Shay Given knows that only good performance that can keep his place as Newcastle United number one goalkeeper. After having another two caps for United last week, he is willing to work harder to retain his place.
Given recents come back for Newcastle both are end-up with defeats for Newcastle United. Last week on Tuesday, he was conceded two goals against Arsenal on the Carling Cup and three more goals against Manchester City last week-end.
But, on my opinion, his performance at the CoM Stadium was not bad at all. He has several good saves from both Elano and Petrov efforts. As for the goals, I don’t think any goalkeepers in the world can save all those three.
“I was delighted to be recalled and was very happy when the gaffer named the team,” the Republic of Ireland star told the official site.
He also feels sorry for his team mate Steve Harper who have been impressive on several Toon matches. It was clearly that Harper looks disappointed for being on the bench again last Saturday.
Sam Allardyce already understood that we have two high quality goalkeepers and that was a bonus for the team. Whoever installed as the goallie on each Newcastle match, we can assured that we have at least the finests last Toon wall.
Interesting to watch on next Sunday against Everton, who is between them that would be Big Sam choice to guard our goal.
