Wasn't his best game for sure and he did almost cost us but was saved by Ajayi and the post.

But criticising him for tipping a 25 yard free kick onto the post is a bit extreme.

The standards we hold him to are getting a bit stupid. First poor game in months

Totally agree. Some of the comments relating to his display on Saturday are well over the top in my view.

Such as?

Great quick thinking for the Pereira goal but I thought he waved his handbag around a couple of times on Saturday, good job he wasn't called into any serious action to be honest. Not seeing any over the top comments though.

Okay..... I saw the word awful used in one summing up. I don't think he was awful at all. I will repeat that its all about opinions but this particular player seems to have people queueing up to wait for errors.

Oh right, sorry, thought you were talking about good comments. Apologies.


He wasn't at his finest but certainly does not deserve to be called awful.

As you were  ;D

and you are right, there are posters on here who cannot wait for him to make an error which is sad really.

Thanks mate, that's made my day as I left West Bromwich and the black country for the North West 16 years ago!

Just rumours but apparently we are happy to him go for £7.5 million with Leeds, West Ham and Spurs interested according to the Athletic.

Yes a year left on his contract but seems very very low. Didn't we buy him for 5 million? A solid prem season under his belt and an England call up and we will make a 2.5 million profit. Jesus wept

One year remaining on his deal with his stock at the highest it will ever be.

I don't think its a bad deal otherwise we risk losing him for nothing next summer.

I don't think we're in a much of a bargaining position to be honest.

Would have liked 10m myself but lets see what happens. Just need 2 teams interested to drive the price a little higher.

I did say...  8)

Anyway, I'd be happy with any profit for him. Need him to finish the season and his Albion career strongly to allow us to cash in at all. He didn't do himself many favours at the weekend in that respect.

For once his flaws were overshadowed at the other end, let's hope it was a post England call up blip as he has been very good of late. As you say just needs to finish with a flourish.

Daft question but, if 3 clubs already "interested" doesn't that increase his value?

When you look at the 3 clubs, I'd argue he only really stands any chance of being no. 1 at Leeds. Hence the price,  homegrown back-up. Fabianski and Lloris are in a different league, if those keepers moved on in summer and SJ was the replacement I don't think it would go down at all well especially at Spurs.

Can’t see many clubs where he would walk in and be No1. Most of the bigger clubs seem pretty settled in that position, so to the likes of Villa , Wolves , Palace . The more you go down the list the harder it becomes to see who is going to be  willing to pay a large fee for a GK

Spurs plan to move Lloris on.  Pope is their first choice replacement apparently but they aren't confident.  SJ is their second choice.

Rumours that Leeds have been interested all season.  They aren't happy with their young French keeper. West Ham's apparent interest has only just arisen but it seems that they plan to sell Fabianski and Rice to raise funds to buy SJ and Lingard.  According to my West Ham contact anyway.

"Awful" was the word you used I think. An overstatement of course.

Mine was a very fair appraisal in the context of the actual sentence I posted...

Meanwhile, back to the subject. Sams stock was low. It’s now higher. Do they stick or sell? Depends on whether they have a plan.

My pennies worth for what it is - 7.5m seems cheap, English goalkeepers and strikers in particular seem to attract higher fees, especially with regards to the number of Nationals needed to complete squads in the Euro competitions. Didn't Citeh sign Carson because of this. I'd be disappointed with less than 10m irrespective of how long left on his contract.

Does an England call up increase his value? I'll bet it never increased Livermores stock.
I'd happily take £7.5m for Johnson.

He wasn’t awful at all. I think 7.5m, if true, is way too low. Let’s wait and see.

Agreed, £7.5m doesn't buy you much these days. £10m minimum and ideal £15m is more reasonable IMV.
