Red Light For Green Move
Poor Robert Green, it seems that his whole career slipped through his fingers, along with our chances in the World Cup, when he made a monumental hash of trying to save that "shot" in the USA game. Wenger immediately thought better of signing him. Let's face it, he already has Almunia and Fabianski so why does he need another butter fingered keeper?
Woy's departure to Liverpool was also bad news for Gween. You would back Woy to wehabilitate Wob in the quiet backwaters of Cwaven Cottage, but he is hardly going to wisk him in the bwight glare of Anfield is he? And anyway, with Popeye Weina at the club, Woy doesn't need another keeper does he?
So where does Rob go from here? Tottenham don't need him. Nor do Everton. Newcastle might see him as an improvement on Harper but are unlikely to waste money when the differential is so minuscule. Maybe Villa? But there has been no whiff of a link.
18 months ago, Green could have had his pick of a host of clubs but a mediocre (or some would say poor) season had put paid to that, even before that catastrophic clanger. Now it looks as if Green is stuck at West Ham and that West Ham are stuck with Green.
Let's hope Avram can rebuild Green's confidence. He is not an international keeper and never has been - as I always maintained. But he was a very competent Premiership keeper with outstanding shot stopping ability. The worry is, how much that error will undermine his confidence generally. Robinson was a nervous wreck for 12 months after his nightmare moment; let's hope Green can quickly put the recent past behind him and recover his form of old.
