More Pressure on De Gea

More Pressure on De Gea

Something interesting happened yesterday!

Jack Butland, the promising teenage Birmingham City keeper, penned a four-year deal with Stoke City.

Earlier this week, Butland had refused to talk to Chelsea about a transfer seemingly because he couldn`t see himself getting regular football, at Stamford Bridge, with Petr Cech between the posts.

Rather strange then that he`s chosen to go to Stoke City where the excellent Asmir Begovic currently occupies the keepers slot.

Now, after signing, Butland was allowed to remain at St Andrews for the remainder of the season which can only go to add more fuel to the fire to suggest that Asmir Begvic could very well be leaving the Britannia Stadium this summer and bound for guess where!

That certainly has fuelled rumours of Begovic leaving but you've got to bear in mind Butland is only 19 and is far from ready for top flight football. Even if there was an inkling of truth that Butland spells the end for Begovic it's still highly unlikely that he's destined for our club. Can't see us going after anyone until De Gea leaves, which I still think will happen when Madrid and Barca come calling.

Getting a bit sick of this press driven attempt to destabilise de Gea at every opportunity. It's vicious and uncalled for even when not to blame he is blamed. Joe Hart never got this level of victimisation it ridiculous. In fact I've don't recall any keeper having to put up with it. All dues to de Gea though he has not risen to the crap flung at him.
