Foster Has Finally Arrived

Ben Foster now feels like he is part of the team and it was clear from his performance that we can believe he was not nervous before the game at Derby.

The 24-year-old pounced on his chance with a faultless performance that included two great saves to deny Derby taking the lead. It's little surprise that he was very happy after the game.

"I finally feel like a United player now!

"I`ve been here nearly three years and it`s good to finally get on the pitch for the first team in a competitive game.

"I`m not one for nerves - I just take things in my stride and try not to think about things too much. It`s a big thing to come back from injury and to be thrown straight into the first team, but I thoroughly enjoyed it - though it was a bit harder than I thought!"

Well, I also expected that the game at Derby would represent a pleasant, easy debut but it was not to be. However, he did his job well and the question is: will he remain in goal now?

"I wouldn`t have thought the manager would have too much of a dilemma," he said "Edwin`s probably going to be fit for the Bolton or Liverpool game and I`ve no qualms about him going straight back in.

"He`s been fantastic this season and if I were him I`d be pretty disappointed if someone came in for one game and took my spot!"

Maybe next year, Ben. I think he'll have an outstanding chance in 2008/09.

Great News! Though if the rumours are right he'll shortly be leaving the theatre of dreams on a loan spell to Ricoh Arena and Coventry. Seems strange as he was outstanding by all accounts on Saturday!
