    I don’t think you could’ve asked for a better character or player to join Wrexham. Absolute class from Ben. Come on Wrexham!!

    Just a thought: Having a seasoned Premier League professional like Ben, who have had media training, doing the post-match interview, must take some pressure off the other players who don't want to do it. Well done, Ben.

    18 years since I last watched Ben at the Racecourse! Frightening! A great 2nd debut, Ben really gave peace of mind. Experience so apparent from the outset. Great interview, obviously a great guy as well as a great keeper. Fancy a season in League 2 Ben?

    • Jack Clarke
      Jack Clarke 2 months ago +1

      I reckon Parkinson tries to get him to sign on. To have a goalie who was in the Prem just 10 months ago will be massive for League 2.

      Just proves the point that this league needs another promotion spot. The gap between national league and league 2 is non existent at this point it’s about time it’s incorporated into efl league 3

      ​@John Doe went to watch a league 2 game today and I've genuinely seen better quality and more exciting games in the NL. So glad it only got £2 to get in , not the full £22-£25!😲

    Great interview... considered questions, excellent responses. Foster's a class act both on the ptch and on camera.

  • Ardwick House
    Ardwick House 2 months ago +24

    Great positioning, great distribution, pinpoint throwing, great awareness and second choice punching under pressure. Wonderful reading of the game when an attack breaks up. Great footwork and movement as an attack splits to a wing. Very vocal and his timing on jumping effortless. Total natural. The York shot really does expose and separate the men from the boys as regards to making the stop. It was hit with good power and the ex England keeper was equal to it. Some goalkeepers best work comes with age. He’s fit, very agile and a great brain.

    United fan here. Ben is class person and a PL pedigree GK. So glad he came out of retirement to help Wrexham charge through the finish line. Love him at United. Im sure he will be love here in Wrexham too. Good luck for the remaining games. Go get that title lads. I will be rooting for the whole Community💪🏽🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

      Scott Chegg 2 months ago

      He wouldn't have gone to a prem team because he can't throw his camera in the goal. That's why he's at wrexham. And the hollywood owners. If port vale offered him same exact terms etc he would've told em to bounce

    • David Stevens
      David Stevens 2 months ago

      @Scott Chegg The distance was the issue with Newcastle. If a more local club like Wolves or Leicester had come knocking I think he would have signed. Pretty certain he is midlands based.

    I'm a Baggies fan / Ben Foster fanboy 😂😂 I was nervous for him today, nice to see your fans have an unbreakable respect for him. I remember last season, the Watford fans really hated him to the point where I was fighting his corner on social media so please don't be plonkers to him and we'll all get along smoothly 😂😂 hope you guys get 1st place

    • The Tabby Guy
      The Tabby Guy 2 months ago +3

      As a watford fan I love fozzy, instead of bitching about Ben having a life outside playing our fans should have pointed fingers at the board's lack of ambition in the transfer window and their baffling decision to hire a retired Roy Hodgson to try and save us from relegation. That's why we went down, definitely not because of Ben.

    • Dan Hewett

    Have an inkling feeling that Ryan Reynolds and Wrexham would love to have Benny for another season. You have a nice bubbly, down to earth bloke that's not afraid of the camera and he just likes to do what he enjoys best which is to play football.

    • John Doe
      John Doe 2 months ago +9

      Fair play to Wrexham for pulling it off I’m a county fan as much as it kills me to see it fair play what a season it’s been. Regardless of the rivalry we’ve been forced into due to one automatic if you beat us to it I would rather a team like you go up compared to one without the footballing history. I think we can both agree on the fact we both deserve promotion based on the table and the points difference of us compared to the rest. All the best here’s to the best season the national league has ever witnessed.

    • Wayne Shone
      Wayne Shone 2 months ago +1

      @John Doe absolutely, you’ve been top class too, if it wasn’t for county we’d have been sailing, I completely agree it’s the best the national league has ever seen, we both deserve to go up, all the best my man and it’ll be a quality game between us, best of luck 🤝

    • John Doe
      John Doe 2 months ago +2

      @Wayne Shone your right we are only doing as good as we are because of each other forcing us to not drop points and I can’t wait it’s easily the biggest game in national league history.

    • Wayne Shone
      Wayne Shone 2 months ago

      @John Doe it’s making for an exiting season and again it’s disappointing the both of us can’t go up, longstaff is some striker btw, this is propper football down here and honestly I don’t think I’d change a thing about this season

    • John Doe
      John Doe 2 months ago +1

      @Wayne Shone you never know yet we both might end up going up we both deserve it points wise this genuinely is the only season where if anyone else goes up bar us two would be a robbery but that’s the beauty of this league. But Yh wow what a player langstaff is regardless if we get promoted or not he’s going in the summer for some serious money. Our recruitment under our new owners is something else when you consider the likes of palmer Ruben and langstaff and the fact the didn’t cost anything.

      that he financially stable and has been in the game for over 20+ years. I would rather play for a few months with a team that took me on when i was teenager/young adult than go to a team that isn't going to play me in the first team. You might want to go and hear the reasons why he turned down Newcastle, you will learn something!!

    • Dark_Emeralds
      Dark_Emeralds 2 months ago +1

      If you listened to him talk about it, he didn't want to leave his family and kids where he lives and move up to Newcastle on his own. He valued family over money, that tells me all I need to know 'lol'.
