“Poor old Nige”

published 26/01/2001

ProExperienced and usually reliable

ConsFailed to shine given the opportunity

Nigel Martyn has had to sit in the shadow of David Seaman as far as international football goes, for the last few seasons. Unfortunately for him, as Seaman continues to age yet further and has reached the ripe old age of 37, and is fading from the international scene, he injures himself taking a...

“Sorry Martyn but...”

published 26/08/2000

ProSolid - has very good games sometimes

ConsAgeing compared to Wright/James, Leeds player

Richard Wright and David James seem much better replacements. Okay, they are erratic but they are fun to watch and are younger than you. Seaman will never be between the sticks by 2002 - we hope. Not that he is bad keeper, and he used to fantastic, but personal and ageing problems have lead to...

“Forever Number 2”

published 07/03/2004

ProTalented keeper

ConsAlways in the shadow of others

Nigel Martyn was born on 11th August 1966 in St. Austell, just weeks after England’s famous World Cup victory over West Germany. It was in August 1987 that Martyn got his first taste of professional football, at Bristol Rovers. In the two years he was at Bristol Rovers, he notched up an...

“Right place wrong time”

published 26/01/2001

ProConsistent, safe, reliable

ConsSometimes makes boo boos

Nigel Martyn is so unlucky - just as Mr Pony Tail is out for a while and the field is clear to establish himself clearly as England's number one number one, he gets a freak injury from taking a goal kick and misses months and months - bet he's kicking himself (or at least he would if he could...

“Future?.....too old”

published 28/10/2000

ProAgile

Constoo old

I find it strange that we are saying that Nigel Martyn, who is over 30 years old is the future of England's goalkeeping position. He is a very good goalkeeper, but that blunder against Romania which threw away our lead will stay with him forever. He has good distribution and is very agile...

Progood goalie

Consage

Nigel Martyn has been injured for some this season, but he in my mind has the credentials to replace David Seaman as England number one goal keeping choice. He has the ability, athleticism, and has been playing in a side that has been gaining valuable experience by playing in Europe. I think that...

“Oh Dear Oh Dear Oh Dear”

published 24/06/2000

ProSome good shot stopping

ConsIndecisive and poor positional sense

So Nigel Martyn is the replacement for David Seaman? I have to say he may have had a good season for Leeds a couple of years back but in the couple of games I have seen him play for England he looks totally out of his depth. His poor placement and indecisive, ineffective punch had a large part to...
