Roberto has form for bad days in the office

Roberto is not new to press scrutiny on his performances.  Five years ago he was slammed for his performance in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid.

Five years ago to the day the then Olympiakos keeper let in four goals in a Champions League performance that was described as awful.

The Metro reporting on the game at the time said “We have all had bad days at the office but spare a thought for Olympiakos keeper Roberto who has had a total shocker. Indeed the gloves men produced such as awful howler during the Champions League match with Atletic Madrid that people accused him of match-fixing on twitter and the internet”

During the game played on 26th November 2014 Roberto, under pressure in his own penalty area, passed straight to an Atletico player who setup Raul Garcia to score the easiest goal of his life.

Despite this checkered history, Roberto was put forward as West Ham’s number one keeper last summer before Fabiaksi was signed.

  1. Seriously every corner or cross coming in to are penalty area at the minute has a 85% chance of going in the back of the net with this guy in goal!!
    I wonder if he has ever kept a clean sheet?
    It wouldn’t surprise me if he has to borrow fabianskis gloves every game because doesn’t own a pair the fraud!!

    • He actually kept a clean sheet against Newport County in our League Cup match earlier this year, but that could have been his first and last time and going by his games since I could well be right…😀
