Ben Foster: Goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely impressed with West Brom No.1

Foster has impressed for the Baggies this season, helping the club to eighth place, four points behind Liverpool.

And goalkeeping coach Kiely, who won promotion with Charlton at 30, insists Foster can grow with age.

"I still think Ben can get better and better," said Kiely.

"He was 30 yesterday and for me the years between 30 and 40 were my golden era. It's exciting times for both him and the football club.

"My golden era was at Charlton and it wasn't a coincidence my family was settled and I liked the club. I played my best football there for those reasons and I think Ben is in a similar situation.

"Everything seems to fit. It seems to suit. Ben is a joy to work with. I think he has improved us no end and people see that when he's playing.

"But I have to say in and around the changing room from Monday to Friday, he's a real good character and top professional. He's a top fella too which obviously comes into it."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
