Friedel About To Break PL Record

Friedel About To Break PL Record

167 and not out.

Brad Friedel will beat David James record for the number of consecutive appearances in the Premier League. Assuming Martin O'Neill doesn't bench him (!!!!) Friedel will have played 167 PL games in a row.



Martin O'Neill said in the Independent: 'It is remarkable in this day and age, whether you are a keeper or not, to play that number of games consecutively. It is fantastic. Well done to him. During the last eight or nine years, from leaving Liverpool to the career he has had at Blackburn, Brad Friedel has been so consistent. Last year was maybe his best ever season and he wants to try and emulate that this year for us.'

Congratulations to Brad Friedel from all at Vital Villa and I'm sure most from Vital Blackburn Rovers!

Fair play to the guy, he hates missing games. not that I can see why a GK might need 'resting' anyway...but it's good that he's taking care of his body.

great record - good on him, shame he'll be picking the ball out of the net on Saturday!

I was gonna say it was easier for a keeper until I recalled our own Cech and Cudicini at Reading :-(

He deserves all of the plaudits quite rightly coming his way. A consistently performing top keeper, undeniably one of the best in the top flight down the years.

Thats a nice little gesture Mikey D. Good to see you guys up there taking time out from your current woes to pass on your regards to your ex-keeper.
