Fraser Forster has only played three games against strong opposition (Barcelona, Arsenal, Fiorentina) in his entire career.I really can't see how someone who is not even good enough for the bench at Newcastle could be considered International standard.
I don't care who you are or how good you are, I'm of the opinion that you should never turn your back on your country. I'd much rather have Forster, Ruddy, Butland than Foster (and this is coming from a Man Utd fan!).
Biddey - Shouldn't players be chosen on form not reputation?
The same people saying England fans are fickle seem to be the same ones who think Hart suddenly isn't good enough to be in the side despite being excellent for at least 3 seasons. A few mistakes doesn't make a bad player. He will learn from any blips in his career and get better.
150. Why would you ask not to play for your country?There are umpteen reasons why a player may not be willing to play for his country, temporarily or ever. Foster made his reasons quite clear. Can't we all just agree that Foster is a grown man and is allowed to what he feels is best for him? If you don't agree with it fine, but let him do his own career decisions, or is Foster judging yours?
As an Albion fan I think he is superb, one of the best, as an England fan he is prone to the odd clanger. Recently, Hart has been prone to the odd clanger and more. We don't have a keeper who isn't slightly dubious at times. I think that Fraiser Forster should have played in the last few friendlies to see if he is good enough outide of playing Dundee, St Mirren etc
Playing for England should always be rewarded to those on form... Ben has been excellent all season, unfortunately Joe's form has dipped... perhaps due to complacency. I still think Joe is our no.1, based on how good i know he can be, however on merit alone Ben deserves this call up... christ guys he's one of our own, lets get behind him!
There is perhaps 1 England goalie, who would make it in the german Bundesliga and if Gerhard Tremmel, a better german 2nd division goalie is THE MAN of the Swans ... what shall I say x
Fraser Forster is better than any them.
160 - sorry, I have to disagree. Foster's distribution is top notch and has resulted in numerous goals this season and last, most recently our second against Sunderland last weekend.
