With respect I don't agree with that. Twitter is full of loons and people who shouldn't be given a platform to speak - but they do, and other people read it and get offended, which is counter intuitive for me.

 

Back to your comments, I can understand your overall desire for this to be put to bed, but KW's statement has opened a can of worms.

 

As these so called fans that pay his wages, we need to understand the issues here and find out why KW is 'gone' and 'now out of the first team picture'.

 

Just accepting it is nonsense, as the guy will be sat at home essentially pulling a wage for 18 months whilst we hit the FFP breach wall.

 

Thought he explained it in his message, it was for footballing reasons. Monk obviously sees Dawson as his number 1 and wants to free up the high wages of his now number 2 goalkeeper.

I’ve met SIJ and I can confirm he’s not a pig.

Makes sense seeing that Udders then signed their ex keeper Lassel from Everton on loan right at the death on deadline day . 

I seem to remember being called a lot of names for offering a insight into a conversation with Westwood from someone who is a family member, Sometimes a few people are far to quick to judge! If you have any information on a situation, would you put it out on here ? I wonder, have you ever thought as I do after reading his (Westwood’s ) post he wanted the fans to know he wasn’t in the plans anymore.

Genuine question , do you not think saying it’s people who shouldn’t be given a platform is just brushing it under the carpet ??   It’s an issue that needs dealing with,  we can say don’t pay attention to it all day long but it doesn’t get rid of the issue does it 

 

With KW I just genuinely think it’s an attempt from himself to draw a line under it and try and get fans to back the team, and I respect that , knowing all the ins and outs is all well and good but we all know that’s not how football works and it’s probably no benefit to anyone to wash dirty laundry in public

No - I'm sorry, it's not obvious to me, but you're explanation is entirely possible.

 

Problem is why did this go on for the month of January, and yet Westwood's still here; still sat at home, and still pulling £20k for nothing.

CIVIL

 

In a capacitive (C) circuit the current (I) leads the voltage (V). In an inductive (L) circuit the voltage (V) leads the current (I).

 

Just keeping it civil.

I don't think the statement says he won't ever play for us again, granted it does seem unlikely but I wouldn't be that surprised to see him between the sticks again at some point.

 

Always been a big fan of Westwood whilst he's been here but this season his form has dipped and I'm not surprised that Monk has made the decision he has.  Confident that Dawson will be a success and in years to come will be held in the same high esteem as Westwood.

 

I'm pleased that Westwood has called out the trolls and that we as fans when we hear rumours will make some attempt at fact checking before accepting as gospel.  At the end of the day we are harming our club if we give them any credence.

You don't go from number 1 to having a discussion with the manager and then having no part to play in his plans, especially with 1.5 years still left to run on a contract. At the very least the manager would be saying he is giving someone else a run but there would still be an expectation to sit on the bench as a no. 2.

National governments can't agree how to control these media outlets, so the likes of football clubs haven't got a pray. If people get offended by idiots then don't participate - until proper regulation happens, it's as simply as that.

 

KW hasn't drawn a line under this; he's moved it on to another level. I don't think the club would have sanctioned that statement, as it paints Monk and the club in a bad light. To suggest Westwood and Monk came to an amicable agreement that Westwood, our no 1 keeper in the Summer, is essentially finished at the club due to a bit of bad form, and we all accept it is frankly crazy.

Guys... 

 

Can the little digs at others please stop? From all sides.

 

If you have an issue with somebody just put them on ignore and move on. 

 

Cheers.

Stuff has gone on between players and the club, some of these have been given new contracts despite these occurrences.

 

Strange now we've gone back to self banning players

So why hasn't Monk come out and made a statement saying they shook hands, no falling out etc etc?

 

Westwood's statement is clever. It just makes Monk look even worse.

 

I know who I believe.

Think Westwood goes out of his way not to put the club in a bad light.  Even to the point of praising DC and his family.  He just wants it to be known that he has no axe to grind with anyone and asking fans not to listen to unfounded claims.

And that's the problem, it get's us to ask more questions, that we do have a right to know the answers. The statement is intentionally ambiguous IMO.

Good grief do we need constant updating on every little detail of what goes on at the club?  Are we that needy?  Should we have an embedded poster at the club constantly updating on all the rumours?

I don't agree - the statement is important in what it doesn't say. You can't simply shrug your shoulders and say, that's all right then. I don't care whether Westwood has an axe to grind or not. I want to know why he's not on the bench ahead of our 3rd choice U23 keeper. No one's answered this yet.

No.

 

Didn't say that.
