Joe Hart played for Shrewsbury Town from 2003 to 2006 54 times before signing for Man City .
He made his debut for City in a boring goalless draw against Sheffield United on Oct 14th 2006. He has now gone on loan to Torino and there are doubts whether he will ever play again for City. He became number one for City in 2010 and made his international debut in 2008. He has won four 'Golden Glove 'awards and has over 60 international caps. I have looked through all the many games I have seen Joe play and picked out a selection of images of him in action. There are links to the actual games for those interested.
