having seen them for the 1st time today that first Hull goal is ridiculous.

Indefensible isn’t it? Harder to let it in than save it. He was in line with the ball. Definitely needs to be dropped. We cannot have a paper bag in goal at this point of the season. For whatever reason he’s lost the plot and must be benched.

Second goal I agree he could have done better with.  The first goal was a screamer, which isn’t clear from the video.  No-one would have stopped it.

You're joking. Any decent keeper would've stopped it. Awful goalkeeping.

If people notice... their Goalkeeper  was at fault with all three of ours !
Goalies ay...who'd love em .  :)


Who cares about opposition goalkeepers? They are not our problem. We need to look after ourselves. We need to be better than the rest not just as crap.

Was sat half way between where the ball was struck and the goal.  It was a really good strike and I maintain that any keeper would have struggled. Agree it looks different on the replay, but it was struck really well.

It wasn't top corner, it wasn't bottom corner. It should've been saved, it was perfect height for a keeper. Johnstone just completely misjudged it, opened his arms wide and was left flapping at thin air. Do you think Foster would've let that in? Not a chance.

For what its worth the 5 live reporter said it was a wonder strike, the telly can be misleading.

Brendan Foster would have saved it.
Bond has to come in now, could just be the difference.

I would've brought Bond in games ago. Every keeper makes mistakes but the amount of goals Johnstone is gifting teams is just ridiculous. It's hard, near impossible to defend.

I thought it was a worldie at the time from my view in the Smethwick

Then I saw the footage whilst sitting in Costa Coffee

Poor goalkeeping.

It wasn’t even near the corner which makes it worse - the ball went straight through his flapping hands

From the rear of the Smethwick it looked after. Most people around me couldnt work out how it's gone in  looked even worse on TV.

Wasn't tested that much from what I heard.

Played every game, had about 2-3 good ones, and looks shot of confidence. If we get a decent offer this summer I'd sell him.

In fairness the 2 against Hull were indefensible, BUT yesterday he made a couple of very good saves, 1 in particular was excellent (2nd half flying tip around the post, looked in all the way), their player who shot was mortified. He is very inconsistent but hopefully that gets better with age / experience, and not having the woeful Bartley in front of him

Was that the free kick?

He turned into in a good save having taken his initial steps the wrong way.

He did well to recover to tip it round the post.

Brendan Foster would save every shot without moving an inch, hasn’t that man piled on the weight (btw he’s just about the worst sports commentator ever).

Anyway, can’t see Shan risking a goalie change at this stage of proceedings.
