FanCast guest columnist Dean Bryson feels that Fergie
needs to stop chopping and changing between the sticks.
I have always felt that rotation is good for a
football team and it really brings competition for places to the fore, however
I believe there is one position in a team when it proves absolutely
counterproductive and has no real benefit at all.
It certainly wouldn't be the first time Fergie has
been guilty of it, but the rotation of goalkeepers appears nonsensical to me. I
accept Foster has had an indifferent spell this season, but I believe you
should either back him, or drop him as alternate games just doesn't work,
especially for confidence. Sir Alex came out today and suggested that due to Kuszczak
performance against Wolves, he deserved another game and why that is all well
and good; why not play him against Stoke? It just seems crazy that he would
drop Foster, who is the supposed No.1 in Van der Sar's absence, for what is an
important Champions League game.
Apparently Foster will be recalled for the
Sunderland game; therefore it appears obvious to me that Fergie is clearly
uncertain about what is best between the sticks. Certainly on the basis of his
last two performances I think that Kuszczak
has performed better and looked the
most assured out of the two and should be given his chance to prove that he is
up to the job of filling in for Van der Sar on a permanent basis, so to prevent
all this chopping and changing, which is no good for building a regular
understanding with the back four. Fergie should pick one and give him the gig
and learn from his past lessons with Carroll and Howard.
