Watching the friendly with Villa: Happy to report for the first 20 minutes of this game Henderson has been passing to his defenders and not kicking aimlessly up the field.

Can't understand the notion that Henderson couldn't make passes to his defenders.

Going to be interesting season in this position. I do agree with Neville I cant recall any club being successful chopping and changing two keepers to give them both game time. Top clubs usually have a no 1 and then stick with him and back him which helps with continuity.

De Gea will be moved on at the end of the season because I see no other reason to bring back Henderson if that isn't the case. The problem will obviously be offloading De Gea due to his wages. I also can't see any team with a forward thinking progressive coach wanting De Gea.

It's the hope that kills you. DDG was a fine goalkeeper, and for two seasons we've been hoping to get that back. I think the chopping and changing is in the hope that might happen.

At some point we have to say "This is not working" and bench the number 1. Personally I think this is long overdue. His situation is very reminiscent of Rooney and Sanchez.

Maybe Henderson is up for it, maybe we'll need a new keeper, but what DDG has been serving is not acceptable.

I think De Gea will get back starting spot at some point of upcoming season.
The whole world will blame Hendo when his mistakes cost us points and he wont survive it.
The pressure surraunding this club is totally different from Sheffield United.

It certainly is, but that doesn't mean that Henderson can't deal with it. We'll see how it plays out, but I think this guy is the real deal - in terms of mentality.

I saw that Ole praised Henderson's performance.. anything of particular note that he did? In the game highlights I couldn't figure out a thing he did at all.

Probably not related to the actual performance, but more as a bit of encouragement for Henderson, and lighting a fire under DDG.
