View on Neil Sullivan

Neil Sullivan is set to replace Ian Walker as Tottenham's number one goalkeeper! Sullivan has spent the majority of his footballing life at Wimbledon, but he left the club on a Bosman at the end of last season as the Dons were relegated. interestingly, Neil did become the first player Spurs had bought on a Bosman!

Sullivan's qualities lye in his physical presence! He is a big goalkeeper and is vocal. He can demand a lot from his defence and though sometimes he can produce the odd mistake, Neil is very reliable! Sullivan is currently Scotland's number one goalkeeper and played against England in last years Play Offs at both Hampden Park and at Wembley!
