Missing In Action: Shay Given

Last seen: 24 April, 2009 – A 0-0 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

At Clean Sheets HQ we use the term ‘action’ very loosely. Shay Given hasn’t seen a pair of gloves, let alone start for Manchester City, since he dislocated his shoulder towards the end of last season. Anyone who has kept half an eye on the Premier League over the past decade will know that the 34-year-old shot stopper is truly top class. He may have a warm bum but the Irishman certainly won’t enjoy occupying the bench for much longer.

The Future: Understudy to the baby-faced Joe Hart, Shay will certainly be looking for a move away in January. A trip across Manchester to succeed the ageless Edwin van der Sar? A transfer to Liverpool to replace a United-bound Pepe Reina? Either way, he’s on his way.
