Just following on from Ed025 crazy comment about T-Rex arms being in top 5 keepers in league. Who is he better than? I would say below are all better. And of course he's improved he couldn't have gotten any worse.


{Ed025's Note - come on jimmy dont let them red tinted glasses cloud your judgement mate, de gea has gone and we all know that, lloris has been awful for a long time now and there is a reason arsenal got rid of martinez, mendy and dubravka are no better than pickford either, for me hes on par with schmeichel but dont let your bitterness get in the way of a good story mate..

Agree2 Disagree0

On par with Schmeichel 😂😂😂 Take of the blue tinted glasses more like.

{Ed025's Note - i honestly believe that rudder, of course if he goes back to his old antics i will be proved wrong, but as we all know mate that hardly ever happens.. :)

I thought Pickford had a decent season and very good Euros. I think Schmeichel had a good season and excellent Euros. Pickford has improved this last 12 months but I think Schmeichel has been at his current level for a few seasons now so whilst I’m not skating Pickford it’s Schmeichel for me in a straight shoot out.

24 Jul 2021 12:37:17
Arsenal are a shambles, them letting go of Martinez doesn't really say much about how good he is, he was fantastic for Villa last season. I do have to say though, I think DDG and Lloris are finished, Schmeichel is a tad overrated especially by himself, and Dubravka just isn't a top keeper.

I still don't rate Pickford as a top 5 keeper in the league though, Alisson, Ederson, Mendy, Meslier, Martinez and from the last few seasons Patricio are all better than him.

{Ed025's Note - well that puts him 6th then zpecialone, hardly a mile away was i mate?..

24 Jul 2021 12:42:28
Goes back to his old antics?

Behave Ed, this new and improved version still isn’t as good as schmeichel.

{Ed025's Note - i beg to differ wassa mate..

24 Jul 2021 12:56:54
Sorry Ed, but Courtois nailed it when he alluded to the fact he is too short to be a top keeper. That is, unless he joined a Pygmy league, in which case he’d be the best in their league, even with his short arms. I bet he has to ask big Duncan Disorderly to get his monthly self help mags off the top shelf for him cause he can’t reach. 😂😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - some good things come in small parcels VVVV..

24 Jul 2021 13:12:59
Ed025 said 2 seasons ago that Pickford was on a par with Allison. The man is clearly demented haha.

{Ed025's Note - the gap is closing john, you mark my words mate..

24 Jul 2021 15:00:48
Alisson, Ederson, Martinez, Pope and Mendy are the top 5 in my opinion. In fact those 5 are streets ahead of the rest. Pickford is probably in the next bracket with the likes of Leno, Meslier, Fabianski, Schmeichel and Patricio. So he's possibly top 10. Not even close to the top 5 though. But all fans have a natural subconscious bias. Us reds fans are guilty of it too.

I agree with Ed025 that De Gea and Lloris are gone though. Bang average nowadays.

24 Jul 2021 16:00:59
The one good thing for Pickford is that with those short arms he never has to reach into his pocket to get his wallet out in the pub to buy a round.

{Ed0666's Note - Listen I’m all for banter but don’t you think the Pickford shirt arms thing has been milked too much. I just don’t see how people find it funny anymore? To be fair to the guy he’s improved month on month don’t get me wrong he’s still mediocre but let’s give the guy some credit instead of pick on his supposed deformities. I mean no ones taking the piss out of Keita for being short. You can’t help what you’re born with.

24 Jul 2021 18:17:30
I like Pickford and think he's done well for England. He does make too many mistakes though (more than most others) . I don't think he'll ever be world class but can't say he isn't any good.

24 Jul 2021 18:22:52
Pickford had a rocky spell and has come through it and settled. There is no doubt he has improved into a fine goalkeeper.
Schmeichel helped his team win the Premiership and is a level above Pickford having proved his quality and reliability over several seasons now. To be fair, he's also behind a better defence too.
Pickford still has scope to keep improving (and I suspect he will), although he is always going to be at a slight disadvantage with his height. He's obviously worked damned hard to improved his overall game to counter that.
Credit to him for battling against that and the adversity he's faced, he's got cojones for sure. Many others have wilted under the pressure he's been under at times.

24 Jul 2021 19:54:16
Ignoring the pickford thing for a moment, but he did have a good second half the season and excellent euros. martinez was excellent last season culminating in winning the copa America (I think he was motm and possibly player of tournament) and he was better than the other arsenal goalkeepers.

24 Jul 2021 14:25:51
Pickford is absolute rubbish, he should never have been England’s no.1! Sorry but he still too prone to making stupid mistakes. The only reason we didn’t concede that many goals in the euros is because of our defenders, and even, it’s not as if we had the most difficult run in the tournament. The decent team we played was in the final and they beat us!

{Ed025's Note - your name should be jee bitter, he was very good in the euro,s and made some very good saves mate..

24 Jul 2021 15:59:47
Hahahaha Ed did you watch the semi finals? Three of his goal kicks went to opposition players and he nearly did a Karius when he rolled it out from his T-Rex arms. He was barely tested in that tournament. Every keeper listed is better.

{Ed025's Note - and thats why he won the golden gloves award was it IPC?, he was actually very good mate ...dont be so bitter..

24 Jul 2021 20:06:43
In fairness to Keita, he’s not a goalkeeper so being substantially over 6ft isn’t a prerequisite. I think it did make me laugh when Courtois literally dismissed him as a keeper for being a bit napoleonesque. I still think there’ll be mileage in the short arse stuff when he drops a cross or can’t reach a shot a bigger keeper would get.

24 Jul 2021 22:00:28
Ed25 is just trolling us here. When he makes such deluded comparisons like this one, it is best to ignore him. Pickford closing the gap with Alison? Don’t quit your day job, Ed. Better chance of me winning the lottery (which I never play) than that happening anytime soon.

As for Pickford, he’s decent and like Ed said, mediocre and I see some improvement but he is still mediocre to average so I guess, that’s an improvement.

{Ed0666's Note - leave off eds 025 mate he’s just had a pint of bitter 😂
