Quite possibly. But as I say the saves he made. All top keepers make those. And I'm not interested in their keeper. He can make as many mistakes as he likes for all I care.He made some good early saves to prevent a 3 or 4 nil lead for them though? Their goalie was at fault for our goal in my opinion.
Problem is some on here think he is a world class keeper, so others who don’t become critical of him.
I look at him as a great reaction keeper, but firmly believe his positioning and decision making are poor
The 2nd and 3rd are definite examples of that last night
He is an average keeper who can make saves that are outstanding- but overall gets the basics wrong
His distribution! That's become an urban myth as well. Fed up with the amount of times he kicks it straight out of play. Did it last night on a few occasionsThis. His distribution is better than average too, I'll give him that.
He does better for England imo because international is a different game. It's so basic tactically because these teams don't train together that much. It's only a few games at a time, and it's fueled by pure adrenaline which gets him off.
It's the long slog of a league season where he doesn't keep his focus and his flaws get exposed over time.
He belongs with Pogba on the Stud for Country, Dud for Club XI.
Saving 1v1s is what separates meh keepera from great ones. I imagine he's poor at them generally compared to other keepers.First poor game of the season but ironically kept the score from being more of an embarrassment.
Bad on the 2nd (never really cut the angle) and 4th (stand up and he has that) but basically 1 on 1's.
I’m saying he’s not crap.So you telling us having a crap keeper behind a crap defense is not a problem?
Yer that will be all the times he’s slicing it out because he’s dealing with a crappy back pass that’s been under hit to him by one of our defenders whose running out of ideas because we’re playing deep, being pressed and he’s under pressure due to said back pass.His distribution!

Agreed. The only issue is he's supposed to be one of our better players. He needs to be great sometimes.Clearly could have done better for the second (positioning), third (positioning) and fourth (as was said in analysis, there's only one place Jota can put that ball, so why isn't Pickford aware of that?)... But equally the defence was largely abysmal so it seems very odd indeed to blame the keeper for that result.
He wasn't great, but others were far, far worse.
Not at all. He does it when he's under no pressure, regularlyYer that will be all the times he’s slicing it out because he’s dealing with a crappy back pass that’s been under hit to him by one of our defenders whose running out of ideas because we’re playing deep, being pressed and he’s under pressure due to said back pass.
Then yes they happen all the time.
