Goodbye Ben!

United have just confirmed that Foster joined Birmingham City. I must say that I'm really sad to see Foster leave. He did commit a few mistakes, but so did VDS when he played for Juventus. In fact when we bought VDS the Italian media made fun of us for buying this 'over the hill' player. However, he was one of Fergie's best buys. Therefore letting Foster leave may come back to haunt us. Goalers get better along the course of time. There are some exceptions of course, Casillas, for example, was a top class keeper at the tender age of 17, and still is.

Fergie said it a million times, and I do trust Fergie's words. Foster has a huge potential and it's a matter of time until he reaches his full potential and show the world what he is capable of. Fergie said he'll be England's number 1 soon and I believe Ferguson. We may not move for a goalkeeper this summer but next summer buying a goalkeeper will be a must. Ben Amos will now be our 3rd keeper.

Ben leaves with just 23 senior appearances in 5 years. He will leave this club yearning for first team football and he'll probably get it at Birmingham. Thanks for your patience Ben! Good luck!
