Big ups to Bromantic for doing this and to Rory (Sweet Science) and Sam (nolefansam) from the Busby Babe for answering. Here we go. Sam's answers are in italics. Check out the answers given by Bromantic to The Busby Babe as well.
Rory: Hell no. All this talk of de Gea out in the papers is disgusting. Do these people actually not watch games? At what point has Fergie even inclined to not back him?
His shot stopping is world class. His distribution is great. I can't remember him letting us down in the big games. And he is only a baby, which means he is only gunna get better. He is top five keeper in the world material.
Sam: Simply put, no. The injuries to Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, and Vidic all seem to be behind the squad so there are 5 quality center halves to choose from and flexibility at right back with Jones, Smalling, and the imprssive Rafael out there. I think there will be a noticeable tightening up at the back in the second half of the campaign, as evidenced by the consecutive clean sheets in the league during the festive period.
