Put your money on dean Henderson leaving this January. Not on a loan either.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2022 18:40:06
How much money and will you cover any losses if Henderson ends up staying?

13 Jan 2022 19:49:12
I can't see a permanent deal in this window. Maybe a loan to a non-rival at best.

14 Jan 2022 07:52:32
Dean Henderson should be number 1. This transition should have occurred 12 months ago.

If Dean moves on it further portrays the calamity actor that is MU from both a footballing and commercial proposition.

Things need to keep moving. The train should continue to clock up kilometres.

14 Jan 2022 08:46:33
DDG has been our best player by a country mile this season. Don’t get the Henderson love in. He did ceded soft goals and hardly inspires confidence. He can kick better and that’s about it.

14 Jan 2022 09:52:41
Eric you are correct, DDG has had a decent season - no doubt. But can you say that for the last few?

DDG is on a monster contract and the reality is the peak of his powers is likely behind him.

There is a young homegrown player with bags of potential knocking at the door - DH is not going to be DDG’s underling for much longer.

The commerciality of DDG’s deal at MU can no longer be justified when there is an alternative solution emerging.

Do not hold onto legacy employees at the expense of closing the path on the future route.

The churn is imminent at some point and the club must always evolve. It should always be about the club.

14 Jan 2022 11:18:35
DDG contract expires 2023. If he co tinges with his form, I'd imagine the club will want to extend his contract. If they do, I hope they offer him reduced terms as this has been his best season since he signed tha that new contract.

14 Jan 2022 12:03:40
MH that in itself is the problem, a potential contract at reduced terms for one good season out of a handful.

MU must be more cut throat, move players on at the right time - like Chelsea for example. This has been the undoing of MU for years.

The club must be more agile and constantly adapting whilst looking to the future.

The ability to revert appropriately as opposed to react instinctively is what has brought a great sporting institution into mediocrity over the past decade - yes decade….

14 Jan 2022 12:25:55
To be honest I feel that the club should sell DDG this summer with a year left on his deal. Recoup some money and reinvest.

We would need to buy a new keeper to fight it out with Henderson for the No.1 spot.

DDG has been in good form this season, bit has been poor for 3 years prior.

While his shot stopping has been good this season has his communication, organisation, contesting aerial duels, coming off his line or distribution improved to anything above average? No.

Time to move on, especially if we want to move to a more modern style where the keeper plays out from the back or acts as a sweeper.

14 Jan 2022 13:36:51
Shappy you are on narcotics if you think MU are seeking ‘a move to keepers playing from the back and/ or sweeping’.

MU are a million miles off this - there is no identity, there hasn’t been one for years.

Since 2013 the team has just been crying out to get back to basics. Don’t worry about sweeper keepers, clear lines and organise players to do their jobs - none of this fancy footwork.

MU for years now require investment in characters, grinders and grafters. Stop procuring Pogba’s, Sancho’s and AWB etc. Invest in culture - invest the basics.

14 Jan 2022 16:27:41
MAZE, since you've been away it appears you've forgotten how to read. I said:

"Time to move on, especially IF we want to move to a more modern style where the keeper plays out from the back or acts as a sweeper. "

IF, as in implying that there is no certainty that the club actually wants to do that.

14 Jan 2022 16:39:55
Henderson isn't even the best English keeper around at the moment so he certainly shouldn't be no1 over DDG.

14 Jan 2022 18:25:22
Henderson had a brief spell under Ole and just like VdB, Martial, Bailley et al didn't stand out at all when given his chance. He was in by default due to DDG's very dodgy form at the time.

But now Dave the Save is back, he is light years ahead of anything I saw from Henderson. He may be much younger and the better long-term option, and deserve to be starting somewhere, but the club needs whatever world-class players in form it can find atm and DDG is one of those.

It's a case of reluctantly letting him go and getting a few more years out of the Save for me. Who knows who else will be around by then to succeed him. Maybe Henderson himself.

14 Jan 2022 22:18:38
Henderson looks wobbly to me, I’d be very nervous having him as No1.

14 Jan 2022 22:47:16
Reminds me of when we brought in Ben Foster. Good - just not good enough.

15 Jan 2022 00:00:51
There's an argument to make that United's problems start with having a goalkeeper who does not act as an auxiliary sweeper. He may be a great shot stopper but his reluctance to come off his line makes the pressing game harder to effect and puts more pressure on the defenders in front of him. The closest Villa came to scoring on Monday was when de Gea backpedaled after Lindelof made a weakish pass back. Moist modern goalkeepers would have been further advanced and far more decisive. The ball would have been cleared. De Gea is flat-footed in this respect, rather like Rashford was at the other end when he failed to make any move to pounce up the rebound.

15 Jan 2022 16:18:23
Henderson isn’t as good as DeGea now and never will be, he is a decent gk but is way off being one of the top keepers. He is a good back up but he won’t be happy with that and so he needs to move on.

15 Jan 2022 21:39:59
Heaton is better than henderson.

End of debate let him leave keepers are easy to replace

Like above he is dodgy.

15 Jan 2022 23:52:24
Bolger, what are you on about Keepers being easy to replace. I can only assume you are too young to remember taking nearly a decade to replace Schmeichel.

Van Der Gouw, Barthez, Ricardo, Bosnich, Howard, Carroll, Foster.

All tried before VDS came in.

While Henderson may or may not be the answer let's not pretend that keepers are easy to replace.

16 Jan 2022 00:20:03
Henderson might be knocking on the door but De Gea isn’t opening it, I’m not even sure Henderson is at the right house.

16 Jan 2022 16:18:05
Think you'll find van der gouw was never touted as a replacement for schmeichel, he was an understudy.

17 Jan 2022 08:22:02
no shappy i remember, i even remember that Massimo Taibi

we tried to get vds years before but failed.

keepers are not that hard to replace anymore, there are plenty of keepers out there, young keepers aswell that are better than henderson,

Unai Simón
Justin Bijlow
Illan Meslierhe
Florian Müller

even nick pope is better than hendseron i could go on shappy

henderson is so overated, if he was really that good do you think he wouldn't have taken the spot already romero was better and he deserved to be number 1, de gea other than this season has been poor for 3 years.

england have a poor pickford and he still couldn't get infront of him.

henderson is overated end of discussion. let him leave it won't be hard to replace him.

17 Jan 2022 10:20:14
Bolger, I think Henderson will suprise a few when he leaves. Spurs are interested as a replacement for Lloris, while Chelsea have had an interest in the past, not sure if they would still be. I'd expect it would depend on them finding a buyer for Kepa.
