I'm not sure how you bring him in for the last 2 league games without making it obvious to the world that De Gea's days are numbered but he (Romero) damn well better keep his place in the remaining EL games

Hes unlucky to have not played. Really think we should have kept the cup keeper for the cup game. He deserved that imo.

I’m pretty convinced De Gea would have kept a clean sheet tonight. The strike was sweet, curled the right way, but not very fast. If you noticed the footwork in the two seconds before the shot, De Gea would have made it look like a not so special save by being there already.

De Gea would’ve probably punched it into his own net.
I’d wait to hope DDG gets back into any kind of form before claiming he’d ever keep a clean sheet.

Now you’re just rambling for the sake of it. De Gea has made a lot of clean sheets this year alone, and his footwork for 99 % of shots has been impeccable. I’m not arguing he has been at his beat or that he hasn’t made errors, but this game was a typical zero against for him still.

Had a good game, liked how quickly he released the ball.
How people can say DDG would save that I have no idea, especially after the Mason Mount goal

It's a good shot, by all means, but Romero just falls over without ever getting close to it.

Because those kind of saves have been a regular occurrence, even through the bad form.

Tonight showed exactly what Romero is. A solid keeper, who won’t gain you any points with spectacular saves, but is generally pretty reliable.

He gained us a EL trophy once....He does make spectacular saves. Only doesnt happen that much because he doesn't play at all.

Made some good stops, but looked unconvincing for the goal. Maybe he knew he wasn't going to get near it anyway, but he didn't even try. His feet don't even leave the ground when he dives.

Not sure who I'd prefer to take on the rest of the EL stages between him and De Gea.

Nice article on United's website. Interesting read, not only about Romero, but Richard Hartis' general comments on aspects of the game.

https://www.manutd.com/en/news/detail/ever-ready-rock-steady-sergio-romero-feature

Sounds like there is a lot of thinking and understanding of the game that is required for footballers at this level. Which is why probably players who rely on skills alone without "studying the game" don't make it very far.

Hartis sounds like a very insightful coach.
