Goalkeeper is not a position that you can allow someone to grow into, no other play is going to be able to mop up mistakes like if Baker or Penney make a mistake. Nothing he did tonight put confidence in the defence, looked certain to fumble and makes wrong decisions such as punching a floating ball right to a player on the penalty spot. He will be a first team regular in the future but currently he isn't ready to be a starting championship goalkeeper. Everything he does installs a shoot on sight attitude to attackers minds and this is causing shots to be taken like tonight that turn into goals. If he had looked steady on handling,short stopping and distribution you could argue their goal tonight the shot may not have been taken if he hasent looked so obviously out of his depth and lacking the ability to be assured in his work in goal.

Looked very shakey tonight, doesnt seem to shout much and it nearly cost us an own goal.

Makes decent saves though and I still see him becoming a really decent keeper but tonight he was pretty dodgy and when you have a keeper like that the defenders seem to make rash decisions too.

Offnight ?

He's a young lad that needs some encouragement.

 

He didn't have a good game, but cut him some slack and allow him to mature.

FFS can people just forget about Westwood! He will never play for this club again.

No we didn't 

So we didn't miss the goalscorer who was sat on Aston Villa deep lying midfielder harrying into mistakes, winning ball high up the pitch,  carrying it with pace and setting up numerous breakaways.

 

Tell u what that Kitch fella would not have had freedom of park to dictate the game if we'd have played Matias.

What did he do wrong?

Decision making,  going for the wrong balls, flapping, short balls out (probably Jos's suggestion), etc.

 

I'm sure you can see he didn't have a great game, but he's a real assett for the future. It's not what he did wrong tonight,, but what he's done right recently.

He did alright. Handling wasn’t razor sharp but didn’t cost us anything.

 

Theres more flapping in this thread than happened in his box.

Getting slapped by one of their "fans" must have been playing on his mind.

 

He's ok and is progressing.

He let one goal in which every goalie would have failed to save other than that did nothing but be professional. What's the problem?

Westwood would have saved it,,,,,with both hands.....caught it, done an instant forward roll on landing and pinged a 50 yard ball straight to Fletcher, run up to the half way line to collect a return pass, beat 5 of their defenders and curled one in to the top corner to put us 2-0 up

Had a nervy game last night. More by luck then judgement only let one in which he had no chance with.

Be interesting to see how he responds v WBA if selected.

Funny there were no threads like this after westwood went down like a sack of spuds 4 times against the pigs. Some of his performances were down right shocking last season. Nowt like owls talk for hanging a player out to dry.

Yes but tonight repeatedly flapped at crosses, missed punches and fumbled shots ... Need experience of Westwood especially behind such a shaky defence... ZERO clean sheets in 10 league games is shocking 

BS

We need to let West Brom know they’re nothing special if they score next week!

 

“We concede every week,

we concede every weeeeek,

you’re nothing special,

we concede every week”.

I think the question is, do we need to give a young player the whole season and dropping them in at the deep end or are we better off rotating a bit. Wildsmith has had good games here and Westwood too.

Dawson is work in progress and he's doing ok 

The main concern is Forestieri..

All at Sea no skill tonight 

Looking for nothing but fouls n set pieces 

Not a 90 minute player at the moment ..

We played with 10 men tonight. He is not our best player he's got to be an impact player for us ..

The team is more important than the individual. ...

 

This must be a wind up. FF ran and worked his socks off tonight; the issue was midfield and the lack of creativity, movement and control

For me is nowhere near good enough, can't command his defence, can't judge a cross, makes terrible decisions 

Agree-flaps, does not command his area and is often caught out of position. Good prospect but we need to look again at the KW situation with a view to bringing him back in.

With experience he will become a good keeper his shot stopping is already up there. Makes me nervous in other areas especially at crosses. When coming you either catch it or punch it to halfway and take the strikers head off with it but he seems to flap it back to danger. Could have cost us 3 goals last night.
