New Keeper Acquisition Looming!

New Keeper Acquisition Looming!

Rumours are rife, in the tabloid press, relating to Sir Alex Ferguson bringing a new goalkeeper to Old Trafford in this January transfer window.

It would appear, if the red-top hacks have summed up the situation correctly, that Sir Alex Ferguson is in talks with the Glazers about a financial package to bring a new keeper in, with the red-tops citing that Sir Alex has lost confidence in his young Spaniard - David de Gea.

The names of two Premier League keepers are provided as possible replacements, those being Pep Reina (Liverpool) and Asmir Begovic (Stoke City).

Now whether there is any substance in these inferences or not, we can only wait and see!

Load of nonsense, if Fergie invests which is unlikely anyway it certainly won't be on a keeper.

Also is that the same Casillas in the team of the year which currently isn't even Real Madrids current first choice keeper? The fifa best eleven seems like more of a dream team for fifa rather than an award based on seasonal performances.

Fifa team of the year dominated by Real Madrid and Barcelona players again. Do they even watch the premier league? There's no way on this earth one of pique or Ramos deserve to be in ahead of Kompany and there's certainly no way Falcao has had a better year than Van Persie.

FIFA have been biased toward the Spanish big two for years. As for certain individuals in the team of the year you have to remember this the same FIFA that ranks England as sixth best team in the world.

Can't see Fergie going for a new keeper De Gea is good has plenty of potential and time on his side. It seems everyone forgets how young he is compared to other keepers he will only keep getting better. If Fergie jumps for anyone it'll be a midfielder hopefully

It's just boring though Motor, you can pretty much predict the team of the year for next year and the three ballon d'or finalists and ultimately who will win it. The ballon d'or I don't begrudge as in fairness Iniesta, Messi and Ronaldo are planets apart from the rest of the footballing world whilst Messi is perhaps the best player to ever step on a football pitch however the team of the year is just ridiculous, what is it judged on exactly? How successful the season was as a team or individual? How many accolades you got during the year? Barcelona had a poor year, very poor by their standards however for their inidividual performances you can understand why Messi is in there. With Iniesta he had an incredible World Cup campaign whilst Xabi Alonso had a great World Cup and La liga campaign. Xavi for all his class though and whilst he's better than Pirlo he certainly didn't have a better season than him. You'd be splitting hairs as to who has been the better keeper between Neur, Casillas and Buffon but due to his decline towards the end of the year surely Casillas can be ruled out. Alves over Lahm? Piqué over Kompany? Marcelo over Cole (average season but stand out champions league effort)? Xavi over Pirlo? Falcao over Van Persie (he might not of won a 2nd rate European competition but dragged his side kicking and screaming to 3rd and one numerous individual plaudits along the way with a number of brilliant goals AND assists)?

Also I understand people vote but I'd love to know under what impression they're voting under.

Lord only knows back in the day it was decided on how good a season a player had but now seems to be based purely on ability. Probably asking for trouble but I wonder if the blue contingent are of similar mind about this?
