A bad keeper doesn't win the Golden Gloves award two seasons on the trot.
And to say Ederson has been poor he's level with Alisson with 20 clean sheets, and Alisson has another game midweek he could quite easily concede in. If that happens then Eddie will probably pick up the award for the third season on the trot, not bad for a "shit keeper"! Eh?
Those of you say Eddie isn't a good shot stopper, well ok, he isn't the best. De Gea(8) and Kasper Schmeichel(7) are both better shot stoppers but they have only kept 15 clean sheets in PL games between them.
Ederson has his faults but don't let his recent howlers cloud your minds. He's saved us from lots of goals many times since he's been here, and set up many attacks, let's not forget that.
And most who say they want him out don't name a keeper who will be a better fit for us.
Nick Pope? Lol.
Our clean sheet record or Ederson's golden gloves is more conducive to the way we play than goalkeeping brilliance. It's simple maths; keep more of the ball and you'll concede fewer chances and subsequent goals.
The truth is, sadly, Ederson is probably the biggest reason we haven't won the UCL yet. We've never lacked ability to score goals but he's always be suspect in those games. Spurs both legs were horror shows, Lyon was diabolical, should've conceded against Bellingham and we conceded 6 against Madrid and I can recall maybe 1 big save in all those games.
He's a poor shot stopper, he won't win us any points. The best thing we can hope for is he doesn't cost us many.
