Foster not in trouble for using iPod

The Manchester United backup goalkeeper pulled up pictures on his iPod of Tottenham players taking PKs the other day.

He pulled them up right before a shootout against the Spurs for the Carling Cup championship.

Turns out, it's not a problem. The FA will take no action.
Former Premier League referee Graham Poll told the Daily Mail on Monday that using iPod technology “had the potential to exploit a loophole in the laws which should be referred to FIFA”.

An FA spokesman said: “What happened was not against the rules so we will not be investigating the matter further.”
For my money, Foster opened up a can of worms. Every keeper in the league should download that ap -- or however the kids say it these days.

Oh, and Foster? He just got a new deal.
