Friedel at Villa too? Poor Guzan

26 07 2008

It’s official.  Brad Friedel signed a three-year contract with Aston Villa for an undisclosed sum, leaving Blackburn after an eight-year stint.  But what does this mean for Brad Guzan? The reigning MLS Goalkeeper of the Year recently transferred to Villa as well.  It was thought that he would have to compete with current Villa player Stuart Taylor for starting honors (Scott Carson, former goalkeep, has moved on), but seems like he now has to beat out American/Premier League veteran Brad Friedel as well.  Bummer for Guzan.  What do you think are Guzan’s chances of winning? Let the battle of the Brad’s commence.
