Fergie expects end for Edwin.
had to happen eventually , Lindegaard has huge shoes to fill, lets see how he does
Sorry but i want a goalkeeper that makes the six yard box his own (old fashioned)and especially nowadays where a keeper only has to be breathed on before he gets a free kick,and V.A.S does for me not do that,not that he's not been a good keeper,steady yes,great not sure...not too me, but was needed at a time when we were short....sorry V.A.S and thanks and i do appreciate what people like that have done in a United shirt......
there are only 2 interpretations to SAF making that statement now
1) VDS has privately told SAF his intention is to retire in June
2) SAF has decided that the time has come for a new No.1 next season regardless of Ed's thoughts, so he is doing this to force the issue
I think (1) is far more likely though.
I can only hope plans for a replacement are at a fairly advanced stage as the new keeper will need a full pre-season next summer to bed in with the rest of the team!
4th best ever United keeper?
I think so!
Going to big a massive loss when he goes
Would it be inappropriate to suggest that we've just signed the replacement and are giving him six months to bed in?
I think you mean Van Der Sar by V.A.S?? surely he's been better than your implying, how many GK's out there are able to do so well in goal, he might not be springing around all the time, but we could see how important he was when the likes of Foster came into goal, his management and coordination of the defense is something that shouldn't go unnoticed?
Sorry but it's always easy when your not pushed for your place,i'm not saying v.d.s isn't a good keeper but he isn't close to being the best i've seen at O.T....still don't think he commands the box as good as he should.....good shot stopper but gets beaten at the near post too often.....i suppose i should be thankful to be able to criticise a keeper that would walk into any other premiership side....even at his age !!!!
