Pickford for England ?

........................... While much of the focus was on Everton's attacking talents, two of Koeman's other key summer signings impressed at the other end as the Toffees kept their fourth successive clean sheet.
Former Sunderland keeper Pickford showed why the Merseyside club were willing to pay up to £30m with a string of smart saves, but it was Keane who stood out.
The 24-year-old centre-back, who arrived from Burnley for £25m, provided a calm authority throughout in a man-of-the-match performance, showing he was comfortable in bringing the ball out from the back and is even capable of chipping in with goals as the Toffees look to fill the void left by Romelu Lukaku from all over the pitch.
"It is the fourth clean sheet in a row and that starts with a team's good defensive organisation and a good goalkeeper," said Koeman. .................

of course he will be picked cos he has now joined a "big team" and already improved 100000% since he left us. Utter b*llocks. He was a class goalie for us and it should be regardless of who you play for.

Mr H, being an Everton fan, did not think Pickford was worth £30m although he accepted he was a good keeper and had time to develop.

But he has seen him save them 2 points already on the first day of the season and an away goal last night and he reckons maybe he WAS worth it after all.

I always knew he would be a great investment for them of course tongue

And yes, PIckford will be England's number one very soon, unless he is very, very unlucky.

H says : - "And yes, PIckford will be England's number one very soon, unless he is very, very unlucky."

Toffees like Baines and Jagielka had their purple patches but always seemed to be on the fringes of the England team.

Wonder what would have happened had they played in London ? Ask Jamie Carragher.

Always thought Jo Hart was over-hyped, but will be interesting to see if he "Makes a comeback," for England. And he now plays for a darling of a club under English ownership and control.

The press are already hyping up Butland as the #1, but he's hardly played for a year - But he's made of the right stuff. Forget Heaton  - he's at Burnley. Ask Keane if his move from Burnley to Everton got him recognition.

Why didn't young P get the ManC job ? Coz like Wenger,  Europe thinks the GK plays a lesser role.

You'll see that £30m was cheap at the price and he'll end up better than Southall.

Seem to remember all the big Euro teams playing this tikki takka crap until they got sussed. It'll be the same with this sweeper/goalie thing, teams will get round it.
Pickford is a very good keeper not sure like Mr H that he was £30mil good but time will tell.

"If I had to choose between dribbling past 5 players and scoring from 40 yards at Anfield or shagging Miss World , it would be a hard choice.
Thankfully I've done both"
