I wouldn't begrudge Westwood moving to the premier league for one last pay day but failing that he's still the best in the league imo.

Tidman ?

 

The one with face that looked like he'd been smacked with a banjo ? (I forget his name)

 

The one we had on loan from Middlesbrough ?

 

We've had some right shiite.

Westwood, Wildsmith and Dawson.  3 brilliant goalkeepers. 

 

Personally, i think it's imperative we keep all three imo.  Just because our 2nd and 3rd choice have done a fine job for us, absolutely no doubt in that.  

 

I think, moving forward Westwood's experience could be invaluable to both Wildsmith and Dawson who still have some learning to do as they gain experience.  

 

A special mention to Andy Rhodes also, who I believe has been instrumental in getting us to where we are today with three top keepers who can hold their own when called upon.  

 

The way I see it, lets build on these foundations.

That's a decent list, you're right we've had some very good goalkeepers. I'd add Lee Grant & Scott Carson, both quality. 

 

I feel guilty about reminding you of Chris Adamson, Brad Jones & Ola Tidman. Jones was terrible, I remember at the time people were saying that Liverpool coached their keepers to punch rather than catch. Could have been that, could have been that he just couldn't catch... The list of quality keepers outweighs them though. 

 

The one I really felt for was Chris Stringer, looked a very good keeper and a character, genuine shame he had to retire.

Edit: Not sure why it didn't quote Treborowl's post, or wont let me edit my own post... Maybe it was Middlesborough who coached their keepers to punch, Jones went on to play for Liverpool bizarrely. 

Bradford City signed him a couple of seasons ago, a season ticket holding mate told me he was the worst keeper he's seen. I had tried to warn him.

We have some solid keepers. In past 15 years we've had:

 

Westwood

Wildsmith

Dawson

Kirkland

Weaver (twice!)

Bywater

Crossley

Lucas

Carson

Grant

Pressman

 

Some half-decent ones too like Turner, Price and Martinez. 

 

We've also had a few terrible ones too mind.

I think it's one area we've always been blessed; in my time 2 x Springetts, Grummitt, Hodge, Bolder, Pressman, Srnicek, Westwood, Woods, Turner, Lucas etc.

Brad Jones, Chris Adamson :picnic:

I’ve not seen enough of both yet to determine whose best. 

 

Its fantastic to have two quality keepers competing for the goalkeepers spot. Long may it last.

Both Dawson and Wildsmith are great young keepers, both have big futures ahead of them, I have to say Dawson edges it for me and I'd be surprised if he wasn't our next long term number 1.

Dawson for me , he has got a bit of swagger about him as well , also can kick well with both feet .

 

Heard he is not too shabby at golf also 

 

We could have a future England player on our hands there

For me, he'd be our starting keeper and I have an inkling that we'll see plenty of him and Wildsmith next season. I think you can tell that Jos rates "Cammy" highly. We have three keepers capable of playing in the starting 11, given our circumstances, something will give.

Must admit of the two I think Cammys the better allround keeper and I just feel more confident with him,nowt against JW,he needs to work on one or two things,and he will hes gained valuable experience this term,needs to look at his mistakes from this term and eradicate them.

Great to have two young keepers as good these,and young Thorniley,whose had a stormer today,kid played his nuts off against the league champs on their turf,bodes very well for next term.
