At a time when the club seems to be shrouded in doom (IPO, owners, failed attempts at signings), last night’s entertaining but goalless draw against Barcelona provided a stark reminder that Fergie will have one hell of a problem next year: his goalkeeper.

Man United’s goalkeeping turn – from Crompton to Johnstone

Manchester United’s academy is famous worldwide. Its reputation for producing top level professional footballers is, thanks to the Ferguson era, unparalleled amongst England’s elite clubs. However, history shows this is no new phenomenon – Louis Rocca famously set up the Manchester United Junior Athletic Club (MUJAC) in the 1930s and Sir Matt Busby’s team of ‘babes’ was built upon home-produced talent.

One area of production that United haven’t quite perfected though is goalkeepers. The club have only ever produced four goalkeepers who’ve gone on to get a full international cap. However, times are changing and at last goalkeeper production appears to be taking a positive turn. To what extent is this luck and why have United not produced more top level goalkeepers?

Why Two May Go Into One Goal This Season

AUTHOR: – Bricki
It’s a brave new era at Old Trafford this season, the loss of Van Der Sar as established number one has left as big a gap as when Roy Keane or Cristiano Ronaldo moved on.

The big money signing of David De Gea would suggest that he is the future for Manchester United between the sticks but this season could see a genuine battle for the starting spot at No. 1.

Despite the wishes of many Man United fans, Edwin van der Sar is retiring this summer and the club are looking to replace him. There have been many rumours about who this could be but the biggest indication of who Edwin’s replacement might be is in The Times today…

How Edwin Van Der Sar changed the role of the Keeper at United

Posted on March 03, 2011  by Bricki  in Bricki, Goalkeepers, Man United, Players   1 Comment »

AUTHOR: — Bricki

With the announcement that Edwin Van Der Sar will hang up his gloves and return to Holland at the end of the season, the question appears to be… Who will replace the Dutchman?

Every major and emerging Goalkeeper in Europe has been mentioned but im not going to look at them in this article. I feel it is more pertinent to look at the way that Van Der Sar has changed the role of Goalkeeper at the Club and the impact it has had.

Edwin Van der Sar

Manchester United’s #1, Edwin Van der Sar has confirmed he will retire at the end of this season. This ends speculation surrounding his future and is almost certain to mean United will now be linked with all the top goalkeepers around the world.

I have returned from a weekend getaway, which means Stretty Stories is back for another week. While Manchester United was busy getting a fantastic result against Liverpool over the weekend, there was still plenty of news surrounding Old Trafford. Today’s Stretty Stories will include today’s news plus some of the top stories from the weekend.

Van der Sar
I am pleased to announce we will be hosting a Stretford-End XI for a bit of fun during the holiday season. Each day we will have a poll to determine who you believe the best Manchester United player is for each position, and at the end we will list the Stretford-End XI picked by you the readers. Today we’ll be starting with goalkeepers. Each of our three candidates is highly qualified, all having won a European title with United. Of course those three are Alex Stepney, Peter Schmeichel, and Edwin van der Sar.

The big news today is Javier Hernandez’s impending debut in Houston tonight. Also, David Gill continues to insists funds are available, Blackpool is set to miss out on Cleverly, and Sir Alex has his sights set on the “new Schmeichel.”

I know for some people, such as myself, the match tonight is on at a fairly reasonable time. However, those of you in Europe and other parts of the world where kickoff is at an unreasonable time, I want to see how many will stay up to see United’s newest player.
