Gunn (b. 22/01/96) was in goal for the England u21 international yesterday. Pickford (b. 07/03/94) was on the bench. Can't help feeling that, if Gunn was at Sunderland and Pickford was with us, Gunn would be playing in the PL and Pickford would be kicking his heels. Also wondering whether we would be linked with a move for Gunn.
If we truly are going to buy in another 'top' goalie and we get rid of one of Bravo (please! please!) and Caballero (noooo!!!!!!) I hope Gunn can go out on loan to a PL or Championship side before he decides to leave.
Isn't Pickford England under21's regular first choice keeper?
He's certainly played more times for England u21s than Gunn has. Frankly I'm amazed Gunn got in the squad even as he's only played 4 games
Im not normally one to complain but that is fucking ridiculous, third choice PL keeper should be playing regularly in the under23 league.
I know you're not doubting me, but here is the link for my source.http://uk.soccerway.com/players/angus-gunn/217678/
Amongst the hidden data on the page, he hasn't played in any first team Domestic Cups and has been on the bench for 3 International Cups (CL).
He's played 4 times in PL2, Grimshaw (19 y.o.) has played 3 times, Muric (18 y.o.) once and O'Brien (21 y.o.), now on loan at St Mirren - Jeez!, 11 times early in the season.
There's no data in Soccerway for the Premier League Cup, so Gunn may also have played in some of the 6 games that we were in that competition for.
I'd be interested in Doug's opinion, or that of anyone else who takes a keen interest in the youth teams, about these four young goalies.
