    I think his game has changed because of Bruno. He's keeping it simple, keeping the ball moving quickly. He's not trying to do too much. Previously, he was taking too many touches, trying to do everything himself.

    Making me eat my words, and I am delighted to do so. He's keeping things simple, and he's been fabulous since he's come back. Long may it continue.
  • dirkey replied to the thread What's happened to De Gea?.
    Whatever else about him, calling him mentally weak is very wrong in my opinion. Came here as a youngster, fragile, made a number of mistakes, was torn apart by the press and us fans... Weathered that, and for a time was probably the best keeper...
  • I was talking about the "We shouldn't be getting carried away" part.
  • I'm not even remotely worried. He's just taking his time to find his feet after a long layoff, along with a bad injury. He'll be fine.
  • :D :D :D :D :D :D Well played.
  • Wow. Yeah. You could say that. Course, you could point out ... De Gea made the better saves ... when the game was already dead and buried. Their keeper didn't have saves to make because our lads were putting the ball away. Don't forget, we hit...
  • Despite the fact that we've proven all season long that we can compete with the big boys ... and these are the exact games and teams we've struggled with? So, we shouldn't be excited that the new signing in Bruno looks like being the key to being...
  • Well done. Great performance, reasons for loads of optimism .. immediately come in with a prediction of negativity. You must be great fun. I read a book to my daughter called Mr. Miserable. This is like something he'd say.
  • Oh ffs. You mean, resting players and comfortably seeing out a win. Honest to God.
  • I definitely had an occasion where I said enough was enough. Might also have been the Burnley game. I'll have a look tomorrow when On laptop.
  • Fair enough. You know what, I shouldn't have named names. Douche move on my part. Apologies. Sure yesterday I was in a martial thread saying he wasn't good /consistent enough to be our number 9
  • From a quick search .. you've called him out of his depth a few times, that he has to go now etc. As I said above to the other poster, apologies if you feel singled out. I just went and looked at the posts immediately following the Spurs game...
  • You can continue to think I'm out of order all you like mate. And maybe you feel unfairly singled out, I just went back and looked at the first few comments immediately after the Spurs game, and they were negative. Yours was one. My issue is ...
  • Hmm. You told him to calm his knickers off .. and he's the rude non banter like an adult type? Not sure mate.
