Wonder if Palmer is going to be the No.2 or if we're going to sign another goalkeeper

Never seen Palmer play but I've heard others say he doesn't look ready for the first team.

Not too concerned with the No.2 because we're in The Championship and can still use the loan window. Something I'd not thought of until now.

Johnstone though is a great signing in my opinion. One of, if not the, best keeper in The Championship last year. 22 clean sheets is an impressive effort.

Currently Foster is still number 1  :) ;)


I'd have preferred Danny Ward at the price but this looks like a promising signing. Welcome Sam.

I can't say that I've seen him play, but he seems to be rated highly by a lot of people, so this goes down as an excellent signing. Unfortunately, we need lots more of them in the next few weeks!

Welcome to The Baggies Sam.

No mention of Fozzie in any of the press releases or the introduction of the new keepers kit. SJ is clearly our new No 1 (now we just need a backup)!

Welcome Sam😂
Clearly the first thing he should do is come on here and see how many welcomes he's got.
I do find some of the comments interesting
"He knows the area",if this is the goal area..good, he should, that's his job...if it's the local area...what in Gods name difference, does that make?
Followed by
"He will be here for 10 years because he's young", unfortunately if he's here for ten years it will be because he's not good enough for the next level

Can't say I'm over the moon if this is the reason for Foster's problem. I'll give the bloke a chance but he's got to be a helluva keeper to better Foster, also for Foster's standing and leadership in the team.

I'd suggest his knees are in much better condition than fosters

The one thing I'm looking forward to hopefully is a keeper who's good with his feet aswell as his hands. If we are going to change the style then this is a superb signing as SJ can do exactly that

or because in 5-10 years time we are at the next level (whatever that is).

We have a ready made number 2 at the club - Foster.

My vile colleagues are rather cheesed off about this signing, so he must be good.

Just had a conversation with another gutted vile fan!

This really is a good signing, both in terms of quality, and its ability to upset the neighbours.!

somebody drinks in my pub who's good friends with palmer via football from when they were younger and he's not expecting to play many games this coming season. However he has been given assurances that he has a future here.

I'm Not ITK and the bloke could be talking out of his arse, but thought id pass it on

If we were signing a keeper from United I would have preferred Henderson or Pereira as I haven't always been impressed by Johnstone. He's here now though, and I hope he goes from strength to strength.
