Losing Ben Foster was a blow to West Bromwich Albion, so they responded by moving for Sam Johnstone.
The goalkeeper signed for the Baggies from Manchester United following a lengthy loan spell at Aston Villa.
The 25-year-old had been on the Red Devils’ books for his entire career, but he failed to find a route to the first team.
Johnstone impressed during his time at Villa, and there were suggestions that he should move to the Midlands outfit permanently, but in the end he signed on the dotted line at The Hawthorns.
The Playmaker FC squad decided to wind-up some unsuspecting Brazil fans at the Emirates on Saturday night. Watch the hilarious results in the video below…
The shot-stopper has started all 19 of West Brom’s Championship matches, and even though they are well positioned in fourth place, the team have kept just one clean sheet in the league.
On Wednesday night, Darren Moore’s side earned a 2-1 triumph over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, claiming a third straight league win.
On Twitter, plenty of fans were delighted with the result but unsure about Johnstone.
Just saw a few tweets from villa fans about their goal keeper now. They’re all saying “I was skeptical of Johnstone first but he improved so much” something we need to keep in mind? #wba

Great result tonight, so much better with a back 4. Still questions over Johnstone though. Big week next week…. #wba

Same happening with Sam Johnstone at #WBA good season at villa behind a John Terry marshalled defence, like a rabbit in the headlights behind a very poor defence.

Not convinced in any way shape or form by Sam Johnstone.

I think Johnstone needs a game or two out of the side #wba

Johnstone is clueless, no wonder we never have a clean sheet #wba
