Edwin van der Sar>Tomasz Kuszczak
VDS over Kuszczak anyday. There's just no competition. From what I've seen,VDS has only made 2 high-profile blunders in his whole career with United. The first against Portsmouth @ Fratton Park last season,when Rio sends a mis-guided back pass to him & he juz' let's it slip into the back of the net. The other one is against the Scousers jus last week, when he was a series of blunders. Besides that,he's rock-solid throughtout the rest of games. In my sense,he's the fourth best goalkeeper in the world currently. Behind Gianluigi Buffon,Petr Cech & Iker Casillas.
Tomasz Kuszczak is still a far cry from the 'Jolly Green Giant'. Up until now,I still think that he was very lucky,being saved by Ronaldo from two occasions. The first when he let in the well-disguised 'cross'shot' from Abel ,where we beat Sporting Lisbon narrowly to top the group. Ronaldo was the one who saved him by scoring the winning goal. What if the game ended in a draw? AS Roma would probably take our top spot & we will be meeting Real Madrid in the 2nd-round stage! On the 2nd occasion,he was once again saved by Ronaldo in the game between us & Everton. I can bet dat no way VDS will let Tim Cahill's header go past him,I'm very sure about it. If u watch the replay again,u will noe what i meant. Luckily our boy Giggsy salvaged a vital penalty for us & Ronnie step up & sent Tim Howard down the wrong way. If we had drew the game against the Toffees,I can clearly see us lagging behind the Gooners' by 3 points. And it's def' not good,judjing that the Christmas period is a very crucial stage. Many of u may think dat there's nothin' 2 fret about since we also hve Ben Foster. But come on'. Visualize this..........
1.VDS retire @ the end of 2008.
2.Unfortunately, Ben Foster's injured.
3.Tommy Heaton doesn't hve any match experience @ all.
4.We r only left with Kuszczak,whom I really can't see him takin' us to the highest level of winning all the trophies for us.
5.To win the treble,I personally think that we need to hve a world-class goalie in our ranks. Like in 1999,Peter Schmeichel was arguably the best goalkeeper of all time. With him,u nvr ever need to worry. Besides,he's not injury-prone at all.
Get what I meant guys? It's time for SAF to look for a worthy replacement come-2008.
