As you probably guess from other posts after this and other games I totally believe that Pickford is a major issue. His inability to command his box is putting immense pressure on what isnít a strong defence anyway. Coupled with his usually awful distribution and stupid short passes out to marked defenders/midfielders, at best he is a championship keeper. Forget his England number 1 shirt - that was a freak when Joe Hart went shite.
I would sell him tomorrow for any realistic offer
Ancelotti will learn more about them tonight, each game, he'll get more of an idea who needs replacing
With Richarlison, DCL, Kean, upfront options arent too bad
Bernard has looked better and got more on the ball the last couple of games.
Midfield - we have a lot of hope riding on Gomes and Gbamin, hopefully we get to see them both before season end. Need an option on the right though.
Defensively, Holgate, Digne, Mina, all capable. Right back.... we need one, I like Sidibie, but he wanders (might be fine with better players around him). Some more CB cover too.
Keeper... We arent going to go out and spend 30mil on a keeper again. If someone becomes available that could be an improvement, fine. Until then, I think we just need to slap Pickford in the head every day until he gets through mental puberty. He's like Barkley, 25 going on 13.
