De Gea: It’s Special To Have Fans’ Support

David de Gea was voted player of the month for February with 45% of the vote on United’s official site.

After receiving a lot of stick from the press and some United fans, de Gea has done brilliantly well after losing his first team place to Anders Lindegaard, who then picked up an injury. He made incredible saves in February, most notably against Chelsea and Norwich, and is chuffed that the fans have recognised his contribution.

“It’s great news and it’s special to know it’s our own fans who have voted,” he told the official site. “It shows there’s a nice understanding and feeling between me and them. It’s proof that I’m doing something right and it’s fantastic that the fans have recognised this.”

    The wonders of Photoshop. I once did an RVP on a female body builders body in a Bikini for Cedars but he said it put him off. :D

    When AVB got the job I remember a few commentaters saying he might be good but was too young for the job. Maybe his inability to keep individuals in check is because of his youth/inexperience. Players who crossed Fergie were out like a bullet out of a gun before they caused problems – morrison being a case in point

    Costas. Thanks for the lineup mate. Guess SAF wasn’t bluffing when he said that Valencia was not fit for this match.

  13. Mikekelly12 says:

    New confirmed line up thread folks.

  14. Costas says:


    You’re welcome. No, unfortunately he wasn’t bluffing this time. Young will have plenty of backtracking to do here as well.

    Could it be that with Lindegarrd out injured, the pressure of not having someone breathing down his neck for the number 1 spot has helped him?
