David James V Ben Foster

David James V Ben Foster

David James will come face to face, with England`s number three Goalkeeper Ben Foster. Foster is on loan from Manchester United and has found himself in the England squad after performing well for Watford.

David James told the news;

'Foster's doing very well. I don't know a great deal about him, but I saw him pre-World Cup. He wants to control his area and is aggressive.

'I can only do what I can do. Mr McClaren has his ideas on how he wants to do things
'I haven't spoken to him but he wants to look at younger keepers. All I can do is keep performing and hope the opportunity arises.I'm not going to retire from England.

'So I hope my performances for Portsmouth are adequate and put me in the window.'


I would recommend that Steve McClaren attends this game but some how think that is unlikely…

McLaren has made his bed so he'll lay in it! Jamo's England career is over if he couldn't get back into the last few squads on his form he never will again. Sure McLaren has his own ideas but he's lost the plot if he ever had it...

I don't know what plant these Utd fans are on but Jamo is far better than Foster. If Foster was any good he would be playing for a much better team than Watford that for sure.

foster is at watford to get premiership experience before he repaces van der sar. maybe if james werent prone to errors he would still be englands number 1

Jamo was very impressive when you lot came to SW6. I guess past mistakes will always haunt him though.
