I suppose he’s brought our opinion of him down so low that even the little things seem impressive these days.

It’s a small step in the right direction I suppose, but there’s still a long way to go.

There was a lot of talk leading up to the game whether or not Kiko Casilla would even be able to play against Reading given the impending decision of his court case, but with no news coming through, that meant that he was free to don his gloves and jersey for the game.

And the Spaniard managed to keep a crucial clean sheet during Leeds’ win, which included a couple of important saves. However, there was one save towards the end of the game that has got a lot of people talking.

With Liam Moore bearing down on goal, Casilla rushed out to narrow the angle and make what was an important stop if not an impressive one. Despite Bryn Law and Tony Dorigo’s best attempts to try and sensationalise it, it seems as though a large swathe of the Leeds United fan base weren’t the least but impressed.

Has Casilla now turned his fortunes around?

Yes, hopefully

Yes, hopefully

No, not yet

No, not yet

As a former goalkeeper myself, I have to say that it was pretty much goalkeeping 101, so you won’t get a lot of hype about it from me.
