Given staying put

Newcastle's number one goal keeper had a frustrating season last season suffering from various niggling injuries however he has been ably deputised by the ever impressive Steve Harper.

Given has been a fantastic servant to the club and it is good to see that he is going to stay despite alleged interest from Wenger and Arsenal.

he is the ******in best keeper in the premiership, why not play him as soon as he is barely fit? well why risk him when harper was playin so sharply? we have two of the best keeps in the prem, find two others with the same ability and dedication to their club, impossible. respect. booyakasha
