Aberdeen Still to Make Hladky Approach
Friday, 6th May 2022 10:14

Town are still to hear anything from Aberdeen regarding keeper Vaclav Hladky, TWTD understands.

The Czech has repeatedly been linked with a reunion with his former St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin at Pittodrie with the Dons’ boss having expressed his admiration for the 31-year-old when quizzed on his reported interest.

Hladky started the season as the Blues’ number one having been recruited from Salford City last summer, but spent most of the campaign on the bench following the arrival of Christian Walton, initially on loan from Brighton before signing a permanent deal in January.

The Brno-born keeper, who is contracted until the summer of 2024, has made only 14 appearances for Town, the most recent in Kieran McKenna’s first game in charge, the 1-0 victory over Wycombe in December.

Scottish reports have claimed the Blues will allow Hladky to leave this summer if they’re able to recoup the fee paid to Salford, however, we understand that’s purely speculative.

Interesting saga with the keepers. Hladky wants to be No. 1 somewhere, which is what you'd expect, but clearly he's not up for the challenge of competing with Walton. Holy (for me) is heading towards being a professional bench warmer somewhere (noted he'd dropped out of the first 11 at Port Vale) and clearly not rated enough to be considered backup with us. Not sure any of our reserve keepers are knocking on the door of the first team yet, so will be interesting to see who we get in. Do we get an older 'back-up / bench warmer', or someone to challenge Walton, who is undoubtedly going to be first choice and rightly so... Will we go down the season load route for a replacement? Interesting one.

Someone like David Marshall just released from QPR would be ideal.

Hladky is a wierd one, his stats for St Mirren and Salford look great, he's clearly a capable shot stopper but has never looked confident or commanding for us and has made errors. He probably needs a fresh start somewhere and as good as Walton has been, it would be better for us to have a keeper who can challenge him for the shirt.

Super Jim. The reason he's never looked confident for us, is the fact that cook was changing the defence in front of him every game. A keeper and his defence need to have an understanding with each other, which gives them their confidence. I'm certain had he played behind a more settled back 4( as it was under Cook), we'd have seen much more from him.

blues1 - exactly that. Hladky never had any defensive stability to build on.

Also maybe playing in front of good crowd's with high expectations was to much.
David James had problems at Liverpool after leaving Watford

We need a Laurie Sivell who was mainly a number 2 to Paul Cooper, however it seems that all keepers want the number 1 spot these days

I’ve honestly never really seen what the Club saw in Haldky . For me he looked totally overawed and out of his depth when he played for the first team. The Scottish club clearly wants him . Just hurry up and get it done .

Arniem. U don't see what the club saw in him? A keeper who kept 26 clean sheets the previous season. A keeper, who when he signed for salford, was wanted by Juventus. Having done well in Scotland.
