Jos saying that Westwood will only get a game in the event of Dawson and Wildsmith being injured etc and is now third choice

Says that the two young keepers have excelled in his time here, and deserve their chance, and that they are the future of goalkeeping at Sheffield Wednesday and that's why the decision has been made

 

Or does Westwood get paid an additional fee for playing? Is the an economic decision?

Wednesday fans are great, when Westwood was out injured for large periods of last season all the talk was about letting him go, he wasn't needed etc.  The minute he's fit then there is uproar that he's not playing.

 

Why do people also think that the decision not to play him has come from the top, he still gets paid whether he plays or not.  Maybe, just maybe it's as black and white as Jos says and he's going with youth and the future of SWFC.

This was most likely said in terms of Westwood being sold. We need to raise funds/reduce costs and Westwood is one of the obvious guys to move on, so having two excellent young GK's would soften the loss.

 

However, to not play him when he's fit and a Wednesday player is something completely different, and it seems pretty barmy to me.

He was playing injured last season imo

 

Find that hard to believe. Every time I've ever seen him get a knock he's either come off pretty much straightaway or not re-appeared after half time. Terry Butcher he most definitely ain't.

He played with a broken rib vs the Pigs ffs.

 

He basically spent half a season playing with injections in his ankle before every game when we got to the play offs, which is why he kept pulling out of the Ireland squads.

Spot on by Jos. Go with youth and long-term future of the club. Game time will make both keepers better. Westwood is a saleable asset and we apparently need to sell???????

A move to Stoke wouldn't make sense if Westwood wants first team football. 

Stoke already have two excellent goalies so he would be third choice at Stoke just as he is here. 

Wednesday will probably have to subsidise Westwood wages should he go out on loan as its highly unlikely that any club will pay a 33 year old third choice championship goalie at least 40 grand a week. 

Sadly Wednesday are doing another great career ruining job on yet another player. Westwood deserves better. Were it not be for him and forestieri we would never have made the play offs final. It was Westwood who got us into the play off semis against Huddersfield. 

Westwood is too good and been too good a player to be treated so shamefully. 

He's our best goalie. Play him

Exactly. Sell him or play him.

 

This banishing players, mystery injurys etc hasnt worked for 2 years. You'd think we'd learn.

 

Bang on the money. No problem with selling him, but either sell him or play him. He's currently our best keeper, so play him until he's gone, and let's stop with the player fallouts Mr. C. Please!

So he's been told he can't play him then.

 

Mr Chansiri appears to immature with age, he is just like a petulant parent managing his lad’s side, yes I said managing, as Jos certainly isn’t. :Chansiri:

I've seen him a few times on match days since he has been out of the side.

 

Last season when he was injured, yes.

 

This season since he's been frozen out, I don't know anyone who's seen him.

Plus friendlies. If he's actually 3rd choice he'd be at all the games warming up with the others. 

 

Perhaps he should have played more than 45 minutes in the friendlies if the manager is of the opinion that he hasn't seen enough of him in action? I didn't see Jake Kean warming up every week when he was 3rd choice keeper, just the 2 goalies in the squad and the GK coach. Maybe he has been at the ground? Or maybe he is not actually 3rd choice and has been frozen out?
