    Great read ! Surprising to hear SAF wanted GKs to be good on the ball.

    Great interview, it just shows that we used to sign players that wanted to play for United and we need to get back to it.

    De Gea was great with balls at his feet too, I don't know what has happened to him.

    I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Anders while he played in Norway, but I know what people say about him and this interview confirms a down to earth and honest man.
    Great read like these articles usually are:)

    Coaching most likely, under Van Gaal his distribution was excellent.

    Even under Jose he used to hit Fellainis' and Lukakus' head most of the time, but as the time went on his distribution was less and less accurate.

    Look at the shape of the team when a ball is passed back to the keeper. There's no plan of getting it safely back into play. Under Mourinho it was just hoof it to Lukaku and sometimes out to the flanks. Usually the 2nd ball was lost and therfor the possession. Feels like he lacks both in confidence and practise but I think he could comfortably ping it out to wingers if they would go wide and be open.

    "Breaking the save down it wasn’t as good as it looked. David gambled on that corner and won. If he had lost, the media and fans would have been ready to lynch him. Instead he became a sensation after that moment."

    What? That was a perfect freekick by Mata. No one in their right mind would have given DDG hell for not saving that.

    Refreshingly honest.

    De Gea chose the corner that wasn't his (usually a keeper has one corner and the wall covers the other) and saved the free kick that Mata sent there. What Lindegaard says is that if Mata was to shoot into the keeper's corner, De Gea would've been caught out of position. And keepers are usually to blame when the ball goes into "their" corner (especially considering the general opinion of De Gea at the time).

    You get the impression that Schmikes is a bit of a dick.

    Lindegaard makes it sound like de Gea was able to nail down the #1 position because he got injured ffs.

    I agree with he part that the club needs to call the shots, not the manager. SAF like managers are a thing of the past

    This is factually what happened. De Gea would have taken over eventually, but a lot later than he actually did. Lindegaard was posting some solid showings in goal, whereas De Gea struggled greatly initially.

    De Gea was temporarily taken out of the firing line by Ferguson but he was always going to overtake the #1 spot. That comment from Lindegaard made it sound like the #1 spot was his to lose - which was obviously not the case. He was just keeping it warm for de Gea.

    Fantastic read.

    Ole will definitely definitely need time and backing. United management (and more importantly its fans) will have to be patient. Lower expectations for at least 2 more seasons, to allow the team to be stronger after. It's going to be a very tough job, and honestly reading the kind of garbage people post on social media after every missed pass or defensive mistake, I don't know if we're giving the Manager the kind of room he needs.

    Aye.

    Good interview overall. I disliked Moyes as much as the next United fan but it's good of Lindegaard to accept everyone at United in 2013 should take some blame for how it turned out. Moyes's brand of change might have been terrible but that didn't mean change was needed after Fergie.

    Here is something funny:

    20-year-old Donnarumma has played more professional games than 35-year-old Lindegaard.

    Good interview and honest. If he's out for 6 months after tripping over a training mannequin, no wonder we can't keep anyone else fit.

    Yep, and not the first time ex players have given a similar impression.

    Yeah, I thought about adding something about it being a trend that either he himself or others imply that he isn't the nicest.

    Didn't get that impression at all. He understood his role perfectly — an inferior player competing with a better one; but that "race" ended even earlier than it could've because of his injury.

    Plus I would have thought that correctly gambling (i.e. anticipating) where someone is going to put a shot is part of being a goalkeeper anyway. Is doing that not still good goalkeeping?

    Probably because Schmeichel said when we signed Lindegaard that he wasnt good enough for United.
