Best result all round. We tie down a promising keeper and he gets a year in the top flight. Wonderful.
They still have Tottenham, Wolves, Leicester, Chelsea and Everton. Let him go back there and help take points off of them.
Plus they’ve got Arsenal in the cup. Help knock them out and he can’t play against us.
I'd agree with most of that except I'd say United should bring him back after next season to be the #1 if he has another good year.I think the plan would be get Henderson out on loan next season, hopefully Sheffield Utd will make the Europa so he can get some exposure there. Also no doubt he’ll play for England at some point soon. Then he comes back and competes with De Gea for a season then the season after he gets the number 1 spot. Could be the trajectory we are looking for.
I think De Gea has had his chances, in fact far too many. He's been poor for 2 seasons at least and makes as many mistakes as he makes worldies saves these days which isn't good enough. Meanwhile we have a keeper on loan making a great name for himself.
But, yet again, we've got a player on a HUGE contract that no one else would consider due to wages so we are stuck with him so I'd fully expect Utd to give Dave another season. Maybe that will be the extra season that will bring Hendo right on to be a top, top level keeper.
I have a bit of an issue. Dean has similar qualities to the ddg of a few years ago, he also has similar flaws. Good shot stopper. Dont particularly think he commands his box. No particularly good with his feet. Braver than ddg and younger.Henderson had no PL experience at the start of this season sending him to Sheff Utd to me made a lot of sense even with the benefit of hindsight for me it was the right move.
Anyone watched a lot of Sheff Utd? How good is Henderson at controlling his box and what is he like with his feet?
Then he deserves the chance to be United's #1? Give him that chance whilst they are in this rebuild period? If he's not good enough they'll know in a year or two.I have a bit of an issue. Dean has similar qualities to the ddg of a few years ago, he also has similar flaws. Good shot stopper. Dont particularly think he commands his box. No particularly good with his feet. Braver than ddg and younger.
Why? United aren't competing next year, the year after perhaps. De Gea is making costly mistakes so why not?I don't think we have got time to see if he will be good enough, Ole doesn't have that luxury of trying to bed in a keeper who may or may not be good enough. Tough call for Ole on this one as there probably isn't loads in the kitty, I'm sure the RF is earmarked, if it was me I'd be looking for a CB to partner Maguire and CDM. The keeper is just another headache.
