He will be straight in at number 1. There will be no battle for the spot as he is a much better keeper than both Butland and VG.

Excellent signing.

I think you are right, may have been part of the agreement to join, as if starts well could get into WC squad

For longer term planning it would make sense to have Johnstone and Butland as the No.1 and 2 as we know Guaita will probably leave next summer anyway. But I suspect it may be Butland who leaves simply because they will get a small fee for him.

I have a very uninformed and personal theory that this season will be to test the water as to whether Johnstone is a capable no.1 and Butland still has something to offer.

I can imagine the hope being that Johnstone proves a very astute signing and steps up to be our main man and perhaps Butland may show that he can at least be a very good deputy if not push for a starting place. Guaita leaving his post must be inevitable whether it be competition, age or a move back to Spain.

Could all go t**ts up of course. I can very well envisage Johnstone being the only GK here the following season and us looking either for his deputy or a no.1 to start ahead of him again.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....
