Agree with this in general, however of the GK's we have Hugo is by far and away the most reliable. Even with his brain snaps. Gaz and Vorm are bog average.And the problem with a poor keeper is it spreads throughout the defence no matter how much you try and juggle it
All these Jose critics should consider this aspect
WTF is he supposed to do?
Clean sheet stats isn't a good measure at all on how good a 'keeper is, that's more down to the defence. Take a look at the percentage of shots saved that he's faced, and you will see there isn't a better 'keeper for that metric. There are now starting to produce XG for 'keepers (so taking into account the quality of shot faced) and he heads up that list too.Pope, Henderson and time a lesser extent, Heaton are all more promising options.
Pope and Henderson are up at the top of the clean sheet charts, English (so home-grown and wouldn’t take up overseas slots) and I suspect could be obtained without being molested too much financially.
Hugo is too erratic and too old. Great shot stopper at times but makes too many errors and has absolute dog wank distribution.
