Foster’s iPod Fuss Is Embarrassing

When Ben Foster told news reporters that he had been helped to win the League Cup for Manchester United by the technology Eric Steele had an offer, there is no way he could have anticipated the reaction it would create. The press unintentionally revealed themselves as technophones, considering iPods have been knocking about for some time now, with the average teenager knowing the ins and outs of them. Was it really a big deal that Steele showed Foster footage of Spurs’ penalty takers in the past?

Russell Brand successfully mocked the reports at the time, whilst our new goalkeeping coach has today confessed he’s rather embarrassed by the whole thing.

“I am finding all the fuss a little embarrassing,” said Steele. “I even had calls from Italy this week asking if we would be using the iPod against Inter Milan in the Champions League if the game goes to a penalty shoot-out. But it is just part of the research you would expect from a club of Manchester United’s stature.”

    Russell Brand: “Also you can download music on your mobile phone so that’s an option, perhaps Ashley can’t remember where he’s put it.”

    Fuck them all…. we won the fucking cup …. I wouldn’t care if Foster used a fucking machine gun if it meant we won the fucking game……..hang on a moment there’s a thought …… just wondered….we is playing the fuckpig dippers and Stevie-me dives in our box in the last minute to win a penalty….. He lines up to take and begins his run up and….. POW…. Foster blows his fucking kicking leg off with a shotgun…..
    Do the FA have a rule against this?
    Would he have to retake it hopping up to the spot on his remaining leg?
