Some good points raised there.Wouldn't know where to start anymore to be honest, suffice to say no'1 keeper may be up for grabs again. Also dependent if Gareth is going to start treating players equally again (inconsistent punishments) and get Greenwood down the right where he should be, with him right and Stirling left, would see us have a little less predictability and be able to mix it up a bit in terms of attacking threats.
Shaw also lost a bit favour too when he went injured from a squad, no different to many in doing that, hasn't been picked since, but might be knocking on the door again.
He doesn't seem keen on Bassaka either, ok, 'attempted' the most tackles in the prem so far isn't may be a stat that suggests these are tackles that were also won, but at least he is one rarity nowadays of a player who can get to ground and tackle.
Like the youth approach he has nurtured somewhat, but in the international games there have been, we must have played more players than most, why we went out of the nations cup for me.
It's a timely question though, are any like Walker nearing the end or not flexible enough for when we go from back 4/5 to a 3?
There is something niggling me in these times of a favoured youth approach and that's yes, the number of games referred to above and that not all of these players are getting regular starts at their clubs, so picking on form may prove difficult yes.
Agree with the first 2 points made but not sure I agree with the last. Pickford is obviously the most experienced but I would argue that Pope is a more experienced keeper than Henderson.Agree 100%. @Trent_Fisher Keeper wise. Depends on what he is picking on.
Current game time? Pope/Pickford, Henderson
Current overall form? Where do you start on that one, and all keepers are under a larger microscope than other positions and all have an error in them, the more game they have had, the larger the microscope and potential for an error by rule of time average.
Experience? (also being no indication of future promise however) Pickford, Henderson, Pope.
I think much of the issue is a lack of balance. We have great young players in the wide positions or creative attacking midfielders but only really Rice, Henderson and possibly Phillips to hold.We have an abundance of exciting young talent at the moment, picking a squad won't be easy.
