Foster: Man United 'the wrong place at the wrong time' but Watford FA Cup win would mean everything

Ben Foster has told ESPN FC that FA Cup glory with Watford this season would mean more than the success he experienced with Manchester United after admitting that he struggled to cope with the ruthless drive for silverware under Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

Foster, 36, has enjoyed one of the best seasons of his career this term after leaving relegated West Bromwich Albion for Javi Gracia's Watford last summer.

The former England goalkeeper could now have been United's established first-choice...

Arsenal's new style doesn't suit Petr Cech - Watford's Ben Foster

Watford's Ben Foster feels sorry for Petr Cech after seeing the Arsenal goalkeeper struggle with playing the ball out from the back.

Foster told BBC's Radio 5 Live that it is hard for a veteran goalkeeper to suddenly change his game, with Cech being asked to take an active part in Arsenal's passing game by coach Unai Emery.

Cech's mistakes with his feet nearly cost his team against Manchester City and Cardiff City, although the 36-year-old has also bailed Arsenal out with a number of key saves.

Ben Foster's injury an 'enormous worry' for West Brom - Tony Pulis

Ben Foster aggravated a knee injury while playing with his children, West Brom coach Tony Pulis said.

West Brom coach Tony Pulis revealed a knee injury kept Ben Foster out of Monday night's 1-1 draw at Leicester.

Albion have yet to determine the extent of the injury, which the 34-year-old goalkeeper sustained during the international break while playing in the garden with his children.

However, Pulis admitted he is worried about the problem given Foster missed 10 months in the 2015-16 season with anterior cruciate ligament damage.

To compound his goalkeeping problems, stand-in Boaz Myhill, making...

West Brom stumble toward finish after having Europe in sight

West Brom's season was very much in three parts, a poor beginning and end bookmarked by a four-month spell from November to February that ultimately resulted in a successful season with a top-half finish.

Rating out of 10: 8


West Brom's 2-1 win over Leicester at the King Power stadium was what really kickstarted their season. Matt Phillips had looked short on confidence following his summer move from Queens Park Rangers, but his assist and then winning goal in this fixture seemed to ignite...
