Foster Still First Choice After Edwin

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Ben Foster will remain our first choice keeper in the absence of Edwin Van der Sar, despite Tomasz Kuszczak being chosen for our cup games against Wolves and Wolfsburg.

“Tomasz Kuszczak produced a very good performance against Wolves last week and we felt he deserved to play another game,” Ferguson said. “It wasn’t going to be last Saturday though because we had to give Ben some support after that difficult game against Manchester City. It was a good opportunity for us to play Tomasz against Wolfsburg but Ben will play on Saturday.”

    I can see Eikrem playing some first team football this season. Unlucky that he didn’t get a run out in the Carling Cup last week. Looks a real prospect. The Reserves play some great football under Ole.

    @King Eric : oh my goodness. has anybody seen the 2 goals by Magnus Eikrem last night ? even Paddy Crerand saying that Scholes would have been proud of that 2nd goal by Eikrem. also 2 top draw finishes by Joshua king. get this boy in the midfield and Joshua King upfront Fergie.

    @AIG : hi mate. good afternoon. it was against Sunderland at Moss lane the home of United reserves. i saw from 60th minute onwards last night on the net. some top talent in the reserves. Eikrem looks to be getting closer to 1st team football. just watch his brilliant lob goal. we have got a fine replacement for Scholesy i guess

    I rate Kuszczak much more than Foster. I’m an Arsenal fan and Polish, but I’m not bias. Fabianski is awful. Kuszczak was very fucking impressive in Poland and for West Brom. For the sake of his career, I hope he leaves United. Its obvious Foster is being wrongfully supported ahead of him just cause he’s english. The fact is, England might produce better outfield players than Poland(for sure), but the gulf in quality when it comes to goalkeeping is huge. We’ve always had world class kjeepers and still do. Boruc had one bad season(last season), but he’s back to his best already.

    The young Pole at Arsenal, Szczesny is fucking brilliant. His dad was a top, top keeper.

    Fabianski is shit though.

    And as a side note to this missing CR thing: Obviously United weren’t going to fall apart, but the attacking spark is lacking and if you want to win it a record 4 times in a row, it’ll be your defense that wins it. But I hope you lads come 2nd, after us. City will be found out soon enough.

    Pat – Fair play to you , you make some good points however I am baffled as to why an Arsenal fan would spend a fair amount of his time on a United blog? As for our attacking threat I have to disagree. United are scoring for fun this season and something like our last eleven goals have been scored by TEN different players. You say he was our “spark” but United really did struggle to hit the onion bag last season. The team spirit now at our club since the departure of Ronnie and the Judas is fantastic. You really think Arsenal will win the league? No chance pal, you ain’t even close to United. Just wait till we get out of second gear after Xmas.

    Noticed on the previous post you said Giggsy wouldn’t get in the Arsenal team. Don’t make me laugh, he has more class in his little finger than Bentner and Van Persie possess in their whole bodies.

    Bravo to SAF for giving him another chance, and BRAVO to Foster for f**** it up again!! Jesus this guys is worse than Howard, Carrol and other average gks who were at OT….

    For f***** sake, open your eyes people….
