I hate Manure but good luck to Howard! I hope Howard plays when I see him at the end of the month when Manure plays Juventus!

So what is going to happen to Barthez?

The most likely option is that he starts (for now) while Howard becomes his understudy. However, the article didn't get rid of the option of Howard unseating Barthez as the starter.

Manure plays so many games that Howard should play a few no matter what because they will want to give Barthez a few games off. However, I think Manure should loan Howard out to either Sporting Lisbon or Royal Antwerp (their two loaner clubs) so he could get more experience. Lisbon would be the best option because they play European soccer this year.

Oh I see. So Howard would be Barthez's apprentice for the meantime. Howard CAN become the ebst US Goal Keeper ever if he can learn.
