The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern definitely agree…
There has been a longstanding debate in the Transfer Tavern surrounding two of the country’s top goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois and David De Gea.
Certainly, both are fantastic goalkeepers – undoubtedly amongst Europe’s best – but given their standing at two of England’s best clubs, and given their Atletico Madrid history, comparisons between the players are inevitable.
In the pub, the main question is always about who is the better player: Courtois, with his excellent aerial ability and positioning, or De Gea, who is probably Europe’s best shot stopper?
Whilst the debate will reign on forever in the Transfer Tavern, it would appear as though most fans are fairly convinced on the topic, with a whopping 79% of fans polled on the matter recently suggesting that Courtois is the better of the duo.
Of course, it is tough to disagree with that sentiment at this point, given Chelsea’s success – but our landlord is shocked that fans are so convinced.
Do you agree?
