Ive seen Myhill have some good games and bad BD, but he is too inconsistant for me, hopefully the Baggies can get relegated and we can have Foster back....Woods is going back I heard, and the Albion want him fit, likewise Ridgewell won't be a saleable commodity if he gets injured so hes being wrapped in cotton wool.and Zigic...Ive never been a fan, although I did warm to him slightly after he scored our first at Wembley...but I don't particularly go for beanpole strikers....Kev Francis an exception....much prefer all action Keith Bertshin/ Bob Latchford type forward's who hassle and bustle....perhaps we can persuade Albion to swop Woods for Zigic ?
Wishful thinking I think.
I think your being a bit harsh on Myhill BD,
He's not in the same class as Hart but nor is Foster tbh.
Even Foster has made some silly mistakes during his Blues days and even more so since he's been at the Baggies.
Myhill had a shakey start but his performances of late have earned us points. Just look at the save against WHU, Cole was 6 yards out and Myhill produced a wonder save. Had that gone in just before H/T it would have been all over.
At Peterborough he made a superb finger-tip save to push a solid effort over the bar, again he kept us in the game.
Zigic is short of confidence, during the warm up yesterday he was smashing goals in from 25 yards, beating Myhill on several occasions but during a game he cant score from 2 yards with their keeper on the floor !
Just my opinion.

It is a well known fact that keepers make mistakes, and I don't doubt that some of his saves have been match saving.
A keeper also has to enthuse confidence with his team mates, that I don't see, or feel when we play.
When Foster and Hart played we had a solid defence, and though we don't let many in it is the soft goals that we concede that do so much damage and make it harder for us.
Zigic has never had any confidence and has as bad a record as Jerome.
Harsh or not I think we could do a lot better in that position and maybe even Young Butland can produce the goods
