It Seems with the general media clamour to blame United’s young goalkeeper David De Gea for the draw against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, some of them are getting a tad carried away. I’m no mathematician but I’m pretty sure when your team scores the same amount of goals as the opposition in a Premier League game of association football then that’s classed as a draw and not a ‘defeat’.
I understand the fact that a defeat would be more dramatic but surely even the most ambitious journalist cannot expect United fans- or the general public – not to notice that the Reds didn’t actually lose. It seems the zeal to chastise De Gea has now gotten so great newspapers are willing to re-write history to do so. Not since the ‘We Won 1-1″ headline of the New York Post following the USA national sides draw with England can I remember such an erroneous headline.
