Well Reading are the new "Comeback Kings" so no doubt Chelsea will go 3-0 up only to come out for they 2'nd half and completely implode and Reading go on to win 4-3 with a hat-trick from the new "Super Sub" Adam Le Fondre

I'm glad that people are starting to pick up on/acknowledge this, I got laughed at by United 07 for saying that De Gea does this a lot, but it's an undeniable weakness of his. I'm struggling to think of a game where he hasn't done this for the past two months. Sometimes he gets away with it, but more often than not he doesn't. He's a keeper that can't cope with crosses and consistently fails to deal with shots correctly, yet apparently he's international/Champion's league class! I wouldn't be so bothered about it but all of the hype for De Gea makes it difficult for me to not point out his obvious flaws.

The argument that United fans always make for De Gea is that he's a great shot "stopper", which is true, but most keepers at premier league level are. However, it's one thing to stop a shot, but where the ball ends up is another matter altogether. Another argument that is given to justify the shot topping quality being a genuine selling point is that De Gea has one of the highest (if not the highest) shots to saves percentages in the league, but until I can see a complete break down of what types of shots he has had to deal with then it's a useless stat.

To add some balance I will say that De Gea would be an outstanding five-a-side keeper, he would look genuinely world class in a match situation where his distribution would be far more of an asset and his parrying of shots wouldn't be an issue. If opposition players weren't allowed into the eighteen yard area in eleven-a-side matches then he would definitely be as good as some United fans claim, but unfortunately for them the opposition players (to United) are allowed to enter the area for rebounds as well as crosses. If De Gea was unchallenged in these situations then he would be a top, top keeper

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (feat. Joel - THE RIGHT ONE)

The one he parried to Defoe today wasn't his fault. That was going clear of the danger area if Defoe wasn't already so close to De Gea and even then he had to stretch to get anything on it. He's got some way to come still but the potential is definitely there and even now he does a damn good job for us. Doubt too many keepers would have kept a clean sheet today for 90 minutes of that match. He's cost us goals but he's saved us plenty that many other goalkeepers wouldn't have. He'll still improve no doubt. Can't sign every player at his age and be faultless to begin with.

I want a keeper that I can be completely confident in, since Schmeichel there's only been one other. De Gea will keep on improving, hopefully it's quickly though as I hate how uncertain of him I am - annoys me as I think he's really talented. Don't rate Lindegaard as anything more than a reserve, he's the Raymond van der Gouw. I honestly can't think of too many keepers that are available for us that'd be our great/world class option.

but if it was hart this board would've been up in arms for how he didn't catch the ball or punch it further.

I'm not saying that De Gea won't be a good long term prospect, although there are certain things that will hinder him. My only issue is when some United fans can't see that he has flaws (ForeShadowed, United 07, etc). If all of the United fans on here can acknowledge De Gea's shortcomings then I will drop the act.
