    I still don’t get how this guy is no.1 for England. I’ve never seen a supposed top keeper palm so many shots straight back into the middle of the six yard box.

    Heaton will get his place back.

    Barthez won a Champions League, World Cup and European Championship and played for some of the best teams in the world. Insulting to him to compare him to a muppet like Pickford.

    Heaton is a really good goalkeeper, one of the best in the league. Pickford isn't good enough to play for England.

    I never rate him, not a single bit. The only reason he’s no 1 in England is because he has better ball distribution than Heaton. And still even if you want to rate his ball distribution isn’t that high as well.

    Definitely. Anyone here could give a description of him at age 20 or 30 and the police would find him in minutes. That stash and long hair was as dependable as they come.

    Horror show yesterday, and you would have to question his mentality with his off the ball antics and how quickly and how often he shits the bed during a season when things start to go south.

    I think thats fulfilled my cliche quota for today.

    My bad, I'm comparing him to post trophies Barthez. The eccentric one.

    If Southgates reasons for not selecting Smalling are to hold any ground Pickford shouldn't be near the squad.. He is an absolute calamity.

    I've never been a fan. He's massively overrated in my opinion.

    Feels like his motivation took a nose dive after moving to Everton.

    :lol: Good one!

    Seaman was a really great and dependable keeper. Don’t think he reproduced his league form at international level quite as much.

    Heaton certainly deserves a shot at the number 1 spot if you ask me, his form of late has been sensational.

    The red card escape was miraculous, tbf. How did he manage that?

    I'd guess that the ref thought it was more accidental than to deny the opposition the chance, he fumbled the ball and "tackled" him as a result of falling afterwards

    I still felt Pope deserved to be first team over Pickford in the World Cup. Pickford is dodgy as heck.

    However, Heaton is the best English goalkeeper by far at the moment.

    He must have thought that really.

    Or was just gobsmacked by events - dropping the cross was a fairly hilarious unexpected clanger just on its own.

    Heaton was complete dogshit today so he's probably blown his chance of getting ahead of Pickford for the next internationals.

    His form has picked up recently which is nice but I said it a few weeks ago when his form was shocking, he should be dropped for a while to sort that fecking head out. He has serious mental issues that need sorting out before he gets to a top level as his actual ability has the potential to do so. This incident (there’s a video up) is bloody stupid of him at a time when the attitude of the club has taken two steps in the right direction.

    Angus Gunn is the guy long term for England, probably worth getting him in now.

    He doesn't look very dangerous. Rumour that some nasty person called him 'Butterfingers'' or something.

    How precious are some people? ‘Butterfingers’ being proffered as an insult cannot lead to a kerfuffle, surely?!

    Our loanee Dean Henderson has all the ingredients to be England and Man United No. 1 for years to come, in case De Gea leaves.

    By the looks of it he was getting relentlessly harassed and eventually snapped.

    If that's how it actually played out then no action should be taken against him (from Everton), footballers have the right of a life outside of work aswell.

    According to Daily Mail, he had no problems with him being called butterfingers etc but someone abused his GF and that's when he snapped.

    If that's the case then good on him.

    Why do people feel they have the right to annoy and abuse famous people while they are minding their own business? A sad reflection on society .

    The worst type are the one's that attack an actor/actress because of the character they play in a soap/drama/movie.

    What on earth goes through people's minds at that moment? Actually on second thoughts i don't want to know.
