I remember Howard making a similar gaff costing us a game, making a save when a yard behind the line, think it was at the park end. Tonight reminded me of that, the near frozen in time catch of the ball... a foot over the line.
Overall I think Pickford is a similar level to Howard, you could argue a is better at x, and b is better at y, but ultimately, neither as good as Nigel Martyn. Both prone to errors that stem from concentration.
I wouldnt know were to find a replacement though, I'm sure there are plenty who 'might' be better, but I'm not sure.
I used to mention Leno but he's at arsenal now, timo Horn was decent, but no idea if he still is, Pavlenka too.
Joe Hart is only 32 and is 6ft5, might satisfy some :D
