Very happy if it's the fella I remember from Lincoln. His kicks will make suffering through Collin's distribution seem worth it.

I would've thought a keeper able to boom it 75-80 yards was a prerequisite for the Cowleys.

Well we have one who can kick it 75 yards and one who can hoy it 75 yards :)
Going one end to other should be a bit quicker

Sounds like he's not at Carlisle as a back-up to Norman and that Beech wants two, league-ready keepers to fight for the jersey over the coming season. I get the impression that he felt Collin's performances dropped in part because he had no one to really challenge him for the number 1 spot.
David Holdsworth then probably had a lot to do with Furman coming to the club, it was Holdsworth who brought him into Lincoln City from Gateshead whilst manager there. He's definitely in the "All I want to do is play football" camp, he was settled at both those clubs and could have stayed but decided on moves away each time once he was in and out of the team.
There's an interesting, extended interview with him on the D3D4 '30-minutes with....' series of podcasts, which was recorded and broadcast just last month. Described Holdsworth as a "great guy who really looked after me"!

Only 2 games in but I’m not impressed at all.

Against fleetwood he spilled a shot that should have resulted in a goal, he was weak on the second goal.

Today he let 2 shots go right through him the 3rd goal in particular being embarrassing, there were also a couple of dodgy moments with his handling, one where like fleetwood he spilled a shot that should have been routine, fortunately this time no one followed up.

He doesn’t seem to have any command of his area, shits himself when a cross or set piece is put in or near his 6 yard box, often stays routed to his line. I actually suspect his panic and hesitation is causing mass panic amongst the back 4, hence someone switching off on the first goal.

Well a lof of fans wanted rid of Collin and got their wish. Fryer looked a promising keeper first time round but was just as bad in that pre-season friendly where he was culpable for 3 or 4 goals in a game but so far I have to agree on Farman's performances so far.

He doesn't look up to the required standard so far.

At the minute he looks like an upgrade on Collin by some considerable distance.

There's room for improvement on crosses and the command of his area.

However, he's a decent shot stopper and his kicking and distribution is probably the best I can remember from a Carlisle goalkeeper.

After a shaky start, to recover with three clean sheets and a penalty save is creditable.

Yeah after a dodgy start he’s beginning to look a lot more assured. The errors seem to have disappeared and his kicking is excellent.

Norman had a bit of a dodgy debut the other night but hopefully if he gets a few more appearances he’ll start to look the part and will push Farman for the starting position.

Definite improvement in his last couple of games

I'm still not entirely convinced and as said further up his command of his 6 yard box needs improvement, especially aerially.

We've had a lot worse. And as mentioned his long kicking is a hell of a plus.

A few weeks ago, Lummy and JP were debating who were the most important players in the team - and the most obvious answers were of course Callum Guy, JJ Kayode etc

For me though our unsung hero is Farman. His distribution is the platform for the entire way we play. The pressing game in the final third mostly comes from his clearances / goal kicks - versus last season when Collin could barely reach the half way line.

The contrast of the Exeter keeper yesterday couldn’t have been more stark - his distribution was woeful. Farman gets us up the pitch - and with the quality we now have in attack in midfield, we keep the ball there and dominate teams.

His actual goalkeeping is improving steadily too - I like the way he came for crosses yesterday, catching when he was confident enough, but choosing to punch when he wasn’t.

He is absolutely pivotal to our style of play - and as such would be up there for one of my players of the season so far

Yes, his distribution has been absolutely superb - Allison-esque at times and he seems to get more confident every time you see him play.
It's hard to judge him as a shot stopper as he faces so few of them! Can't be a team in the league who has so few efforts on target against them.

Good point on his keeping improving. You just need to listen to any beech interviews and there is a clear recurring theme of improving players and coaching. Beech is doing a fantastic job and key to this is his focus and willingness in identifying potential and polishing into diamonds through coaching

His distribution is unreal for this level. Great distance and accuracy. No wonder we're so direct when we have an asset like that. I was very critical of him after a few games before I really saw what he could offer. He's probably (for me) the unsung hero of the season so far

To be honest I thought that Magnus Norman was brought in as No 1 but was injured pre season. Well done Farman for making the shirt your own.

I'm of a mind his long kicking is more of a handicap than a help.

First off, we've barely got a centre-forward who can win a header. Then, more often than not, we end up giving possession of the ball away.

I'm not advocating we do the tippy tappy stuff in the penalty area all the time but he should throw the ball out more and mix it up. Incessant hoofing is bringing us the same results as the Kayode long throw.

You've a point about his kicking, although I prefer his to Adam Collin's.

To be fair I noticed Farman rolled it out more on Tuesday than previously.

Maybe Beech has been reading the forum lately, as he is doing what fans have been saying to do. e.g change the team.

If Farman wasn't very good, then either Norman is worse or Beech's judgement of ability is poor. And hey, let's not rule out the possibility of both.

Bit of a miss, had a good season and probably one of the better keepers we've had since Westwood. His kicks were very effective. I'm sure the big Norwegian stopper Magnus will step in and fill his shoes with ease.
