Surely Jordan Pickford Must Be England Goalkeeper? Time to be decisive Mr Southgate


The first time I saw Jordan Pickford play it was maybe 5-6 years ago as a raw young keeper playing as an on loan keeper for Darlington away at Mansfield Town if I recall in a conference game. Darlington were starting their downwards spiral that has now ended and they are clawing their way back to the league. For example yesterday beating Bradford PA 2-1.

In that game I was sat with a handful of Darlington fans behind a goal in the cold night. Sadly for Darlington he was only a loan player and moved on

Now he is the Everton goalkeeper and watching the first half of their game against Arsenal he was the reason the score was 1-1 at half time making 8 superb saves.

England are bereft of good goalkeepers these days with few playing in the premiership . Joe Hart plies his trade for West Ham this season and is having a less than spectacular season. Errors abound. Most commentators and fans would agree he is far from the ideal England keeper. In fact for me his days are done .

Despite some delusional media comment and hype England will do well in Russia at the 2018 World Cup to reach the last eight.

With some friendlies on the horizon for the next 8 months it is time to play Pickford. Although not the final item he is on form the best England keeper. img_5730
