Pickford is the choice we wanted then, but i confess I'm a little disappointed. I genuinely hope he is as good as the talk of highly promising career suggests, but for me there are too many unanswered questions.

I believe a keeper at a relegation team often stands out because of the sheer volume of action they're involved in every game. How will he perform in games where he see's much less action? Is his concentration level high enough to do almost nothing but still be alert and ready for a 70th minute counter attack or a shot out of the blue?
How does he react to an expectation of having to keep a clean sheet every game, rather than knowing at Sunderland goals were inevitable and keeping it below 3 was acceptable?
Is he really experienced enough for European football? - the differing styles of play compared to EPL, some god awful grounds such as in Ukraine etc.
Also, how many players have we seen with first season syndrome where they look like rockstars but then can't repeat it again? Michu springs to mind here as a prime example.

Again, i wish him nothing but tremendous success, but i would much prefer proven experience from Butland or Foster than the possibility of someone who could be great but needs to prove it.

Totally gobsmacked! We've just bought the best young keeper in the Premier . Likely to be our number 1 for years. 😍.

Have to disagree Woburn, he's a decent keeper, but for me, Butland is where are money should have been spent and he's only a year older than Pickford.

Sorry Worcester but I don't agree with any of your concerns. He's coming to Everton not Barcelona. Going on about concentration levels for the 70th minute and not conceeding more than 2 goals a game but expected to keep a clean sheet. He's a fantastic keeper already, with one season under his belt. Unless he loses the plot or money goes to his head he's only going to get better and better. Some people like Barkley needs constant mothering and telling off like a naughty kid. Pickford has played every international level and I believe to be a true professional. I was excited over the other 4 main targets but Pickford really did get me excited. She don't know it yet but the missus won't be reading her book tonight 😉.
I've never understood why clubs hate paying out for goalkeepers. To me they are the most important player on the pitch. If you got a top goal scorer but a keeper that let's everything in you're going to lose. Whereas if your keeper is world class but the team is struggling to score you're now expecting a point.
Pickford will be worldclass. And all these morons saying De Gea cost less than 20 million so now must be worth 90 million because of Pickford is talking utter shite.

Looking forward to the new season. Going to be our best one yet.

Sorry Bullens but what has Butland done exactly?

Happy with Pickford we are building a team of young exciting players, been a long time coming.

He is reliable a good shot stopper quick of his line, easily the best keeper in the prem for my money and England's number one by a distance.
He also is good with his feet and commands his area.
