My opinions on most of our players are in line with most none Everton fans.
No one outside of our forums think Pickford has had a good season. No one thinks DCL is a great prospect
We've been here before time and time again in fact. Rodwell Cadamateri branch etc etc etc.
I'm not saying Pickford is shit. I'm not saying he won't make a great keeper. He sure hasn't been good this season though. I don't know why people pretend he has.
Non Everton fans don't watch Everton games, unless we're plying their team, though. We aren't a fashionable club that people enjoy watching (like City, Spurs, Liverpool etc). So when people see the highlights reel on MOTD of Pickford conceding over and over they're bound to think he's been poor. It's all about perception, and this is what you're failing to grasp.
It's the same on here, many of our opinions of other teams players are skewed by the fact we simply don't watch them regularly. We rely on other peoples opinions and highlight reels.
Pickford has been good this year. The majority of Everton fans recognise this, and any pundit/reporter/journalist worth listening to will tell you the same. Has he made some errors? Of course! Who hasn't? Even Ederson has been guilty of a couple howlers, he's still a top keeper.
The comparisons to Rodwell and Cadamateri are silly. Most Evertonians could have told you they had limitations to their game, especially the latter.
Pickford is the best 'keeper we've had since Martin (and possibly Howard's early days). He's already one of the best in the league, and will only get better. I honestly have no idea what you and his other detractors are expecting? And why you're failing to acknowledge how good he has been, but rather focussing on the small amount of errors he's made. It must be exhausting being so negative all the time.
