Another Reason To Love Robert Green ...

Er, well, not literally ! But take a look at this photo of Greeny calling out the play-acting Nani during last Saturday's 4-1 Hammers' capitulation at Old Trafford. We have had some good keepers during the recent years -- Shaka Hislop, David James, Ludo Miklosko ... and if you go back to Phil Parkes, there's a fine tradition of Hammers' shot-stoppers to choose from. Tony McDonald, the proprietor of EX magazine, has rightly pointed out that Parkes' lack of more England caps is a travesty, but we might have a keeper who can get a dozen or so games for Ol' Blighty if he stays in form over the next few seasons. Greeny's appearance on the subs' bench in the Paris friendly v. France was a good sign, and the lads and I actually saw him play for Sven's England v. Colombia in New York. (Actually, it was New Jersey, but nevermind.) One Robert Green! There's only one Robert Green!
