Would be good to have another American Goalkeeper also called Brad just to confuse the players in training.

Told he can leave?!?!? Ince wants to keep him... Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph: "There is some interest, but Paul Ince's wish is to start the season with Brad Friedel." The keeper played with Ince at Liverpool and recently backed the former Milton Keynes Dons manager's appointment at Rovers. Lets not get ahead of ourselves lads.

I agree DD but I still cant get my head around this one. Can only think there is some kind of coaching role lined up in the deal. Would be great short term competition for Hart, but would be happier if we were looking at other areas of the team to strengthen (ie. right side midfield).

I hope Brad stays and from what Ince has said he wants to keep him.
