We just look so solid again, fantastic. 

 

Absolutely baffling what was going through Jos's head. 

Thankfully that Fawlty Towers episode is over.

Just shows what a defence having confidence in their ‘keeper can do. 

 

Dawson needs a loan move to develop out of the spotlight. There is a good ‘keeper there; Westwood is simply better. 

 

This will just be reminding everyone that there is a top championship keeper available for free in January. Dawson may well be back between the sticks sooner rather than later.

Nailed it....

 

Nothing against Dawson - he will be great keeper - just not ready yet.

So much about what Jos did, was as if he had a death wish

It’ll be interesting if it ever comes out a few years down the line just what was going on. 

 

Anyway, he’s gone now and look at the difference it’s made already.

We've conceded four shots on target in the last two games.

In Dawson's last two games, we conceded eight shots on target. 

 

We've conceded 16 shots on goal in the last two games.

In Dawson's last two games, we conceded 27 shots on goal.

 

It's not just as straightforward as Westwood making the difference. Undoubtedly and empirically it helps, but anyone wanting to use this as an excuse to stick the boot into Dawson is just a wee bit sad and not looking at the bigger picture of a much tighter defensive shape. 


That's a fair point, but what's not measurable is how much difference Westwood's organisation and communication with the defenders has reduced the shots. I'm a big believer in Dawson's future but he seems to be a poor communicator.

I would hope that the first signing Bruce makes is Westwood to a year’s contract extension.

This isn’t just Westwood. Bullen has stopped the incessant playing out from the back philosophy. 

 

Westwood plus common sense = 2 clean sheets.

This may be the case, hope it isn't, can't be that many willing to pay a good fee for a goalkeeper mid-season when he will be available for free in 6 months so might be worth keeping him for the rest of the campaign even if he doesn't want or won't get a new deal.

 

Letting him rot and giving him his money for doing nothing for 12 months has been ridiculous.

Can't argue with that... part of the reason (if not the main reason) why Westwood between the sticks is empirically the better option it seems

Wonder where the fans are that were backing Jos over this? Still not heard from them since last week. 

They were probably at today's game. Best result in ages and you post that divisive rubbish. Well done, you are a superior supporter.

To be fair, I don’t remember seeing many fans backing Jos on this - no one I know did.

 

As someone else said baffling!

There were a good few, however today isn't a day for nit picking and bickering, today is a day for celebrating 3 great points.
