    David: Well, can City stop United, as well, you know? We play at home with the fans, a special game of course. We arrive with confidence, we're really strong, and we want to win.

    Legend. That reply to Henry struck me, as I was thinking day by day can we stop City. What a pro, top lad.

    The way Henry kept saying that he wanted to play against him!!

    I think that's what separates the best.. He respects DDG at being very good and just wants to prove to himself that he can score against him..

    When DDG says that bit that he was sure he would get to the ball during that stop.. Henry just looks shocked.. I feel he has become a united fan these days..

    Yeah he's always really positive about us. Think he respects us as we were always their closest rival.

    He's come across as a closet fan at times, yeah.

    Henry was one of the best footballers I've ever watched, he's also a very good pundit too. Just seems like a top bloke

    Interesting that he says that he doesn't shout at defenders during a match because he wants the team to stay positive. I thought it was just his personality but he says he does it indoors.

    Love Henry. He's so much better than any other pundit on TV.

    De Gea, himself, just seems like such a top human being.

    That reply is why we can't lose this guy. He's a winner, he has that winning mentality.

    Henry is one of the very few rival players that I actually loved him, not just enjoyed his football. He was always a class guy and still.

    Liked De Gea response to the question of our ability to stop City, exactly the mentality we need in our team.

    I mean there wasn’t much to that interview really. ‘What were you thinking here’ ‘I have to save it’. Rinse and repeat.

    Hope Dave transfers that winning mentality to his teammates as that's the mindset we need going into that game

    Time to rip it lingard-lukaku-martial!

    And a massive closet United fan :drool:.

    Great interview by Dave, he's English is brilliant now too. It really strikes you how good he is when one of the greatest strikers of recent times is completely baffled at how he made those selected saves.

    Henry is a closet Man United supporter. If only he played with us during his career..

    He's a great pundit. Seems to get along well with Ibrahimovic and Pogba.

    Thierry loves interviewing our players. Pogba last year. Zlatan, Lukaku and now De Gea this year.

    A bit cringeworthy. Thought he was going to suck DDG's cock at some point.

    This really isn't it though.

    It's not a great interview by any means.

    Still wouldnt shock me as much as some of the answers seemed to shock Henry.

    Henry: "Did you think you'd save that"?
    DDG: Yes.
    Henry: OMFG, speechless.

    De Gea seemed quite Scholes-like in that interview, seemed almost uncomfortable with the barrage of praise. I liked De Gea explaining some of those saves and what the thought and what he saw. Henry was just jizzing over him for 10 minutes solid though. It was a bit weird.

    Really? That's pretty much how Henry has done all the inteviews with top players I've seen. Always picks out standout stuff and comment on it being amazing.

    I hope De Gea stays with us, we would probably be sitting mid table if not for his heroics so far this season and I do not see an immediate replacement for him.

    Well that's just blatantly false. He's barely had anything to do in most of our games

    De Gea’s English is incredible considering he probably barely knew a word just 6/7 years ago.

    Me too. That kind of self-belief is amazing. I guess that's why so many of SAF's signings were so successful. It must have been the first criteria he looks for in players when he wants to sign them and not any technical abilities. Another one is Smalling who gave it back to Southgate after being openly questioned about his abilities.

    It's almost as if you disappeared from the face of earth for a couple of years and came back just to make this post.

    It's still nuts how little respect keepers and to an extent defenders get. When a striker scores a hattrick no one ever says "oh you only won because of your striker scoring 3 goals" but if after De Gea's performance at Arsenal all I heard was "De Gea won you the game"/"You only won cause De Gea made 14 saves" as if it's a criticism that our best player wins us games.

    That is the spirit, his reply shows confidence and that is exactly what we should have in our team ALWAYS. Hope we keep the guy for many years and Madrid just go and sign a GK and piss off. Future captain between him and Pogba for me.
