James Collins' first league goal for the visitors sealed the three points, his stunning 20-yard lob inside 30 seconds giving Bury goalkeeper Trevor Carson no chance at Gigg Lane.

Blackwell said: "To be fair, we kept going, but we didn't work their goalkeeper enough. Sometimes the players have to take responsibility and certain players didn't do that. I'm not going to accept it.

"I've said to the board we need to change players and some new players are going to have to come in. I'm well aware of what's wrong here and I've been here seven days.

"Something's got to happen so I've got to change it and I will change it the best I can.

"Some of the signings have been garbage. The jury's out on some of them and I make judgements quickly. Unlike Abu Hamza, who took 14 years, I'll make a judgement quickly and I'll move them out."

think you're forgetting that De Gea plays for MU and therefore is the bestest and stats are meaningless unless they show this. Lastly, the understanding of goalkeeping in still the stone ages in England, so I wouldn't pay too much attention the warm secretions that pundits and various hangers-on, have been emitting over De Gea.
