Bad Luck for De Gea

Despite, recently, having been named in the provisional squad for Euro 2012, our keeper didn`t survive the cut.

The Spanish coach, Vicente Del Bosque, has decided that De Gea`s time will have to wait with Iker Casillas (Real Madrid), Pepe Reina, (Liverpool), Victor Valdes (Barcelona) being the three nominated keepers.

Time to put your feet up David and enjoy the summer break!

Even if he did go he wouldn't of played as it's very rare that the back-up keepers even get a game over the no 1. To be honest though whilst De Gea has ahd a shakey start he has been solid since and has had a better campaign than both Reina and Valdes who have been shocking and struggled to keep any shot at them out of the back of their net. Valdes is ***** all together and De Gea, even at a young age and still developing, is a better keeper than he is.

He probably wasnt chosen because he is crap.

De Gea may have started badly but he's become a really sharp shot-stopper towards the end of the season. All academic of course considering how likely 2nd/3rd keepers are to play but still...Reina has been fairly poor most of this season and my word, Valdes?! The guy is completely rubbish. Loved hearing the commentators go, during our game against Barca "Such is Barca's dominance that Valdes has only been called into action a couple of times.", yeah, and he f'cked it up everytime. What a spectator, just relies on the rest of his team doing the job and heaven forbid an opposing player somehow finds his way into his half of the pitch he's found out to be worse than Alumnia. Sorry, I just hate that guy. Expect De Gea's time will come at the next tournament.

When he has played at the top level for a number of years he may get a look in. Cadillas and Reina are two top class experienced keepers and Valdes has proved over the years that he is a good keeper, perhaps not at the same level as the other two. De Gea, despite having a decent second half of the season, still has a question mark hanging over him that he can do it consistently.
Bluedub
Wose anus are we meant to be ignoring Famous? ;) De Gea has definitely surprised a few people after his shaky start, but as Bluedub pointed out, he's behind two very good, very experienced keepers. If he carries on developing he'll get his chance in the future, so nobody at united should consider it a "Snub".
