Edwin van der Sar? Premiership goalkeeper of the year? AAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Good one PFA.
indeed. i bet james and foster are seething.
Foster hasn't had that great a season, he's made a lot of saves, but that's a reflection of how shit Watford's defence is. He's also made a fair share of shocking errors this season.
No goalkeeper has really excelled this season. It probably would have gone to Cech if he'd played more games.
and i think foster has been a better keeper.
cech gets lots of clean sheets, makes the odd save, but he's got such a good defence in front of him that i'm not sure how deserving he is of being singled out.
tevez's goal was the first goal he had conceded since his first game back. The man should piss keeper of the year.
but i don't like his hat.
But I know you're never going to admit that any Chelsea player's played well so this is a bit of a pointless argument.
James has been a little patchy too this season. I can't really think of any keeper who's played enough games or been consistent enough to stand out of from anyone else.
and is a really good keeper, i just think he's not deserving of an individual prize purely because the defence in front of him is so good, whereas james and foster have impressed with less good defenders.
but i'd agree there hasn't been a particular standout keeper.
not been a standout keeper?! You make out as if he never has a shot to save during 90 minutes, when in fact he will make at least 2/3 world class saves a match.
Cech = best keeper in the world.
he stand outs from the rest of his defence. i think he's probably the best keeper in the premiership, but i don't think he should win a prize.
it's like when they do manager of the season and coppell should probably win agead of ferguson or mourinho. he's not the best, but he's impressed most with the situation he's in.
i'm not saying i don't rate cech at all. i just think james or foster have been more impressive given the relative situations.
do you see?
I see that James and Foster have peformed admirably in teams that still concede a lot of goals, but I also see that Cech was out for 3 months with a career, if not life threatening injury, and has come back to be better than any of his premiership counterparts.
me and brooner turned up for that kickaround yesterday (I had my luzhny shirt and all), but a combination of his phone dying so he couldn't ring you and me not knowing anyone obviously meant we couldn't find you.
Also Cech = keeper of the year.
I didn't make it anyway due to waking up 60 miles away on Sunday morning. I got the text at about 5pm from Brooner.
Come down soon though, it's a good laugh.
the day one of the more average keepers got that honour :/
