I hope you are right but I have to be honest I don't see it. I remember ddg first season at utd when he was making mistakes due to poor judgement....you could still see he was a great shot stopper but I don't see it with pickford. I'm also not convinced at his ability to keep out long shots as was shown again yesterday....i think we 've been had at 30m.
He's only 23 (24 next month) and has played in the cluster fuck that was Sunderland, and now is with us another club in turmoil.
Keepers are raw at this age, not many are playing top flight footy as a number 1 choice so I think that tells you how able he is already. It's another 6 years before he hits his prime, believe me he's a top keeper for his age who will get better and better.
He makes errors because he's young, De Gea is a tough benchmark to hold him to, he's one of if not the world's best keepers.
The defence is the problem imo not the keeper, any keeper would struggle with the current issues we have
