Just wondering what are people's opinions on Pickford replacing Courtois? He had a fantastic World Cup and he was Everton's player and players player of the year although not saying much. He does have quality distribution.

Agree0 Disagree1

I think he’s massively over hyped by The English, and I personally see him as no more than mediocre. Unfortunately, that’s the case with most of the keepers we’re linked to, so I’d only sign him because he’s home grown. Isn’t that The case with Schmeichel, too though? -is so, I’d prefer him, as he’d probably be much cheaper.
Really think we should go for Donnarumma.

I would rather see Butland or Schmiecheal between the sticks, half the price and just as capable as Pickford!
I'm shocked no one has mentioned Geronimo Rulli or that no one has been linked to him. Always looked like a very solid keeper to me .

Pickford is obviously a great goalkeeper. 24 years old and made some absolutely cracking saves at the World Cup. I hope Chelsea get him. If he’s England’s No.1 then he’s not that bad. Player of the year at Everton aswell. Can’t wait to get rid of that loud mouth Courtois!

Joe Hart was also England number one and he can’t even find a club to take him on loan. It’s not as if he’s declined suddenly. He’s still at the same level he’s always been. So being England’s number 1 means nothing.

Joe Hart isn’t the same level as he’s always been though has he? He was brilliant for City for a few years. Bad example really.

Donnarumma is massively overrated IMO. He had one good season and he got over hyped.

27 Jul 2018 20:34:38
Think it's unfair to call Pickford overhyped. He had a wonderful season at Sunderland, a great debut season at Everton where the fans love him and was awesome at the World Cup. He's going from strength to strength and would only improve at a club like ours and he would thrive playing Sarri style football.

You are right Fuser, I remember how pundits sang the praise Joe Hart before now but today its like he's lost. I guess Pickford's price tag will determine if he would be a worthy investment (and we know he will be expensive) . IMO For the price that he would command- it'll be too much a risky investment. I prefer Chelsea go for Schmeichel if they are targeting any EPL goalkeeper.

Pickford is overhyped, he is nowhere near as good as what is made of him. In the world cup he got plaudits for what. playing against Tunisia, Panama, Belgium Reserves, Columbia and Sweden. We need a top class keeper at a club like Chelsea. 60 mil for Pickford is stupid, why not Alison who is head and shoulders above.

Tbh, his not the only English player to get the over hyped plaudits. It's common here, it was done with Joe Hart, Andreas Townsend, Lennon, Alli, etc etc. The pressure and hype melts these players.

I wouldn’t say Joe Hart was anything bar average his entire career. He’s perhaps a little below average now but I wouldn’t say he’s noticeably declined in recent years.

28 Jul 2018 08:59:40
Also think that's unfair on Hart. He made some top saves for City when they won the league in 2012 and was decent for a few years around then. I think he got a little big headed and that's when his performances dropped.
