Targeting De Gea?

Targeting De Gea?

Okay, there have been a couple of errors, but there`s no call for the opposition to think they can capitalize!

With Tottenham Hotspur arriving at Old Trafford this evening, one of their players - Benoit Assou-Ekotto - has opened his mouth to warn us that the London club are set to target our young Spanish keeper, with Assou-Ekotto, remarking,

"We will try to take advantage of these problems he`s had. When you come to England you have to learn quickly how we play here."

"It is never easy for the first six months."


Cheeky git!!

Anyone else feel a man-of-the-match display coming on from the youngster?

Assuming Bale can actually do anything. He's been non-existant everytime his played United, even when his been on form. I reckon he'll struggle against Smalling or Fabio and they will dominate him in the same way Rafael dominated him last season. De Gea will be fine I reckon and I can see Tottenham wasting possession by 'targeting' De Gea.

Not really much targeting went on - in fact De Gea had a good game overall - just one cross he hesitated on - all others he dealt with fine

The number of Tottenham attacks wasted by the Spuds acting like spuds and thinking they were going to score. Cheers for giving back on numerous occassions Van Der Vaart ;) De Gea was solid par the one cross which Bale beat him to but once again it's just a learning experience for him and he done really well.

There's every reason why the opposition will feel they can capitalise, a young keeper playing in a high pressure environment having made a couple of errors already. If I was the opposition manager it would be a case of instructing my players to shoot on sight. The lad did well last night with the little he had to deal with, no doubt the clean sheet will have done wonders for his confidence but dont kid yourselves the spotlight will very much be on him until at least ten to fifteen games into the season and if he continues to make silly errors like he did against Dzeko and Long the opposition will feel they can capitalise.

De Gea has already come on in leap and bounds - his game on Monday showed a lot more confidence, with confidence comes the ability to give 110% to every game - hes a great keeper, and will be one of the best EPL had ever seen...
