Who is David De Gea? An Atletico Madrid fan tells all.

Over the past few months, United have been heavily linked with Atletico Madrid keeper, David De Gea. Those rumours were proved correct when, last month, Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that we’re interested in signing the Spanish stopper.

Not much is known of De Gea, so we got in contact with Julio Megía – an Atleti fan who runs the Forza Atleti blog. Julio speaks very highly of his club’s keeper, and you can read what he had to say below.

United sign Phil Jones

Manchester United today announced the signing of Phil Jones from Blackburn. The 20-year-old defender-cum-defensive midfielder has signed a 5 year deal with the reds, but his fee remains undisclosed. 

A (loosely translated) statement on the Chinese version of the club’s official site read:


“Manchester United is pleased to announce an agreement with Blackburn for Phil Jones, who has signed a five-year contract,

“The player – who today passed a medical in Manchester –  has agreed personal terms with the club.”

Jones, who impressed vs United this season, has only been playing first team football for Rovers for a couple of seasons and much like Chris Smalling, has progressed at an impressive rate.

With Wes Brown and John O’Shea expected to leave the club in the coming weeks, Jones could find himself seeing much more first-team action than he initially anticipated.

Welcome to Manchester, Phil!

A natter with the enemy: Barca vs UNITED

Ahead of the Champions League final this coming Saturday, Spencer from totalBarca very generously took time out to answer some of our questions. From improving Barcelona, to rejecting Anderson. Here’s what he had to say: Read the rest of this entry

Daft City fan changes his name..

City fans – entertainment 24/7, all year round. We’ve had the Champions League tattoo, the Kaka tattoo, the Rooney shirt and now, this..

De Gea set to join United.

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that United have agreed a deal to sign 20-year-old Spanish ‘keeper, David de Gea. Ever since Edwin van der Sar confirmed his retirement earlier this season, United scouts have been searching the planet in hope of finding a suitable replacement.

It took us 6 years to find a replacement for Peter Schmeichel after he left United in 1999, and that’s something Fergie doesn’t want to go through again. We have been linked with several keepers in recent times, from the youth of De Gea, to the experience of Buffon, and Fergie has decided that de Gea is his man.

“We’ve been working on it for quite a while. We identified him quite a while back as one we should go for.

“He’s a young goalkeeper, very quick, good composure, presence and an outstanding replacement for van der Sar.

“We were looking for the same type of qualities as Edwin, because the one great quality Edwin always had was his composure and organisational ability.

“With David De Gea, he is very similar that way.”

The deal is expected to be officially announced in the coming days.

United vs Chelsea: 5 quick reactions.

1) How did Chicharito not get a hattrick today? He got in great positions time and time again, and you’d have bet your house on him scoring more often than not. What a signing he’s been though, £6m and to get 2o goals in his first season so far is outstanding. The last player to do that for us was Ruud van Nistelrooy. Not bad for an unknown nobody from Mexican obscurity. Read the rest of this entry
