I don't expect him to make zero mistakes but we do need him to finish the season with much fewer damaging mistakes than he managed in the last two seasons.The only way people will accept he isn’t if he makes zero mistakes and as soon as anything remotely mistake like appears they’ll come for him again.
Or even punch the thingIt's frustrating because it's not as if he has to catch a Beckham-style cross out of mid air. That ball was just bouncing about the penalty area with the speed of a snail. All he has to do is jump for it and if anyone so much as even nudges him, it's a foul and a free kick to us.
This is one of the few ocsssions where I don’t think he’s been heavily criticised by people.Yes, but at the same time, is it actually a good thing that we heavily criticize the goalkeeper after a victory and a clean sheet?
It's still a fundamental issue and will continue to surface as history has shown. Some posters are right in that maybe we should just 'accept' De Gea is never going to improve in that aspect for the sake of our mental healthYes, but at the same time, is it actually a good thing that we heavily criticize the goalkeeper after a victory and a clean sheet?
