Brad Friedel Agrees To Join Tottenham On Two-Year Deal

Tottenham have just agreed a deal with the National Goalkeeping Museum that will allow them to display an ancient American relic betwixt the sticks at White Hart Lane next season – or something like that.

Friedel’s contract at Villa is due to expire on the last day of June, and Spurs have confirmed that they have muscled in ahead of Liverpool and West Brom and shook hands with the 40-year-old stopper over a two-year deal.

Said ‘Arry this very morn:

“It is good to have three such experienced top goalkeepers at the club in [Heurelho] Gomes, Carlo [Cudicini] and now Brad.

“It means we have competition for places, particularly with the number of games we’ll hopefully face next year.”

Any thoughts folks?

    As a West Brom fan, I feel we’ve dodged a bullet here to be honest. He just seems like a (significantly) more experienced version of Scotty Carson, prone to the same kind of errors

    really good keeper funny question why didn’t arsenal take a crack at him considering there current comedy keeper selection.

  3. romfordray says:

    because he is 41, which in wenger years makes him 51.

    But lenham? Is 40ish right?

    The question is who will be our keeper next year… Guzan? I don’t think he’s ready.

  6. sukrut says:

    i bet he will sign a 5yr extension next year

  7. Paul McGuigan says:

    Bad news for Tottenham’s young goalkeepers.

  8. Ceezer says:

    Brad IS better than Gomes on anyday. I would almost question Gomes for match fixing after watching his blooper reel of drops and mistakes. I would almost say that Gomes is the worst starting keeper for any team in the league.

    Brad friedel is actually an amazingly staunch keeper and im glad to see him at a better club than villa, spurs will put good use to the greatest american keeper of all time
