* unless its low.

Last time I remember watching him play it was like he was playing statues.  He's well past his sell by date, but if he's cheap and provides the opportunity for Palmer to play some games (somewhere else) so that we can become confident in him filling the role (or not) then it's an OK stop-gap for 1 year.
He has made some excellent low saves - one low down from Sturridge when we beat Chelsea a few years back sticks in my mind. His body language isn't the best but generally he's been better for us than he's given credit for. Also seems to be popular with others as he's a bit of a joker (if you're No 3 keeper it's not bad to have that going for you - every club needs an idiot).

He left Chelsea in 2013, so this save must really stand out.  In the intervening 5+ years his ability to get to the low shots has somewhat diminshed.

To quote Darren and with regards to Myhill

“respect and humility for everyone, absolutely everyone, who we come into contact with”

“We create success or failure on the pitch primarily by our thoughts.”

I was sat next to a Chelsea supporting friend of mine...that's why it sticks in my memory....we were under siege for the last 10 minutes, but Boaz did the business ! :D

My favorite Boaz memory is from the preseason in 2011. The Baggies are playing the San Jose Earthquakes (whatever happened to Quakes fan?) in a 6PM kickoff on a sunny California day. Boaz starts in goal for us facing a blinding sun. The Quakes keeper sends a long ball toward our end and Boaz loses it in the sun, the ball takes a huge bounce over Boaz' head and into the net.
I've seen keeper's score before but not from their own half :o
Roy had a good laugh at that one.

Not even on the bench today with Bond playing and Palmer on the bench.

Wonder if he could be on his way out of the door in this window?

He was taken ill before the game apparently

Myhill has replaced Mark Naylor as Academy Goalkeeping coach.

I really don't want him around anymore, but if he is staying now I wish him all the best and hopefully he has greater success than his predecessor Naylor, as we have never really produced a good goalie since I have been going up there.

On the subject of Naylor's anyone know if Stuart is still in the game, class keeper who made the England B squad.

Seven Albion keepers represented England across a variety of age levels during Mark Naylor's time with us. He must have been doing at least something right.

I met him at Bristol Rovers training ground a few years ago. I believe he was coaching.

Or........they may think he has the potential to be a pretty decent developmental goalkeeping coach.

The Goal keeping development coach is probably one of the most junior coaching positions at the club it is unlikely to attract a coach with any huge depth to their CV. It was remarkable Mark Naylor stayed with us as long as he did because generally those in the role will naturally want to progress to working at first team level. Baring that in mind whoever we appointed is a bit of an unknown quantity Boaz Myhill is as likely to be a good appointment as anyone else we were likely to appoint.
