Boaz Myhill and West Brom surprised Liverpool at the Hawthorns as the keeper made five saves and kept a clean sheet in the nil-nil draw.
Apparently Tony Pulis got his message across. After three miserable weeks in a row, the Baggies have responded with two consecutive clean sheets over teams ahead of them in the table. Last weekend it was a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. This week Boaz Myhill recorded five saves and kept a clean sheet as neither team was able to find the back of the net at Anfield. Neither side were particularly impressive but there were a lot of clean sheet points to go around. Apr 25 - 12:22 PM

15, -8, -9, 18 - those are Boaz Myhill's Yahoo fantasy totals over the past four match weeks. Regardless of format it has been feast or famine and Week 33 was another feast.

Myhill has seen it all since replacing Ben Foster as a starter. He made enough saves for a huge day in a loss to City in Week 30. Weeks 31 and 32 were both disasters where he was deep in the negative points. Week 33 say Myhill and West Brom rebound with a clean sheet win on the road at Crystal Palace that featured four saves to boot. Hard to know what to expect from Myhill and the Baggies the rest of the way but it's a safe bet it will be interesting. Liverpool is next and their unpredictability combined with that of West Brom is going to make for some interesting decisions.

Boaz Myhill looked like he might be a great bargain but for the second consecutive week he put up a significant negative point total (Yahoo format).

West Brom's fall from grace over the past three weeks has been precipitous. Perhaps the biggest victim of the Baggies' fall has been Boaz Myhill. He stood on his head and made 13 saves in the loss to Manchester City in Week 30 but since then there have been fewer saves but the losses and goals against numbers have looked just as ugly. The two losses have been good for -8 and -9 totals in the Yahoo format and ugly numbers regardless of format. The arrival of in-form Crystal Palace in Week 33 doesn't offer much hope of a turn-around so don't get sucked in by Myhill's low price.

West Bromwich Albion were behind the eight ball from the get go, being reduced to ten men in the first two minutes of the match, but despite a 3-0 loss against Manchester City, Boaz Myhill was a saves machine.

The Baggies were ill-prepared from the opening whistle and they paid dearly for it. Wilfired Bony was able to find some space at the edge of the area and eluded a foul by Gareth McCauley. The ref played advantage but Bony was then taken down inside the box by Michael Dawson. This created some confusion as the ref reached for a red card and told McAuley to take a hike when commentators were clamoring for a Dawson foul. Regardless, an unprepared team down to ten men at the Etihad with 88 minutes to play went as expected. City peppered the goal all day, and though Boaz Myhill let three by, he saved over a dozen. His positive work earned him 15 points, not a bad result for a budget backup keeper at the Etihad.

Boaz Myhill looks like he will be the starter for Tony Pulis for the next month as Ben Foster recovers from the injury he suffered in Albion's 1-0 over Stoke City last weekend.

With Foster set to be on the shelf for about a month, Myhill is a solid bargain option across a variety of different game formats. This weekend at Manchester City may not be the weekend you want to jump on that bargain but you may want to put him on your bench in formats that allow a bench since the Baggies have been playing well and there's every reason to expect a few clean sheets over the course of the month of starts that Myhill is likely to see.

Ben Foster was hoping for an easy day on Saturday as Tony Pulis confirmed back-up stopper Boaz Myhill would get the nod for the fourth round away tie at Birmingham in the FA Cup.

However a collision with Blues centre-forward Lloyd Dyer left the reserve goalkeeper with a split finger and suspected dislocation which required stitches and an X-ray. Although minor the injury could potentially keep Myhill out for a few weeks and with Ben Foster as the only other experienced first team keeper his absence will be a concern. Pulis will wait for further assessments / test results before deciding his next steps but with a week of the transfer window still to go the Baggies boss could yet bring in a fresh face.

The West Brom keeper was under siege all day as Liverpool could easily have score six or seven goals against the Baggies.

It's hard to blame Boaz Myhill too much because West Brom's defense was consistently cut apart by the Liverpool attack. In addition to Luis Suarez's hattrick and Daniel Sturridge's fourth, Martin Skertl and Jordan Henderson both missed out on very makeable goals from Steven Gerrard passes. The Baggies put up valiant fights against Arsenal (draw) and Manchester United (win) but just didn't show up against Liverpool. There should be optimism for Week 10 with Crystal Palace traveling to the Hawthorns.
