David de Stayer?

David de Gea, without a doubt, has been our Player of our Season. He has made breathtaking saves and produced moments of out-of-this-world goalkeeping. Saves just keep on rolling as he just gets better and better which clarifies why he is the current number 1 for the Spanish national team.

He has matured so much in the last few years, we all remember the youthful and inexperienced scrawny lad who showed up in the premier league as a pushover, the likes of Andy Carroll and Peter Crouch would feel pleasured to out jump the youngster, but Sir Alex Ferguson has a clever insight to the potential of Mr De Gea, and hasn’t he proven to be prodigious!

This season David de Gea has been the go to guy for crosses, managing a staggering 94% claim success also showing his attributes are analogous to a brick wall, sturdy and strong with 2.11 average saves before a goal. 10 clean sheets also round of the fact that De Gea has single handily managed the situation with the back four with ease, without the help of Van Gaal failing to bring in another world class defender, although it looks increasingly likely that will be the case.

Of late, the best keeper in the world on form is De Gea, which is probably the reason why the current European champions Real Madrid are heavily interested, with heavy rumours De Gea has agreed a deal.

This may not be true due to greediness of agents today, also bare in mind a transfer ban may be on the cards for the galacticos. The truth is, David de Gea is our must keep this summer, possibly saving us over 30 points this season, can anyone else do that with a constantly revolving back four or three?

There are three main options which can take place this summer, two possibly leading to us gaining or losing. The first option is to get a big money, long contract signed and sealed and forget about Real Madrid, our big Spanish keeper will be at the helm of our defence and the gloves between the sticks.

The second option is a swap deal, Gareth Bale has been abused like a prisoner out in Madrid, and very harshly too. Its clear it isn’t a right fit, get him back to Britain where he belongs and give them De Gea, although cash on United’s half is inevitable on that deal, and can Bale win us over 30 points?

The third and final option is sell him for big bucks and bring in a equal replacement, Asmir Begovic has been linked but a keeper like Cech who is a certainty to leave this summer would bring experience and for a bargain price, but age is a major problem. No one wants to see big Dave depart the North of England, we love him and respect him but as United fans, huge players have left, (annoyingly, most to Real Madrid!) Beckham, Ronaldo and Ruud Van Nistlerooy have all left United sadly and we got over it, and came back better and stronger, “we’ll never die, we’ll never die” Expect big movement this summer all involving De Gea, he can go if he wants and be a leaver, or he can be the keeper of Manchester United, he’ll be known as David De Stayer!

Enjoy that? Give it a share!

Ted Hennessey has been a Manchester United fan for has long has he can remember, he loves United because of how they won the treble and how they have the best fan-base in the world, his favourite player ever is Paul Scholes.

One reply on “David de Stayer?”

Oh dear, David De Gea looks like being United’s ‘Player of the Season’ for the second year in a row. This is all rather unsettling. Even at the height of their United careers, Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar only occasionally received ‘man of the match’ awards and were certainly never in contention for ‘Player of the Season’. David De Gea will win this season’s top player award in a landslide.

Of course, this is testament to what a fine keeper De Gea is, but it is also an indictment of the performance levels of others. Injuries notwithstanding, there has been a clear lack of consistency in the quality of output by the outfield players.150 million quid spent on new blood and a ‘who’s who’ of strikers in Falcao, Rooney, Di Maria and van Persie, yet the keeper is the star. Ideally the keeper should be the most unnoticed player in the team, a mere spectator, only occasionally called into action. The serious and decisive stuff should be happening at the other end of the pitch.

I hope that De Gea stays at United but if he does, it will be of real concern if he makes it a hat-trick of awards next season.
