With reports that there’s interest from England and Italy in Silvestri and that he may well leave, we have some possible replacements for him here.

1) Alex McCarthy –
Currently the third choice at Crystal Palace (I’m not sure how). He is a top quality keeper, we’ve seen that first hand ourselves, he’s the complete package, not just a shot-stopper like Silvestri, he commands his area extremely well and has no problem coming for crosses.



  1. Personally, I don’t want to see Marco Silvestri leave … I’d prefer to see the club sign two top quality CBs who know how to protect their GK. Silvestri has been exposed far too many times by poor defending and by all the CBs currently at the club … many seem to forget the number of times Silvestri has prevented routs.

    • Anybody who can actually catch the ball, will be a huge improvement on Silvestri and if he is allowed to stay at Leeds, as first choice goalkeeper for next season, then I will expect the same weekly mistakes and frailties in the Leeds penalty area, which have held back the football club from climbing the table. Silvestri may be a good shot-stopper, but anybody of any age, who are playing in a kick-about, can be a good shot-stopper and parry the ball, but being a reliable professional goalkeeper is all about dominating the penalty area and making a minimum of mistakes during the season and not making a costly mistake in nearly every game that you play in, like Silvestri does. Two new central defenders are desperately needed, but so is a new goalkeeper or expect another sacked Coach and another struggling, wasted season again, full of draws, if those crucial signings don’t happen.

      • ma credo sia opportuno che andiate a rivedere le partite degli ultimi due campionati con spirito sereno poi capirete quanto è forte silvestri in porta e in area, ha salvato un numero enorme di gol e fatto fare moltissimi punti alla squadra, è il portiere piu forte del campionato.Il problema è la difesa, totalmente inaffidabile e fragile.Fossi in voi spererei che silvestri restasse il portiere anche per il prossimo campionato, andrebbe sostenuto, non criticato per nulla da un piccolo numero di tifosi.se lo aiutate ad essere come a casa sua in italia certamente lo favorite anche nelle prestazioni.

  2. marco potrebbe giocare titolare in serie A in italia,molte squadre lo vogliono. Lui preferisce restare in inghilterra perchè ama il calcio inglese e la maglia del leeds.
    Quando, a breve, lo vedrete giocare in premier smetterete di criticarlo.
    devo dire che del ragazzo non avete capito proprio nulla.Per fortuna a pensarla così siete pochi pochi

  3. Ian Lawlor of Man City is on the last year of a contract. He went on loan to Bury from Feb of this year. His agent is involved in Leeds. He’s currently the Ireland Under 21 keeper. He could be worth a punt.

  4. Theres no doubting his ability to top shots but it would be nice to have any goalkeeper that could catch crosses and kick! Surely not too much to ask?!?
