Nick Pope


Recommended Posts

He's been immense. Having a brilliant defence in front of you helps but he's been near flawless everytime he's been called upon. 

 

Seems very commanding and in charge of his box as well. How the hell do you score when you've got that plus Schar/Botman/Tripper/Burn in front of him? No wonder its's the best defence in the league :lol:

Obviously they’ve all been immense but it is a massive help when you’ve six players in front of you grafting and trying to ensure the ball doesn’t reach your own third. Burn’s goal yesterday came from him and Willock pressing hard in the last 10 yards of the pitch. Contrast that with the almost constant pressure the back line was under when Bruce and Benitez were in charge.

BTW £10m What a fuckng signing.

 

The whole distribution shite is bollocks.  He's a superb shot stopper and the way he reads the game is mint. He's quick of his line and superb.  I feel so comfortable with him in net.  He's fucking miles better than Pickford.

That was the type of save that's so good it feels like we've scored. Absolutely amazing that he even got a hand to it let alone a solid enough touch to nick it over the bar. He's such a quality keeper. Full credit to Brucey for recommending the signing to the former Bournemouth manager.

Aye, also his distribution is brilliant funnily enough. The drop off when Dubravka come in for the cup game was noticeable imo with the quality of balls out from the keeper, Pope is so accurate with his throws and long passes.
