Right, I'm going to irritate a few now, even more than usual. Foster should play in the final because Foster is the better keeper. I love Gomes as a personality, I love his enthusiam and I get that this would be the perfect end to his career. But we may not be in a cup final again in many of our lifetimes. You have to go with your best team. I know he "hasn't let us down" but at this level you can't justify picking your 38 yr old pre-retirement reserve keeper simply as he hasn't made a mistake. At this level that should be pretty much a given. You can't "blame" him for either of the goals we conceded, but at this level it's about how many "unsavable saves" your keeper makes. Like the late save Foster made against Fulham. No-one would have blamed him if that had gone in, but he saved it....and countless others this season. Am I alone in thinking that Foster may have intercepted the cross to Doherty for the first goal ? Look how close to the goal line the header was. The second goal, would Foster have got there a little quicker and made himself bigger than Gomes did and so have a better chance of blocking ? Look how narrow Gomes' shape is as the ball passes him As I say I wouldn't blame him for either but I think the very best keepers might have excelled and prevented either or both. It didn't matter and conceding two led to an amazing match. I loved his emotion on the pitch and even the artificial over-choreographed dives following the 2 shots he pushed over the bar. Despite the noises coming from the players themselves, I would really hope we play our best keeper on the 18th May.
