Fosters England hope

Ben Foster is desperate to impress his new team Birmingham City and hopes to re-ignite his international career with England. The 27-year-old left Manchester United with the hope of playing regularly in the first team, having missed out on a place at the World Cup finals due to a lack of opportunities at Old Trafford. He told in an interview: "It was what cost me at the end of the day. I was not on the plane to South Africa and I couldn't argue with the manager's decision. I'd played one game in seven months before the World Cup. I saw Mr Capello at a few matches with United last season and he asked me what was going on and things like that. I think he will be fairly pleased that I will be looking to play some first-team football now. He did play me in a few games, so he did see something in me that he quite likes, so with the chance to play first-team football, hopefully I'll be able to get back in there again."

Good on him... Stop making so many mistakes and could be Englands slighty poorer version of Shay Given

Throw enough sh-it at the wall and some of it will stick,
but make no mistake, Your wall's still covered in sh-it
