Would Fraser Forster make a good third choice?

Would Fraser Forster make a good third choice?


Southampton and England goalkeeper Fraser Forster is out in the cold at the South Coast club and doesn't fit in with the new coach's plans.

The former RB Leipzig manager, Ralph Hasenhüttl, said today in his pre-game press conference that the former England stopper, he gained 6 full international caps, would play for the Under-23team so prospective buyers could have a look at him.

The question is would he make a good signing as third-choice goalkeeper or would his wages be too much?

He is a 30-year-old (31 in March) now but has been st on a bench for a year, although he did sign a new contract in 2017 to take him until 2022 so may be too expensive for a number three.

Forster lost his place after we beat them 5-2 on 28 December 2017. The following game was against Manchester United where he was dropped to the bench and stayed there until the end of the season.

  1. No idea how expensive he would be, but he's a good quality keeper. Would he be happy as a #3? I certainly believe we could do worse.

    As for the English (trained) player concept, I think we know now how important that is. You explained it seasons ago but it's hit us already and we need to get away from that hole. Many players talked about for us to get to replace outgoing players, but most of the quality ones are foreign trained.

    A question for you - How old do our players have to be to count in that regard. We have a whole academy full of English trained players but I assume we can't just name them. My thinking is they're too young. What's the SP?
