It’s getting to the point with Jordan Pickford where the Toffees have had enough. The England #1 has made mistakes his bread and butter this season, and yesterday saw a lot of the travelling Everton fans at St James Park draw the line after yet another shocker from the young 25-year-old goalkeeper.
Even when you can get over the displays and complete idiocy from Pickford, the problem that a lot of the Toffees have with the goalkeeper is his arrogance. The shot-stopper who famously had the words ‘get the rave on’ printed onto his boots has gone a long time since anyone has been raving over his efforts, and if he carries on the way he’s been going then Marco Silva will have no choice but to drop him.
Before Pickford, Everton fans were desperately short in the goalkeeping department. The likes of Joel Robles and Maarten Stekelenburg were not up to the standard required at Goodison Park, and despite a great start to life last season in which Pickford became England’s number one, it now seems that the young shot-stopper has got some serious work to do to repair his reputation.

Someone needs to have a word with Pickford! No heart though in that squad.

Still think Pickford should go!. He should of got red card for penalty and Sylva is not strong enough and should go too …. woeful and embarrassing in so many ways.

The Toffees are far from pleased with Pickford’s performances and are desperate for someone to talk some sense into their erratic shot-stopper.
