Earlier this week Keiren Westwood released a statement on social media stating that he hasn’t fallen out with Garry Monk, while clearing up the rumours that have been circulating regarding his lack of appearances.
Monk suggests that the 35-year-old is currently unavailable through injury and has been sidelined for much of his time in South Yorkshire. He adds that he is looking for continuity in the goalkeeping position and because Westwood hasn’t been able to provide that reassurance he has favoured Cameron Dawson instead.
While that may be true, it doesn’t explain why he has been excluded from the first-team squad altogether, and because of that Monk’s reasoning doesn’t sit well with fans, who hold some doubts. With that in mind, here’s a look at what fans on Twitter were saying.
Had a bust up then

if that’s the case then it’s absolutely fair enough, find it hard to believe though unfortunately

And yet this still won’t be good enough for those conspiracy theorists blindly and without logic, sticking by Dawson.
