Thought this myself when I saw it on SSN earlier.

Many lads I know who follow North End rate him very highly and really wanted to try and tie him down after his loan spell

 

Looks a very good long term option as said it has Butland written all over it imo, lifelong Sunderland fan from what I've read but hopefully he has the sense to jump a sinking ship

His decision making has been awful today so far. He looks a decent keeper but has a lot to learn.

 

He is still a young lad so it is to be expected. IMO he looks better than Butland did at this stage of his career.

 

I would say though that it is easier being a keeper at a club at the bottom of the table as you have more chances to impress but I think he would still be worth the risk based on what I have seen of him.

We already have a talented young keeper. His name is Robles. Koeman made a huge mistake in signing an aging Dutchman, but I don't see him admitting a mistake. (Sorry for the negative tone, but we should be making better use of the assets we have, not spending a fortune in a position where we already have talent waiting in the wings. Spend where the need is much greater.)

I saw Robles week in week out last season and I know plenty of Macums who all rave about Robles so added to what I've seen from him I'm fairly certain he is the better keeper

 

Straight swap then?

Robles has proven time and time again he isn't good enough. He's an ok back up but nowhere near the top quality keeper we desperately need.

 

Still not sold on Pickford. Granted he's having the season of his life so far but wouldn't be keen shelling top dollar for him he's nowhere near proven enough for that kind of transfer fee imo.

And when he becomes proven, the price doubles. Catch 22 but I say get him in January.

Forster Butland or Pickford would all be good buys tbh

 

The main reason I prefer Pickford is he's slightly younger than Butland who will always have a serious injury hanging over his head and although Forster who I rate isn't exactly old for a keeper he's nigh on 30 and would likely cost a similar amount

 

Younger more room for developing and has played very well in a piss poor side and looks very sturdy in comparison to Forster who like Hart is prone to bad costly clangers

Question; has anyone actually watched the main 3 mentioned week in week out?

 

I very much doubt anyone has nor with any other players we've been linked with or signed over the years, you don't have to watch someone week in week out to know or gauge who's better their suitability etc

Goalkeepers are a bit different though. I'm always wary about signing them because we don't see them that often. I guarantee that fans outside of Everton still thought Howard was a top keeper while we could see his huge deterioration.

I agree but I've seen enough of all three to know that each is a better option than Robles or Stek

i believe you do

 

I think that boils down to your defence of Joel, do you genuinely think that Pickford Butland or Forster are not improvements over Joel and Stek!?

 

Do or have you regularly watched any of the players over the years you've suggested or championed that would clearly improve our side? That's crazy logic to me tbh mate
