Ben Foster hasn't grabbed his chance. He was number one for a few weeks with Edwin van der Sar's injury but he made plenty of mistakes and was dropped as soon as Edwin returned and now he's very much third choice, with Tomasz Kuszczak getting ahead of him as well. Regardless, Sir Alex still believes Foster has a future at the club, despite speculation about his imminent departure.
'Ben has been unfortunate,' said Ferguson in his weekly press conference.
'He made some mistakes earlier this season and Tomasz Kuszczak got in. His form has been great. Every time he played he was outstanding.
'What do I do? Pick Ben because he is English or go with form? But Ben has fantastic talent and I am sure he will be tremendous next year.
'The boy has just signed a new contract and has never said anything to me, so as far as I am concerned, he will be here.'
With Van der Sar having signed a new contract and Kuszczak being still around, will Foster ever get another game? It would be in the boys' best interest to leave in my opinion. We all had high hopes for him, given his undoubted talent but it doesn't seem he's got what it takes to succeed under the pressure of the highest level. I would be delighted if he proved me wrong but when would he do that? When Edwin finally hangs up his boots in 2011?
Foster is better than what his early mistakes showed but still isn't good enough for United, or at least it seems so. However, he's too good to be a third choice keeper, he deserves a proper chance at another club, where the expectations aren't that high and where there is less pressure on a still relatively young keeper.
