikers have been the worst cog in the machine. Absolutely no return from any of them. If they had put the odd goal in the ones conceded at the other end would not have been an issue. So many strikers and not a single one contributing anything.

I agree with you SOG as someone on here have lost it judging by some of the comments flying around.

Mitchell is definitely well below par for a League 1 goalkeeper. Worse than Arnold IMO, who in turn is not as good as Cornell, a keeper who many spent the whole of last season criticising in League 2. Having said that, as others have said, Mitchell is far from the only reason we've been relegated.

What I do think is extraordinary, however, is that we allowed oursleves to get into a situation where Mitchell was our only real goalkeeping option for the last third of the season, meaning he would play whatever his form was like. With Arnold's injury and staying in L1 at stake, couldn't we have got an emergency loan goalkeeper to challenge him for that position?

On the contrary, with him being out of contract, I’d not rule that out  Roll Eyes

Brady knows he's crap, Just listen to his post match interview yesterday...

He's had no other suitable senior replacement as Arnold is ALWAYS injured!

Neither keeper will be here next season thankfully...

Will be amazed & extremely disappointed if he's between the sticks v Sunderland, as it's a perfect opportunity to play our promising youth players, rather than any players who won't be with us next season.

We'd have been better signing off Phil Mitchell.
The guy was an imposter. I cant believe we didnt engineer a way of bringing in an emergency loan, as others have already said.

Exactly - yes certainly a costly mistake sticking with him but interesting how fans who will sympathise with the very sad Lee Collins scénario will still give individual players continued dogs abuse with little thought to long term effect.

Did I miss something in the Lee Collins situation - I’m pretty sure that he wasn’t getting abuse from fans over his performances? Unless Mitchell reads the Hotel End I think he’s unlikely to even know that supporters are giving him stick? Most if not all of the criticism is about his lack of ability and mistakes, none of it has been personal to my knowledge?

On line abuse is in the headlines this week so I’m not going to weigh in.

That said  .... don’t think Mitchell is that awful it’s just that normally sides have another half decent keeper on the bench to keep their number one sharp.
We’ve had nothing for months so no matter how many awful games he has he was always on next weeks team sheet. I think the poor lads confidence needed a bit of protection.
All that said, I don’t want to see him back for next season. A year loaned out into the Conference might see his confidence back?

Even with all the moans that Mitch attracts it doesn’t need a brain surgeon to conclude that he’s not the reason we’ve been demoted after one season - look at the goals for column and then look at how many goals have been from “strikers”? With one half decent striker in the side we would have finished several places above the drop and all Mitch’s errors would have been forgotten!
