Brown wants to be Number 1!

Brown wants to be Number 1!

What can this man do. When Brad Friedel was at the top of his game as the Rover's Custodian, Jason Brown battled away, taking his chances in the cup's when they came, and the odd taste of Premiership football. On his debut, he saved a penalty. The next game, he saved another penalty.

Brad Friedel left, Paul Robinson came in. The wait continue's for the Welshman, however, he was given another shot in the cup, and what did he do, saved a vital penalty....

Many would ask for a transfer, other's would sit and just cash in, however, Jason Brown still fights on, hoping he get's his shot as the Rover's Number one.

Brown told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph

'It is frustrating, because as a goalkeeper there is only one position. It is always disappointing not being in the team. I wouldn`t be a good professional if it was otherwise.'

It's a friendly rivalry between Brown and Robinson. With both also hoping to reclaim their number one jersey's for their countries, they push each other to the limit's, with Robbo knowing one poor game, and their is a ready made replacement.

Credit must also go to Goal Keeper coach Bobby Mimms. Allardyce tells the LET

'The technical side of goalkeeping coaching is what Bobby Mimms is very good at, hic coaching of starting positions, distribution etc. He has taken both lads on to another level'


Unfortunately for Browny, barring injury or suspension to Robbo, the wait just might have to continue....

I saw him play in the league against newcastle last year and i thought he was impressive esp. dealing with the high ball which i think is robbo's main weakness. The biggest complement i can give him is that i would not be worried if robbo got injured as i think brown would do a very good job

As a former collegiate goalkeeper, I'm always watching the man between the sticks with a critical eye. Brown is consistently good, but Robo is showing form as of late. Quite contrary to the start of last season when he was lacking confidence and missing early saves. That said, he's still most comfortable staying back on his line and trusting his reflexes to get him in front of the shot. He's clearly not comfortable claiming high balls or 50-50 balls outside his 6 yard box. It may be my bias, but none of the current UK-born PL keepers strike me as great in those situations (Robo, Green, Given, James, Foster, etc).

I echo a7081543 by saying that if robbo gets injured I have every confidence that Browny would do a good job - his attitude is awesome as well. He uses the rejection as motivation and that should be commended.

I think we're lucky to have Brown as back-up, he is a good shot stopper and penalty master! However, I think his kicking is not the best.. still as you guys have said if Robbo couldn't play, I'd be more than confident in Brown
