‘Worrying’, ‘Mixed’ – 26-year-old’s season at West Brom summed up in one word: Opinion

Published

on

West Brom caretaker manager Jimmy Shan is preparing his side for their next outing, looking to continue his two-game unbeaten run when they host Birmingham City on Friday night.

Shan is likely to turn to first choice goa-keeper Sam Johnstone again, who has been a constant for the Baggies this season with 38 appearances in the Championship.

But what one word best sums up Johnstone’s season at West Brom?

We discuss……..

Alfie Burns

“Worrying.

“He’s not impressed me like he did at Aston Villa.

“There have been some incredibly shaky moments from the goalkeeper this season, and for the money the Baggies paid, it should be a worry.

“Johnstone has time on his side, but he needs to improve.”

George Harbey

“Mixed.

“I think he’s come under criticism far too much this season, some of it has been justified but some of it hasn’t.

“I think his time with Villa was a lot more enjoyable.”

Louie Chandler

“Solid.

“It is what West Brom will have expected from Johnstone when they brought him in during the summer.

“Often let down by his backline, the United loanee has remained consistent between the sticks.”

Jay Taylor

“Solid.

“He hasn’t pulled up any trees, but he has been a solid number one for the Baggies and a more consistent performer you will be hard pushed to find.

“I think he can still improve, any player can, so I would say it has been a strong campaign for the stopper.”
