Foster’s time wasting began the day Pulis walked into the Hawthorns. That particular finger can’t be pointed at him whatever the truth about how he left us. He was just doing what he was instructed to do.

I do tend to agree with this.

Foster was for the most part ace for us. I miss him and wish him well.

He was the best keeper in my opinion,thanks for that,but went down in my estimation with the way he left.

I think Fosters reasons for leaving us are absolute rubbish,i would have respected him more if he had just said he wanted to remain playing in the premier league,instead of making up vague comments to justify his move to Watford of course of which he had to do especially after making out he and is family were practically Albion fans,having said this he is probably the best keeper ive seen at the Albion,and ive seen everyone from John Osbourne onwards

I do miss Foster because he was a character who helped galvinise the defence together and he was local to the region. I think its important to have a few Midlanders at the core of the club to connect better with the fanbase.

is it possible he was one of the problems in the dressing room that led to the bad culture we had/still potentially have bits of ?

I think he was the main man in the ‘clique’ remember what Odemwingie said about him and his bullying, looks like he was right all along.

Good keeper but still not up there with Osborne, Holt, Godden and Miller in my book,out for along time injured and was well looked after so his poor attitude at the end was hard to take. I reckon he has stayed living in Stratford as his commute is not that much longer to Watford so i guess he is the real winner. Player power wins again.

Can't see why you keep beating yourselves up over this creep.
He was good when he was here, he was well paid and looked after, he's left after leading everyone to believe this was the only place for him.
Let it go, lets support the players we have here now.

He couldn't play 46 championship games with his knees and moved on, get over it. The animosity towards a great former player is unreal.

Championship being the key word here,he will be fine to play 36 games in the premiership though

The animosity is understandable given how he was coming out with the loyalty statements whilst behind the scenes angling for his move away ala Paul Robinson. If he had been honest from the start there would be no animosity. For all his faults at least McClean had the balls to be honest.

No reason to tell people to "get over it" at all.

Ben just clattered into Hazard, giving away a penalty.

Which was dispatched with ease by Hazard.

Bit reckless from Ben

Your description reminds me of that night at Villa Park which I still have not forgiven him for.

Good keeper but a crap house. Seems to be doing well for Watford by all accounts.

Foster had one of those games yesterday that he occasionally had for us where he needlessly charges off his line and is beaten by Hazard giving him the easiest of finishes. Poor for the pen too.

Shame really but every keeper has a bad performance in him. He's had some great games for Watford this season too (judging by MOTD highlights). Still a quality keeper.

Watford and Burnley's clash was a full-blooded affair with excellent performances from both goalkeepers Tom Heaton and Ben Foster, as well as some poor finishing from each side

We'd be top if Foster stayed, just the much superior command of his box over Johnstone is worth a hell of a lot of points for us that we've lost.

There were times when I honestly would have put myhill in over foster, there were also times when foster really kept us in games/got us the points

There has never once this season when I have felt comfortable with our keeper (in league matches)

He didnt want to go, he was told of our intentions and pretty much had to leave

He wanted to go as soon as we were down I was told, that came from someone with connections to the dressing room.
