    He's not done anything for us to deserve credit for before today though. He's genuinely been * awful apart from today.

    Probably made more saves this afternoon than he did all of last season.

    Good game but to try and make out people have been harsh on him is a joke. There's a reason that was his first game in a year.

    The slagging he took last season was way over the top.

    He was and is nowhere near as bad as people think.

    Completely disagree. I think he got a lot of leeway when it came to his performances because he was Rodgers' signing and Rodgers was in the press bigging him up.

    There's a reason he got whipped off at half time and was never seen again. Rodgers didn't even trust him in the cups.

    He was a complete bomb scare and looked terrified anytime he played.

    BR on de Vries: "You see today why I have him in the team. Testament to how professional he is and how hard he's worked."


    BR: "Towards the end when the ball was coming into the box he showed his agility and concentration to make the saves."

    He came in injured, then had his first game against Barca after they themselves got beaten by weak opposition. He got shelled and never quite recovered from his knock, and when he did he Gordon was first choice.

    I'll agree he was very poor last season, but he was POTY with Nottingham Forest just months before that. I think he was pushed in too quick at the wrong time (which even BR admits) and never was able to show his true quality. He showed it this preseason and the Sunderland game in particular demonstrated that he's actually quite a solid keeper. Today solidified that.

    DD: "Such a lovely ground to play football. It’s been over a year since my last competitive game so I was looking forward to it."


    DD: "You never know when your opportunity is going to come along and when you come in you want to keep that cleansheet."

    DD: "Sometimes as a keeper you have the opportunity to show what you’ve got, sometimes not."

    DD: "You have to produce those saves, you just have to take the opportunity to produce them.

    DD: "Once you come in and there’s an unbeaten run it’s a pressure game and you want to do the best of your ability.


    DD: "No matter where you go you’re happiest when you play. This is a special club and being here is a privilege.

    Also noticed he gave his gloves to the young one behind the net at full time, and shook the other ones hand as well. Classy gesture from the big man.

    Now there is the player I saw at Nottingham Forest. So glad to see him finally playing as well as he can
