Do West Ham really need a new keeper?
More rumours in the Sunday Telegraph today that West Ham might be after either Chelsea's Asmir Begovic or Manchester City's Joe Hart next season, if we avoid relegation. Adrian might have been dropped after a mistake against Stoke and some rickets at home to Watford, but I still think he's a really good goalkeeper based on what he's done over the last two seasons. He had forced his way into the Spanish squad and recently had a fine game in the win at Palace. While Darren Randolph is Ireland's number one, and looks really promising too, witness his performance in the draw at Old Trafford. If the keepers have made mistakes it's surely because of the lack of a consistent first-choice back four and the problems at right-back and the loss of Cresswell in pre-season. We should be concentrating on securing a right-back, a midfield leader and some strikers rather than a goalkeeper.
