Just how short is Pym? He doesn't look like a keeper. To be fair to him he looked great in the playoffs and couldn't do much today but genuinely interested to know if he is as short as he looked.
My personal opinion is that he is 5'9". Many others will insist he's taller than that. Assuming he is 5'9", we've had some top keepers at that height, notably Richard Key and Len Bond, both City favourites.

I'm 5'11, nearly 6'0. Ive stood next to Christy. He's taller than me.
Ian Tarr, who's going on 6'0" said that on here a year or two ago. He stood next to Christy somewhere and said exactly the same. Pym was taller than him! It must be an illusion that he's considerably less than that. When he's stood on his goal line next to the post, the crossbar looks a hell of a lot further above him than 2'0"! Go figure?

I'm 6'4", Pym looks like a dwarf next to me.

For a midget (in goalkeeping terms) he's had a great season.

Hamon is a tall streak of a lad, sadly he is a shocking glovesman, one of the worst we have ever had.

Anyway: Any news on CP? Its been quite a while and I've detected no exeweb Pym rumblings. Are we to take it he'll be here for next season? Only I thought somebody said he wanted away if we didnt get promoted?

In all the pictures of the new kit I have not seen Christy Pym modelling the goalkeepers version , am I reading too much into this or have I just missed the photo ?
