the worst was the lad that was on bench all season and we let him play the last match home vs Arsenal and he basically threw 3 into his own net and allowed Arsenal to qualify for Europe

Johnston is far from the worst keeper we've had, all keepers have a weakness to their game and some excel in other areas. Rated Godden as the best in my time but I'd watched him more than Foster. I never had any confidence in Carson for some reason. special mention to Tony Lange for his outstanding performance against Portsmouth in the great escape match in 94 when he stood in for Naylor who was injured.

We've had far, far worse than Johnstone. Pascal Zuberbühler? He was absolutely atrocious. I'd say Carson was worse too.

OK...Sam Johnstone...
Goal keeper?
Goal minder?
Or Goal stopper?
Just a stopper for me.
No thoughts, nor a director of defence for for me.

You're not a great judge of keepers, if you think SJ has been our worst.
People live in the here and now sometimes. They react too quickly to what they see in front of them.
SJ is 10 times the keeper Paul Crichton was.

No real recommendation is it though really?

Johnstone is poorer than any 1st choice keeper I can remember (1988 onwards). Worse than Naylor, Miller, Hoult, Carson, Kirkland, Kiely, Kuszczak, Jensen and Foster. It's not even debatable imo.

I'd have to throw Crichton and Zubi at you , both regulars and IMO worse than SJ .

I had a dream he dropped 2 clangers in our next game. He's now creeping into my anxieties and affecting my sleep!

Crichton 32 apps in 3 seasons, Zuberbuhler 15 apps in 2. Don't recall either being regular 1st choice.

Crichton had a long run under Buckley I thought , must admit I thought both were in the sticks longer than that.

Gents, Oldbury has been clear. This thread is for Sam Johnstone. You want to compare keepers over years? Go for it, just create another thread and do it. Anymore and posts will get removed.

Credit where it’s due Johnstone had a good game today, one dodgy clearance which probably shouldn’t have got back to him in the first place but made some great saves, really hope he can build from that.

I presume 'he' refers to Knockaert's position when he shot.
Very harsh on SJ.

I've defended Johnstone for a while now but the Blackburn goal was down to him - and today he was poorly positioned too. If you look again the ball isn't in the top corner for the goal, instead Johnstone is somehow on his knees when he dives instead of his feet.
It may have gone in anyway but it looked sloppy for me. Yes it was a bit of a freak goal but he didn't help himself.

it’s a total freak goal, even knockaert admitted it was a cross, I’m not sure if it took a slight deflection either
