JFK - Shay rocks

In light of his barnstorming performance v the Rent Boys on Saturday, Joe Kinnear has pulled no punches in claiming he`s got the best keeper in the Premier League. Our interim manager, who became our first boss to claim a point at Chelsea since Sir Bobby, said:

"In my opinion, and indeed in the eyes of a lot of people, and with due respect to the likes of Petr Cech and Edwin van de Sar, we have the top goalkeeper in the Premier League in Shay Given. Our game plan was built around the fact that we knew we did not have to concede an early goal, and Shay`s save from Frank Lampard was out of this world and seemed to inspire the defenders in front of him.

When something out of the ordinary happens you need a great keeper, and Shay`s reaction save so early in the game was nothing short of superb. I think Chelsea were about 10-1 on to win. We know everybody wrote us off before the match, but we could not help that.

Our players are professionals and they rolled up their sleeves and put in a professional performance, as we did not let our supporters down. Not many teams are going to come to Chelsea and not lose and this has given everybody a lift and will boost our confidence for Saturday."
