United - Foster Signs for Birmingham!

No great shock there!

Official news came through early this afternoon that the much publicised deal between Birmingham and United, for Ben Foster, had been done.

Foster signed a three year deal with Alex McLeish enthusing,

"We`ve signed another young hungry goalkeeper who wants to prove himself and live up to his potential."

Here at Vital Manchester United we hope the move turns into everything Ben had hoped for and we`d like to take this opportunity to thank him for his service to the club whilst also wishing him well in his career with his new club.

So you'll definitely be in the market for a replacement. And by the way Red Boy, where's Zae? Have you replaced him as the site editor?

I doubt we'll be replacing him JT_daniel. Foster was our 3rd choice keeper and having 3 top GKs is not possible without paying players excessive wages to essentially disregard their ambition (a bit like cudicini did a few years ago). The only reason we didnt have a problem this year was because VDS was injured and both our backups were given a good run in the team. Additionally, with the 25 man squad limit, I doubt anybody will have 3 over 21 GKs as they'd just be wasting a squad place. If Kuszczak is sold then we'll bring in another keeper, but I cant see that happening since it will just cost us more in the long term. We're better off waiting for VDS to retire, buying a new GK and keeping our current number 2. Selling our number 2 now so we can buy a new number 1 means we'll end up buying 2 GKs over the next couple of years rather than 1.

Buy Buy Buy Buy Buy....How many times have you used these words. How about introducing someone from your massive youth system???? I think this tranfer is a bad move as you now have no money to buy anyone else.

Im sure we can produce money if it was severely needed Sleggin. Its a good move for him hopefully he can do more there than he did here.
TheFamousNo7
Only-Sleggin, is your mind melting? Having presumably read the article, you managed to deduce that our solution to having 3 goalkeepers should have been to introduce a 4th from the youth system and then not sold foster because somehow receiving 6m for our third choice keeper makes us financially worse off?

Only-Sleggin, go do one, just some place else!
