Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - GAME OVER YEEEAAAHHH!!!!!!!
That is a fucking good save, I must have missed that one.
To be fair to the MOTD commentator he did give De Gea loads of praise for a routine long distance save that was heading towards the middle of his goal just above head height.
I also noticed that he got away with parrying out another shot into a dangerous area but got lucky with the scuffed rebound. There's no doubt that his reflexes are the best in the league, but his handling needs to improve. I guess that will come with time. One thing that he might struggle to develop is his command of the eighteen yard area. He's not massively tall for a keeper so he can't really get away with having such a wirey frame.
Good points: Reflexes, distribution, agility.
Bad points: Handling, command of area.
Average points: Positioning, judgement/reading of the game.
I think that he can become great in most of these categories but I'm not so sure about the command of his area one. Obviously personal confidence will play a part.
