Spanish Dave is 28 today

Happy Birthday to our Number 1, not sure if he's a Ja member so he may not see this message...

The CL Twitter account posted a compilation of a few of his saves in the competition, the save from Muriel away at Sevilla is one which stands out.

He's come along ways since the gangly, flappy handed stopper we signed in 2011, he's gone on to be arguably the best in the world, but weirdly, doesn't seem as confident for Spain. Maybe he just has less to do, maybe he's a bit more anxious? Either way, he's be great for us which is all that matters.

He will go down as an all time great from this generation of United/England players. With 17 appearances from the bench for United and 4 friendly appearances for England.

Can't help but feel he's wasting his career at United and I'm a diehard United fan.

We clearly aren't going to win any major honours anytime soon and for whatever reason, Spanish players that play in England never get the recognition they deserve in Spain (or Europe).

If he played for one of the big 2 in Spain, he would've been in every FIFA World XI team for the past 4/5 years, yet he's barely been nominated playing for us.
