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!
