Ben Foster: Great display in front of Roy Hodgson

Foster made himself available for England duty again this week after two years in self-imposed exile, and Hodgson - alongside England goalkeeper coach Dave Watson - will have been impressed.

Foster made a string of fine saves to keep the scoreline at 1-0 to the hosts.

He told the club's website: "It was good to put on a good performance.

"I spoke to Roy last week about England and he was very happy with it. I also spoke to the goalkeeper coach Dave Watson. I'm very happy with the decision.

"The main reason I've made the decision is my body really has improved a lot over the last few years - they're the best I've had.

"The kids are getting on for four and five now and starting school so I won't see them as much. That was the main reason behind it.

"Roy also knows what I'm about. He worked with me for a year at West Brom and he knows what he's going to get from me.

"He said 'there are a lot of good goalkeepers out there so go out there and show me you can get into the team'.

"You don't expect to walk straight back into the team but I'll take every game as it comes and go out there and look to do as well as I can for West Brom."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
