Ben Foster Insists Relegation Would Break His Son’s Heart

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has admitted that the failure to beat the Premier League drop would break a lot of hearts including his Baggies-supporting son. The west Midlands outfit are currently seven points adrift of Premier League, and they face a must-win game at Watford in order to salvage their season.

Ben Foster Happy with Clean Sheet against Liverpool

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster says that the clean sheet against Liverpool will act as a huge confidence boost for the club going into the next game against Manchester United. It was an extremely important result for West Brom, who remain without a victory under Alan Pardew. West Brom were able to frustrate Liverpool and ended up getting a goalless draw. This result is much more important in the form of a clean sheet for the team, as it represents a great deal of confidence going into a match against Manchester United. Even though United have not been the greatest scorers this season, the team will create a lot of chances – especially if they find themselves trailing at any point in the game.

Ben Foster says that coming out of a clean sheet against Liverpool is not an easy feat, as the team managed by Jurgen Klopp can be quite scary at times. Liverpool have the best offence in the division with players like Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane being able to rip apart any opponent that comes their way. Foster has likened Liverpool’s attack to that of Manchester City, who have been leading the table by a considerable margin. Foster admitted that these teams will continue to possess a great deal of threat going forward due to the vast budgets.

Foster believes in the new-look West Brom squad

Ben Foster believes the current West Bromwich Albion squad is the best he is worked with since they finished eighth in the Premier League five years ago under former boss Steve Clarke.

The Baggies goalkeeper has been impressed with the transfer dealings and how the new boys have adapted. He is also happy at how the club appear to have covered up all of the squad weaknesses with a plethora of new signings.

Ben Foster delighted with Kieran Gibbs and Gareth Barry signings

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has revealed his delight at the arrivals of Kieran Gibbs and Gareth Barry during the summer transfer window.


The duo have quickly integrated into Tony Pulis' side, who have made a strong start to the Premier League season.

The Baggies were initially slow picking their targets in the summer, but they eventually ended up as one of the big winners with the likes of Grzegorz Krychowiak brought in before the transfer deadline. In a report covered by The Express and Star, Foster appear to share a similar view on the transfer business with the club now having sufficient depth in their squad.

Tony Pulis Admits Huge Luck in Victory over Burnley

West Brom manager Tony Pulis claimed that his team often rode the luck in the match against Burnley.


The team managed a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor, which has been a fortress for the club up until now. The result did not tell the whole story, as the home team were able to create numerous chances over the course of the game. Yet, the inability to finish off the chances coupled with West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster being on top form helped West Brom come away with three points. Tony Pulis has not tried to defend his three points, and said that there was a major element of luck in this victory.

ENGLAND HOPE FOR MORE UNDER-AGE SUCCESS

England are set to continue the work that has brought them recent successes in age grade tournaments. The nation was excited when the Under-20 side won the World Youth Championship in June. The Under-19 side won the continental European championships and the Under-21 side reached the last four of the UEFA tournament.

The Under-17 side have been drawn into a group for the forthcoming FIFA U-17 World Cup in India in October. The England manger of that age grade Steve Cooper has reportedly reached the FA team and plans are underway to ensure the country continues to enjoy its new found momentum in age grade events.

FOSTER GETTING CREDITS AFTER DECENT RUN

Ben Foster is getting credits for his return this season – some say it is his best in a West Bromwich Albion shirt. The Supporters’ club named him as the most outstanding player at an awards evening.


“He’s been superb all season, hasn’t he,” club chief John Homer said.

“He’s so consistent and he’s saved us a lot of points this season. I think it’s been his best season in an Albion shirt because it’s been uninterrupted,” he added. Homer added that Foster has matured into a fine keeper and that he has fought off the competition from Craig Dawson.

BEN FOSTER HAILS TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster has hailed Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur as the best team he opines that they have played this term. Tottenham Hotspur hit four past Foster when they clashed and it seems he is still stunned.


After narrow losses to Arsene Wenger and Antonio Conte’s men, Tony Pulis set up the team to play defensive but Mauricio Pochettino’s men hammered them 4-0. Foster said he remains impressed with their attacking prowess.
