I mean, sure I could be wrong, but I see Pickford as absolutely world class.  Did so before the World Cup.  We are privileged to have him, and need to keep him against all offers.  He's special.

Only downside is he's always played in front of atrocious defenses.  Until, fingers crossed, this coming season (when we are healthy).  I'm hopeful even Zouma/Holgate will be quite positive for him, but Mina joining the fray will really make a difference.

I've also always hoped that Pickford can be our Lloris, in terms of allowing us to play very aggressive, attacking football.  Not that he has to be quite that good, as Lloris is amazing.

But to allow Everton to take the step forward as a progressive club, much like Spurs did.

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

Best keeper in the world surely
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

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

I don’t think there’s even a debate about it.

I really dont rate Lloris but Pickford is clearly behind De Gea, Alisson and Ederson for me.

Pickford has done no where near enough to even be close to these players.

Even though I disagree, I like it just because it shows how taste in keepers, like art or music, must be so much in the eye of the beholder.  :D

I've always rated Lloris and prefer him to De Gea, but De Gea is the better keeper.

Pickford is great for us, but I don't fully trust him yet. I always feel whatever team he plays for, he'll concede a goal.

Did I just skim past a mad shout about De Gea not being very good?

Lloris is not the 'keeper he was. Many mistakes last season, and look at the WC Final for a prime example of issues with his concentration levels these days. De Gea and Ederson are the league's top two, no doubt. Jury is out on Kepa and Allison for the time being, though they are top 'keepers no doubt. Pickford falls into the top 3 at the moment for me.

Pissing myself at Fabianski being named in the top 5 there. Fuck off lolol

Out of interest how have you come to that conclusion ref pickford being the 3rd best in the league ? I've got to be honest and say that a couple of great games in the world cup aside, he's been very up and down imo and I don't feel totally confident in him at times.

Best Keeper in the world is easily between, De Gea, Lloris and Courtois (how has no one mentioned him yet btw?)
