And I’m sure Ole can see it as well. I honestly do not know why Dean isn’t playing by now. Loyalty? No, because De Gea has been the individual player most likely to cost Ole his job for two years, starting from his implosion which single-handedly cost us a CL place in 2019. His wage? Maybe, because Dean has been a sight better since last season began. DDG’s apologists will say that Dean has been ‘shaky’, but that too is totally wrong as he has been as good as can be aside from one mistake against Sheff U. Remember, he made a flying save at the end of the game to save us the 3 points as well.Or at least punches it out 25 yards rather than let Maguire put his head on it in the first place (which we've seen him do multiple times), spreading out the field and giving the midfield a chance at getting the ball back.
Watching the replay on it, DDG should have stopped that shot.
For what Ole wants to do from the back, he needs Henderson out there. Dean has all the qualities that we know David lacks - command of the box, good distribution, and no fear of coming off the line.
