I've posted before that Pickford is a good keeper but he has a fault with shots above shoulder height which defies biomechanics and results in a goal.
He did it at West Ham in the last game of the season and he did it again tonight against Belgium.
His fault is he uses the wrong hand by crossing his arm across his body, considerably reducing his reach and taking a split second longer as a result.
As at West Ham he actually got a touch to tha ball but would have easily reached the shot if he had gone with his right hand.
This needs pointier and coached out of him asap.

Picked that one up myself as well Fancy, spot on there mate,

So you think he should have saved it?

I think what he is saying Woburnblue is that Pickford still has someway to go before being the finished article. Whilst having the potential to be a top keeper he has many small faults that need working on.

Two parts to this. No1 both Delph and Rose were the culprits that cost the goal and allowed the space for the shot.

No2 Pickford would have expected Rose to show him the line meaning he was in the right place for the driven cross in the 6 yard box. Due to Rose showing him inside it meant he was out of position, slightly and unable to fully reach the shot.

The goal was not his fault at all.

However, he needs to improve his saves away from danger. Although again, in this game the two incidents were very difficult. Both times the Ball was hit with pace and with a player in front of him.

Nowhere, near the finished article but people are dying to rip him apart. So far in three games 3 against him and not one of them are his fault.

Considering his age Pickford is at an advanced stage in his career development. We have a keeper that will be as good as any in a few years. He will be the best keeper we have had since Southall.

We need a keeper that is as good as that if we are to win anything.

If I’m honest, I couldn’t give a monkeys what the pundits say, good or bad. I just want him to have a confidence boosting tournament so that he can be even better for us next season.

Fancy, I’ve just read an article about him using the wrong hand in the echo, here are some quotes from it;

A leading goalkeeping coach who worked with former Everton and USA goalkeeper Tim Howard, however, believes that Pickford's technique was correct - and that he actually changed his own goalkeeping coaching to reflect that technique.

It goes on to explain that certain goalies are faster athletes and can use this technique, not only does it suit them better but they get to the ball faster than using their top hand, ‘the bottom hand can be said to be more effective at covering a greater distance of the goal. ’

People fast to critise one of our own.

Be styrne, was going to add, the momentum of throwing that hand across may propel his body faster in that direction.
Tests need to then determine if the movement momentum out weighs the short fall in reach.
Not sure on that one.
