More Praise For Foster

Ben Foster has been soaking up the praise since the weekend, with the perfect conclusion to the biggest game of his career. Not only did he pick up the Man of the Match award for his display at Wembley, but he is also managed to save a penalty.

Oliver Holt, who has become increasingly and surprisingly fond of Manchester United, has noted something else about Foster’s display at the weekend.

Manchester United keeper Ben Foster got a lot of attention on Sunday for saving a Spurs penalty and using an iPod.

But he also deserves a mention for something else. Instead of rushing into the arms of his team-mates when Anderson scored the winning spot-kick, Foster first gave opposite number Heurelho Gomes a consoling handshake.

Class as well as talent.

Holt is starting to freak me out!

  1. Its in my blood says:

    I dont trust him! He’s spewed bile over Utd for so long. About as trustworthy and reliable with his articles as Peter Kenyon is with his loyalty.

  2. diva says:

    he’s just finally realised greatness should be acknowleged…took him a long while to do so but he’s finally seen the light.

    but watch him change his tune the minute if smthg goes wrong

    But I didnt notice that… He pacified Gomes first? well that’s the attitude of a great man. Just hope he will make it as the greatest goalkeeper.

    The lad is under pressure to fill him column and yet United cannot do wrong at the moment–it’s therefore inevitable that he writes positively about United. Wouldn’t like to think that he’s changing colours!

  5. SULLY says:

    RESPECT Ben Foster… A new Schmeichel-in-the-make? Is a new Schmeichel on the cards? Anyone…???

  6. King Eric says:

    Sully: Yes mate he certainly has the potential even though its still early days. Great at crosses and handling, excellent distribution, commands the goal and gives the defence confidence and he is also quite a big lad. Reckon we will see alot more of him next season.

    Re Holt:

    This is the man who earned his salary from slating Rio Ferdinand nearly
    every week the year that Rio missed his drug test.
    By the way did anyone hear the commentator on the dippers match
    state that Carraghers blood ” oozed Liverpool red” ? Funny that since
    he’s a self confessed ”born and bred Evertonian”
