Westwood will be Off

Recommended Posts

I was told about 2 months ago by a mate who knows someone close to the goalkeeping set up at Hillsborough that Westwood had been told to find a new club at the end of the season. I think it would suit all parties especially if a deal with Celtic can be done as Westwood gets a move to a club that will win honours and the chance to play in Europe. Wednesday get a fee if possible which will help FFP and one of the larger wages of books. Westwood would leave with a massive thank you from all the fans and we have two excellent young keepers to compete to be number 1 next season. Also another young keeper coming through who has just been offered a new deal who maybe loaned out next season to get some 'mans' football.

It is idle speculation Rocket based on baseless assumptions.

 

Westwood is a top keeper while Wallace was never one of the best wingers in the league. Plus keepers have ability to play longer than wingers. He may go if we command a fee but he hasn’t got a chance under Jos due to injuries.

 

 

Have I missed something or have you discovered our Rhodes loving contributor hidden under his new username?

Reading Jos explanation on why Wallace has left, made me think Westwood days might be numbered too. Age is not on his side like Wallace.

 

I sincerely hop I am wrong, I think we have one last real shot of promotion with this group of lads and we need Westwood in the sticks. Another year development won't harm Wildsmith and Dawson. Send Dawson on loan and Wildsmith can play in the cups.

 

Does anyone else think Jos could use same method of thinking with Wallace and Loovens to Westwood?

Doesn't he have a contract with the club that will need paying up?  Surely would make more season for him to see out his contract and be available to play.  Why bring Celtic into it?  Why would they come to his rescue and the clubs by buying him for a large amount when they could get either of the other two keepers we have for cheaper?

Rather us sell Westwood on to raise funds than the likes of forestieri or Bannan

Personally think westy is a gonna sad to say as he has been the best keeper we’ve had in years, but with ffp hanging over us it’s probably for the best with the form of both wildsmith and Dawson and Dawson’s recent comments in media, he obviously knows something we don’t and with jos wanting younger players kind of fits with what we are trying to do

I can see Butland going to Liverpool 

 

yeah i agree. 

for a start both the scummers keepers are crap, secondly, Butland looks like a trampy chav who would fit in there.

 

He maybe needs to address his attitude to fit in though, i saw him admit blame for a mistake earlier in the season! 

kinda goes against the grain somewhat.

Poor old Rocket. 

 

Doesn't know the difference between an opinion and fact and can't even spell his own new username properly. 

 

It's Arcadian, you half wit.

 Could see him going to stoke when Butland leaves after their relegation. 

Weve got two quality young keepers and I don’t think it would hurt to reinvest his transfer fee. 

 

Yep Westwood + Rhodes to Stoke in £6m deal rising to £8m if they get promoted..  :ph34r:

Thanks for confirming that sij.  I must have missed the announcement on OT about the name change.

Ooooooooh, discussion over, guys.

 

He put 'Fact' at the end of his post. That trumps everything, even 'End of'.

I was a little bit torn on this. I’m not against him leaving if it free’s up money to be used on the team elsewhere that could benefit us more.

 

The big ‘if’ for me is can we keep him

fit, how is his body? Only the club insiders and medical people can answer that.

 

if we can keep him fit then I for one would like to keep him for next year. Yes I like Wildsmith and Dawson (who I think is the better keeper out of those 2). But let’s not forget Westwood is a top class keeper. He’s so assured and composed and lets face it is better than the young lads for now. I think a fully fit Westwood would be worth another 10 points over a championship season over the young lads.

 

if he does leave then we will be lucky to get a fee now anyway, so let’s keep him if we can (fitness levels and FFP permitting) and have a real push next year.

Westwood is still our best keeper by a mile but 3-4 million and I think I’d let him go.  Remember that whatever happens, we need 3 goalkeepers

I'd say anyone is up for grabs.

We're balancing the budget now...the first year shopping is over.

Jos gave everybody the truth at the press conference.

 

I'm amazed that people are still picking players they'd like to keep or let go.

Has he seen the teams in the championship? It’s full of clubs who said that when they got relegated.
