Fickle Football David De GeaAfter just two games (one being the rather pointless Community Shield) Man Utd’s £16m goalkeeper David De Gea was already being labelled a disaster (or as it’s known in Manchester, Massimo Taibi). He’s 20, hasn’t earned a cap for Spain yet and had played just one league game, so this seemed a little harsh. On the blue side of Manchester however, £38m Argentine forward Sergio Aguero was already being touted as player of the season after coming off the bench to score 2 goals against shell-shocked newcomers Swansea. In Man Utd’s next game against an attacking Tottenham side, De Gea kept a clean sheet and made some good saves. City were away to Bolton, beating them 3-2, although Aguero missed a few easy chances and was subbed. It’s only fair for new players, especially from a different league, to be given a few months to settle in. What next, managers getting sacked after only a few games? Oh..
