Where has it been said he is?Why he is England's undisputed first choice? Pope (excellent modern keeper but some mistakes here and then) and Deano should surely get a chance.
He's like an excitable puppy. Rushes from one place to the next.He's so weird. Had an excellent game vs Spurs and then back to being shit again. Has some serious concentration issues. Our attack can do as well as they are but with him in net you've got no chance of top 4.
Its like when Hart used to be so pumped up that he would make easy things look difficult.The problem with Pickford he is too pumped up and explosive. Take the second goal tonight, it is straight at him, but Pickford decides to do a jump and tries to swat it away. The reaction didn't merit the quality of the strike. It wasn't powerfully hit and was straight at him, but the way he attempts to save it is like a 'think fast' reaction.
The first goal is inexcusable. Become erratic since that Origi goal.
My eternal worry though is that he'll pick the worst possible time (i.e in the later stages of a tournament) to drop an absolute clanger for England.I honestly don't think Southgate will drop him until he does something crazy for England. He's always pretty solid for the NT.
