Another week and two more reality checks in the difficult footballing life of Ben Foster. If Wednesday's baptism of fire at Celtic Park was not challenge enough, the Manchester United keeper discovered before it that his manager believes Edwin van der Sar, the 38-year-old ahead of him in the pecking order, has yet another year at the top in him.

Manchester United's slow start to the season is nothing to worry about and the signing of Dimitar Berbatov has given them extra attacking options, their Dutch goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has said.

Juande Ramos, the Tottenham manager, underlined the uncertainty surrounding Dimitar Berbatov's future yesterday when he said he would make a late decision on whether he will feature for Spurs against Middlesbrough at the Riverside on Saturday. Meanwhile, Hull City's confidence that they will take Manchester United's young striker Frazier Campbell on loan again contributes to a sense that the Bulgarian's move to Old Trafford may be imminent.

Chelsea confirmed the signing of Portugal midfielder Deco from Barcelona last night. The playmaker had recently been told by the Catalan club he did not feature in their plans and had been linked with a move to the west London club regularly in recent years.

He terrorised Premier League defenders for over a decade, now he has a different challenge to face – but none of it is as important to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as building schools in Africa.

If a response to this summer's irritatingly persistent BBC query "Who will you support?" had been elicited at the fag end of the last millennium, there would have been no doubt about our instinctive response. It had to be Holland, didn't it? The nation that speaks English better than many Britons; a nation with an interesting line in coffee shops and attitudes towards sex; and, from a footballing point of view, a nation which, given its freedom by the school of Johan Cruyff, was the one England (and the other home countries) would most like to be.

Sir Alex Ferguson was a man in a hurry yesterday, keen to leave Manchester for Cheltenham before much of the morning was out. But he admitted before doing so that sending Ben Foster out for his full debut at Derby today represented a serious punt. "In terms of the match side of it obviously we don't know [how he will fare]... because he has only had one reserve game," said Ferguson. "But he has so many assets that I am confident about it."

The fashion photographer Rankin and Chris Cottam co-direct this tale of a foundling who descends on Green Lanes, north London, creating havoc among a coterie of lowlifes. Is it an angel, a lucky mascot, or just a kid with a curly mop? Marc Warren as a transvestite priest and James Cosmo as a thickly accented Mr Big are the recognisable faces, though why they'd want to be recognised is a mystery; the quarter-witted script (by Tony Grisoni) and risible storyline would make most actors run for the hills. "Muddled" is the polite word, balderdash the preferred one.

It is said a good referee is one who does not get noticed. On that basis Graham Poll must be a terrible ref. Anonymity is not, however, a luxury afforded to the modern Premiership referee, and especially not to the country's leading official. Poll knows that, and while there are strong grounds for believing he generally enjoys the attention, the Tring official will not have relished being in the eye of the storm this week. He would rather be recognised for excellence than the criticism he has drawn from Chelsea and Everton.

Arsenal's improbable dream of winning the European Cup ended in a frustrating, emotionally-drained defeat to Barcelona last night with captain Thierry Henry raging against the performance of referee Terje Hauge, and manager Arsène Wenger saying that one of his assistants had acted "suspiciously".
