I've seen Guzan play quite a bit. His positioning is decent, he's incredibly acrobatic, but his distribution is still lacking and he can't marshal his back line as well as he should. He would have significantly more shutouts this year if AV could actually defend. He's good, better-than-average, but probably not world class. Additionally, definitely not better than Howard, for now... in my opinion.


AVFC says it well. Guzan with the ball at his feet does not inspire confidence, which leads to hoofing it long and ceding possession as opposed to building from the back. I also think he's a bit unreliable in terms of his handling and his decision making when compared with the top goalkeepers. Still a decent #2 though.

Am I the only one who thought Guzan looked pretty shaky today? I never thought Vlaar, Senderos and Hutton would actually be effective. And regarding Cameron, Bardsley isn't good enough to replace him, in my humble opinion.

Well it is the first game thankfully. I wouldnt worry about Guzan. He had no world cup games just training and then break. I mean Everton tied to Leicester City a team that will prob be relegated unless im missing something. Also all home team didnt get one win except for arsenal barely in the last minute. Agree on Bardsley.

Brad's distribution was terrible, and it always has been. However, brad is a great shot stopper, which is what will keep him between the posts atm.

If we were to talk about Tim Howard, I would have said the same things above. Although Tim's shown us an uncanny ability to be out of position on shots, while providing super human reflexes.

Couldn't do much to prevent the QPR goal.

On another note Brad Friedel is calling the game with Martin Tyler

Wow, definitely a career waiting for him if he doesn't want to coach when he retires...great article and pretty insightful into the thought processes of The Goose.

I feel like this is Villa's year for the drop, though I also said it the last two years as well. If they do get relegated, where do we see Guzan ending up? Playing in the Championship or making a move? I can't say I've seen very many keepers move after relegation, nor do I think he is a good enough commodity to look for a switch to a better club.

Seeing Given play in FA cup action, he definitely is an adequate back-up, if not better than Guzan. Villa may want to cut some wages if they do go down.

Man i give you props for being a villa fan although I'm a big Guzan I must say it sucks knowing Aston Villa will never win the Epl or make a Champions league in our lifetimes.

Villa is a big club regardless. Many clubs have gone down all the way to league one recently like Southampton or Leicester. Just depends on how the restructuring occurs.

I prefer Sean Johnson to Brad Guzan anyway.

So does JK talk Howard into playing in the knock-out stages of GC if Guzan has played his last game this season? Guzan screwed up last week but Givens did today. Does Villa switch back?

I didn't think that Given was at fault for either goal. He has looked great in their cup run. Right now I rate him higher than Guzan. I honestly think that Guzan may not be good enough to take over the national team duties from Howard.
