Albion Matchday Forum / Re: After Match Debate

I'd have taken a draw before the game so very happy with 3 points. Should have been far more comfortable than it was. Awful goal to concede again and some poor finishing. Someone is going to get a real tonking soon if we keep making this many chances. Need a few in before the window shuts, a striker and a couple of midfielders are paramount.

Bitter taste left but it's done now so we move on. Need to get a striker or two in and probably another central midfielder (still dreaming of Okay).

Albion only for me. I watch the games but don't get emotional about it.

Fair enough, I thought 5ft 9 with two pairs of socks was being a bit generous. 5ft 7 with three pairs of socks and newly acquired flipper like feet it is then  ;D .

He needs a modified pogo stick on each foot

Townsend's about 5ft 9 inches when he wears two pairs of socks and gets caught for height with cross field diagonal balls at left back. I'd dread to see him at centre half. Better off promoting someone from the youth set up or bringing in a left footed centre half.

5'6 according to many player profile sites across t'internet. Could get Shaun Wright-Phillips in to partner him as right centre half.

Mozza and Brunty management duo anyone??

I said this to my old man last week. I don't want it as they're nowhere near ready, but with the way and the speed we recruit we could very well kick off with this duo

What has surprised me the most about SJ is how he has totally escaped any criticism for not extending his contract.

I read posts praising and criticising his game but not total lack of loyalty.

As one who praises his hood points and points out his flaws I'm indifferent to it tbh. As long as we make a profit on him I'm fine with it.

Not massively enthused but at least he’s not Allardyce. No candidate was really stand out, so I’ll sit back and enjoy the ride (or not).

If only he was Allardyce imo.

It's the way of the world atm, you can't slightly lean either side of an opinion. If you oppose someone's views they think you're an extremist, with Politics and with Sam Johnstone in this case.

Hes no where near the best keeper I've watched at the albion, but like you said, some people make out like he's the level of Zuberbuhler, Luke Steele etc al

The lovers thing was just a figure of speech. What do people suggest I call them, in the interests of not offending anyone? And for the record I'm neither a hater nor a lover. I've often praised his shot stopping, whilst also pointing out his obvious flaws.

We all know SJ is a top class shot stopper, but is let down by not being so commanding of his rea (claiming crosses) and his kicking.

The England game v Romania showed his kicking is not the best when a few times he kicked it out of play when others such as pickford would have found an england player. I think this is what would hold him back from being a keeper for a top team / England No. 1

This.
Not sure why the SJ lovers on here can't see this. Its nothing personal, nothing vindictive, just our opinion! He'd be the best keeper in the world if we played 5 a-side. Unfortunately you have to deal with crosses and kick long in 11 a-side.

Wonder if we've had a cheeky punt on Rafa?

I've wanted him for weeks, just don't see it happening

Sneeks just reminded me of his performance against the bluenoses in our 1 nil win god knows how many saves he made that day but they were many and the only time we got out of our half Rich scores. We only need one chance rang around the ground and the obligatory there's only one Alan Miller and England's no 1. Happy memories big man.

Loved that game, maybe not during the 90 minutes but it felt great coming out the ground afterwards. They dominated for a few seasons afterwards though, starting with the 96th minute Michael Johnson goal...   :-\ Miller was indeed great that day, one of the best goalkeeper performances I've seen from an Albion keeper, right up there with the pole at man u

Can we have a foreign tour please. Best part of the season.

Yes, I'm looking forward to Bartley doing this.

Bartley is going to look like Alan Hansen next season

Hear hear. The vendetta that certain individuals have against this bloke is a little sad. Well done Sam.

There's no vendetta, he just isn't a great all round goalkeeper. Decent shot stopper but that's where it ends.
