Well its official - VDS is out for the next eight weeks with a broken finger from the Bayern Munich match.
I for one am really upset for him. Its his last season and what does he miss? His last Community Shield - against Chelski of all clubs. His last season opener. His last ... first match against Arsenal. Its just sad to me.
It is a good chance to see how Foster holds up. If he does well he'll be cementing his place as the new number one for next season. We might even see if Kuszczak can do anything useful. Probably not - but I think his usefulness will be cemented as well. I think we should definitely sign a new keeper over next summer but that this is just the test Foster needs to really shine.
We'll see what happens Sunday.
Also - lets discuss Tevez. It seems that after acting like an ass all summer - whining about treatment under Fergie and how he never got to start - he's gone and fallen on his and won't be starting in a match right away. He slipped in the shower and aggravated a heel problem. City is saying he might be fit for the season opener but since he hasn't been able to train I sincerely doubt he'll see too much time on the pitch his first match as a City man. Not that I'm particularly bothered.
