Foderingham was Town's standout performer in front of a sold-out County Ground as he made a some impressive saves, blocking Fernando Torres with his face and then parrying well from Juan Mata just minutes later, only for Torres to poke home the rebound.

And despite being frustrated with the defeat after Town's largely solid performance, which he felt lacked a killer instinct in attack, the stopper believes there are plenty of positives to take.

"I think I had a decent game but that's probably expected as I'm going to have a lot more to do playing against a decent side," Foderingham told Press Association Sport.

"I was a little bit disappointed with the first goal as I made a decent save (from Mata), looked around and I saw Torres tap it in from a yard out. But I was happy with my own performance."

Foderingham added: "I think we played well, not great, but we stuck to our principles, tried to play the ball out from the back, did well in possession but I just didn't think we had the cutting edge in front of goal that they had.

"I think losing 2-0 to one of the best sides in Europe is definitely no disgrace, we did well and can come away with our heads held high. We've definitely had a learning experience out there.

"You can definitely see the difference in quality, nine times out of 10 when they see an opening they're going to play the right pass and they did that well."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
