Ya gotta give him at least a season (2 windows) surely?

The rot has been set deep in recent times.

We're just interested in how the new manager is going to pan out and what sort of team he's going to build so we're looking for clues at the mo and discussing what the final picture could look like.

I don't think anyone on here is not ready to give him time, just mentioning one or two things from his past we should maybe be aware of - more to see if he improves that with us, rather than to use as a stick to beat him with.

It's been a roller-coaster couple of first weeks and it will take a long while to settle - especially when you see the quality on the bench at the moment - we know they are not just here to make up the numbers, but each one will need time to settle in with various combinations of teammates and tactics.

On the whole, I'm very positive and I expect us to be a bit of a surprise this season for some.

Not worried by Tosun at this time. If he's a 1-in-3 striker at this level, then mathematically there's about a 50% chance that he'll have one stretch of at least 6 matches without scoring.

I’m still not sure on Pickford’s Top 4 credentials, although I like him a lot, he doesn’t make me feel entirely calm, and I feel a top goalkeeper should.

Southall did in the 80’s for example, as did Martyn in his stint with us, and they were both top class.

Howard was an excellent keeper in his pomp with us, but he never made me feel calm, and he wasn’t top level either.

I’m probably talking shit, but it’s just how I feel (although I’m sure I would feel calmer if Pickford also had a solid, pacey backline in front of him)

I think Pickford's already the best keeper in the Prem not named Hugo Lloris.

You think he’s better than De Gea?

Maybe. It's debatable as there is
Lloris, De Gea, Ederson, Kasper, Allison, Kepa and even Fabianski on his day.

On his prem form last year I'd say not but on his World Cup form definately....just hope he can raise his game to those levels for us this year.

I'm just not a huge De Gea fan.  He's good, mind, but I don't think great.

De Gea, Loris and Ederson are the only 3 prem keepers better than Pickford, not by much like

He’s that little bit better in every department.

I can see the case for Ederson, I'd rate him and Pickford about equally.
