Player Reviews 08/09: Edwin van der Sar

This is the first part of Vital United's player-by-player analysis of the season. We start of with Edwin van der Sar, United's veteran Dutch goalkeeper.

Edwin van der Sar

b>Games played: 49

Best performance

or the biggest part of the season our fantastic defence did most of the job for him and it's difficult to pick one really memorable performance from him. I vote for the league game at White Hart Lane where he was equal to everything Spurs threw at him.

Worst game

iverpool away. The first goal was almost entirely his fault and he was shaky throughout the afternoon.

Overview

ightly lauded for his record-breaking run between November and February but in truth he had little do to: Vidic and co. kept everything out with cold efficiency. Under pressure it was evident that age is somewhat catching up with the peerless Dutchman but he could be good for another season.

Vital's rating: 8 (out of 10)

Fair enough - deserves praise for a fantastic season. I thought he did okay in Rome too - as well as anyone else in the team (though that's not great but he made some decent saves). Would like to see Ben Foster coming through, but Edwin's fine until then :)
