West Brom failed to make it two wins in a row as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Millwall.
The Baggies couldn’t get into their stride at the Hawthorns and paid the price for a host of missed chances when Matt Smith struck in the second half to give the Lions a share of the spoils in the Midlands.
While it wasn’t a top performance by any means from the Baggies, there was once again errors from goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, and the 26-year-old seems to be coming under a bit of fire from Albion supporters following a stuttering start to the season for the stopper.
The Baggies fans were seemingly out in force on social media following the game and looked to target Johnstone and pin a lot of the blame on the result at the ‘keeper’s feet.
With so many negative comments coming the way of Johnstone, we at FLW delved a little deeper and looked at just exactly what the West Brom fans had to say about their goalkeeper…
Really surprised we stuck with Sam Johnstone over the summer. #wba

Sam Johnstone is a liability, gets beat from distance too often and doesn’t command his box at all

Time for a change between the sticks, never have rated Sam Johnstone and I don't think I ever will. #wba

John Terry made Sam Johnstone look good.
Pass it on

People also need to realise Sam Johnstone isnt good enough. Decent shot stopper on his day but you can tell the defenders have no confidence in him whatsoever #wba

Sam Johnstone skips catching practice, pass it on.
