Fraser Forster or The Scottish Football Thread.

Jeremiah 5:21


Hello. I’m a Celtic fan posting im peace regarding our loan signing from Newcastle goalkeeper Fraser Forster. At the end of the 09/10 season our best goalkeeper Artur Boruc was transferred to Fiorentina. Celtic fans were sad due to a modern Celtic legend leaving. We had a more than capable replacement as our sub keeper was his fellow Polish man Lukasz Zaluska but there was divided opinion about him and we needed another keeper as a sub. So we hunted and tried to get former magpie Shay Given but it didnt happen sadly. So we looked to Reserve newcastle keeper Fraser Forster who we signed on loan. At first we knew nothing about him and only went on what Sunderland fans were saying on our Forum. We thought he would just be a temporary sub keeper but he became our first keeper with Zaluska dropping to the bench due to a really bad CL and EL qualifying results. So in came the tallest player of Celtics 121 year history at 6’7. We inicially thought he would be a dud due to his height and lack of games for Newcastle instead he turned out to have Celtics best Clean sheet record which has impressed us though we have had one of the best defences too of our history. I know some dont rate the spl here but Fraser having our best clean sheet record must mean something. Regardless anyway he was technically one of Celtics best ever keepers ever. Some fellow Celtic fans may disagree. Forster has also saved us on many occasions and he has great reactions and works great with one on ones. The only downside is that he cant command his box well and never comes out for corners and his penalty stopping could improve. I would like to see him back next season or for a numeber of years. Thank You for such a great player.
