Tim Howard does not think he’ll have a future at Old Trafford and I can’t blame him. He’s a classic example of those who got the chance and have blown it. The American goalkeeper is currently on loan to Everton and he picked the ball out of his net three times yesterday against Chelsea so most of us won’t be sorry to see his back, to be honest. With Edwin van der Sar signed a new contract, Howard reckons Sir Alex Ferguson does not want him.

‘The contract is fantastic news for Edwin, I’d imagine United would be delighted to keep him for as long as he’s fit,’ Howard said.

‘But it affects my mind-set, of course. It’s like a game of chess. United have made their move and it tells me what I need to do next.’

“But without question, if it doesn’t happen for me at United it can happen somewhere else.”


I believe it was never going to be different after his horrible blunder had led to our exit from the Champions League against Porto in 2004. He’s never really recovered from that mistake.
