Fulham - Stockdale Earns His Stripes
After hearing the news that Schwarzer was probably not going to make the Everton game, I was in favour of Stockdale starting instead of Zuberbuhler.
So, after hearing the team news yesturday, I was pleased to see the young goalkeeper given his chance. It's fair to say, he didn't let anyone down.
The goal he conceded was simply unstoppable as it was another Tim Cahill bullet header. However, he showed he had a good touch and a massive kick. He saved a couple of testing Everton chances and he looked calm and composed throughout.
Hopefully this is the start of David Stockdale's ascent to be Mark Schwarzer's long term replacement as No.1 goalkeeper.
