Should Seaman stay between the sticks? Who could replace him? It's your shout..
Should Seaman stay between the sticks? Who could replace him? It's your shout...
Last week we asked you 'Should David Seaman still be England's No.1...or should Sven try out James, Martyn, Robinson...or someone else?'
Here are some of your views...
"It may be time to draw down the curtain on his England career and to replace him with a younger more agile goalkeeper but it also time to pay homage to his incredible achievements."
I think that, as much as I hate to say it - this spells the end for David Seaman. We have a very youthful set up now, and it is a good chance to let Paul Robinson stake his claim.
A distinguished career for David, quite a few winners medals and possibly one of the best keepers to wear the three lions on his chest. Should he retire? Well it is up to him and nobody else. Just because he is 38 years of age, does not mean he is too old. At 18 was Michael Owen too young, NO.
If you look at his replacements; James: he had a barren spell for Liverpool where he could not catch a ball but he has bounced back, Robinson: recently conceded 4 against Arsenal, although not his fault it is bound to dent your confidence but he bounced back just like Seaman has in the past.
When you talk about replacements I think there can be only one Chris Kirkland. The young lad proved himself at Coventry and although he does not get many games for L'Pool he is still outstanding

Robinson should be our goalkeeper, as he is playing great in the Premiership for Leeds. He is commanding and his presence can be felt and he has more agility then Seaman lets face it how long has he got left?
Why is Seaman still between the sticks? It's a mystery I'm not saying this because he's past it but he's managed to keep going for so long. He is still the best keeper England has got but eventually he's going to run out of steam. At the moment I don't think that Paul Robinson is a patch on Seaman. It's the age-old story of Robinson being able to play so well for Leeds but when he pulls on his England shirt it all goes down the pan. Keep it up Seamo!!!

With McManaman back in form, is he the man to fill the left hand side role? Or can someone else do so?
