Agreed about the British media bias. Hart has been really poor this season compared to his usual standards, yet the media always make an excuse for him.
In reality neither keeper is world class. Hart is Champion's league quality when at the top of his game and De Gea is just a decent Prem keeper with a fair bit of potential.
If De Gea was bought for £5 million or so then people would probably be less harsh. A big price tag brings high expectations, therefore a lot of people would have been underwhelmed by De Gea once he moved to England. Not saying that's a good way to think, but it's natural human psychology. Staying on that subject, is De Gea really good or is he a victim of pre-selection? By that I mean is he only expected to be so good by many because many top keepers have vouched for him?
To sum it up: United fans on here are deluded while British tabloids are full of shit. Double shock!
