Piggies got an excellent young keeper in on loan, it doesn't have to be Westwood for us and no other. I like him and would happily keep him, but on our terms not his.

 

In any event Dawson is capable enough, young and improving and I'm more than confident that Steve Bruce will do what  is necessary and right for the team, whatever that is.

Dawson simply isn't good enough.

 

He might be in the future, but right now he's not.

We have 4 bits of business to do, resign Westwood, Palmer and Lee, plus bring back Hector. Those are our priorities

The first and last are the most important and those are the two that worry me the most.

Our fans are morons. You have just watched the difference in upturn in defence form since he came back and yet still some say let him go. 

 

Just amazing. You couldn’t make it up 

 I doubt any supporters want westwood to leave and i'm sure bruce doesn't but the contract offer as to be on the clubs terms …..money is going to be tight for the foreseeable and giving in to players demands as got to be a thing of the past …

Wouldn't be surprised if Bruce went for Joe Hart.

Wouldn’t be against that. He’d be great at this level.

He’s shot, third choice at Burnley

I was being light hearted to be honest. Something you’re clearly unable to do.

 

Ogrizovic was working behind the scenes and I’m fairly sure he wasn’t keeping in any capacity any more.

 

Theres no way all the keepers you mentioned there were as good at their late 30s as they were in early 30s. Perhaps one or two and they all played for clubs able to afford to keep them around either way. There is also a list many times longer of keepers who haven’t got better as they go past 35 and they move down the leagues.

 

Its the unpalateable truth rather than moronic, but whatever makes you feel better.

I'm quite relieved Oggi isn't coming back to score against us again.

As is Martin Hodge.

No shame being behind Heaton and Pope. 2 outstanding goalkeepers in the PL. 

 

Hart probably has or has had ego issues but he’s running out of clubs to start for now. In my opinion he’d still be quality at this level though if Westwood did go my first choice would be Darlow.

I’d take Darlow over Hart, to be honest.

Don't understand why hed be "quality at this level"

He let's in goals that he could throw his cap on and that wouldn't change just because hes in the championship 

 

He reminds me of a poorer Chris woods in that he has far more England caps than his talent deserves

So has Pickford but he's still number 1. We rave about Westwood but he wouldn't get in most PL teams that's why he ended up with us but at championship level he's great. 

 

Hart would be sound with us but as mentioned in an earlier reply, I'd rather have Darlow if KW leaves.

Joe Hart will be on an absolute ton, are people genuinely serious thinking we`ll go after him?

If he wants 2 years we should be giving him that. His form was exceptional recently.

The look on Hodge's face was a picture!

 

The looks on the thousands of faces on the kop were somewhat different!

His form isn’t in question, his fitness perhaps is.

Spot on. He's never been the same since he was diagnosed with dandruff.

Darlow would be a good signing if Westwood goes, and if he returned to his top form he could also become Wales’ goalkeeper by the sounds of it. So not someone who would be looking for a free ride (cough, Abdi)
