An indication Westwood is off?

I’m sure if we were close to agreeing a deal with Westwood he would have been involved yesterday. Bruce has always tried to play his strongest eleven since he’s been here. 

 

Huge shame as I don’t think Dawson or Wildsmith are anywhere near his level.

He is probably keeping his options open incase Westwood turns us down. 

No need to play Westwood now.

 

But I will be very surprised if we are not doing all we can to keep him.

Be interesting to see what transpires, and whether or not Bruce has genuine interest in French keeper Beunardeau.

Na not really this is standard practice 

 

nothing to play for only pride have a look at your fringe players in a competitive match 

 

I’m sure one of Bruce’s priorities will be kicking off next season with Westwood number 1

I think more likely to be looking into who he sends out on loan or keeps as back-up to Westwood as they have already said they want to keep him.

Bruce has kept going for the play offs up until it wasn’t possible. He’s said this all week and confirmed this was the mentality ahead of kick-off. Westwood plays if he isn’t going in my opinion.

Standard practice these days.

 

Preston played a keeper they haven't played all season yesterday.

 

Always happens this time of year, and whilst we were mathematically in the hunt it was a long shot which has been reflected in his recent teams. Why do you think Lee was in the side yesterday? If we was in top 6 he wouldn't have been there yesterday.

If Westwood does leave which would be a massive mistake we would need to bring in a new number one keeper because over a season for me Dawson isn’t good enough to be first choice just yet.

I really hope he stays, but if not Bruce has to ensure we get a new number 1. Dawson is nowhere need good enough.

This 

 

its not a criticism Dawson needs to go out and be number one for a season else where

 

Rotherham for their promotion bid next year maybe 

 

go earn your stripes young man

Westwood will be offered a new contract and he will be our goalkeeper next season. I’m 95% certain of this.

I've been an advocate of Dawson.. but I can well see what Westwood gives us.

 

I'm of the mind to prioritise him now.

An indication Westwood is off?

Or an indication that some of our fans are very much glass half empty types?

 

lol

Makes sense for Bruce to have a look at what he's got, then strengthens his resolve to keep Westwood for at least another year. 

 

Suggests more about Dawson perhaps than Westwood, if Bruce wants to see other options..

Isn't this like the first cuckoo of the year?  

 

It will be FF next.

We can’t stand back and let him leave. Be a massive kick in the balls if he goes to a fellow Championship club.

If he thinks Huddersfield is a better place to be than Hillsborough then cheerio pal and thanks for the memories.

I don't know why, but I just had a look at a piggy fan site S2 4SU.

 

Some of their punters (not sure I've spelt that right) fancy Westwood at the stain.
