People are way, way too critical of keepers imo. They all make mistakes on the regular - Neuer, Buffon, the lot of them. (I can't actually remember De Gea making any mistakes in recent seasons, in fairness but he's like a cheat, so he doesn't count).Pickford's been absolutely superb. Even the pen he gave away last week, I don't class as a mistake. He had to throw everything on the line. It was a defensive mistake that cost the pen.
He's a great shot stopper every flaw he had I attribute to his age, the way he tries to play and the defence in front of him all of which can improve. He's the type of goalkeeper who would have thrived under Martinez style
I don't think we should be going overboard of the back of 1 good england game.Truth be told he's been pretty average for us so far admittedly behind an awful defensive unit although looked a lot better for england.I'm reserving judgement until he starts making match winning saves for us.
Like the first game against Stoke you mean?
Let's call a spade a spade we are god knows how many games in and he's been very average so far....hence having to go back to the stoke game. There's nowt wrong with backing players but he's not done enough to warrant the love so far in the same way dcl hadnt when people were saying he was our harry kane after the man city game. Of course I hope he does moving forward but dont feel we should rewrite history.
Best goalie in the league besides DeGea. Gonna be a worldie. Plays better with a central defense. Are you listening Moshiri, Bill, new manager etc etc etc. Aye.
Hey, I was just pointing out that he has done what you were asking for. Not rewriting history, being over the top or anything like that. I wouldn't say he's been average. He's been a definite improvement on our previous two incumbents. He's made mistakes but he's young for a goalkeeper and will hopefully improve even more.
Hes not even the 6th best in the league atm.
