Some of you think that Foster will be good enough, I don't. I think he will be stabil and reliable but not spectacular making those really important saves. I think he is a keeper we can win the PL with but not the CL.
But hey, we allready have Foster in the team and I don't think Ferguson will let him go anywhere (except for maybe another loan). Van der Sar has said that this will be his last season (well, maybe he has another one in him but it's not that likely) so a third one is needed. Either from within or buying one.
If Foster is good enough, then bringing in another excellent keeper would just keeping him on his toes, forcing him to develop to stay our number 1, right? So nothing bad with that. And if he's not good enough then the other keeper should be our number one, right? It seems fair to me playing the best keeper and not playing a player because his english or anything like that.
So, if we get another keeper (I would like that we do, and even you Foster-fans should like it if you think the team is more important than a single player) then I would like a young prospect. Right now are there 5 keepers rated among the top 20 keepers in the world that are born 1984 or later:
9. Rene Adler, Bayer Leverkusen. Born 1985----------------------------------------------------------------11. Carlos Kameni, Espanyol. Born 198412. Manuel Neuer, Schalke 04. Born 198613. Hugo Lloris, Lyon. Born 198614. Igor Akinfeev, CSKA Moskva Born 1986
All of them should be possible to sign if we really want to (and obviously if they want to come).
Which keeper would you like IF we signed a new one? Probably all five will be among top 10 keepers in the world 4-5 years from now so I don't think that anyone of them is a bad buy. My personal favourite is Igor Akinfeev because of his reflexes and speed (this guy actually waits to see where penalties are going and still has the reflex and speed to get there, one hell of a stopper), consistent performance, winning attitude, awareness and same type of temperament that Schmeichel had when someone isn't doing his job 100% perfect.
JUST GIVE FOSTER CHANCE! HE HAS A LONG WAITING ON THE BENCH, I KNOW HE HAS A GREAT-GREAT POTENTIAL, VERY PATIENT AND LOYAL.
COME ON FERGIE...! HE NEED IT TO PROVE.
ARE U AGREE WITH ME GUYS?????????????????????????????????????
Ben Foster to be Englands no.1 and United's no.1 but Neuer would be the best buy.
He may be an excellent keeper...but what's the use when you have an amazing one on the field, another on the subs bench and the-best-to-be in the reserves??? There's not enough place in a team for 4 keepers even though Van Der Sar will be retiring in a few years...
we just need right back as we have pique and silvester
Kameni is curently one of the best in the world and Man Utd should get him couse he will improve further. But with Vidic and Rio in defence we dont need a GK :)
i made what myself??
Stunaldo ? You made it urself ? Yea Right ROFL . Ok then , how do you make it then ? I heard Carrick is going to Newcastle
Man, i watched this guy play for cameroon at the africa cup of nations on the telly and was stunned. Guy has serious skill. Although I dont think there is any need for a keeper at this point with one of the worlds best Van Der Sar between the sticks and the highly promising Foster comin up. Kuskaszk.... umm anyway. But you always have a personal shortlist dont ya heres mine.
Boruc (quite an experience watching this guy between the posts..trust)
There's no doubt that Kameni is a good goalkeeper, but we have Van Der Sar for another two years, Kuszczak and Foster. Also, we have Zieler in the acadamy, who is highly rated for the future.
Besides, I would rather have United sign Ochoa if anyone.
I totally agree omg, he was definately amazing against porto, he actually was a one man show! If anyone in a influencial position in United reads this please beleive me, he is a massive young prospect check him out on www.youtube.co.uk
We have Ben Foster and Van der Sar, why do we need another keeper? And Stornoway forever man!!!
