Player Poaching

In football???

Surely not.

Well I thought that too but a story I read in the Daily Mail today made me think again.

Back In The Game

Finally, settled in.

Sorry for the delay but moving to a new uni takes it's toll! That's all done now and life is grand!

I write this as I wait to start my first real piece of journalism and coincidentally it takes me to Old Trafford on this fine afternoon. United are playing Bolton at 3pm and I thought it was only right that I choose a United based topic: the goalkeeping situation.

With Foster's form questionable at best, van der Sar continuing to age and Kuszczak not up to the task of holding down the number 1 jersey questions are starting to be asked.

Do United need a new 'keeper? Persevere with Foster? Sign van der Sar to another extension?

Who knows but my money is on a new 'keeper in the offing for the Old Trafford faithful. Interesting names have been linked: Akinfeev from CSKA Moscow, Patricio from Sporting Lisbon and David James from Portsmouth (???). We shall see how that one develops.

So my goal for the day is to get fan's views on the subject as my friend goes for the Fergie "Wiley's unfit" row and the reaction from Bolton's fans to Megson defending Sir Alex.

Should be an interesting day. Testing the waters of my journalistic skills. Good times :)
