I think we have enough this season to avoid relegation whoever our keeper is  but next season will be a different matter so makes sense to give the two that will still be here as much experience as possible …..

We could have kept Westwood as our first choice keeper Dawson as number two and sent Wildsmith on loan. That makes more sense.

but then dawson wouldn't get the experience sat on his arse watching westwood for 46 games ……..if dawson can nail down the spot this season it will stand us in good stead for promises to be a very difficult season next year ……..course if do go with dawson and get relegated this season your right and i'm wrong but I don't think we will.

I would guess that if you added up the wages of both Dawson and Wildsmith they probably dont add up to even half of what Westwood earns.

 

And this is the only reason he is currently our 3rd choice keeper and on his way out of the club.

Dawson would then do the cup runs and come on if Westwood took a nock. 

I really think Westwood would have made a difference this season.

Injury ridden player whose best days are behind him.

 

Past reputations count for nothing,  where are the suitors for his signature.

 

Been a great keeper for us but now time to look to the future.

Ultimately I look at the whole situation like this. 

 

If Westwood is still here after the loan window closes and he is still told that he is our 3rd choice keeper. 

 

Then it will make £90 pound memberships and the signing of Urby Emmanuelson seem like good ideas.

Jos has lost the plot????

 

How many times does this need saying; to sink in with our fans.

 

ITS NOWT TO DO WITH JOS. WESTWOOD & THE CLUB FELL OUT IN JAN. PLENTY THAT KNEW THIS SAID THAT KW WOULDN'T PLAY FOR SWFC AGAIN. AND HE HASN'T. ITS NOWT TO DO WITH JOS & SELECTION.

 

 

100% true.

 

Everyone in this thread highlighting how strange the situation is without wondering what is the cause of the situation.

 

Westwood went missing last year when we had to call Dawson back from Chesterfield.

 

He's done it multiple times.

 

The club has had enough.

 

Do you want them to come out to the public and say 'yes, he's been causing unrest at the club. Now who wants to buy him'?

 

This is nothing to do with Jos. Nothing to do with having a buyer lined up. Nothing to do with Chansiri being weird.

 

This is fully the club enforcing rules to a senior player.

 

Believe me or don't believe me, I don't mind. Plenty of people on here know me and know I'm not a bullshitter.

So you believe Westwood feigned injury at a time when the club needed their senior players and this is okay? 

 

Exactly. A Senior player that we desperately needed. Why would the club not use him? Unless he made himself unavailable?

 

Westwood is no angel.

Done it multiple times? Such as? Why did he get a start at all in pre-season then?

 

No, the club is far better off stating that he is now 3rd choice behind 2 rookie keepers - that has hardly optimised his market value to us has it!

While i disagree with Jos as i think Westwood is still our best keeper i'm not overly concerned by his sticking with 2 keepers who have done really well for him and undoubtedly are the future for the club 

Westwoods injury came at the wrong time for him its unfortunate for him but thats football

Swimming against the tide on this thread but for what it’s eorth from first to last post you’ve made I think you’ve been spot on! 

 

Manager says he’s thinking of future, so let’s stop looking to the past or even the present. If there’s no way in hell that Westwood is here next term, why would we play him. It sacrifices a year of top level development to one of the young lads and for what? We won’t be pushing for promotion regardless of who’s in goal. 

Chansiri says it’s promotion or bust this season. Why shoot yourself in the foot not playing the best players. If it’s as bad as he makes out we’re screwed next season.

When? How many times has he played for Ireland when he has been unavailable for Wednesday? Multiple times you say.......

 

First one: http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2018/03/08/sheffield-wednesday-fans-react-as-injured-keiren-westwood-is-nam/

 

Why was he in the squad but unavailable to us?

 

It's really not rocket science.
